Steve has done a huge range of music over the years and I find that I tend to listen to the variety in cycles or batches, the drifting soundscapes, tribal, collaberations with Vidna, fractal grooves.....No set listening order. It's a bit like being at a banquet.
Steve was the first 'new' electronic musician I listened to after many years of not listening to any music, so for me he also has that 'oh my god' effect when i discovered people were still making the music of my youth....a whole horizon opened up for me.
The Magnificent Void and On This Planet were my first introduction to his music and are still in my favourites - others are the Ascension of Shadows box set, Possible Planet, the Serpent's Lair, Light Fantastic and Early Man.
Problem is that once I start making a list it just gets longer and longer as other discs jump into my memory
I've not really got into Fever Dreams or the more 'straight' forward sequencer fests, never been that keen on sequencer based music and the fever dream disc i have just never comes out unless prompted by a thought or a discussion like this.
I did try to describe what aspects of his music I tend to go for, but every line I wrote didn't cover it, a lot depends on my mood, what I am doing etc.
