Artists 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.”
