Back to Life
Steve Roach
2012 Projekt PRO267 (CD)
Reviewed by High Level Performance, Relaxed Machinery

BACK TO LIFE is a masterful expression drawing from the deep end of Steve Roach's mythic imagination; an enveloping experience of vast beauty and mystery.

Described by Steve as a new phase of his long-form symphonic ambient works, this direction has been evolving over the course of the benchmark releases THE MAGNIFICENT VOID, MYSTIC CHORDS & SACRED SPACES, DYNAMIC STILLNESS and SIGH OF AGES. The symphonic comparison comes from the presence of movements and passages along with reoccurring themes created from sounds and textures. These harmonically rich, multi-layered pieces breathe with an elemental ebb and flow, and seem to contain an energy from within that builds with each listening experience.

BACK TO LIFE speaks directly to the the multi-nuanced, non-verbal portion of our perception. The pieces draw nourishment from the essence of nature, the timeless expressions of the human experience in art and music, the sharing of life's beauty in wordless wonder-filled reflections and reveries in the amber light of the waning sunset. Back to the subtle beauty of life, indeed.

In early 2011, Steve returned to the studio to place complete focus on composing, creating new sounds, and "hitting the reset button on the foundation of my life beyond music." Through this personal reset, Roach forged deeper into his devotion to the rarified soundcurrent connection that runs constant through all of his work and that is recognized and appreciated by his audience worldwide.

Groove Immersion
Steve Roach
2012 Timeroom Editions 26 (CD)

This release reveals an entrancing facet within Steve's evolving Immersion series. With the first four Immersion releases focusing on harmonic meditations and glacial forms, IMMERSION FIVE - CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS began the introduction of movement into the series. GROOVE IMMERSION massages the senses by finding the ultra sweet-spot blending of "infinite" grooves and mercurial soundworlds, holding this space for the course of 70 minutes. A fasinating sense of the present moment constantly updates itself with micro shifts inside mandala-like rhythms. At times, an almost weightless sense of being becomes another part of this of mind-altering GROOVE IMMERSION experience.
