All is Now
Steve Roach
2002 Timeroom Editions 8 (CD)
Reviewed by Jim Brenholts, Hannah M.G. Shapero, CD Services (UK), Electroambient Space, e|i magazine, Progression Magazine, Sonic Curiosity, Wind and Wire

Fresh from concerts in 2002, this purely live double-CD release presents the current evolution of Steve's iconoclastic live experience captured at select U.S. dates earlier this year. For the duration of the first half of this year, Steve was on a constant program of performing on the road, then returning home for a few weeks at a time, setting up the live system in The Timeroom to create new sounds and reflect on previous concerts. This proved to be a refreshing alternative to the tour-'til-you-drop approach as the evolution of the music and soundworlds were greatly enhanced by this process.

Darkest Before Dawn
Steve Roach
2002 Timeroom Editions 10 (CD)
Reviewed by Jim Brenholts, Hannah M.G. Shapero, David Rush, Electroambient Space, e|i magazine, Morpheus Music, Progression Magazine, Sonic Curiosity

A deep zoneworld of glacial movement and magma-like flow, no beginning, no end... you have just been dropped off in a far corner of space, and what's that I hear? Imagine STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE emanating from a point far beyond. If a Mark Rothko painting could make sound, this might be it... 74 minutes x repeat mode = a severe change in atmospheric conditions... and possible hypnogogic states. Created September, 2002. This minimal, immersive sound environment can be considered a prelude to MYSTIC CHORDS & SACRED SPACES.

Day Out of Time
Steve Roach
2002 Timeroom Editions 9 (CD)
Reviewed by Jim Brenholts, Hannah M.G. Shapero, Electroambient Space, e|i magazine, Progression Magazine

This soundtrack contains classic tracks along with out-of-print and hard-to-find pieces woven together to tell the wordless story originally released on the recent desert dreamtime DVD on Projekt, TIME OF THE EARTH. As such, it provides a comprehensive view of Steve's influential tribal-ambient and desert-ambient soundworlds. Like last year's PURE FLOW collection, the sequence of the tracks melding into one continuous flow reflects a new perspective on the different eras of Steve's work.

Step into the INNERZONE with surrealist soundsculptors Steve Roach and vidnaObmana on their first new collaborative work since 1999's quickly sold-out limited-edition box set ASCENSION OF SHADOWS. Venturing off safe and well travelled roads, the duo head into a chilling and beautifully haunting realm of shape-shifting soundscapes mixed with fascinating rhythmic forms. An unusual combination of instruments both acoustic and electronic can be heard on this compelling release. Central is the fujara, an Eastern European overtone flute, and the electric guitar — both creatively altered with a multitude of audio processing equipment to create a hybrid elecro-acoustic mix. The final merging of surreal acoustic, electronic elements and deep "inner" rhythms creates a bold new atmospheric music experience.
