Created in respect for silence,
Quiet Music originates from the same era as Roachâs classic 1984 release Structures From Silence. This album finds the gentle synthesizer electronics mixing with flute, electric piano and natural sounds flowing like breath, enveloping the listener in a sustained, delicate, translucent atmosphere.
Harold Budd, Los Angeles, 1986: âI think Steve RoachâsQuiet Musicis his best album. Itâs not that itâs simply pretty (which it is), but thereâs an odd edge lurking in the background that moves it miles away from âNew Ageâ torpor. This is a lovely album from a composer working at the top of his skills.â
Allmusic.com: âQuiet Musicis the essence of pure, meditative ambience. Steve Roach has always been a visionary performer; his work defines âelegant futurism.â He released these on cassette in 1986, and it remains in the forefront of introspective minimalism. This series set the stage for all minimalists to follow. This is groundbreaking space music from an epic and legendary performer. He is peerless in his corner of the perpendicular universe.â
Much of this music began as a series of early-â80s recordings commissioned by healing-arts programs and later used for everything from personal meditation to birthing music. Today these pieces stand as a cornerstone in body-work, yoga, and healing therapies.
A timeless masterpiece.
