The second of two collaborations with Kevin Braheny inspired by the desert, this album pays homage to the Edward Abbey book of the same title. It inadvertently became a memorial to that Southwestern nature writer when Abbey died shortly after the music was recorded. Featuring some powerful work by Michael Stearns, this album taps into the psychological depths of stark Southwestern landscapes through a subtle set of soundscapes depicting the hidden dangers, unseen gifts, and intoxication that the desert promises.

Originally titled "Perelandra," after the C.S. Lewis science fiction novel of the same name, The Way Home melds sonic sophistication, emotional refinement and spirituality. Braheny's work on the EWI gives the album's two pieces, "The Way Home" and "Perelandra," a shimmering, weightless feel, which the subtle flute accompaniment emphasizes. An expressive and forward-looking album, "The Way Home" set the tone for not only Braheny's career but for much of the new age/electronic music to come.

The vistas of outer space, sonically evoked and evocative - vast, majestic, at once awesome and beckoning, otherworldly yet strangely familiar. Travel through musical starfields. Experience the Milky Way rising over the horizon of an alien world. Look back in time brought present by the ancient light of the eldest stars, eternal witnesses to all the happenings of time and space. And experience the emotions of the traveller. Exhilaration. Awe. Poignant nostalgia, both for home and for unimaginable vistas never to be seen again save in imagination. And a jazzy, joyful return at journey's end.

Western Spaces is a collaborative album by the American ambient musicians Steve Roach, Kevin Braheny and Richard Burmer. This album is the first of Steve Roach’s many musical tributes to the Southwestern Desert. This recording conjures up the desert vistas and the vast stark beauty of the American southwest through a collection of pieces that play like a soundtrack to a road trip through the Mojave Desert, Death Valley and Joshua Tree, California. All of these locales were the inspiration for the musicians during the creation of the music.

The Immersion series takes a compelling turn, moving towards a new perspective on Steve's Immersion experience. Disc one, "Circadian Rhythms" explores a sensual flow of harmonic suspension and sparse melodic mantra-like patterns hovering over rhythmic spaces and mercurial zones. Opening up within an organic analog modular garden of sound, a pulsing undulating groove spiral emerges, creating a suspended sensation of constant flow while hovering in the now. "Circadian Rhythms" moves through a continuous 73-minute flow in three phases…

Steve Roach's artistic medium is sound. Every true artist finds their original voice in their tone. Through Steve's innate sense of rich tonal color and complex harmonic creation comes his unique signature voice. From the inside-outwards, this quality is his inherent soul tone. Over the span of several decades the tone has evolved and yet feels connected to a constant source. This sonic genesis is one of the original promises of electronic music in Steve's hands. It is fully alive and present on all of his releases…

A delayed transmission from the early 80s. Discovered serendipitously in 2015, these lost tracks created just prior to the Structures from Silence era represent two then-emerging sides of Steve’s artistic muse. "Emotion Revealed" is a mesmerizing, yearning sequencer exploration connected to the German school of electronic music. Track one - "Emotion Revealed" - was recorded live in 1983 at the Timeroom, Culver City, California, soon after Steve’s premiere solo cassette "Now" (1982) was released. This piece presents a classic recording of the sound that defined the early years of Steve’s work showing the influence of the European Electronic Music of that era. The approach of capturing the emotions of the moment in the studio live is a through-line that continues into his work today…
