      The circle is a most mysterious object. Often representing infinity,
      the line of a circle does not begin nor does it ever end - a
      seemingly endless sequence of events. It is this perplexing concept
      that Steve Roach + Vidna Obmana are consumed with in their musical
      collaborations. The dark soundscapes that are brought forth on the
      album INNERZONE are the result of loops; cycles of sound layered in
      and out of phase, which mature into spheres of pensive ambience.
      Throughout the album, the duo brings forth drifting soundworlds that
      absorb the listener into the flow. But the cyclical nature of this
      album is most easily noticed when the musical current picks up and
      the beats emerge. The ring of rhythms repeat their rapid journeys,
      circuiting up and out of the aural fog, breathing, then back down
      below. Along with the prevailing synthesized sounds, INNERZONE
      features an array of unconventional acoustic sources; distorted,
      shifted, delayed and otherwise processed - almost beyond recognition.
      These accents add an exotic flair to the album's uniform sonic
      circulations. As in other forms of minimalism, this realization
      offers little in the way of melody to focus on. Instead, it asks the
      listener to go beyond this convention, into the pulse, timbre and
      spirit of the music - and to find their own INNERZONE experience.
