Berkdrums How I love re-issue albums...Like this one from Steve that, to be honest, totally slipped under my radar the first time it was released. So glad I had the chance to grab the hand-made re-release on CDr! And the music?.. It leaves me speechless after every spin really. Its só calming, peaceful, its like a total cleansing of the mind, this is definitely one of my favorite Steve Brand-works, no doubt. The amazing thing to read is how it was created by Steve on a sunny morning and that it is one of his 'most simple' created pieces.. But maybe that's just the secret of this very deep recording, made from the heart and in the moment. Immerse yourself...

Brian Bourassa Such calm, reflective, illuminating soundscapes of things for what else they are, and visible only to those who are still long enough to hear the true voices of those things.

Amidst the grand beauty, there seems, at times, to be a sense of longing, intertwined.

For me, there is something about this release that resonates deeply with me.

about

(8 minute sampler track provided here of the full 70 minute album which will be downloaded after purchase. Download also comes with .pdf of full color booklet and computer wallpapers.)

Originally released 2/1/2013. Exclusively on Bandcamp, “Track Of The Full Moon On Water” was created in 2010 during the sessions for my album, “Catalyst,” as a long form version (70 minutes) of the track, “Track Of The Moon On Water.” TFMW, composed entirely of keyboard, is probably one of the most simple, quiet and most placid long form pieces I've ever made.

The title was inspired by a euphemism for the goddess/ascended master, Quan Yin, whose gentle demeanor and beautiful story (to put off her own ascension until all of humanity is enlightened) always touches me. More than that, I remember that the initial elements for this piece were recorded on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning here at The Treehouse (my name for my studio in my home). For me, this piece is imbued with an abiding sense of piece and serenity that perfectly describes my home and studio.
