Free Music Friday: A 30th Anniversary Tribute to Steve Roach’s Structures From Silence

Free Music Friday: Free Floating Music has released Quiet Friends – a 30th anniversary  tribute to the Steve Roach classic, Structures From Silence.

Quiet Friends is a collection of ambient music that is ‘inspired by the blueprint of Structures From Silence.
