CORE is dynamic convergence of Steve's most essential organic, electronic, rhythmic and atmospheric elements, making this a stand-out solo release. The Summer of 2001 was a time of renewal as Roach turned away from all concerts, collaborations and other offers, directing his focus deep into the heart of this powerful journey, back to the core. 100% pure Steve Roach music. Created at the crossroads blending his various genre-bending phases of elegant futurism, tribal-ambient, classic sequencer trance and modern electronica. A literal cross-pollination of many aspects from the core of Steve's dynamic, emotion-filled soundworlds. CORE is a release that easily could have been created two weeks into the future.
This is the 2017 reissue, limited edition of 500, in a Digipak instead of the jewel case, but otherwise identical to the 2001 release. CD's ordered from steveroach.com ship with a Bandcamp download code, and for a limited time you can name your price for the Bandcamp version!

The sound of life, interconnected and unfurling... The spiral, a visual symbol of eternity, is a reoccurring metaphoric theme in Steve Roach's pioneering electronic work. Interpreted into musical form, these six spiraling sonic experiences offer a living activation that connects with a sense of the infinite. Roach's long history and love of analog sequencer-based styles reveal a continuing, evolving awakening within SPIRAL REVELATION's 63 minutes. Using only analog and hardware instruments to focus the mind's ear upon a filigree of intricate patterns woven with a direct hands-on approach, the artist sculpts and caresses sound into being in real time. An emotional through-line brings life to these pieces as the unfurling of time's windings connects to the vivid present and illuminates with anticipation a life-affirming future. A masterful expression of an artist who has infused his soul into the art form of electronic music.
