Dreamtime Return

Steve Roach is one of the grand masters of visionary space music, designed to transport the mind and spirit to be, feel, and experience the essences of matter, flesh, space, emotion, thought, or dream. Roach, already a master of the form when this album was recorded in 1988, spent a lot of time hiking deep in the Australian Outback, absorbing the beauty of the area's sacred sites and aboriginal rock paintings. This album marked the first time that the didgeridoo, a growling drone instrument played here by virtuoso David Hudson, was given center stage in a non-Australian recording. Using live instruments, synthesizers, and recordings of Aboriginal tribesmen, Roach creates a space in which to disappear. Elongated drones and tones might pull you over the dome of the cosmos, while echoing piano notes twinkle with an ancient knowledge. You follow organ tones as they get sucked sourly into a whirlpool, and ghostly moans flap past like bats. Roach can combine sounds to portray rock -- very old rock -- and if you let yourself go with the flow, you can experience being a primordial stone. If you think new age music is airy and insubstantial, think again. The tone of this music can pull you deep into the psyche, and its character-building depths are peaceful and nurturing. Two discs offer a 127-minute sonic excursion, on which fellow travellers Kevin Braheny and Robert Rich sit in.
