Steve Roach

Episode 11, A Sonic Journey

The pulse of life in all its beauty has a cadence, a beat, a rhythm. Twice grammy-nominated composer and musician Steve Roach sensed this music of life and channelled it into his own genre of inspirational musical soundscapes.

The sounds and rhythms he creates come from his visceral response to nature. Roach drew inspiration from the expansive atmosphere of his surroundings to uncover and discover a palpable sound current. He essentially uses his senses as a tuning instrument to mix a palette of electronic and organic sounds to compose music that takes you on a journey towards deeper self-awareness and higher perception. Since releasing his first album in 1982, Roach now stands among the giants of modern ambient music and is one of the most respected electronic musicians in the world. His discography is enormous with well over 100 releases.

Music has the ability to connect to the deeper, more expansive part of yourself—the place of self-care—creating sanctuary with sound.

Roach started creating his music during the late 70’s golden age of analog synthesizers, a time when digital was in its infancy. His albums continue that hands-on tradition using modular and stand-alone synthesizers as well as acoustic instruments and have garnered two back-to-back Grammy nominations in the Best New Age Album category for Spiral Revelations (2017) and Molecules of Motion (2018). Always reaching toward what’s next on the horizon, Roach refuses to be tied down in any one stylistic direction. His worldwide audience continues to grow, and his innovations continue to inspire new and long-time listeners.

Listening to a Steve Roach album, you’re hearing the momentum of a lifetime dedicated to the sound current, an artist operating at the pinnacle of his art form, with dedication, passion, and an unbroken focus on creating a personal vision of electronic music.

Take a journey with the music of Steve Roach.
