2012 Projekt PRO280 (CD) – Digipak
Projekt has re-released the monumental live in-concert Stormwarning. This release presents perhaps the most intense set of live sequencer music you will experience. Using all analog hardware gear, with what amounted to an entire studio setup on stage, the focus, development of the pieces and the power of the sound is unmatched.
STORMWARNING takes you to the outer edges of Steve Roach's music where he engages in a driving high-energy sound first explored on albums EMPETUS, and NOW / TRAVELER. In the live performances of STORMWARNING, Roach unlocks the synchronous perfection of sequencers, creating elaborate, interlocking patterns that weave into infinite, Escher-like designs, set against Roach's skyscraping synthesizer fury.
This version includes "Day Three", a 21 minute sequencer piece which was recorded on Steve's first tour of Germany, and definitely feels like a missing piece to the puzzle in terms of its musical content and energy. Those who love the high-energy dramatic sequencer era of Steve's work will love this edition at over 70 minutes total playing time.
