Theory of Communion……………………….
‘The day after Peripheral Vision’
‘Theory of Communion’ is another electronic music offering from Steve Orchard that follows nicely in the same theme as his last album ‘Peripheral Vision’. But on ‘Theory of Communion’, Steve has taken a huge step forward in terms of musical composition and production. Indeed, it may be considered his best album to date!
As well as some excellent synth and vocal/choir textures, Steve adds dense rhythm and bass layers to some very complex arrangements that occasionally hint at Yes, Vangelis and Mike Oldfield while retaining Steve’s inimitable, melodic style. He has also seamlessly integrated his acoustic instruments into the music and the result is a superb and captivating blend of electronic and instrumental prog rock.
‘Theory of Communion’ is a hugely satisfying listen. From gentle drifting tracks like ‘Blended’ and ‘Communion’ to the catchy (reach for the replay button!) ‘Blind Panic’ and the excellent musicianship featured on ‘Exchanges’, Steve has created a superb opus here, deserving of wider attention.

When Steve let me know that his next album coming out was a follow up from Peripheral Vision I was .. SO EXCITED ! and then he sent me some teaser samples of the tracks, and wow.. blown away. As Steve knows, the UFO and Alien subject is one I am very interested in, as I host a podcast called The Z Files where I talk about these subjects in length. Theory of Communion is just an amazing album! I love it, and can’t wait to give it plenty of air time on my show. Steve’s music is always first class, no matter what the subject matter of the album is. Excellent album Steve! I look forward to many more!
