Davide Carrozza Hi! Great album indeed, but track 4 is not "Undershadow", it's "Thunderground", which is already track 10. You can fix it, can you?

Sorry to let you know this way, but I don't know other ways. Plus, I like this album too much to overlook the repetition.

Thank you for your attention. Favorite track: To TheThreshold of Silence.

Mark Kostora This takes me back to the day's in the mid 70's when biking across the Southern California desert I was inspired by the landscape and silence of the experience. I was also just beginning to experience the sounds of electronic music from various artist of the day. This piece is a powerful bridge of consciousness merging soundscape and landscape that has inspired me to create my own soundscapes. Thanks Steve! Favorite track: World's Edge.

The double-CD release WORLD'S EDGE was Steve's first solo project created after his move to Tucson in 1990. At last the inspirations that fueled his music for years were right outside the studio, helping to feed an especially intense creative period. It is one that Steve looks back on as an important period of transition and discovery within the onion-skin-like evolution of his work. The roots of ORIGINS, ARTIFACTS, THE MAGNIFICENT VOID , and ON THIS PLANET are clearly present here, as well as the transition from the

Disc two contains an often-overlooked hour-long piece, "TO THE THRESHOLD OF SILENCE." This long form composition shows significant influences from Tibetan ceremonial music, with a fusion of deep earth-space music, melding perfectly into Steve's landscapes of time-stretching textures. Added to this foundation is harmonic overtone singing, processed gongs, Tibetan bells, and deep earth pulses, all combined to created a kind of ancient-modern sacred space immersion This groundbreaking long-form piece foreshadowed THE DREAM CIRCLE, SLOW HEAT, ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS and PRAYERS TO THE PROTECTOR and the entire IMMERSION SERIES.
