Confluence - Steve Dyer recording project - release early 2014
A soundscape of diverse influence to mirror how societies are evolving, and how different cultures, belief systems and peoples have increasingly greater interaction with each other.
At the core is the sound reflection of the journey through my homeland South Africa, and the influences both personal and otherwise that are shaping this journey.
Confluence was launched at the Orbit jazz club in Johannesburg in August 2015. The music is available online through CD baby, iTunes and other formats, and retail outlets throughout South Africa. Distribution through Dyertribe music (DYCD006). Cover design by Lightform.
Confluence, Steve Dyer's 6th album under his own name, is a soundscape of diverse influences to mirror how societies are evolving, and how different cultures, belief systems and peoples have increasingly greater interaction with each other.
At the core is the sonic reflection of Steve's journey through his homeland South Africa, and the influences both personal and otherwise that shape this journey.
Whatever the setting, Steve's intention remains the same: to give a contemporary African voice to improvised and structured music.
