Steve Roach - Immersion 3 (3CD) roach32
2007. IMMERSION: THREE is the next chapter in an ongoing series of long-form, steady state "zones" created specifically as tone meditations for the living space. Gently immersive and especially effective at low volume, the non-dynamic nature of these spaces support focused day and night activities. Immersion is perfect for creative states, sleeping, reading, long hours at the computer and other functions where traditional music could be considered invasive. Minimal in nature and sonically uninterrupted without beginning or end, this 3-CD set of all-new material (nearly four hours long) brings Steve's years as a sound painter of deep subtle spaces to a place of quiet mastery. This release is especially effective in dissolving the sense of linear time.
"My deeper self explorations into exploring the hypnagogic state, the place between wakefulness and sleep are in full bloom on this set. The inspiration to expand this realm of sound and the state it helps to induce is setting the course for an exciting new phase, which I will announce soon." -- Steve Roach
"Steve Roach continues to make a rarefied sound as the Mark Rothko of electronic music." -- John Diliberto, Echoes Syndicated Radio
