Steve Roach biography
Leader and pioneering figure of the L.A Sacred space music movement. Steve Roach made a name in the 1980 with the release of outstanding lysergic-binaural musical experiences dominated by synth analog chords, sustained by magnificent spiritual-epiphanic cosmic grooves. His music sometimes reveals an ethno-ritual and acoustic instrumentation and tranced-out rhythms. Structures from Silence (Fortuna, 1984), Dreamtime Return (Fortuna, 1988) are considered to be his finest. He released a handful of collaborative works with many notorious artists such as Michael Stearns, Robert Rich, Vidna Obmana...). Steve Roach's music is a strong inspiration on a new generation of musicians and bands such as Oophoi, Matthias Grassow, Alio Die, Jeff Pearce (...)

Structures From Silence
Steve Roach Progressive Electronic

Review by siLLy puPPy

3 stars It's ok. I'm not thrilled by this but it's a pleasant enough listen. I've just heard much better progressive electronic that really gets me into it. This is a little tame and repetitive like yoga or massage music or something. If that's what you're looking for then you will like this a lot. For me, I prefer just a little more oompf even in my ambient music. Some of my favorite ambient music exists in not only artists like Tangerine Dream but also on the 5 disc series "From Here To Tranquility." There is more going on than just repetitive ambient structures. I don't remember which, but I have heard better even from Steve Roach himself.

FUTURE FLOWS
Steve Roach Progressive Electronic

Review by admireArt

— First review of this album —
4 stars Steve Roach, as I have mentioned somewhere in PA, came to a level of development, in his self-constructed language, that makes it almost impossible to rate him beyond his own discography. Maybe his very early works still had this "characteristic". "FUTURE FLOWS" a 2013 release, makes it easier (or friendlier if you wish) for "newcomers", at least as to the timing of the songs go, which are short, in comparisson to his hour+ long efforts. Additionally, the songs are rich in character, and independent of each other. Dynamic SLOW paced music, which now I know, is not for every Prog audiophile, less those who crave for espectacular pirouettes and tons of spotlights.

It will be hard to focus otherwise, but to the Progressive/Electronic crowd, that understands the wide spectrum this sub-genre offers and has gone through since its inclusion in PA. Roach's music has always had the focus on the "aural" experience, humans go through when music as a whole becomes an integral part of their daily human "environments". Opposed to creating something that you will treasure and "experience" 5 times in your whole life. He has worked on this "ambiental" expressions, as far as I remember.

A self impossed quest, far beyond the "mainstream" markets and audiences, that has brought its best after years of work and experience. This instrumental "Future Flows" does not hide any of his findings, in fact it could turn out to be one of his most "universal" works even beyond the "realms" of Prog".

So...if you follow this sub-genre, or even better, if you listen to music in general just for "knowledge", this work is a ****4.5 PA stars kind of project.

A Deeper Silence
Steve Roach Progressive Electronic

Review by admireArt

— First review of this album —
5 stars At somepoint, in his extensive music road of composition and performance, Steve Roach, arriveth to his own musical perfection. At somepoint, because he has recorded a quiet vast discography (most of them are still missing in his page), but there are a lot. Anyway, after this point, everything he composes, records and produces, has very high, "self-imposed" standards of quality and diversity (in his own spectrum, of course!). At some point in his personal quest, Steve Roach found his own musical language. In this "A Deeper Silence" project, he goes even further, as the title suggests and as he "delivers"... As a listening experience, I, who rarely talk about the "Art-presentation" or cover, could really compare this music to its image. A deep "environmental", un-commonly rich and perfect composition, that emerges, in a "drone-like" procession of invisible, yet perceptible myriad of "silences" and "dark colors". Really, you have to be there to understand!.......... 5***** Masterful ,"SLOW MUSIC" project., with its own identity, both in concept and musical achievement........ Deep very Deep!!

Trance Spirits
Steve Roach Progressive Electronic

Review by admireArt

5 stars Being that there is no Progressive/Ambient category,Steve Roach co-exists obscurely in the Electronic tagging. Some others are also in this "limbo", not exactly being "electronic" or a bit worse, when they as Steve Roach (or Alio Die, by the way), aim for the electronics serving the acoustics, blend of music expression. Of course there are electronics here & there, but which music nowadays is not electronically recorded or engineered? Anyway, the attractive part of this work, is precisely the clash of both worlds. What needs to be electrified goes, as what not. This trance-like battle is subdued brilliantly, by the great balance, musically speaking, of the musicians involved in this "Projekt ", and by the astounding drumming performances of both Jeffrey Fayman and Momodou Kah, both playing on real african drums, not electronically processed, alongside both Steve Roach (Guitar & Synth Soundworlds) and Robert Fripp's (Soundscapes on 3 tracks) providing the atmospheres as backgrounds and fronts of the whole experience. So, to make it clear, this is closer to trance-like african music than electronic -prog, as such. What makes it a 5 star effort, for me, is the way they manage to escape all the cliches usually involved in this kind of works, to make the whole experience, be something different in taste and intention, to pure african drumming (which of course is great itself). Of course, Steve Roach has been thriving all through his career, to blend both primitive and modern music worlds, to survive, in one or as one. So he, by the time this record appeared (2002), had already walked through this kind of road, he knows perfectly this field of action. Jeffrey Faymans, biggest contribution resides (apart of his great performance of course), in the never ceasing intensity felt through the whole record. Mr. Fripp brings along some dark and mysterious "Soundcapes" that act as the night does for the day. So, for those familiar with the very, very vast, Steve Roach discography, this effort is one of his best (with other musicians) efforts. For those who are not familiar with thismusician, consider this to be one of his most accomplished, "opposites worlds" work. When there is balance and sweat, you will PROBABLY achieve what you aim for. This record does. One of a kind, 5 ***** PA Stars!

Dreamtime Return
Steve Roach Progressive Electronic

Review by Dobermensch

3 stars Just pretend you didn't see that awful front sleeve and believe me when I say that this is actually a good album, There's so much space involved in 'Dreamtime Return' that you could drive a double decker bus through each chord. Steve Roach does waves... waves of chords played very slowly. Imagine Harold Budd playing slowed down electronics on massive delay and you'll get the idea.

Criticisms of 'New Age' have been flung left right and centre at poor old Steve, but he just bounces back time and time again, sometimes three times a year. His beatless albums are superb, some of which are the darkest ambiance you'll hear. 'Dreamtime Return' is a pretty much deep ambiance with a few rainsticks thrown in during the first 20 mins. Thereafter it's mainly soft but engagingly drawn out keyboard chords for the duration. Forget about your regular western 'chorus verse structure' and you'll start to get it.

If you're looking for comparisons then 'Stars of the Lid', 'Robert Rich' and 'Brian Eno' spring to mind. Beatless, with no guitar, bass or drums - this makes for a very laid back experience,

All of Steve Roach's albums are very consistent, without a duffer in sight. Unlike any other artist I've reviewed, every album in his gargantuan discography gets a solid three stars - never above, never below... You can't go wrong with any of them, particularly the deep black hole in space drones from the mid '90's.
