The Passing


1   The Passing

“The thematic essence contained in this 60-minute soundworld has haunted me since the late-90’s, when I created a short piece centered on its main harmonic chord cycle for a compilation. Through the passage of time, the evanescent nature of this atmosphere only grew more poignant and deeper in emotional resonance. As life continues to be fully lived, blooming outwards and simultaneously mirrored with the passing of family, friends and animal companions, these emotions aligned and called on me. In a five-day period leading up to my birthday on February 16 2017, I fully immersed in the feeling this time-echo delivered, realizing this long-form piece in totality.”  – Steve Roach
