A dark-ambient magma flow of ultra deep harmonic immersion. This is the next chapter in the evolution of Steve's rapturous long-form zone-worlds. Moving beyond the drone form, FADE TO GRAY is a consciousness-activating, 74-minute space of slowly churning, shifting harmonic alchemy. Subterranean sonics emerge rich with visual correlations, deep below the Earth's surface, monitored and amplified into an above-ground listening space. Steve approached FADE TO GRAY as if working on a large scale canvas or as a sculptor, shaping etheric material into sonic form through the tactile process offered by his analog hardware-based studio. Beyond the immersive environment experience, the music also functions on several levels. At low volume and infinite playback, FADE TO GRAY is highly effective for hypnogogic travel and sleep. At a higher volume, on a sound system that supports the emotional impact of full resolution playback, the sensation of a surreal, symphonic movement is magnified, expressing texture, mood, and emotion at a cellular level.

Painting in the Dark
Steve Roach
2016 Timeroom Editions 40 (CD) – now shipping

In this new atmospheric opus, pioneering composer and artist of the transcendent Steve Roach explores the confluence of texture, tonality, sonic abstraction, continuity and space with a set of six interconnected paintings in motion. The spirituality of sound is central within these emotional landscapes with infinite horizons. In the way a visual artist mixes their colors and utilizes the natural light-infused ambience of the studio to support the piece as it evolves, Roach initiated these mystical sonic states under the influence of the late hours at night. Within the shroud of natural darkness and a few low level lights in the studio supporting the creative flow, these paintings in the dark were born. Steve often finds parallels in his creative process to that of a painter or sculptor, and aspired in this direction before discovering electronic music as his main form of artist expression. PAINTING IN THE DARK presents an aesthetic that is unique to Roach's work, embracing the mystery and wonder of sound as a constant evolving companion to the ongoing bloom of consciousness.

Shadow of Time
Steve Roach
2016 Projekt PRO334 (CD)
Reviewed by Richard Gürtler, Darkroom Magazine, Exposé Online, Musique Machine

Within the 35-year orbit of Roach's relentless dedication to sonic-art as a way of life, SHADOW OF TIME marks a reconnection to the touchstone of Roach's signature sound: deep breathing atmospherics, textural healings and zen-like immersion spaces. The inner stillness and sumptuous shimmering of warm analog synthesizers slow down time and enhance the moment in ways unique to Roach's work.

This Place To Be
Steve Roach
2016 Timeroom Editions TM38 (CD)

Evoking the stillpoint of now, this 2016 long-form piece was born in the spirit of INVISIBLE, BLOODMOON RISING and other soul tone zones of pure immersion, deep atmospherics and textural healing. After a long run of concerts and the wide range of dynamic releases over the past few years, the return to home gave birth to this place to be.

BIOSONIC's labyrinth of bio-electrical rhythmic pieces mixes with passages of deep drifting textural magnetism. Nine tracks possessed with intense fire and driving dynamism push down to the molecular level, while entrancing groovescapes inhabit new textural worlds of mind-expanding power. The music's intention is ecstasy and intensity -- like the frenzied rush of red blood cells, nerve impulses or the firing of pistons -- such tendencies are balanced by an undercurrent of tranquility and yearning.

Impressionistic, romantic minimalism. A shadowplay of nuanced, sparse, ambient-atmospherics and processed-piano tone paintings, truly one for infinite playback mode.
