The counterpoint between psychoactive electronic metagrooves and diaphanous, immersive textural zones.
Trance Archeologymaps a dynamic topography of eight multidimensional interwoven pieces born from the pulse, breath and heartbeat of sonic archeology, tapping into a uniquely symbiotic relationship between rhythm and atmosphere. The elemental core connects the epochs of trance, ceremonial and sacred music expressed through the tools born of todayâs technology.
âIâm continuously fascinated,â Steve reveals, âby the juxtaposition of rhythm and atmosphere, space and place. Itâs the counterpoint between psychoactive metagrooves with the diaphanous, immersive nourishment of the textural zones.â
Metagrooves aptly describes the rhythms found within. They engage the body and mind in equal proportion. This sonic alchemy drawn from the balance of dualities helps free the mind from a linear timeline. The continuous flow builds and transitions, morphing into the next present moment. This is constant across the 74-minute adventure.
Trance Archeologyexpresses the genre-defying nature of Steveâs dynamic innovations that focus on a full engagement of the senses. Emotionally stirring activation of the body, mind and spirit, the morphing confluence of soundworlds and rhythmic passages combine to open up a hyperreal sense of the moment. In this case the trance experience is about being fully present and alive in a focused state of expanded conscious awareness â discovering what lies just beyond.
