Steve Roach

Real Name:
Steve Roach
Profile:
A longstanding leader in contemporary electronic music, composer and multi-instrumentalist Steve Roach (born 1955 in La Mesa, California) drew on the beauty and power of the earth's landscapes to create lush, meditative soundscapes influential on the emergence of ambient and trance.

A onetime professional motorbike racer, Roach -- inspired by the music of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, and Vangelis -- taught himself to play synthesizer at the age of 20; debuting in 1982 with the album Now, his early work was quite reminiscent of his inspirations, but with 1984's Structures From Silence his music began taking enormous strides, the album's expansive and mysterious atmosphere inspired directly by the natural beauty of the southwestern U.S. Subsequent works including 1986's three-volume Quiet Music series honed Roach's approach, his dense, swirling textures and hypnotic rhythms akin to environmental sound sculptures. In 1988, inspired by the Peter Weir film The Last Wave, Roach journeyed to the Australian outback, with field recordings of aboriginal life inspiring his acknowledged masterpiece, the double-album Dreamtime Return. A year later, he teamed with percussionist Michael Shrieve and guitarist David Torn for The Leaving Time, an experiment in ambient jazz.

After relocating to the desert outskirts of Tucson, Arizona, Roach established his own recording studio, Timeroom, and in the years to follow grew increasingly prolific, creating both as a solo artist and in tandem with artists including Robert Rich, Michael Stearns, Jorge Reyes and Kevin Braheny -- in all, close to two dozen major works in the 1990s alone, all of them located at different points on the space-time continuum separating modern technology and primitive music. His album roster from that decade includes: Strata (1990), Artifacts (1994), Well Of Souls (1995), Amplexus (Collected Works From The 1995 Ltd Series) (1997), and Dust To Dust (1998). Early Man was released on Projekt in early 2001, followed by one of his many collaborations with Vidna Obmana.

He received his second Grammy nomination with 2018’s Molecules Of Motion album. Chosen in the Best New Age Album category, it follows 2017's nominated Spiral Revelation.

I bought Structures from Silence long ago on a used cassette tape because cover art looked cool and song titles were intriguing. OMG, this was a revelation for me. I now own three hardware synths and a bunch of virtual synths on my iPad Air. And what do I create? Ambient music — all because of Steve Roach. In the years past I have had the privilege to promote Steve and other ambient musicians via my many music reviews over the decades. Thanks goes to Steve. He’s kind of a private guy though — as I have emailed him many times thanking and praising him for his superb work. Never heard a word back... If you like Roach’s beatless, evolving soundscapes then find Surrender by James Johnson. Also check out Jim Butler on Bandcamp. He is THE most prolific ambient composer on planet and 90+% of his work is spot on. Lastly, seek out ambient works by Phillip Wilkerson and Andrew Lahiff — both on Bandcamp and both stellar musicians. www.SourceCodeX.com

What are his best albums? I am starting with Structures from Silence. Where should I go after?

First came across Steve Roach via a 12 minute track 'At The Edge Of The In-Between (Anima Revealed)' from 1995 on the really wonderful 'Endless 2' compilation. Everything on that comp. is fantastic (and includes one of Robert Rich's best pieces), but this one really outshines the rest. Steve's track was revelatory for me, early dark ambient soundscape, has different sections, emotions, sensations, constantly morphing, plus an incredible array of background sound effects layered on which are never repeated. Like a long deep twisting underground symphony, unpredictable to the end. And this is a live recording. Been a huge fan ever since, keeps me constantly surprised. Respect is due for an original and exceptionally talented sound and music artist.

Steve is such a prolific artist, and yet the quality of his music never diminishes! Its therapy, its life. He is up there with the greats, such as Klaus Schulze, Pete Namlook, Robert Rich, etc. Check him out, you won't regret it.
