Steve Roach - Spiral Revelation (CD)

$ 17.99


Release Date: 01/20/17

Grammy Nominated masterful expression of an artist’s soul infused in the art form of electronic music.

Grammy Nominated for “Best New Age Album” at the 60th annual Grammy Awards (2017).

The sound of life, interconnected and unfurling. The spiral – a visual symbol of eternity – is a recurring metaphoric theme in Roach’s pioneering electronic work. Interpreted into musical form, these six spiraling sonic experiences offer a living activation that connects with a sense of the infinite. Roach’s long history and love of analog sequencer-based styles reveal a continuing, evolving awakening within these 63 minutes. Using only analog and hardware instruments to focus the mind’s ear upon a filigree of intricate patterns woven with a direct hands-on approach, the artist sculpts and caresses sound into being in real time. An emotional through-line brings life to these pieces as the unfurling of time’s windings connects to the vivid present, life-affirming and illuminated. A masterful expression of an artist who infuses his soul into the art form of electronic music.

Echoes Radio, John Diliberto: “Spiral Revelationstands out as a true, mind-tripping, trance inducing album. A quintessential example of Roach’s sequencer driven oeuvre.”

All Music Guide: “Steve Roach's first work to be nominated for a Grammy award (in the New Age category), Spiral Revelationrevisits his Berlin-school roots. It’s a sequencer-driven work filled with swirling textures and flickering arpeggios, constantly venturing down a path toward personal enlightenment. Crafted with Roach's expansive analog hardware synth set-up, there's a very tactile feel to these pieces, as he shapes and guides them in real time. It sounds spontaneous, yet there's a very clear sense of direction. Best of all is the 20-minute title track which concludes the release, which offsets rapid pulsations with a slower bass thump. While such a combination could be dizzying, Roach manages to do it in a way that stimulates the brain. Magnificent, well though-out work, as always.”
