the ProjektList 💌 Steve Roach Live, Erik Wøllo video, & more great music (3-23-23)
From Projekt’s Sam Rosenthal.
A lot of excitement over at Projekt around Steve Roach’s recent 2CD release, Rest of Life. It’s been getting phenomenal feedback from fans, selling like hotcakes, and was selected as Echoes Radio‘s March CD of the Month. John Diliberto (of Echoes) posted his interview with Steve & Linda as a podcast he writes: “In 1984 Steve Roach released what remains one of his two best known recordings, Structures from Silence. Now, nearly 40 years later he returns to that sound on the album, Rest of Life. It’s a double CD of mostly quiet and deep ruminations. There’s no digeridoos or modular synthesizers, but there is the electric violin of his wife, Linda Kohanov. From their home in the Arizona desert, they talk about revisiting the spirit of Structures, and horses.”
Steve Roach Live in Los Angeles
Steve Roach returns for his first Los Angeles show in 4 years. Following his filled-to-capacity 2019 Pasadena cathedral event, on June 3rd Roach takes us on a sound journey at the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles in the Westlake neighborhood. The Reflections Concert event sees the church come alive with two hours of truly sublime, otherworldly music, accompanied by immersive, architecturally-mapped light projections.

Event & ticketing
Steve Roach Live in Tucson @ Ambient Lounge
The next Ambient Lounge on April 4 features sets by electric-ambient violist Linda Kohanov, atmospheric electro acoustic artist Chris Meyer and artist-in-residence Steve Roach. This night in the monthly series in the elegant Century Room at the historic Congress Hotel in downtown Tucson is going to be a dynamic experience within the deep end of all things immersive. Linda will be expanding her recent contributions to the album Rest of Life, while Steve continues to use the lounge to expand and develop new as well as established pieces for the live experience. Tickets here, and at the door if any are left.
|Could you do us a favor? I figure you probably picked up Rest of Life direct from Steve, or from Projekt’s website, however over at Amazon the release looks very lonely without a single fan review. Could you write something? It doesn’t need to be journalism, just a reflection of your feelings on the album. The words of other fans helps prospective buyers get a feeling for the release and perhaps purchase with their Prime account. Thanks so much for this.|
