About Steve Roach

Inventive and productive, Steve Roach has been performing and recording his desert-inspired electronic music since the early '80s. He blossomed as a composer and a musical force with 1988's Dreamtime Return, a visionary work meant to convey, expressionistically, the Australian aborigine experience, using both sampled indigenous instruments and imaginative synthesizer-generated sounds. He has released dozens of albums as a solo artist and collaborator, each of which bears his trademark fusion of exotic acoustic instruments, tribal percussion, and mesmerizing electronica. He has also produced records for like-minded artists, such as West African songwriter Takadja and South American traditionalist Jorge Reyes.
