For all those out there who are new the world of ambient and spacemusic, this cd surely is a good start.
“Space and Time” features and overview of music by ambient legend Steve Roach made in the past 20 years or so. Within 74:00 minutes, the listener encounters a selection of tracks from his magnus opus “Mystic Chords and Sacred Spaces”, followed by a journey into the sedate, introspective atmospheres of “Structures from Silence”, “Quiet Music” and “Dreamtime Return”.
But there’s also more dynamic work to be found here, like “The Calling” from the inspiring album “Trance Spirits”. As sort of “bonus”, the cd features the brand new, unreleased track “Fever Glimpse” of the (then forthcoming) same titled release.
All in all, this introduction to the soundworlds of Steve Roach is a must-have, also for those who already have the aforementioned albums on the shelf. In my opinion, Steve Roach has done another marvelous job merging different tracks and albums together, all ending up in masterful, heartfelt textures and soundworlds…
