A resplendent expression of elegant futurism.

Steve notes, âBloom Ascensiongrew from the inspiration to envision an album thatâs the same musical experience across all formats (LP, CD, download, streaming and cassette.) This set up a time structure that empowered and focused the creative process.â Handmade music cultivated on analog tools continues to be a staple of Steveâs sound. He reflects, âThis 4-part suite engages the listener in the spontaneous process in which the music evolved; it captures the sense of urgency and the direct transmission of pure emotion I felt at that moment in my Timeroom studio. Working this way, the infinite detail and visceral sonic impact of the large format and eurorack analog modular synthesizer systems feeds the mental states this music activates â hyper-alert, expansive and kinetic, yet suspended and calm at the center.â

âMusic certainly lives beyond any one physical medium, or ultimately no medium at all except for perhaps the atmosphere we inhabit. On reflection, this rotational music feels absolutely at home playing on the spiraling medium of a physical format, as if being generated directly out of the device as it spins.
