Stefan This album is one of my favorite things to come out of 2020. Probably one of my favorite ambient albums I've listed too in quite a while. truly a masterpiece 👏 Favorite track: mundi tuum est.

Admo A revolutionary work and one that has completely changed my thinking about the pedal steel guitar. Schneider conjures otherworldly soundscapes in service of both narrative force and emotional transcendence. Favorite track: mundi tuum est.

madamadam217 As a guitarist, I truly appreciate the fantastic imagination displayed within this album. I looked Mr. Schneider up and discovered his session work, much to my delight. Only makes sense I love those respective records like I do with this type of craftsmanship. Keep going!

about

This recording, which can justifiably be described as "new age" in the most essential sense, represents a radical new approach to the versatile and cosmic instrument of the steel guitar. This is something new under the sun, a total reinvention of an iconic instrument. Quite literally, there has never been anything else quite like it. All of the sounds heard on this album were made with a 1967 Emmons Push/Pull pedal steel guitar by Luke Schneider, a popular session musician in Nashville, Tennessee. Luke has been an important band member for artists such as William Tyler, Caitlin Rose, Margo Price, and Orville Peck.
