biff Johnson The place to be is with this recording playing! Steve is the owner of the era of these soundscapes that send us on a journey that is both personal and very discovery laden. This is a sound event that is slowly revealed as it moves thru a variety of sound currents. Saying these comments does not do justice to the integrity of this creation from deep within Steve's soul. Incredible as always!!!
Neglect thumbnail
Neglect An exceptional example of how Steve can create a sound world that has no recognizable source (meaning you don't know what is actually creating the sound, what synth/sampler) and you are locked there, not wanting to move, just wanting to be.

Holland Steve's eternally exhaling compositions are always phenomenal and transportive. This latest release doesn't at all disappoint.

Greetings Soundcurrent Friends!

(August 2016 update. A LTD 500 CD edition of This Place To Be is now shipping at

This long-form set was born the week of May 16, 2016; in the spirit of Invisible, Bloodmoon Rising and others it is currently offered for only at Bandcamp. Just days after it was created..

After the run of concerts and the wide range of dynamic releases over the past few years, I am feeling deeply drawn towards a return to home and to my soul tone zone of pure immersion, deep atmospherics and textural healing. That is the best way to describe this work and the place I need to be.
