?As a sonic continuation and response to last year's optimistic Tomorrow, AS IT IS is a revelatory experience of mystical, captivating electronic music. It travels the soul's pathway of renewal following the dramatic year we've just emerged from. Filled with texture and subtle nuance, this is a spacious album of organic analog electronic music with a breath and heartbeat - a simmering, churning, moving appointment with reality. Within secluded deeply personal spaces, suspended soundworlds place the listener in the center of life's mystery, awe, excitement, pathos, sadness, longing, and power. AS IT IS takes a bold step deeper into the time - and space - altering realms Steve has pioneered over all these many decades.
