2CD in 6-panel Digipak.
Masterfully joining the two worlds that define Steve Roach’s signature styles, the 140-minute
2CD Sanctuary of Desire combines deep ambience and mesmerizing, spiral-like forms in a
majestic flow of stately elegance and breathtaking aural drift.
Disc one explores a realm of suspended tranquility, sustained reflection and emotional resonance.
Disc two soars upon a morphing journey into the mythic imagination by way of multi-dimensional
Mandala-like tapestries woven from Steve’s mastery of analog-based synths and sequencers
and hovering atmospherics. A timeless ephemeral and empowered space that soothes, inspires
“The album,” Roach muses, “is a cathedral of the future built to hold and nourish the deep spirit
of the creative life. It has transcendent yearning, aspiration and integration at its foundation.”
