This digital-only bonus, entitled "The Early Years", features two amazing long-form sequencer pieces circa 1982.
"Harmonia Mundi" recorded live by Steve Roach and Swiss-born electronic musician Thomas Ronkin, around 1982-83 in The Timeroom, Culver City, California. Steve Roach: "This is completely analog and pre-midi. All the sequencers were synchronized by a master analog clock. We set up on a Saturday morning and created a variety of sequences and patterns for a few hours. After a triple espresso, our mutual passion for this form of music drove the session towards the heart of the sequencer universe".
"Release" by Steve Roach, 1982, in The Timeroom, Culver City, California. Steve Roach: "This was from the time after my first album, Now, still steeped in the influence of European electronic music and Klaus Schulze. By the time Empetus was released, the longer sequencer forms and qualities of this style would be fading and absorbed into the body of my development towards new places and spaces. Many thanks to Marc Trummel for archiving and providing the original copies for The Early Years. These lost pieces reveal the limitations of the recording technology used at the time".
