Garret Moore I climbed the tallest Death Valley mountain in this cover-shot in 1976, (Telescope Peak 1149ft) and I've adapted this music for the memory of the two week pin-down due to our intercepting Tropical Storm Kathleen on the climb to the top. The reverence we had for the long powerful days on the mountain has been captured in this music. Somehow.
Favorite track: Where I Live.

rikm On "New Life Dreaming" soothing sounds drift by like clouds in the sky, and subtly shifting tones shape a fluid soundworld around the listener.

This album is the essence of calm and tranquility, a breathtakingly beautiful space to escape from the stresses of the physical world.

Absolutely stunning...

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"
