John Diliberto, Echoes Radio: "...like riding the perfect wave in slow motion... as if sculpting liquid, Roach carefully shapes his sounds into a stately crescendo for an eternal dawn."

Genres: New Age, Ambient, Electronic

Steve Roach's 1984 Structures from Silence is an ambient classic often spoken of in the same breath as Eno's Music For Airports. Projekt celebrates Structures' 40th anniversary with a beautiful remastered edition.

The breathing, suspended embrace of atmospheres and serene melodies instantly struck a chord with listeners in 1984; the album continues to reiterate its timeless resonations with new listeners today.

On this landmark recording of gentle proportions, the three long-form tracks were the birth of something new: an original and pure balance between diaphanous and understated, deep and reflective. The tracks evoke a sense of silence within the music as well as the space between the chords.

Pitchfork: "Top-40 Best Ambient Albums of All Time. Contemplative bliss, full of purring drones and high notes that shimmer and fade. Like a desert mirage, these structures hover forever at the horizon, an oasis from the din surrounding it."

Structures From Silence remains an iconic American release in the ambient and electronic genres. A well-respected soundtrack for contemplation, relaxation, meditation, and creativity, it's emotional, powerful, and enriching. It is a living example of music's true healing quality.

Yoga Journal Magazine: "Top ten all time releases for Yoga."

Rediscover this timeless classic. The new mastering reveals the stillness within, setting the tone for the next 40 years of silence.

Bio: With his 44-year dedication to the evolution of atmospheric-electronic music, Steve Roach is an internationally-renowned artist creating timeless ephemeral & empowered spaces that sooth, inspire and enlighten.

Press Quotes

'Forty years after the release of Steve Roach's Structures from Silence, the intervening decades have only proved that it's as serenely timeless as we thought it was the first time around, still sounding like slow motion surfing on the perfect wave to infinity.'

     —John Diliberto, (((echoes radio)))

#10 best album of the 80s! Steve Roach's Structures From Silence remains one of the most important ambient albums ever crafted... its enduring influence has been unmistakably visible in the three decades since its release. It has never been more relevant.

     —FACT Magazine

Roach... began a formidable mid-'80s run with Structures from Silence. The main attraction on that 1984 release is the half-hour title track, on which Roach opens vast chasms... This is about as good as pure ambient synthesizer music gets.

     —Daniel Bromfield , SPIN Magazine, July 2024
