Roach, Steve & Mark Seelig, Nightbloom
"Prolific ambient innovator Steve Roach teams with Ph.D. shamanic practitioner / musician Mark Seelig for their 5th collaboration. It’s a long-form piece of space-opening sound magic. Like the many fragrant and beautiful night-blooming plants which are host to mind-altering qualities, this 70-minute experience slowly blooms outwards with Mark’s vocal harmonic and Tuva-style overtone singing intertwining within Steve’s zones and “terra” grooves. HYPNAGOGUE: “A dark meditation in five seamless parts, Nightbloom is perhaps as ritualistic a disc as Roach and spirit-singer Seelig have ever collaborated on, a hypnotic, symbiotic prayer of equal parts organic and electronic. Seelig's beautifully eerie overtone signing, the blend of rich low notes and a flute-like whistle produced in the singer's throat at the same time, become indistinguishable from Roach's ever-changing soundpools and ""terra grooves"" in moments of perfect interplay.” "
