Steve’s pinnacle performance from 2010’s SoundQuest Fest proved to be a real moment in time, and fortunately it was documented with a high resolution recording that places the listener front and center. Presented as a chronicle of the first 74 minutes of the concert as it unfolded, three distinct realms are seamlessly mapped out on this CD. The opening starts with a 25-minute all electronic piece of perpetual forward motion. From here we experience an amazing interplay between didgeridoo players Dashmesh Khalsa, Brian Parnham, percussionist Byron Metcalf and Steve performing real-time looping, processing and mixing along with soundworlds, ocarina and voice. This passage is an all-out expression of shamanic ecstasy that boils over into an engulfing tribal trance state. The last portion of the set settles into an ultra drifting electro-organic zone that encapsulates many of Steve’s recent innovations and presents them in the dynamic light of the live setting.
