CIRCADIA (2018) Bacchus' Most Recent Studio Album
Exploring the Circadian Rhythms and Harmonies of Nature
The new studio album by Stephen Bacchus has just been completed! This exciting, new album was released on October 30, 2018.
Infused with "enhanced" nature sounds, ambient atmospheres, and surprising musical manifestations, this album features eight new tracks, with the title track, “Circadia” clocking in at just over twelve minutes in length! Here Bacchus has created an otherworldly, natural world by using the sounds, harmonies, and rhythms of nature as a starting point for musical explorations.
The musical meter was stretched and made fluid in the creation of these soundworlds. Listeners will find themselves drifting away, effortlessly, deep into the Circadian environments created by this sound visonary.
"CIRCADIA" is a limited-edition factory-pressed and packaged Digipack CDr (100 copies only!), Don't miss out on this rare collectible!
