neo-alquimista It makes me remember when I looked at the stars as a kid, hearing the distant sounds of the night dancing around my ears, while the emptiness in me was being filled with another kind of emptiness, a meaningful one. Favorite track: In The Eye Of Noche.

Sun Through Eyelids Steve's music is not just music, it's a whole world of sound.
The prolific nature of him and the ability to create not a single bad album for so many years is quite incredible.
The sound of the soul is the only way I can describe it and this album is no exception.
You feel as though you're floating on a tide made up of dreams,
Stunning delicate soundscapes as always and my dream is to be able to combine my soundworlds with his one day. Favorite track: Where I Live.

patient_ot I guess this is the successor to the classic "Dreamtime Return", but far less beat and percussion-driven than that album. The approach works well and I like this a lot.

Portis A complete journey that creates an environment of wonder and peace. New Life Dreaming flows through it's entirety with wonderful intrigue, mystery, and relaxation. It is of the highest quality from beginning to end. Favorite track: Perfect Dream.

From the first chord of "Perfect Dream" to the final fade of "In the Eye Of Noche", NEW LIFE DREAMING presents an unbroken feeling of connection to essential meditations found on STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE, QUIET MUSIC and DREAMTIME RETURN. All of these pieces were created during late 2004 and 2005. The process of remastering DREAMTIME RETURN helped open the door into that timeless place found in Steve's most appreciated works. NEW LIFE DREAMING represents an essential chapter in the book of quiet, nourishing and graceful sound paintings.

"The desire to tap into the soundcurrent from which the Dreamtime music was drawn just seemed inevitable after the remastering process started in December of last year (2004). It's a living, breathing, space for me which has continued to flow down deep over the years. As I re-opened the door to this dreamtime space, the creative urges and subtle cues to follow the trail deeper was immediately reinforced bythese new pieces which feel directly connected to this indescribable quality"
