Structures From Silence
by Johnny Black, Q Magazine
February 1998


Roach, like Giles Reaves, is part of a new generation of young composers who have grown up in a world where making music through computers has been the norm, rather than the bewildering new development it seemed to many older musicians. With this, his third release, Roach has taken pains to create three lengthy pieces which unfold so slowly that a casual listener might think nothing much is going on. Paying closer attention reveals the subtlest of interwoven rhythms and melodic fragments mingling with gradually evolving sweeps of orchestral colour which become surprisingly powerful and evocative before the music resolves back to the simple structures from which it started. A box of continuous delights.
