This is Part Two, containing Disc 3 + Disc 4
Also available: The Complete Edition | The full four disc set. Part 1 and Part 2 (in the same double digipaks as below) at a special combination price.
Released in 2003 as a limited edition available only from Steve Roach & Projekt’s website, Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces – part 2 serves as a continuation of the highly successful Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces – part 1. Part 2 features two discs of all new material; it is not a remix. Now – for the first time – retail customers can continue their exploration into the majestic realm of pure, non-rhythmic electro-acoustic soundworlds.
“…the high frontier between deep listening music and the spirituality of pure sound.” – Stephen Hill, Hearts of Space radio
A cinematic epic for the ears, part 2 of Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces builds upon the swirling currents and massive harmonic landscapes established on part 1. On the first disc of part 2 (titled “Recent Future”), Roach creates a state of constant becoming: soundscapes shift and morph in perpetual motion as one space dissolves away only to reveal the next compelling place. This realm of unresolved, suspended beauty reaches a high plateau setting the stage for the final disc’s departure into a single long form track, perfectly titled “Piece of Infinity. ” The serene, mysterious atmosphere of the 74-minute space completes the tour de force Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces.
“Abandoning all conventional notions of music as melody, harmony and rhythm, Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces allows the listener blissful hours on the high frontier between deep listening music and the spirituality of pure sound.” – Stephen Hill, Hearts of Space Radio
Moving into the majestic realm of pure, non-rhythmic electro-acoustic soundworlds, Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces is a stunning 2-CD release marking a new milestone in Roach’s history as a true artist of sound. His landmark statements – including Dreamtime Return, Magnificent Void and Structures from Silence – are all parts of the uninterrupted flow building to this release. After a recent run of rhythmically fused CDs, Roach moves into awe-inspiring sonic immersion, delving into a spiritual dimension of sound. Nearly 5 years in the making, this release offers a listening experience beyond entertainment and pop culture appeals, creating a new sense of ‘ambient orchestration’ through a constantly shifting flow of sounds and textures that enters a sacred realm of music.
|Disc 1: Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces||… The sacred and divine aspects of sound are the heart and soul of these five innerconnected pieces.|
|Disc 2: Labyrinth||… The path through the labyrinth is one of choices and consequences. These nine soundworlds were drawn from the metaphor of the labyrinth and the passing from one ring to the next, reaching the center.
|Disc 3: Recent Future||… Time, memory, reflection, future dreamings and the places in between are the broth of life from which these pieces are poured.|
|Disc 4: Piece of Infinity||… It’s always there, this piece of infinity. A single longform space.
