Slowly…quietly…dawn overtakes the darkness of the southwestern desert. For those who inhabit its rugged expanses, it's the beginning of a new day and a new cycle of sun, heat, wind and dust — the daily challenges of existence in one of earth's most extreme environments.
No one has written more eloquently about the desert than naturalist EDWARD ABBEY. In his classic book Desert Solitaire, he describes the desert as both a physical environment and a state of mind nurtured by isolation. For Arizona musician STEVE ROACH, the desert is a place of "beauty, stark vastness, magnificent vistas and silence" — a space that "provides a more direct path to the deeper self and the source of one's artistic impulses."
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we explore that isolation and introspection, on a journey called DESERT SOLITAIRE. Music is by STEVE ROACH & BRIAN PARNHAM, A PRODUCE & LOREN NERELL, KLAUSE WIESE, STEVE BRAND, and RESONANT DRIFT.
