Album Notes
Genesis of a different world is Steve Dyer's first release in 4 years under his own name. Using instrumentation that includes 2 drummers, overlaying piano, bass and keyboard parts, altered piano sounds, african kalimba and storo (jaw's harp), as well as a trumpet, soprano, tenor and baritone saxophone horn section, Steve has created a remarkable and multi-layered soundscape unique in it's sonic sensibilities. It is an artist's window to a different world that draws on the influences that shape him and us.
Genesis of a different world aims to creatively define a new future. We need to devote energy and attention to building progressive alternatives to the existing order. The challenges of the past and present should be seen through the prism of how to overcome them in realising measureable and manageable changes.

Artist comment: As a musician from South Africa there is so much cultural heritage and influence available to draw on here. Yet many persist in unquestioningly chasing shadows from elsewhere, instead of managing those influences positively. I try to reflect everything around me creatively. The people spirit and warmth, the spacious landscape, sometimes fertile, sometimes arid, the artistic talent and innovation, and the humility and the life-philosophy concept of Ubuntu.

There is a battle for the soul of the globe.
Exclusionism and Isolation will not prevail.
Positive collectivism will.
