"The Sun is Rising" was the very first Steve Combs album. This was my first foray into electronic music, and I think that shows in some of the more simplistic arrangements that are present on this record. My personal favorite song on here is "Hold Music", which is actually the only song that I sat down and wrote before recording. All of the other songs are mostly improvised. This re-release includes the original 9 tracks, 8 remixes, and one non-album track.
Over the coming months, I'll be re-releasing every one of my albums to celebrate one year of making music. I'll put up these new versions on the Free Music Archive every Monday afternoon through March and April, and they will appear in other places later in the week.
The re-releases contain the original tracks, their remixes, and various non-album tracks that I've accumulated over the past year. This project is meant to streamline my discography and create a complete, definitive body of work.
I hope you enjoy!
