Drone/ambient soundscapes abruptly collide with chilly, piercing, and eruptive aggressions. The processed guitars, synths, and subtle vocals blend and blur within the ocean of serene/chaotic moments. This evocative album doesn't play softly. SPACES' eight tracks wind through distinct atmospheres: euphoric, other-worldly, chopped, anesthetized. Noise weaves freely throughout, pushing through the mix and navigating space. With seven years of recordings sampled, resampled, layered, reshaped, and resampled (yet again), Eila created SPACES in France, Canada, Utah, Texas, and Mississippi. Studio recordings, live shows, jam sessions and sentimental instances of sounds that come through everyday life conspire on these nostalgic, personal journeys through heavy emotional and dissociative states.

This album will grow on you. Listen in headphones or earbuds. It will blow your mind. Steve has so many amazing textures and dimensions on this release. It's hard to pick a favorite track. Probably in his top 5, if there is such a thing. 2020Guitarman
This is a very beautiful nature-related and calm piece of ambient music. And the cover: I just had to get this and I did! Amazing piece of art by itself. Similarities: music reminds me Robert Rich's Sleep Concerts / album versions and the art reminds me the abstract art by Mary Clanahan. echoee
