Ambient/space music artist Steve Roach has been releasing recordings and doing live performances for nearly four decades.
But it wasn’t until recently – in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic – that he started experimenting with live streaming performance. Roach streamed his first live online event on Aug 22, 2020.
Last night, he streamed an epic 2+ hour live ambient performance, which is now available for on-demand streaming, via the embed above or on Youtube.
The concert draws on Roach’s deep history of work. It features Roach performing some of his classic pieces, like Structures From Silence; moving fluidly between space music and tribal ambient and soundscape styles; and exploring the sonic possibilities of a vast array of synthesizers and other instruments.
In addition to making the live performance available on demand, Roach has released his previous livestream performance. It’s available on Bandcamp, and you can preview it via the embed below:
“This is the mixing board recording from the first Timeroom live streaming concert recording 8 – 22 – 2020,” notes Roach. “Your purchase of this recording will support tonight‘s concert and more in the future.”
