Scott The record arrived yesterday and it was the most carefully wrapped package I will surely ever receive; thanks to the care taken with the shipping, I got a truly mint condition item. I have spent several hours with it overnight, and it sounds great--warm and cool tones, minimal surface noise...looking forward to relaxing with the extra tracks on the download in the coming days! Favorite track: Quiet Friend.

Berkdrums I think this might sound strange in some ears but Steve’s album I treasure, love and moves me most is Quiet Music (3CD).. Structures... however, of course one of the MASTER’S timeless masterpieces, is close behind for me.. I think Steve as no other ambient-maestro, album after album, shows us how music makes talking unnecessary.. the way Steve creates his music from the heart, from within, with such a feeling for detail, harmonics, flow and emotions is always inspiring and makes me a huge admirer. Already owning the original CD ànd the Deluxe CD-package, I just had to have the digital version as well for 24/7 access on my BC-app! Thanks so much Steve.. such a generous guy as well... And those extra tracks are so incredible !

“Structures From Silence remains one of the most important ambient albums ever crafted…. its enduring influence has been unmistakably visible in the three decades since its release. It has never been more relevant.” – FACTmag

Released in 1984, Structures From Silence remains an iconic American release in the ambient and electronic genres. It’s a well-respected soundtrack for contemplation, relaxation, meditation, and focused creativity. The album continues to appear at the top of charts and is mentioned as one of the best releases in the genre; even more importantly, it is a meaningful touchstone for thousands upon thousands of listeners who have lived many years within its nurturing embrace. The album has endured, growing more potent over time, especially in the accelerated pace of today’s life. Emotional, powerful, and enriching, it is a living example of the true healing quality that music can hold.

For Structures’ 30th anniversary, Steve went back to the original analog mixes for a 24/96k remaster that reveals luscious quality and subtle tonal detail not heard since the 1984 master. “With today’s evolution of audiophile analog mastering tools,” Steve says, “we were able to reveal the original beauty, detail and essence-of-tone captured on the 30 ips analog master which has not been heard like this until now.”

30 Years of Silence
The 3-CD deluxe edition includes two bonus discs of pieces created in the recent past - 2013-14. Steve says, “Over the years since the creation of Structures From Silence, certain pieces would emerge in the studio that instantly had the resonance of a direct relationship to the place that birthed this work back in 1984. As this anniversary approached – like the light slowing emerging in an early morning sunrise returning from a thirty year orbit – the desire to draw from this place of stillness, and deep inner quiet became the soul tone for these new pieces. Like the three original tracks, these were created in moments spent simply being present in the studio, tapping the flow state and guiding this sense into these recorded moments.”
