4 stars Dynamic stillness.

I will be the first one to distrust serial simultaneous releases, by any musician, even more, when they sum up to 3 or 4 or 5...but Steve Roach, for starters, is quiet a surprising musician/magician.

"The Passing", 2017, a one track, a bit short of an hour long composition, is simply enticing, hypnotic and extremely well crafted.

The permanent flow of its ethereal, but solid, minimalistic elements depicts a dynamic stillness which is not necessarily placid, as one may assume, when the word dream appears in a sentence.

No pulse driven sections nor deeply disturbing nightmarish symphonic like passages, the long melodic structures are linear and expansive the same as vaporous and delineated and they subtly emanate a detached nostagia which permeates the gliding atmospheres, adding up for a very personal human touch which connects anyone with its passing.

**** 4.5 PA stars.
