For over 30 years, Steve Roach has been "exploring myriad soundworlds that connect with a timeless source of inspiration." In addition to being a pioneer in ambient music, Steve Roach is constantly one of Drone Zone's most popular artists. We're excited to offer this CD to our supporters.

Created in a single two-hour session broadcast on SomaFM, LIVE TRANSMISSION is Steve Roach doing what he does best: creating transcendent electronic music emerging from an elemental, instinctual mode. With months of preparation absorbed into his system, Steve's slow-flow moods and evocative soundscapes blend with ecstatic rhythmic sections born from hands-on analog sound creation. The result is a direct transference of creative energy from the artist through his instruments out to the listener.

For this 2-CD release, Steve travelled with a portable version of his Timeroom Studio to the San Francisco-based headquarters of internet radio station SomaFM. For the past twelve years, SomaFM's Drone Zone channel has exposed a global audience to the best of electronic excursions with Steve as one of their regularly featured artists. Over the past few years, SomaFM founder Rusty Hodge and Steve have discussed creating a first-time-ever live electronic transmission directly from the SomaFM home base. As an in-the-studio immersion experience, this event unfolded with a large worldwide audience tuning in; Steve channeled that awareness into this expanded excursion. The set weaves all new soundworlds with evolving themes from classic pieces into a seamless odyssey.

Structures from Silence: 2001 Remaster Edition

We have a limited number of the 2001 Remaster edition CDs available.

STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE's breathing, suspended embrace of atmospheres and serene melodies instantly struck a chord with listeners in 1984; the album continues to reiterate its timeless resonations with new listeners today.

In 1983, as Steve Roach began work on his third album, the dedication to finding his voice as a composer and artist was coming into full bloom. On this landmark recording of gentle proportions, he emerged with a sound completely outside of the 80's era in which it was created. The three long-form tracks on STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE were the birth of something new; it was an original and pure statement, a dramatic departure from his earlier works in the German-influenced electronic space music genre. Striking a balance between diaphanous and gentle, deep and reflective, the listening experience evoked a sense of silence within the music as well as the space between the chords. It expresses the breath of life and offers a meditation on delicate strands of subtle awareness.

FACTmag said: "STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE remains one of the most important ambient albums ever crafted. Its enduring influence has been unmistakably visible in the three decades since its release. It has never been more relevant."
