'A thousand breathing forms' is a selection of unreleased or hard to locate works from 2003 to 2008, a very prolific and creative period for Steve Roden.
The boxset is centered on his hard-to-describe loop based sound works that are uniquely his own (such as Stars of ice, A Christmas play) but also includes the conceptual 'One hour as the bumps of surfaces' and more 'musical' works on cd4.
Mastering by Giuseppe Ielasi.

"as i listen to the tracks that are compiled here, i realize that for so many times my works have been inspired by the works of others, and other objects. ‘stars of ice’ was inspired by a chinese 7” record salvaged from a thrift store. ‘stills for guru dutt’ came out of my love of discovering my favorite bollywood director, and the en/of record used the sound of the great indian playback singer mohammed rafi. ‘22 letters and the resonance of a three pointed star’ was inspired by an early 1960’s building for the olivetti design firm in ivrea italy, where the original installation was placed within the lobby where it was “modulated” by the space. ‘a christmas play for joseph cornell’ was of course, inspired by the work of joseph cornell, but also george brecht’s water yam scores. the banjo used in banjoharmonium was found at the flea market (my home from home), and the harmonium was a gift from my friend damon. yes, maurice blanchot!, herd and heard - wordplay always. ‘these 4 horizons’ was, again with collaborating with architecture, making recordings in the rain on the site of le corbusier’s roncham after getting lost for hours while trying to find our way through torrential rains (that you can hear on one of these tracks). ‘sleep walk drive’ was a collaboration, also something important to keep one honest. the last track, so tiny, was a cover version of the oldest recorded sound we know, and the story of that not only generated this track, but a sound and video installation… and so i have been collaborating not only with people but with objects, ideas, and forms."
