Notes

Liner notes:

Empetus:
Empetus emerged from the dynamic times of my early years in Los Angeles, circa the beginning of the 80's. This was an exciting time and place with the confluence of electronic artists, concert events, and instrument builders (like Oberheim). We were all in full stride and dreaming big. This created a sense of an emerging electronic sound and culture growing from the collective of these creative energies in motion. Empetus - a word I modified from the original impetus - is about infusing high emotion into the pieces, which were moving from longer forms into concise, interconnected meditations on energy, movement and dynamic flow.

Produced, performed and recorded by Steve Roach at The Timeroom, Culver City, California. Digitally mixed at M'Ocean Studio, Santa Monica, California. Special thanks to Georgianne Cowan, Thom Brennan, Ethan Edgecombe, Loren Nerell, and Colonel and Sue Roach.

The Early Years:
"Harmonia Mundi": 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": 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. Mastered by Steve Roach in The Timeroom, Sonoita, Arizona.
