rikm On "Vortex Immersion Zone", Steve Roach takes listeners on a journey through a constantly shifting and expanding soundscape, a monumental creation of sound and tone that pulses and breathes with it's own living energy.

Over the course of seventy three minutes, Roach leads us by the hand through a world of his own making, a fantastic musical environment ripe for discovery and exploration.

Highly recommended...

Shaine The sound wrapped me up in a cocoon and allowed me to travel a safe passage through a frame of this life that was extremely difficult and demanding. It is still on consistent rotation in my living space. Toke this Roach.

Hellmuth Schomberg This is one of the album where Steve excels himself. While I can see the the vortex concerts are a major accomplishment, this one is still more refined, still taking many elements from past releases to another plane. I like this music as much as I like Bach's "Goldberg Variations", though they share no common ground. All in all, an essential album.

The Dome Zone Within…
Created at the Timehouse studio between 2013 and 2015.
This ultra deep zone was first inspired by plans to perform at the Los Angeles Center Studios’ Vortex Dome in 2013. Entering this space created an immediate immersive experience, even with no music or visual stimulation. Vortex Immersion Zone was born from this geodesic, womb-like space in the same way a natural environment or magnificent cathedral inspires an artist to explore new places within. Over the course of time, portions of this immersion atmosphere appeared in concerts which in turn would help to magnify how the piece would evolve in the studio. Additional live performances
and studio experiments continued to add to the the potency and allure of this sonic space, shape shifting the experience into a new depth as it was completed in late 2015.

Created by Steve Roach at the Timeroom - Baja Arizona - primarily on a Eurorack analog modular system
Mastered by Steve Roach and Howard Givens at Spotted Peccary Studios NW, Portland, OR
