Richard Gürtler ...transmuting through gorgeously heartwarming mirages into blissful all-embracing sonic euphoria. It happens again and again with each spin, I am drifting through the emotionally magnified sonic Eden into the resonant silence with goosebumps on my arms...

Recorded in the remembrance of lost loved ones, "The Passing" dives into the most intense, yet nectarously sumptuous, harmoniously gratifying and luminously eulogistic zones of heart-rending contemplations ever sculpted by Steve Roach!!!

ContrailsOverBoston a quick thank you again for sharing this latest track
(and for the CD too.) It's one of my all time
favorites of your long format releases. Done some
wonderful "inner traveling" already. Keep up the
good work!

THE PASSING
The thematic essence contained in this new 60 min soundworld has haunted me since the late-90s, when I created a short piece for a compilation centered on the main harmonic chord cycle. Through the passage of time, the evanescent nature of this atmosphere only grew more poignant and deeper in emotional resonance. As life continues to be fully lived, blooming outwards and simultaneously mirrored with the passing of family, friends and animal companions, these emotions aligned and called on me. In a five day period leading up to my birthday February 16 2017, I fully immersed in the feeling this time echo delivered, realizing this long-form piece in totality.
