Album Notes
These are not pieces to be enjoyed while getting a massage or contemplating your oneness with the universe. They are anxious, restless and evoke a sense of uneasiness that has no resolution.

Even the most accessible pieces such as kathedra or anemoi have underlying tension that suggests a discomfort with itself as if any tonality, however minimal, is out of place.

Mutase abandons all pretense of civility with its mash up of lo-fi, through the glass darkly drones, clicks and electronic rumbles. Strophic floats in mid-air like a muggy fog that envelops the listener.

This album is worth a late night listen.

sAs (aka Stephen Sciallo) composes music that has a sonic quality quite unlike other ambient or "background music". sAs’ imaginative approach to song structure and musical interpretation - with mostly beatless soundscapes and shimmering textures - can be listened to over and over.

Stephen has called Southern California home for over 30 years and holds a B.A. in Music Composition from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
