Minimal and infinite
Steve Roach continues his quest into the deep end of the soundcurrent, and has come up with A Deeper Silence”.Reflecting back on his beautiful 84 classic recording “Structures from Silence”
Phil Derby / Electroambient Space
By now Steve Roach fans should know what to expect when an album is comprised of a single long-form work. A Deeper Silence could just as easily have been named Immersion Four, but whatever you want to call it, it adds up to another sublime piece of minimal atmospheric ambience. If you enjoy The Dream Circle, Piece of Infinity, and Darkest Before Dawn, you are virtually assured of liking this as well. A Deeper Silence, like its predecessors, does nothing special to command attention. There are no dizzying heights, no stark depths, no one thing to attract one to it. And yet, it is these same characteristics that pull one into its sonic world, drawn in by virtue of its subtlety and softness. It is a static and yet ever-shifting piece, evoking images of clouds, mist, darkness, and the like. It plays like an infinite loop, one that I have gladly listened to from start to finish on several occasions.
Equally enjoyable for deep listening with headphones or passive listening in the background, A Deeper Silence is classic Steve Roach.
