Three striking new pieces born from the moment. Steve Roach's new 2-CD set seamlessly fuses three long unfolding soundworlds into a vibrant sonic odyssey. The result can only be described as a living, breathing ARC OF PASSION. As one of the pioneers of electronic music, Steve's career has many musical highpoints; ARC OF PASSION proves to be another definitive statement along the path. Advanced response from listeners places this album at the top of the list of must-have releases from Steve's body of work. Steve reaches into his sonic palette to weave elements drawn from his three definitive styles into a continuous, evolving flow. Rich harmonic chords, spiraling sequences and deep sky soundworlds move fluidly within this 2-hour set.

|Fever Dreams III|
2007 Timeroom Editions 18 (CD)

Psychoactive music for the body, mind and soul. This conclusion to the FEVER DREAMS series expresses a craving to dwell within the places in-between, at the borderland of undefined perceptions and amber-colored emotions. Started two years ago, this episode of the Fever evolved simultaneously with the Immersion project, growing into a double CD. The languid, sensual and hypnotic aspects of the first two editions of the FEVER DREAMS series are distilled to a frothy surreal brew. The interplay between a rhythmic Möbius strip-like sensation fused with organic atmospheres and soundworlds offers up a fascinating sense of emotional, psychological, and physical space nearly impossible to define. This conclusion resolves with disc two: "Melted Mantra", a disc-long groove-soundworld mantra that gives full resonation to the words "hypnotic" and "mesmerizing".

2007 Projekt PRO196 (CD) – 3-CD's
Reviewed by Electroambient Space, Musique Machine, Sonic Curiosity, Tokafi
IMMERSION: THREE is the next chapter in an ongoing series of long-form, steady state "zones" created specifically as tone meditations for the living space. Gently immersive and especially effective at low volume, the non-dynamic nature of these spaces support focused day and night activities. Immersion is perfect for creative states, sleeping, reading, long hours at the computer and other functions where traditional music could be considered invasive. Minimal in nature and sonically uninterrupted without beginning or end, this 3-CD set of all-new material (nearly four hours long) brings Steve's years as a sound painter of deep subtle spaces to a place of quiet mastery. This release is especially effective in dissolving the sense of linear time.
Limited edition is presented in a DVD-sized Digipak, regular edition in a CD-sized Digipak. Re-released in 2011 in an Eco-Wallet.
