Duff Egan Definitely one of my favorites of 2014, which has been an incredible year for ambient. I can echo Brain B's comment about how the full listen is a needed sonic expansion of the 10 minute sample. I really enjoy the organic and seamless transitions between the different emotions and flavors of this project.

Best wishes from us to you during this difficult time, Steve. Looking forward to the next record!

Brian Bourassa Having just had the pleasure to hear this recording live on SomaFM, and to be able to chat with Steve and other from relaxedMachinery, I can say with confidence that it was love at first note!

From beginning to end, this release is a personal journey for Steve during trying times. He has been so generous to share with us, by means of his craft, this wonderful journey.

The "album sampler," unfortunately, does not do it justice...a full listen is recommended.

The initial tracks for “The Space Between” were begun in early 2011 and work continued on the four tracks until early in 2013. I usually work on several works simultaneously, each one informing and propelling the others along. As “Spaces” began to develop, I felt that I wanted to include the assistance of another artist for this release, and “A Thousand Little Wounds,” seemed just right for the richly textured bass work of Peter James. Peter very kindly agreed to help and supplied me with a lovely addition to that track which deepens the feeling greatly. Instruments used in these songs include: keyboards, voice, gongs, bells, bass, field recordings and flutes.

I experienced many losses and many life changes during the making of this album. In a way, creating this music, helped me make it through an extremely difficult time and enabled me to process some very challenging emotions. The title was inspired by a spark of intuition that I recieved: although loved ones, situations and events seem to pass into history and other kinds of existence, the apparent space between us, between us and our lost loved ones, between us and those events, does not actually exist. Past events, loved ones, even the resources we need from all our pasts and futures are there waiting for us...in still, quiet moments. - Steve Brand
