Originally released in 2016 but out-of-print for years; back in stock at a mid-line price
Evoking the stillpoint of now, this 2016 long-form piece was born in the spirit of Invisible, Bloodmoon Rising and other soul tone zones of pure immersion, deep atmospherics and textural healing. After a long run of concerts and the wide range of dynamic releases over the past few years, the return to home gave birth to this place to be.
Released digital-only on Bandcamp on the day it was completed (May 27 2016), it immediately ranked on the front page best-seller list. The listener feedback and numerous requests for a physical release led to the creation of this 500-copy limited-edition CD. This 74 minute piece was mastered by Howard Givens revealing even more subtlety down inside this place to be.
“An exceptional example of how Steve can create a soundworld that has no recognizable source (meaning you don’t know what is actually creating the sound, what synth/sampler) and you are locked there, not wanting to move, just wanting to be.” – JMV, Bandcamp review
“This long-form piece from a modern master takes us through eternal spaces and moods of light and dark, culminating in a feeling of majesty and awe. The psychological and spiritual depth of Steve’s best work – among which I count this release – occupies a unique place in modern music.” –Adam B, Bandcamp review
Originally released in 2016 but out of print for years, “This Place To Be” has now been reprinted.
