A Deeper Silence
by Bert Strolenberg, Sonic Immersion
Steve Roach continues his quest into the deep end of the soundcurrent, and has come up with A DEEPER SILENCE.
Reflecting back on his beautiful '84 classic recording STRUCTURES FROM SILENCE, it's a continuous playback recording of almost 74 minutes, about which Steve says it's "minimal and infinite in its essence, like all of my long-form zones".
But this time, the sonic journey definitely goes much deeper inward, roaming in carefully molded darker, mysterious and dense atmospherics which float and shapeshift in freeform spaces.
Listening to this album actually feels like an ongoing search for the silence embedded deep inside oneself. It's an experience that's beyond words, something that you have to experience with your very own senses.
