Silent Structures

Structures from Silence
by Steve Roach (1984)

A landmark album from the modern master of the ambient.

This is the third album by the American ambient musician Steve Roach. This is his first purely textural album, with a smooth, dark, gentle atmosphere unlike any of his other albums.

The first time I heard this I didn’t know quite what to make of it. I found the best result was to lie down in the dark with headphones on and lit it wash over me.
