Burnside Album Details
Roach, Steve, Long Thoughts
Long Thoughts is ambient music master Steve Roach’s first long-form electronic release on Projekt since 2012. In an era where a constant deluge of overstimulation from all directions challenges and fractalizes our attention span into smaller and smaller packets, this 73-minute sanctuary provides solace: a soul-renewing immersion in the deeper end of the self-reflection pool. Experienced in looped infinite playback mode, the album creates a sense of constant, sustained nourishment to realign, reset, and soften the edges of modern life’s quantized thought process. Roach’s pioneering approach to the soundscape-drone-ambient artform draws from a rich harmonic tapestry of chordal interweaves and original sound design. Moving beyond the static form of drone music, Roach’s work in this area breathes and sighs with an organic wave that exists in its own dimension yet feels intimately familiar. His dedication to this artform presents a vital sanctuary of deep resonance and reflection.
