MOLECULES OF MOTION is a sonic marvel: shimmering, pulsing, moving, emotional and engaging. A tapestry of sequencer-spun patterns floats upon an atmosphere of lush emotive textures alive with a vibrant, life-affirming glow. These four pieces can best be described as meditations upon elegant motion and electro-sensual space.

On his first studio album since his recent Grammy nomination, Roach calls upon an expansive 35-year legacy at the forefront of electronic music creation. MOLECULES OF MOTION is a masterful album with roots in the Berlin School and a foot in the transcendent unknown of the future flowing into now. Roach's sonic universe merges into a realm that induces a weightless, three-dimensional sensation: a feeling of floating while simultaneously energized and informed from a serene calm center.

His music itself has long transcended the tools with which it is made, while his choice of hardware-only, and mostly analog, instruments is fundamental to the signature sound of MOLECULES OF MOTION. It is proof positive of the artist bringing the high and deep together in this touchstone release.

As his creative approach evolves, the categories of classification dissolve. The rich palette of synth textures and intricate layers of lattice-work embraces the senses activating a heightened awareness while evoking an emotional resonance and reverie, a quality unique within all of Roach's soundworlds.

NOW was the first full album release from Steve Roach. Originally self-produced and released on cassette in 1982, the music shows Steve's early inspiration from the Berlin School of Synthesizer Music; Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze in particular. While these roots are heard here, his personal voice and imagination is on full display. Reviews at the time called NOW an "auspicious debut" and later appraisals consider it well ahead of its time. Recorded almost entirely in real-time, there is an urgent and vital current running inside all these pieces. If you ask Steve about this music and the time it was created, it's direct and telling to the music: "Nothing else mattered".

The prestigious Austrian Label VOD has released NOW as part of its American Cassette Culture Box set of over 13 LP'S. We have only 50 of these LP's, available while supply lasts.

Also included on this LP is a recently-discovered beautiful mid-tempo sequencer piece "Emotion Revealed", clocking in at 22 minutes. This LP is nearly 28 minutes per side, just like the days of full 30-minute sides from Klaus Schulze and others! "Emotion Revealed" will also be released on CD in January on Projekt, along with another recently found long-form piece from 1983, Steve's first long-form deep ambient track.

Steve's first two releases on one CD. European influenced sequencer music (i.e. Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze) is balanced with early tribal-atmospheric pieces that suggested what was to come.
