(Second Edition Mix : 73:59)
This is serenity at a cellular level, the essence of hearing beyond and into forever.
The special limited-edition release of The Delicate Beyond, included free with initial hardcopy purchases of The Delicate Forever, sold through in no time. After many requests, Steve created a second edition with a subtle remix of the 74-minute piece, an extension of the opening track from The Delicate Forever. Howard Givens at Spotted Peccary added an audiophile mastering job.
In response to some questions about this release, Steve adds: “A note on THE DELICATE BEYOND second edition: Since quite of few of my core listeners missed out on the first run, I wanted to make sure they had a chance to obtain a CD copy. On this second edition, I took the opportunity to make a different mix, not ‘better’ just ‘different ‘at a very subtle level. Something I wanted to do for my own desire. If you have the current version of the THE DELICATE BEYOND, the delicate elecro-organic sounds that tickle your eardrum are mixed up a bit and the mastering treatment — especially for the 24-96 download file –opens it up in a different way. If you have the first edition on CD you will not be missing out on anything. I just wanted to share this since some questions were coming in on the difference between the versions.”
