Product Notes

Twenty-six years after their noted collaboration Kiva (1995), American electronic music originators Steve Roach and Michael Stearns' orbits return to a point on the horizon between and beyond worlds. Their mastery of tactile sonic environments meld into boundary-defying music creating a language of transcending and transformative experiences. These seven captivating tracks are born from a devotion to the power of sound. Within realms of elemental, primordial, celestial and deep emotion, the enveloping influence found within the natural world of forests, deserts, canyons, mountains and the beyond.

Meeting in Los Angeles in the late 70s, Steve and Michael lived a few blocks from each other in neighborhoods separated by Venice Blvd. They collaborated in those early days - ripe formative years of the developing American electronic music scene. As their individual lives and careers unfolded, Michael became a successful film composer, known for passionate soundtrack work on director Ron Fricke's Chronos, Baraka and Samsara, while Steve went on to create many pioneering electronic/ambient classics including Structures from Silence, Quiet Music and Dreamtime Return and now has a discography of well over 150 albums.

"Checking in deeply after decades apart," Steve reflects, "Michael and I found we both chose to live in places away from cities, close to the natural world. Out my window, I look seventy-five miles to the horizon, horizon is home. We're both at home in our element, present in one's self while focused on something far in the distance, moving towards it, pulling us out there."

From the moment we enter into the realm of Earth & Sky to the moment we depart it, the space beyond calls to us, guiding the unfolding of our lives. Through music we hear that call, transcending the day to day and ordinary states of awareness, Beyond Earth and Sky.
