Wordless Echoes: The Tao of Steve

A five hour soundscape exploring musical "Steve-ness."

In the indie movie from 2000, The Tao of Steve, the character Dex suggests that “Steve” represents the archetypal cool guy, and develops a philosophy of “being Steve.”  Over the course of the movie, we learn that this might not be a reliable credo, but the idea caused us to notice that there’s a whole lot of Echoes music made by Steves: Steve Roach, Steve Tibbetts, Steve Hillage, and Steve Stevens just scratch the surface.  Here’s a five-hour uninterrupted instrumental soundscape exploring the music of Steves.  To be fair, we included Stevens, Stephens, Stephans, Stephanies, even a Stevin, and we’re starting to think that maybe we all should be trying to attain Steve-ness….
