Chris Collins What a unique collaboration! So many nuanced layers of subtle sounds weaving in and around each other. You can really get lost in this. I especially love the gentle groove of "The Deep Hours."

Lush, gorgeous sounds to be savored again and again.

Adam B One of my favourite ambient albums! These pieces really capture the feeling of the night and the way those quiet times lend themselves to creative endeavours. Listening deeply and attentively to this music produces an altered relaxed state of consciousness. I'm looking forward to Steve's next collaboration with Kelly David.

Duff Egan This is the record of the year for me so far. The more I listen to it, the more I discover and enjoy. Few records can transform a space and an evening like this and the finale is some of my favorite sonics ever.

Please make another one.

After enjoying this, be sure to check out the Kelly David Angkor record. Favorite track: The Long Night.

The Long Night is a deep-breathing sigh of the eternal nocturnal: gossamer atmospheres for the still hours of the night. Focusing on non-rhythmic, textural-harmonic electronic soundscapes, this collaboration unfurls like slow-moving, moonlit clouds. Although The Long Night leaves the lighted world behind, its midnight path leads to a state of gleaming serenity and calmness. This music is contemplative, though not brooding: a meditative environment filled with open spaces and tendrils of sound composed of shifting subtle moods and gleaming electronic passages.

The collaboration began during several late night sessions at Kelly David’s Denver studio, where the two artists carved-out the basic tracks using only analog modular instruments. The sonic palette expanded when the recording moved to Steve’s Arizona Timeroom studio, bringing in a deeper textural quality utilizing processed acoustic sounds and an expanded collection of analog and digital synthesizers, plus subtle outboard processing. The final mix by Steve further uncovers a dimensional depth, delivering on the subtle and intricate tones of David’s and Roach’s years of journeying the ambient night skies through the long nights.

The Long Night is a sixty-one minute mental excursion into unforeseen creative possibilities when the night becomes a special time beyond sleep, a contemplative zen noir of minimal radiant ambience.
