A dark ambient magma flow of ultra deep harmonic immersion. This is the next chapter in the evolution of Steve's rapturous long-form zone-worlds. Moving beyond the drone form, Fade To Gray is a consciousness-activating 74 minute space of slowly churning, shifting harmonic alchemy. Subterranean sonics emerge rich with visual correlations; this could be occurring deep below the earth’s surface, monitored and amplified into a listening space above ground. Steve approached Fade To Gray as if working on a large scale canvas or as a sculptor, shaping an etheric material into a sonic form through the tactile process offered by his analog-hardware based studio. Beyond the immersive environment experience it also functions on several levels: At low volume and infinite playback, Fade To Gray is highly effective for hypnogogic travel and sleep. At a higher volume, on a sound system that supports the emotional impact of full resolution playback, the sensation of a surreal, symphonic movement magnified and expressing texture, mood, and emotion at a cellular level.
