roro38 Un ensemble à l'atmosphère tour à tour méditative, contemplative ou simplement aérienne. Bel album. Favorite track: Heaven and Earth.

pileated31 A truly peaceful flow that honors Steve's ongoing commitment to the genre. The inclusion of Serena's contribution on the track "Stillwind Ways" has unexpectedly and wonderfully resulted in a unique but fond throwback to Brian Eno's "Music for Airports." Thanks as always. Favorite track: Stillwind Ways.

PhilPDX50 Like all good collaborations, the whole is greater than the sum of the two talented musicians on this ethereal recording. Essential listening for any ambient enthusiast.

MarkoV One of Steve's (and Serena's) best albums. It reminds me of primordial, shamanic masterpieces such as Origins and Artifacts, yet somewhat more magical and supportive for deep inner travels. Must have!

about

This third collaboration from Steve and Serena was drawn from the desire to create sound and music for a contemplative experience.

In the process of creating Temple of the Melting Dawn, an opening was created, stepping out of everyday time and into the realm of sacred space and self reflection. Through this experience, this enchanting set of seven sonic offerings manifested.

Musical instruments of ancient and modern origin were utilized, seamlessly blended to invite the listener into a time suspended place where connection to a deep sense of one’s inner wisdom is enhanced. The sound of the lyre, flute, kalimba, harmonium and stone metate magically merge with a gathering of synthesizers and inventive recording techniques. The result of this sonic alchemy reveals an ever changing unfoldment of perception upon each listen.
