Duff Egan It took me years, but I finally made it out to a Steve Roach show in Tucson earlier this year. It was a small venue, Solar Culture, with an intimate setting full of personality. The Delicate Forever was played at the intro and outro and hearing these sounds again has a tremendous impact on me. It brings back positive and lasting memories of the concerts and the people sitting together in silence, enjoying this amazing music. Looking forward to the next release!

Nathan Poorman This one has been massaging my aural/neural network for weeks. It reminds me of a blend of immersion:one and Structures from Silence.

24/96 High Res Studio Master:

Steve Roach’s new studio release, The Delicate Forever, presents a reverie of gentle and etheric ambient sound meditations that awaken complex and resonant states of emotional and psychological perspectives. The nuanced, minimal electronics interplay with a masterful use of musical space, breath, silence, and rich textural colors in a subtle dynamic flow. Nurturing the senses in inexplicable ways, these sound paintings become an evocative environment for activating a state of rarefied reflections.
As a pioneer of ambient-electronic-contemplative music, Steve Roach has dedicated nearly four decades to creating music that connects into a deep well of inspiration and innovation. His expansive, time-suspending soundworlds earned his position in the global pantheon of major new music artists. His live concerts are events that draw avid participants from around the world. His studio work blends seamlessly into the live setting, just as the in-the-moment live energy informs the core of his work in the studio.

Roach says the process of revisiting his classic Structures From Silence – for the recent 3-CD thirtieth anniversary reissue – helped inspire the pieces that evolved into The Delicate Forever.

Roach reflects, “After placing such detailed focus on the Structures From Silence remaster, along with the new pieces on the second and third disc, I was taken through the eye of the needle in many ways. This new sense in my fingertips awoke when using the analog instruments, giving way to a new level of subtle, delicate sonic shifts of harmonic texture and form. At the same time, a kind of hearing through an ‘inner’ ear seemed to occur. A reaching towards new tonalities and colors became my obsession; making this conscious is where I am living now, day and night. The ‘forever’ is directly connected to the underlying current of life – mortality. The Delicate Forever maps out a new phase in my current work, reaching further towards a deeper ineffable experience.”
