Steve Roach

1983 - 1986

Compiling the three similarly titled cassettes he released in 1986 into one extensive three hour deep dive, Quiet Music found Steve Roach presenting a variety of compositions done both solo and in collaboration with others between 1983 and 1986. On the one hand it’s something of an addendum and catch-all in the wake of Structures From Silence, but it’s also an early example of Roach’s incredibly steady and consistent work rate, where the process of recording mesmerizing electronic meditations is as important as the enjoyable end results.
