A video preview of Steve Roach’s new album at youTube.

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.

Alio Die/Dirk Serries: The chapters of the eclipse CD at Projekt

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.

Two Steve Roach titles back in print, and preOrder the new Ian Boddy disc.

Steve Roach’s This Place To Be and Invisible are back-in-print at mid-line price. Deleted for a few years, these titles are shipping today from the Projekt webstore.

 

Steve Roach: This Place To Be (2019 Reissue CD) $12.00 (Now Shipping!) 

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.

Originally released in 2016 but out-of-print for years.

Steve Roach: Invisible (2019 Reissue CD) $12.00 (Now Shipping!)

“Invisible is a long-form zone world Steve created while hunkering down in the Timeroom during the last few cold and rain-filled days of 2014. Invisible is an ultra deep primordial dreamscape of shifting mercurial zones. Mist-shrouded amorphous phantasms appear and recede as distant substrata murmurs are felt as much as heard. Just a few days after its creation, it was offered as a gift on New Year’s Eve and many were able to travel deeply into the new year in a collective global soundcurrent experience.” – original description

Originally released in 2015 but out-of-print for years.

Ian Boddy: Altair (Live At The Gatherings/Star’s End 2CD)

(Pre-Order, Expected Early July)    $17.00

DiN label boss Ian Boddy has been performing his own brand of ambient electronica since 1979. Over those 40 years he has built up a wealth of experience of what works in a live environment as well as being able to tailor his shows to the particular setting he finds himself in. As well as playing all over the UK and in Germany & The Netherlands he has also crossed the Atlantic several times to play shows in Philadelphia. The main reason for the latter destination is the wonderful community of listeners built up by Chuck van Zyl at The Gatherings series of concerts which provides a dedicated fan base for Boddy’s style of electronic music. Chuck is also the host of the excellent Star’s End Radio show on WXPN in Philadelphia and Boddy has often combined these concert trips with live radio shows for both Star’s End as well as Echoes Radio hosted by John Diliberto.

Thus 2018 ushered in a fresh adventure for Boddy with a new invitation to play at The Gatherings. His past performances have found their way on to releases such as Shrouded (his 2000 show) and React (DiN29) with Robert Rich. Several of his Star’s End live sets have also been released on DiNDDL as download only albums. However the trip in 2018 produced what is in Boddy’s opinion, his best pair of performances to date and so he has decided to release a double live album to showcase this trip.

The first disc documents his Gatherings show on the evening of 20th October in the beautiful St. Mary’s Church in Philadelphia whereas the second disc is his live radio show on Star’s End performed at 2am on the Sunday morning immediately after his Gatherings show.
