Shadow of Time
Shadow of Time
Steve Roach
2016 Projekt PRO334 – now shipping

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
This Place To Be
Steve Roach
2016 Timeroom Editions TM38 – now shipping

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.

Steve Roach, Robert Logan
2016 Projekt PRO326

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.

Erik Wøllo
2016 Projekt PRO335

This electronic/ambient release is Erik Wøllo's 2015 live performance at the late-night Star's End radio show on WXPN in Philadelphia. This is a long-form, introspective 60-minute piece with thirteen sections of enigmatic textural components organically flowing into each other. Eschewing the melody and harmony found in Wøllo's studio work, STAR'S END 2015 is an intricate expression of ambience and this artist's potent skills at creating space and ever-expanding sound-universes.

May 19, 2013:  Circles & Artifacts at Bandcamp!

After the release of their monumental Ascension of Shadows 3-CD set, in 1999/2000 Steve Roach & Vidna Obmana collaborated by mail on the soundtrack for a limited-edition interactive CD-ROM of photography by Martina Verhoeven. The hour of all-new material never appeared on a standalone CD, but here it is, for the first time, as a digital release. A floating long-from meditative piece, it's a unique ambient environment, immersing the listener in a carefully designed soundworld; rewarding whether just below the threshold of perception, or through active listening. The gradual shifting and drifting is music to get lost in. Though the changes over time are subtle — almost imperceptible — there is growth and change.

April 14, 2013:  MP3 clips for Steve's new album FUTURE FLOWS have been posted, and the album is available now at Bandcamp.
