“"Ambient, Landscape And Space" is an all-inclusive audio/video package, explore it and be transported to many different adventurous places, a must have!!! ” - Richard Gürtler (Apr 10, 2012, Bratislava, Slovakia)
“Speaking of drifts, Roberts is at his best here on the long, quiet washes of “Up Into the Air and Over the Edge (Between the Trees and Clouds Mix),” which starts out with soft rushes of cool wind that nudge along a patient melody. ” - John Shanahan - Hypnagogue - May 1st 2012
Over a period of 4 years Roberts' gathered these visuals for video projections which have been re-edited together with performance footage to form an hour long piece highlighting Roberts' other abilities. The visual pieces were created by Amongst Myselves' principal member, Steve Roberts and visual artist Bernard Haseloff. With his experience in time-lapse cinematography, Steve Roberts has created several of the tracks using his custom made computer controlled hardware and DSLR cameras. Timelapse footage goes hand in hand with his form of ambient music and adds to the serenity when appropriate, while Bernard's use of his unsettling oil paintings brings an added depth to Amongst Myselves' darker moments. Roberts also continues his fascination with polyhedra and rudimentary 3D graphics as seen in the clip "Tales".
Roberts' interest in time-lapse techniques started back in art school where he first realised the hidden world that the normal pace of life doesn't see. This led him to construct a computer controlled motion control camera system which allows him to capture the scenes of the natural world sped up. The music is performed by Steve Roberts with Bernard Haseloff on guitar synth and Garry Roberts on electronic percussion. This release contains remixes of tracks from previous Amongst Myselves releases as well as 3 unreleased tracks showing other sides of Amongst Myselves' music.
The product of all of this is a combination DVD and Audio CD package. The audio on the DVD comes in both stereo and 5.1 surround. An added bonus is a 720P HD version which will be also available for purchasers in a format of their choice.
