QUIET MUSIC is a collection of pieces created between 1983 and 1986 in respect for silence. Harold Budd, September 29, 1986: "I think Steve Roach's QUIET MUSIC is his best album. It's not that it's simply pretty (which it is), but there's an odd edge lurking in the background that moves it miles away from 'New Age' torpor. This is a lovely album from a composer working at the top of his skills. Listening to the release anew, one can sense Roach's emerging vision of expressing a rarified, tranquil inner experience through sound and music: a vision both emotional and vivid.
