Kelly David + Steve Roach - Broken Voyage

Artist: Kelly David + Steve Roach
P: 2002

Colorado-based electronic artist Kelly David's debut CD sets course on an ambient-electro-tribal adventure. Drawing imagery from uncharted waters and travels between desolate islands in the South Pacific, the CD takes the shape of a soundtrack journey. Kelly's fascination with pure sound design combined with natural sound sources, mid tempo grooves along with deep textures lead straight to the heart of musical darkness... and light in an inviting sort of way. A strong debut by an artist who has been working quietly towards this release for several years. Mixed at the Timeroom by Steve Roach.

Kelly David + Steve Roach - The Long Night

Artist: Kelly David + Steve Roach
P: 2014

THE LONG NIGHT is a deep-breathing sigh of the eternal nocturnal: gossamer atmospheres for the still hours of the night. Focusing on non-rhythmic, textural-harmonic electronic soundscapes, this collaboration unfurls like slow-moving, moonlit clouds. Although THE LONG NIGHT leaves the lighted world behind, its midnight path leads to a state of gleaming serenity and calmness. This music is contemplative, though not brooding: a meditative environment filled with open spaces and tendrils of sound composed of shifting subtle moods and gleaming electronic passages.
The collaboration began during several late night sessions at Kelly David's Denver studio, where the two artists carved-out the basic tracks using only analog modular instruments. The sonic palette expanded when the recording moved to Steve's Arizona Timeroom studio, bringing in a deeper textural quality utilizing processed acoustic sounds and an expanded collection of analog and digital synthesizers, plus subtle outboard processing. The final mix by Steve further uncovers a dimensional depth, delivering on the subtle and intricate tones of David's and Roach's years of journeying the ambient night skies through the long nights.
THE LONG NIGHT is a sixty-one minute mental excursion into unforeseen creative possibilities when the night becomes a special time beyond sleep, a contemplative zen noir of minimal radiant ambience.

Kelly David - Angkor

Artist: Kelly David
P: 200
6

Kelly uses harmonically rich textures and surreal electronic sounds, along with ethnic-inspired rhythmic passages to express a travelogue of mystery, impending danger and the vastnass of a lost kingdom in the jungles of SE Asia. After the strong debut release - Broken Voyage - electronic artist Kelly David presents a big stride forward in his sound design, composition and flow. Going further into the themes of exotic distant places, here he draws on the specter found in the forbidding S.E. Asian jungles and to a distant past when the mighty Khmer civilization ruled from an immense temple city called Angkor.
In a similar way that David Parsons taps into an atmosphere and spiritual dimension of a geographic region, Kelly uses harmonically rich textures and surreal sounds along with ethnic-inspired rhythmic passages to express a travelogue of mystery, impending danger and the vastness of an area that is still being understood and explored on many levels today. Sonically, the CD is created primarily on analog modular instruments which results in a warm and rich sound. Mastered by Steve Roach.
