Steve Roach & Jorge Reyes. The Ancestor Circle. One more tribal-magic ritual. Jorge’s voice is the most prominent element at times, especially on the 24-minute Memories Unsuspended.

I saw your name in passing when I was cruising through the site just now, and I laughed at myself a bit, as when I came to this site I didn`t know anything about ambient and I didn`t realize that eyes cast down was a play on the shoegaze genre...gosh, I was such a newbie! LOL I Hope you are well
