Suspended Memories (Steve Roach, Jorge Reyes, Suso Saiz)
1994 Hearts of Space HS11043 (CD)
Reviewed by Cliff Tuel, Linda Kohanov, Muze, The Tracking Angle

The second chapter in the Suspended Memories story. Recorded between concert dates in Spain and Germany. This recording presents a more complex and layered sound due to the studio conditions the group found themselves in. A "Next World" sound is further explored. Prehispanic and Mexican shamanic influences merge with more urgent rhythms while the guitar and synths create the expansive fabric on which it all sits. Winner of the NAIRD Independent Release of the Year, 1993.

Forgotten Gods
Suspended Memories (Steve Roach, Jorge Reyes, Suso Saiz)
1993 Hearts of Space HS11034 (CD)
Reviewed by AmbiEntrance, launch.com, Muze

The music rises up from the darkness and howls at the moon. An ancient voice chants in serpentine ecstacy, only to subside and hover next to silence. In those moments when the sound dissolves beyond recognition, the subconscious leaks through, whispering of faded visions painted on stone, of memories suspended by the passage of time, of gods long forgotten. This is the world where Steve Roach, Jorge Reyes and Suso Saiz create their music. There are no scores, no plans, in the initial stages of composition. Like jazz artists who extemporize freely through a shared musical language, the members of Suspended Memories connect on an intuitive level of pure sound. But it isn't jazz they're playing. Roach, Reyes, and Saiz practice a form of collective improvisation from another time, another place, maybe one that never really existed before, except in the shrouded landscapes of a shaman's dream.

Halcyon Days

1996 Hearts of Space 11072 (CD, Poster)
Reviewed by Alternate Music Press, Asterism, Muze, Wired

Steve joins in on a spirited super-session with didgeridoo master Stephen Kent and Indonesian and electron wizard Kenneth Newby. Created during the HALCYON DAYS of winter 1995, this recording can be compared to the Suspended Memories sessions, where the magic of the moment is sought after and captured on tape during the extensive 10-day marathon session in which the music was created. Kent and Newby of Trance Mission and Lights in a Fat City have played together for years. A visit to the Timeroom for the collaboration with Steve presented a unique chapter in their mutual pursuit of empowered music for the "Archaic Revival".

Reviewed by i/e, Inner-Views, Muze

True shamanic music: Actual peyote and ayahuasca ceremonies provide the foundation for this collaboration with Ron Sunsinger and Michael Stearns. Not for the weak at heart. The four directions provide a symbolic symmetry to this extraordinary recording. The artists also combine recordings they made together within a labyrinth of caves in New Mexico, adding yet another ingredient to the broth.

Reviewed by Gary Andrews, Brian Parnham, various listener comments, Billboard, L.A. Weekly, Muze, Progressive World, RhythmUS, SCI FI Magazine, Wind and Wire

LIGHT FANTASTIC does much to subvert one's expectations of musical structure, while remaining unabashedly beautiful throughout. Roach's soundworlds have never sounded more rich and full of light. On the other hand, the complexity of the 'fractal grooves' allows the hybrid percussion to assume what would be the melodic content of a given piece. The rhythms are as willful and intricate as an African drumming group or drum 'n' bass track, continually morphing from one pattern into another, describing animated moiré patterns in sound.

Reviewed by Alternate Music Press, Alternative Press, AmbiEntrance, Daily Digital Opinion

Anyone who has seen Steve Roach perform live knows that his music and sound worlds have a unique power to inspire and engage the listener. ON THIS PLANET was carved from the live experience, recorded in the studio over 1997 just before and after performing numerous concerts worldwide. The intensity of the moment is captured, along with remarkable quality of sound which is vital to the impact of the music. It all comes together here. Ethno-Tribal, Electronic-Space, Tribal-Ambient -- or however one wants to try and classify a style of music and sound unique to Steve Roach. This dynamic concert for your home is presented just as the concerts of '97 were, in a constant flow of sonic magma, constantly unfolding and then melting into itself to create the nexus place. This release was voted best Electronic-Ambient CD of the year in 1998 by AIFM, the equivalent of a Grammy for indie labels.

Reviewed by Cliff Tuel, Asterism, i/e, Muze, Tucson Citizen, Wired

A Magnum Opus of pure oceanic sound and Roach's most sophisticated atmospheric work to date. The final track "Altus", Latin for both "high" and "deep", says much about this work. The most demanding and textural of Roach's work, it has more in common with 20th century avant-garde than other genres. A chilling and beautiful continuous flow of harmonic sound-worlds. Melody and harmony are present throughout in a surreal play of light and dark colors.
