Ambient music at its best!!
Richard Grtler / Bratislava, Slovakia
I still keep in mind the moment during February 2015, when I was visiting Steve and his studio spaces in Baja Arizona and he revealed his upcoming collaborative project with talented UK’s artist Robert Logan. At that time this name was a brand new to me, so my curiosity was quite big and even after exploring some of Robert’s recordings, I didn’t have any idea what to expect. Firstly unfolding as a long distance collaboration thanks to Robert Logan’s father, who contacted Steve during the second half of 2000s (there is a nice story behind that on Steve’s website), then shaping real contours towards the end of 2015, when Robert Logan visited and merged his gifted artistry with the Master at his Timehouse studio. Then the end of April 2016 has brought to us via Projekt two creatively fruitful efforts entitled Second Nature” and “Biosonic”. Blending two visionaries beyond the limits

A delicate woosh coming from nowhere welcomes the first notes of Robert Logan’s electric grand piano. These notes fall in the hollow of our ears as drops of pearl and disperse subtle effects of reverberations, extending every harmonious breath which get melt in this mass of synth layers that Steve Roach frees with the imprint of his best moments of meditative inspiration. In fact one would believe to hear a relic of Ambient 2: The Plateaux of Mirror by Harold Budd and Brian Eno on Second Nature, an unforeseen album arisen from the sessions which aimed to finalize the Biosonic project.
Here, there is not a rhythm. Only thoughts put in music by an elegant and very dreamy piano that Logan frees from its dumbness with fingers marked by melancholy. And every note finds echo in these synth layers with colors as impenetrable as the density around which they are embroidered. Moment’s Notice” is an ambitious monument of placidity where the rom ance dresses of its darkest assets while the very much longer title-track plays on the atmospheres by injecting a more harmonious dose in these immersive layers that Roach drew in the ambio-morphic depths of his Immersion series. From the height of its 32 minutes
