Two and a Half Minutes Out Steve Roach’s Inner Window (MP3)

The latest from widescreen ambient figure Steve Roach is the double-CD Dynamic Stillness on the Projekt label. As always, he’s posted healthy excerpts of all his newly recorded aural vistas, and one highlight is “Further Inside,” close to two and a half minutes of droning, cloud-like sonic structures (MP3). These aren’t clouds that merely hover. They’re clouds that slowly and continuously transform — vapors ever twisting, expanding, contracting, and convulsing. The sounds are most easily comprehensible if you think of them as being distant, horizon-spanning phenomena. Roach on his recordings characteristically employs a sense of scale far more massive than do most musicians, even if the music itself is quite fragile.
