This soundscape-ambient artform draws from a rich harmonic tapestry of chordal interweaves and original sound design.
Ambient music master Steve Roachâs long-form electronic release. In an era where a constant deluge of overstimulation from all directions challenges and fractalizes our attention span into smaller and smaller packets, 73-minute sanctuary provides solace: a soul-renewing immersion in the deeper end of the self-reflection pool.
This extended time frame ofLong Thoughtssupports a subtle, developing sense of the energy within the piece. A consummate evolution is important to Steveâs fully immersed micro-to-macro-soundsculpting approach. When experienced in looped infinite playback mode, the album creates a sense of constant, sustained nourishment to realign, reset, and soften the edges of modern lifeâs quantized thought process.
Long ThoughtsÂ is part of a larger body of acclaimed long-form pieces from Roachâs vast catalog. To the Threshold Of Silence, The Dream Circle, Slow Heat,and Bloodmoon Rising are all part of the sonic DNA contained in this release. Roachâs pioneering approach to the soundscape-drone-ambient artform draws from a rich harmonic tapestry of chordal interweaves and original sound design. Moving beyond the static form of drone music, Roachâs work in this area breathes and sighs with an organic wave that exists in its own dimension yet feels intimately familiar.
The music presents the listener with many ways to create their own zone: gazing into the summer night sky, endless loop mode in the home at a low volume, direct engagement at a louder volume, used as a sleep environment, or for âholding of the spaceâ as a kind of aural incense burning gently through the day and night.
As Roach enters his 4th decade as an artist of visionary soundworlds, his dedication to this artform presents a vital sanctuary of deep resonance and reflection.
