Biff Johnson and Shelley Andrews If this is the future, I am ready for it. There is a lot to really like in this, a release which opens up a 4th decade of creating amazing art for the soul.As usual the sonics are incredible. Favorite track: Inside The Inside.

Mark Kostora Greetings to you and your family Steve! And I share my appreciation for you tying the laces that link the past and the future. You and the faithful instruments in the Timeroom always bring out of the "void" a positive sense of life brought to our senses thru the art of electrical waves and meaningful soundscape.

Nostalgia For the Future

A deep ambient flow of six interconnected soundworld immersions evoking an echo in time, emanating in all directions. The presence of life’s nostalgic imprints casts this sense forward into a future state of longing and etheric reveries just out of reach but coming into form.

The mysterious - visceral power of sound works on many levels as a sensory activating experience. This is one of the many components that makes the music Steve Roach creates so nourishing, and alive. Through a deeper listening into the interweaves of emotion, place and time we can find solace, and an expanded sense of being. This is the realm where Nostalgia for the Future strives to dwell.

Created between January and July 2017 this project was born from the solitude and focus from within The Timeroom studio in Baja Arizona. The result is this alluring time echo, a Nostalgia for the Future fully realized for the here and now.

Nostalgic reference points : Mystic Chords and Sacred Spaces, The Magnificent Void, Dynamic Stillness
