Steve Roach’s Ambient ‘Immersion Station’ Apps Available As Free Downloads For iPhone

Immersion IV

Ambient electronic artist Steve Roach and developer Eric Freeman have released updated versions of their Immersion Station ambient music apps as free downloads for iPhone.

The Immersion Station series features four iPhone apps that let you listen to continuous, evolving ambient soundscapes. The App plays an ambient soundscape, made up of 5 loops that are represented in the interface by orbs. The loops different in length, so they the combine in constantly changing ways.

You can reposition the orbs to customize the mix, with the left-right axis controlling panning and the top-bottom axis controlling the prominence of elements in the mix.

Here’s what they have to say about the updated apps:

“As an elegant interactive sound immersion tool, users can create infinite mix combinations from five different soundworlds of varied lengths, for endless evolving playback.

Created from the soundworlds of ambient music pioneer Steve Roach, Immersion Station IV places the listener in the center of a sublime, ever evolving sound environment. The user can create mixes for a personalized immersion experience or use it in the evolve mix mode.”

  1. I like Steve Roach’s music, even if it’s pretty much the same thing over and over, but these do-it-yourself instant ambient apps cheapen the genre.

  2. Totally enamored by the ‘immersion station’ apps. These works of art send me baby. Very thought provoking… for thought.

    Thank you Steve and Eric, Truly beautiful collaborative endeavor…..need I say more….

  3. Interesting concept, but very strange implementation – could have just been one app with different presets! Odd.

    Also very limited, a set of endlessly looped samples that you can mix and pan… Did I miss something?
