Journey Of One
Format:2-CD 6 panel DigiPak. Journey of One is a pinnacle live performance captured during the zenith of Roach's rich tribal-ambient origins of the mid-1990's. The music rises from the darkness, an ancient voice chants in serpentine ecstasy only to subside and hover next to silence, soon broken by raging hybrid trance grooves, didgeridoo and mind-altering soundscapes that mesh as a soundtrack for a future-primal culture. Journey of One is an ascent into the mystical and primordial places Roach first developed on Dreamtime Return, Artifacts, Origins, World's Edge and his Suspended Memories collaborations. This 2-CD set unfolds like the genesis of this influential sound. "Roach conjures up stirring, metaphysical sounds and deeply inventive events from his electro-acoustic arsenal. It's an exploration of worlds simultaneously ancient, mystic and subconscious: the fourth, fifth, and infinite worlds beyond. These must surely have been the sounds ancient cultures rehearsed while the continental plates shifted below them." -Muze (about Steve's mid-90's releases). This release is a stunning testament to the amazing live experience that Roach has developed over the years and a first-hand look at one of the original proponents of the tribal-ambient sound in action.
