John Dilberto / Echoes Radio: "A lot of artists are going in (the analog electronic) direction these days, but few have the mastery and control that Steve Roach reveals."

Pioneering electronic musician Steve Roach taps into the zeitgeist on Skeleton Keys, a 74-minute album of analog modular synthesizer music recorded using the large format analog modular synthesizer­/sequencer-based systems. These are eight emotional and mind-expanding spiraling mandalas-of-sound made from interwoven tapestries of melody, rhythm, tone and musical space.

"Skeleton Keys connects directly to my first love in electronic music," Roach explains. "This form of music creates a living portal to a unique place in consciousness, emotion, body awareness and expansion of perception. It's a place that can only be reached by way of this genre and these instruments, in particular the sequencer: a tool common within electronic music since early in its inception. I have been obsessed with the sound this instrument facilitates since my arrival as a composer in the late 70's."

"Each piece on this release, Roach continues, "is an aural skeleton key providing entry through these arcane doors to what awaits inside. In addition, the momentum of my life's experience was vital in helping turn the skeleton key to open these doors at this precise moment."

With the sense of an artist working in three dimensional space, Roach breathes power, passion and vital life energy on Skeleton Keys. The album connects to the European EM masters at the roots of Roach's electronic heritage while simultaneously mapping the soundworld of today's contemporary technology-based music. The result is warm and engaging retro-futurism, a continuing evolution upon the musical structures he has unlocked in the restless pursuit of his soundquest.
