Meltstream really began in 2007 when Steve and Roy first met at Steve Roach's Soundcurrent Masters Workshop in Sonoita, Arizona. During the week long workshop, the group would improvise over the music of one of the artists present with Roach doing the live mixing. Steve says, "Some of the most personally satisfying and compelling moments for me, were when Roy and I would combine sensibilities. There was a richness and depth there that I wanted to re-create, hear and experience over and over.” In 2013, Roy sent Steve a handful of sounds (guitar and keyboard loops and sketches) that Steve then wove together with his own keyboard textures, field recordings, shakers, sandstone, whistles, voice, etc. Finely crafted environ-ambience to lose one’s self in. A beautiful work!
