Steve writes: “I am deeply excited for you to hear my new album, What Remains which releases this Friday, August 5, on Projekt Records. This beautiful premiere video was realized by computer visual artist Audri Phillips. It was created from AI generated imagery and 3D CG animated particles.” Watch at youTube.
What Remains is a dynamic confluence of four interconnected passages that venture from analog-sequencer driven elegant futurism, to yearning and mysterious tribal ambient, to conclude with the heart-wrenching, pure-atmospherics of “What Remains.” The video’s excerpt from the title track foreshadows Friday’s name-your-price digital release at Steve’s Bandcamp. CD available too.

Debaser in Italy writes: In The chapters of the eclipse, almost as if by magic, we find the ethereal and subliminal atmospheres of the first Vidna Obmana, that of epochal records such as Shadowing In Sorrow and Ending Mirage that join the typical soundscapes of Alio Die… A record that should not be missing in the collection of the followers of ambient music.
