Previously released exclusively on Steve's mail-order only Timeroom label, this soundtrack release is now available for the first time to a bigger audience. Elegantly repackaged for its 10th anniversary, the Deluxe Edition comes including a special value-added DVD:
's film "Time of the Earth" - a desert dream-time journey. For the first time, the film and its CD soundtrack are presented in one cohesive package. As an added bonus, the Dream Circle album is included as an alternate audio track on the DVD.
Sustained and expansive, the atmospheric majesty of this soundtrack represents some of Steve's finest work in the tribal-ambient genre. In the midst of a deeply stratified soundscapes, dynamic earthbound tribal percussion passages rise up from the landscape under the shadows of billowing, glass-bottomed clouds. Part tribal, part haunting drifts, and purely time suspending, the release is essential Steve Roach. Like the stone monuments and forever vistas that inspired the music, this release majestically stands up to the test of time.
It sounds as if it emanates from deep desert canyons in a realm from the near future or ancient past. Never before available in stores, the Day Out of Time audio CD and its companion DVD paints visceral soundworlds from vast desert vistas, jagged peaks, and iconic stone pinnacles carved by wind, sand, and water into fantastic alien sculptures. The music tells the wordless story of the desert dreamtime.
For electronic music aficionados, established as well as new Steve Roach fans, Day Out of Time - with its companion DVD Time of the Earth - is a vital and rewarding listening and viewing experience.
