Pitchfork's Top-40 Best Ambient Albums of All Time, May 2017: "...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's 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. For the 30th anniversary, Roach went back to the original analog mixes for a 24/96k remaster that reveals luscious quality and subtle tonal detail not heard since he was in the studio.
On this landmark recording of gentle proportions, the three long-form tracks were the birth of something new: an original and pure statement striking a balance between diaphanous and gentle, deep and reflective. The listening experience evokes a sense of silence within the music as well as the space between the chords. It expresses the breath of life and offers a meditation on delicate strands of subtle awareness.
Thirty years later, Structures From Silence remains an iconic American release in the ambient and electronic genres. It's a well-respected soundtrack for contemplation, relaxation, meditation, and creativity. Emotional, powerful, and enriching, it is a living example of the true healing quality that music can hold.
FACTmag: "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."
Yoga Journal Magazine: "Top Ten All Time releases for Yoga."
With a beautiful new audio transfer that perfectly reveals the silence within, this release sets the tone for the next 30 years of silence.
