Vine ~ Bark & Spore

Jorge Reyes , Steve Roach

Timeroom Editions

The second in Steve Roach’s irregular series of collaborations with Jorge Reyes, 2000’s Vine ~ Bark & Spore is another example of Roach’s interest in exploring the sense of what a ritual or spiritual event might be like via sound and atmosphere, in this case seeming to suggest something serene but still strange in a possible jungle setting. Titles like “The Holy Dirt” and “Healing Temple” underscore that aspect, but as a listening experience in and of itself it’s an agreeably mysterious and gentle one, with suffused echo adding to a sense of mystery.
