spieltrieb A classic of the genre. I bought the CDs when they were first released in 2003; nice to have them on BC now as well. I have never tired of hearing them.

Edward J Roller This vernal uncertainty may have promoted Steve's tremendous gift to us. Either way the timing is accurate.. The thereputic value is immesurable regardless of external forces altering our sense of safety and well being. Many thanks to the master for pay what you can as this is one of the finest in the canon of many.

mysticwolf75 Good memories of this - I originally bought the entire 4 disc collection back in 2004! Steve was very cool and sent me a deluxe signed gift box to nicely house both 2CD sets! This was early in my Steve Roach fandom. I still think this is one of his best, most ambitious works, and a true masterpiece in the ambient genre. I've always been a bigger fan of Steve's more ambient, atmospheric side, and this doesn't disappoint! How impressive to have the entire 4 discs as one continuous piece! Favorite track: Oracle.

about

Moving into the majestic realm of pure, non-rhythmic electro-acoustic soundworlds, MYSTIC CHORDS & SACRED SPACES is a stunning magnum opus 4-CD release marking a new milestone in Roach's history as a true artist of sound. His landmark statements -- including DREAMTIME RETURN, THE MAGNIFICENT VOID and STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE -- are all parts of the uninterrupted flow building to this release. After a recent run of rhythmically fused CD's, Roach moves into awe-inspiring sonic immersion, delving into a spiritual dimension of sound. Nearly 5 years in the making, this groundbreaking work creates a new sense of 'ambient orchestration' through a constantly shifting flow of soundworlds and textures that enters a sacred realm of music.

"Abandoning all conventional notions of music as melody, harmony and rhythm, MYSTIC CHORDS & SACRED SPACES allows the listener blissful hours on the high frontier between deep listening music and the spirituality of pure sound." -- Stephen Hill, Hearts of Space Radio

Disc 1: Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces … The sacred and divine aspects of sound are the heart and soul of these five innerconnected pieces.

Disc 2: Labyrinth … The path through the labyrinth is one of choices and consequences. These nine soundworlds were drawn from the metaphor of the labyrinth and the passing from one ring to the next, reaching the center.

Disc 3: Recent Future … Time, memory, reflection, future dreamings and the places in between are the broth of life from which these pieces are poured.

Disc 4: Piece of Infinity … It’s always there, this piece of infinity. A single longform space.
