While the term “classic” is used freely these days, Structures from Silence has earned the “classic” status in the years following its release in 1984. The breathing suspended embrace of atmospheres and serene melodies on this breakthrough release introduced a new sound for its time, generating an abundance of feedback via cards and letters from listeners long before the dawn of email. Structures from Silence is a living example of the true healing quality that music can hold.

“Structures from Silence is like riding the perfect wave in slow motion . . . as if sculpting liquid, Roach carefully shapes his sounds into a stately crescendo for an eternal dawn.”
– John Diliberto, ECHOES radio show producer

"Heralded by many as one of the finest Ambient works of all time Steve Roach’s Structures from Silence is right up there with Brian Eno’s Music for Airports and deservedly so."
-- All Music

"In December 2000, Yoga Journal voted Structures from Silence one of the top-10 all time CDs for yoga —16 years after it was first released — proving this CD to be one of the ultimate soundtracks for contemplation, relaxation, meditation, and focused creativity. " -- Yoga Journal

In 2008 Eckhart Tolle, spirtual teacher and author of the best-selling books “The Power of Now” and “The New Earth” released a CD titled Eckhart Tolle’s Music to Quiet The Mind. Drawn from Eckhart’s favorite pieces, Steve was honored to have an excerpt from “Structures From Silence” included.
