Burnside Album Details
Roach, Steve, Sigh of Ages
"Emotions quietly stir and resonate in this deeply self-reflective album exploring the terrain between melodic electronic/ambient and modern minimalism. These six pieces utilize gentle melody, harmony and sonic tonality to poignantly reflect upon the passage of time, life lived, lives passed and a time of renewal: a sigh of the ages expressed in sound. The reflections and perceptions expressed on Sigh of Ages delves into a contrasted intimate space only accessed in times of solitude, it is the deeply-layered, subtley-nuanced emotional language which is the ongoing, unseen undercurrent of our lives. SONIC IMMERSION: “Ambient master Steve Roach brings us a grand and highly reflective work or art, a soft dweller into spacious textural realms. To compose the music, Steve once more returned to some beautiful analogue synthesizers, which included the classic 40-year-old Arp String Ensemble. Undeniably, this is one of Roach's most personal sound trips to date, meant for deep listening. It's a moving testament to temporal nature and the unspoken subtle currents of life itself.” "
