NAME YOUR PRICE SPECIAL - JUNE 2017
From the time of BC, before computers, internet, social media, midi, digital synthesizers and all things tech we take for granted today, The home studio and a few synthesizers were just becoming an affordable option. It was all analog, all the time. Completly hands on and created from the live spirit of drawing from the moment.
NOW (1982) is Roach's first solo release. Self produced and released on cassette though indicative of a marked Germanic influence (though decidedly more Klaus Schulze than Tangerine Dream), revealed the young Steve Roach as a synthesist of limitless imagination and broad compositional depth. The thrust of his synthesized matrices evinces realms of austere beauty, worlds yet to be explored, topographies hosting civilizations caught between the rugged girth of the past and the brilliance of a better future. Ideally, allow this music to simply flow over and through you: "Growth Sequence" hurtles the participant into an Escher maze of reflective sequencer tapestries; "Cloud Motion" is a gorgeous piece of ambient expressionism that hint at the future (STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE, QUIET MUSIC); This is the first document of Roach's qualitative talent blooming outwards to an unsuspecting world – a harbinger of things to come.
