Steve Roach - Immersion: two [Projekt - 2006]

Immersion: two finds Steve Roach investigating  a darker and stranger long form ambient sound world, than the first Immersion disk. Moulding and sculpting out some really very eerier and edgy nocturnal moodscapes, that have a mysterious harmonic charm, which seem to suck you in further and further to it’s slow moving dark world.

The feeling for this 70+ minute long trip is akin to floating slowly over  a nightime forest, the trees just swaying with a slight breeze. Up above a starless sky hovers cloud bound,ominous chilled light coming from the bone white moon as it  appears ever so often though the clouds thick mask. Or maybe a slow descent into cooling cave system that trickles and echoes with strange watery sounds. You feel like you’ve been walking for ages, your feet finally give up and leaving you slouched against the cave wall look out on to slowly tickly underground waterfall that’s lit by your fading touch light, that soon fades altogether leaveing you in velvet enveloping darkness. Roach very successively builds up slow shifting clouds of droning and earth sighing electronic tones and pitch black harmonics, with all manner of drippings and night breezy rushes, making this one dark sound trip you won’t want to take your ears off.

Amazingly Roach has managed to top the high standards of the first part. Making really a more involving and morphing darker flip side to part ones floating white light wonder.
