Steve Roach :: Back to Life (Projekt)

The album alternates subtly moving soundscapes made of nebulous waves in the pure classical tradition of the cosmic new agey drone movement with sonically dark and intense experiments.

Emblematic musical figure, true master and pioneer of the sacred space music genre, Steve Roach is back with a mesmerizing collection of long-form synthesized soundscapes. The content is focused on sound-energies, on the highly vibrating and spiritual dimension of flexuous sound waves. Back to Life is a marvelously floating and aerial musical voyage which resonates in deep space. As in most of Steve Roach releases, this last can perfectly interacts with meditative exercises of self-realization and spiritual rebirth. The album alternates subtly moving soundscapes made of nebulous waves in the pure classical tradition of the cosmic new agey drone movement (ie. “Everything inside”) with sonically dark and intense experiments (ie. “Where Rasa Lives”). The abstract and tremendously astral epic entitled “Mist of Perception” culminates the whole album with some otherworldly sound textures. Back to Life generates prolific inner visions and delivers a radically meditative musical experience to attain eternal serenity of the soul and supreme happiness. Musically and aesthetically closed to other prestigious artists of the blissed out space drone genre (Klaus Wiese, Matthias Grassow, Alio Die). Warmly recommended for those who like relaxing and expansive musical processions. This album is also a great introduction to new comers in deep ambient music and complex tendencies of spacey new age music.

Back to Life is available on Projekt.
