Peter Quirarte I saw Steve in Pasadena in 2019 and it was such a profound and beautiful experience. I spent the next day in euphoria. Unfortunately, I wasn’t doing well during his 2023 concert so I’m very glad I can listen to his set with this release! Structures from Silence will forever soothe my mind and soul. Thank you, Steve, from the bottom of my heart. Favorite track: Structures From Silence (Alive in L.A. 2023).

Jason Newton This is such a powerful and stunning version of the 80s original. I hope maybe one day, Steve might revisit this classic album but with a modern rendition like the excerpt he played live for this set. Favorite track: Structures From Silence (Alive in L.A. 2023).

SRL I bought this while at a listen party earlier today (July 2, 2023), and I'm glad I did!
I'm kind of a newcomer to the Steve Roach community, and I look forward to becoming more familiar with his work.
Excellent listening, massive talent on the loose! Favorite track: Spirals & Molecules (Alive in L.A. 2023).

Live In the City of Angels 2023 Steve Roach - 2 hour digital only release - Timeroom Editions

Steve Roach's magnificent cathedral concerts inspire fans to travel across the U.S. to experience sonic moments only attainable within these reverent and inspiring environments. On June 3, 2023, Steve brought his essential instruments and soul to the historic First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. With an intention to honor and merge into the sacred space of the cathedral — and merge with the audience — months of preparations blossomed to life in this beautiful performance. Usually months or years separate the show from the recorded release, today — for the first time in Steve's long history of performances — the recording is available for all just a month after it transpired.

Within the grand cathedral of stone, glass and marble, during the concert's first hour Steve premiered three new pieces created for this event. The second hour features evolving interpretations of tracks from his 40-year career including from classic albums Structures From Silence and Dreamtime Return. While Steve plans more grand-scale concerts in the near future, take the opportunity to experience the energy of this live moment within the sanctuary of your own immersive space.

The evening also featured architecturally-mapped light projections from visual designer Eric Epstein.
