A resplendent expression of elegant futurism.

The rich melodic and rhythmic symmetry of this kaleidoscopic bloom of interlocking electronic music features a spiraling analog synth/sequencer-driven sound. It conveys vibrant energy and radiant optimism woven into the core of these living, breathing musical mandalas.

Steve notes, "Bloom Ascension grew from the inspiration to envision an album that's the same musical experience across all formats (LP, CD, download, streaming and cassette.) This set up a time structure that empowered and focused the creative process." Handmade music cultivated on analog tools continues to be a staple of Steve's sound. He reflects, "This 4-part suite engages the listener in the spontaneous process in which the music evolved; it captures the sense of urgency and the direct transmission of pure emotion I felt at that moment in my Timeroom studio. Working this way, the infinite detail and visceral sonic impact of the large format and eurorack analog modular synthesizer systems feeds the mental states this music activates -- hyper-alert, expansive and kinetic, yet suspended and calm at the center."

Steve Roach is a leading American pioneer in the evolution of ambient/electronic music, helping shape it into what it is today. His career stretches across four decades and almost 150 releases. Drawing from a vast, unique and deeply personal authenticity, his albums are fueled by a lifetime dedicated to the soundcurrent. Steve is an artist operating at the pinnacle of his artform, driven by his passion and unbroken focus on creating a personal vision of electronic music steeped in emotion and organic subtlety.

"Music certainly lives beyond any one physical medium, or ultimately no medium at all except for perhaps the atmosphere we inhabit. On reflection, this rotational music feels absolutely at home playing on the spiraling medium of a physical format, as if being generated directly out of the device as it spins.
