Originally released on relaxedMACHINERY in 2015, 'worlds apart' brought together the only four tracks I was able to salvage from a complete studio refit while recording what would have been my 3rd full-length release. The instrumentation I was using overextended the RAM available to my 32-bit ACID platform in my 64-bit Windows environment. I had to ditch; throw out ACID, welcome in Ableton and pretty much start over.
And this took a long time. .
I was very happy with these tracks, and direction the album was going but in the end decided to simply release these four as an EP. This re-release of the album marks the end of this musical era for me and the beginning of something new.
Time to move on.

...transmuting through gorgeously heartwarming mirages into blissful all-embracing sonic euphoria. It happens again and again with each spin, I am drifting through the emotionally magnified sonic Eden into the resonant silence with goosebumps on my arms...
Recorded in the remembrance of lost loved ones, "The Passing" dives into the most intense, yet nectarously sumptuous, harmoniously gratifying and luminously eulogistic zones of heart-rending contemplations ever sculpted by Steve Roach!!! Richard Gürtler
