Steve Roach

"Steve Roach has been composing and performing compelling electronic music for the last fifteen years. He juxtaposes powerfully rhythmic sequencer-based pieces with more serene passages and blends the two into a music that is uniquely personal and immediately recognizable. 'The rhythmic music, to me, really relates to the heartbeat quality, that kind of adrenaline-based excitement,' explains Roach, 'and the chords and the flowing stuff is more from a deep breath kind of dream state.'"
