Description

Release Date: 11/03/14

A primordial soundworld, where prehistory meets future-tech as an ancient voice chants in serpentine ecstasy.

Conjuring images of a primal futurism, this alchemical blending-of-sound is a ceremonial offering to the forgotten gods.The Ancestor Circle is a new tribal-ambient-electronic collaboration, the first from Roach & Reyes since 2000’s Vine ~ Bark & Spore. This is the lost chapter of a long soulful journey. The music steeped in a frothy mind-altering blend, waiting for years as the potency increased. Roach & Reyes combined their instinctual nature — developed over almost a decade of worldwide live and studio adventures — to the core of what became The Ancestor Circle. It is in this circle that their sound is unearthed from deep within their primordial soundworld, where prehistory meets future-tech creating a sound impossible to carbon date.

Like the audio artifacts of a lost tribe, the studio source recordings that form this album’s foundation were uncovered in 2013 on a cryptically-marked set of tapes. Created the week before Roach & Reyes’ May 2000 Tucson concert, this is their last joint studio project as Reyes passed on to The Ancestor Circle in 2009.

Rising up from a dark shroud of night to embrace life, an ancient voice chants in serpentine ecstasy only to subside and hover next to a slow realm of eternal time drawn from electronics, percussion, prehispanic flutes, ocarinas, other acoustic instruments and silence.  Roach & Reyes are still here bringing us messages from the infinite.

Jorge Reyes took an ethno-musicological approach to music-making on 20 solo albums; released throughout the late 80s, 90s, and 00s, with a special emphasis on indigenous and shamanic traditions from Reyes’ native Mexico.  Reyes passed away on February 7, 2009.

Steve Roach is a pioneering cornerstone of ambient-atmospheric-electronic music. Since the early 80s, Roach has approached music like a medicine man approaching the void: engaging the challenge, uncovering new mysteries, and bringing them back to share with the world.
