ANOTHER LIVE MASTERWORK FROM A MASTER

Steve Roach has recorded live albums before (World's Edge; Stormwarning), but this album is clearly the best of them. Roach describes the title thusly: "All is now ... and now is all there is..."; "this is what I feel before I push off the shore, moving out into the soundcurrents with a group of passengers on board for the journey."

This 2-CD set contains 141 minutes of musical "soundworlds"; disc 1 contains shorter pieces from various locations, including excerpts from his 5-hour performance at Yoko Ono's June 2002 retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; it makes a suitable "highlights" compilation. Disc 2 is from his second set of a live performance at Seven Centers Yoga Arts in Sedona, Arizona. It is completely "live," and was only edited to make it fit on the CD.

This is a "must" for fans of Steve Roach or other Ambient music.
