A Desert Dreamtime Journey
— soundtrack by Steve Roach a film by Steve Lazur
Previously released exclusively on Steve’s mail-order only Timeroom label, this soundtrack release is now available to retail on Projekt. Elegantly repackaged for its 10th anniversary, the Day Out of Time is available as a digi-pak edition.
The power of the desert has been a core inspiration of Roach’s work and this release presents a compendium of tracks recorded at the zenith of that period. As a comprehensive overview of Steve’s influential tribal-ambient and desert-ambient soundworlds, Day Out of Time weaves together classic tracks along with out-of-print and hard-to-find pieces. Sustained and expansive, the atmospheric majesty of this soundtrack represents some of Steve’s finest work in the tribal-ambient genre. In the midst of deeply stratified soundscapes, dynamic earthbound tribal percussion passages rise up from the landscape under the shadows of billowing, glass-bottomed clouds. Part tribal, part haunting drifts, and purely time suspending, the release is essential Steve Roach. Like the stone monuments and forever vistas that inspired the music, this release majestically stands up to the test of time. It sounds as if it emanates from deep desert canyons in a realm from the near future or ancient past. Never before available in stores, the Day Out of Time audio CD paints visceral soundworlds from vast desert vistas, jagged peaks, and iconic stone pinnacles carved by wind, sand, and water into fantastic alien sculptures. The music tells the wordless story of the desert dreamtime.
For electronic music aficionados, established as well as new Steve Roach fans, Day Out of Time – is a vital and rewarding listening experience.
