Michael Stearns biography
Electronic wizard, sound designer and master of analog synth space music. To a certain extent, Michael Stearns can be considered as the founding father of the Californian sacred space music scene next to Steve Roach and Robert Rich. His typical musical signature reveals sustained floating sound waves in a pure classy electronic vein, turned to absolute harmonies and mantric-like drones, punctuated by found micro-sounds and nature sounds (Morning Jewel, 1979) Substantial musical catharsis which later goes into the subterranean dark ambient genre, in a,. closed Lustmord genre. Michael Stearns is also know to have composed a handful of brilliant soundtracks for cinema (Chronos, 1984; Baraka, 1993...). Ancient Leaves (1978) and Planetary Unfolding (1981) represent the quintessential of his discography.

Michael Stearns Progressive Electronic

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
3 stars Michael Stearns' Planetary Unfolding consists of spacey, ambient electronic meanderings. In its slow pace and gradual buildups, I am reminded of a smoother, more purely electronic, substantially more ambient and somewhat more new age-leaning take on the sort of musical territory visited in Zeit by Tangerine Dream. Taken in the balance, though, I think Zeit is able to command a broader emotional range and suggests far more turmoil than these peaceful, tranquil compositions. Fans of progressive electronic music may find this one overly simplistic, but if you're really into ambient or need something to relax to it certainly does the job more than adequately.
