|Space and Time|
An Introduction to the Soundworlds of Steve Roach
2003 Projekt PRO151 (CD)
Reviewed by John Shanahan, Bert Strolenberg, Sonic Curiosity
SPACE AND TIME offers a unique overview of the nearly 20 years of groundbreaking recordings from noted ambient pioneer Steve Roach. Excerpting tracks from his 13 Projekt CD's, Roach hand-selected and mixed these pieces into a perfect flow which serves as an ideal insight into his vast recorded history. "Space" and "time" are two themes that run constant in all Roach's music. Rich with emotion and nuance, his sound creations evoke a strong sense of space and atmosphere while simultaneously altering the perception of time within that space. From the expansive, time-suspending landscapes reflected in releases such as 1984's STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE and 2003's MYSTIC CHORDS & SACRED SPACES to the fire breathing, rhythmic-shamanic expressions woven from all things electric and organic on 1989's DREAMTIME RETURN and 2000's THE SERPENT'S LAIR, Roach has earned his position in the international pantheon of major ambient-atmospheric-electronic artists. Fueled by his prolific nature and uncompromising approach, SPACE AND TIME invites the listener on a 74-minute journey into the extraordinary soundworlds of Steve Roach.

While the term "classic" is used freely these days, since its release in 1984 STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE has earned its "classic" status. The breathing suspended embrace of rhythmless, cloud-like atmospheres and serene melodies introduced a new sound for its time. Generating an abundance of listener feedback via cards and letters long before the dawn of e-mail, STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE is a breakthrough release that serves as a living example of the true healing quality that music can hold. Now for 2001, this new edition provides the chance to rediscover this timeless music as well as introduce the music to a new audience. The CD was recently listed in Yoga Journal as one of the all-time top 10 CD's for the Movement and Meditation process.
