      The duality of Saul Stokes is made clear on the album RADIATE
      (69'51"). This volume presents 50+ minutes of live material from
      2003 plus two bonus studio tracks from around that same time.
      While listening to this material, it becomes apparent that the
      approach Stokes takes to his studio work is vastly different from
      that of his live concerts; with the studio work being concise, brief
      and as tightly arranged as a gear driven machine, and the live
      concerts being more expansive, roaming and spontaneously
      organic. The live concert portion of this disc flows across five
      tracks. Here we find Stokes further exploring texture, timbre and
      his minimalistic sound field through the wavering oscillators,
      flicking filters, grinding crossmodulations and undulating drones
      of "hand forged" synthesizers. The originality of Stokes' tonality is
      unsurpassed, coming from an intimate understanding of the
      technology he's using (as he has designed and built most of his
      live rig) and the resulting immediacy with which his creations are
      brought forth and shaped... ebbing and flowing between
      challenging experimentation and soothing enlightenment. This
      otherworldly musical environment is, for Saul Stokes, an
      expressionistic excursion - the language of his inner life.
