The Long Night
Atmospheres for the Night Journey

Steve Roach, Kelly David
2014 Projekt PRO297 (CD)
Reviewed by Santa Sangre

THE LONG NIGHT is a deep-breathing sigh of the eternal nocturnal: gossamer atmospheres for the still hours of the night. Focusing on non-rhythmic, textural-harmonic electronic soundscapes, this collaboration unfurls like slow-moving, moonlit clouds. Although THE LONG NIGHT leaves the lighted world behind, its midnight path leads to a state of gleaming serenity and calmness. This music is contemplative, though not brooding: a meditative environment filled with open spaces and tendrils of sound composed of shifting subtle moods and gleaming electronic passages.

2006 Ultima Thule UTAM001 (CD)

Imported from Australia after three years in the making, the inaugural Ultima Thule CD has finally arrived! Ultima Thule is a popular long-running radio program airing Sydney and Adelaide, dedicated to pure ambient and electronic music. This collection is a 78-minute excursion into the realms of atmospheric ambience from the artists who have been consistently broadcast across the Australian city landscape. CHASING THE DAWN: ULTIMA THULE AMBIENT features a selection of previously-unreleased music by thirteen of the world's most acclaimed ambient composers, among them Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Tim Story, Jeff Greinke and Thom Brennan. Steve's piece was created just for this release, titled after the fantastic land and stone formations in the general area of Uluru (Ayers Rock) in central Australia. Steve spent time here during his extended Australia journeys.

Angkor
Kelly David
2006 Rocky Mountain Records RMR 0002 (CD)
Produced by Steve Roach

After his strong debut release BROKEN VOYAGE, electronic artist Kelly David presents a big stride forward in his sound design, composition and flow. Going further into the themes of exotic distant places, here he draws on the specter found in the forbidding Southeast Asian jungles and to a distant past when the mighty Khmer civilization ruled from an immense temple city called Angkor. In a similar way that David Parsons taps into an East Indian atmosphere and spiritual dimension of that region, Kelly uses harmonically rich textures and surreal sounds, along with ethnic-inspired rhythmic passages, to express a risky travelogue of mystery, impending vastness and danger of an area that is still being understood and explored on many levels today. Sonically, the CD was created primarily on analog instruments resulting in a warm and rich sound. Mastered by Steve Roach, and highly recommended.

Broken Voyage
Kelly David (with Steve Roach)
2002 Rocky Mountain Records (CD)
Produced by Steve Roach
Reviewed by Eclectic Earwig Reviews, KLEM, Sonic Curiosity

Colorado-based electronic artist Kelly David's debut CD sets course on an ambient-electro-tribal adventure. Drawing imagery from uncharted waters and travels between desolate islands in the South Pacific, the CD takes the shape of a soundtrack journey. Kelly's fascination with pure sound design combined with natural sound sources, mid tempo grooves along with deep textures lead straight to the heart of musical darkness... and light in an inviting sort of way. A strong debut by an artist who has been working quietly towards this release for several years. Mixed at the Timeroom by Steve Roach.
