Scott Vincent Molecules of Motion starting with an upbeat arpeggiated sequence lays the groundwork for the album. The main sequence engages the listener until 15 minutes in when the sequence pacing mellows out while the motif stays the same. Two more upbeat pieces round out the album - each in a similar tonal world. The Grammy nominated MoM is upbeat in emotion and more of a beginner's introduction to Roach's sequenced worlds.

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 second Grammy-nominated album, 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.
