On April 15th, eclectic, innovative label Projekt releases the deluxe 30th anniversary 3-CD remastered edition of Steve Roach’s Structures From Silence: a classic title in the ambient & electronic music fields. Roach has been an American pioneer for over 30 years, and Structures’ re-release is timely, and significant, at this stage in the ongoing evolution of the ever-broadening field. Here’s an excerpt:
Incidentally, way back in October 2002, New Age Voice Magazine compiled an influential list of “The 25 Most Influential Ambient Albums Of All Time”. Here are the Top 5 titles.
No. 1 Brian Eno ~ Ambient 1: Music for Airports (Editions EG)
No. 2 Steve Roach ~ Dreamtime Return (Fortuna/Projekt in 2003)
No. 3 Wendy Carlos ~ Sonic Seasonings (East Side Digital)
No. 4 Steve Roach ~ Structures from Silence (Projekt)
No. 5 Michael Stearns ~ Planetary Unfolding (Continuum Montage)
Pretty heady company that Roach gentleman keeps.
