If you’re familiar with ambient music, there is a good chance you’ve heard of Steve Roach. Having amassed a dedicated fanbase as a result of his deep, prolific catalogue, Steve has immortalized himself into the metaphorical ambient music Hall of Fame. Steve’s earthy atmosphere coupled with an impressive array of synth compositions makes for quite the experience. He was introduced to the scene with his debut album Now in 1982, but soon found himself the subject of tremendous acclaim for his sonic excursions, Structures from Silence and Dreamtime Return. With a resume spanning the greater part of three decades and consistently mentioned as one of the greatest ambient acts of all time, it is with great pleasure that I bring you an interview with him. Here, we discuss the nature of the creative impetus and solitude.
