Steve has collaborated with numerous visual artists since the beginning of his career in Los Angeles starting in the early 1980’s. During his 11 years living on edge of innovations with sound and vision in Los Angeles it was common to see “Vuscians” set up on the same stage improvising with video synthesizers and using projection systems of that era. Fast forward to 2013, hundreds of music — visual concerts worldwide this Vortex Dome Immersion concert experience is a homecoming for Steve Roach who has not performed in Los Angeles since the early 1990s. Joining up with Steve to carry the visual torch into now, 360 dome visual artist and VJ, Audri Phillips, will be creating original material for the event and presenting it as live in the moment interaction with the Steve’s space and time altering soundworlds.

“With his distinctive melange of analogue and digital synthesisers, acoustic instrumentation and highly imaginative soundscaping, Steve Roach is a giant in modern ambient and one of the most respected electronic musicians in the world. He’s been noted for the deep inspiration he draws from the European electronic tradition, and you can certainly hear the legacy of German psychedelic electronica and spacemusic throughout his work; sometimes not in melody, but certainly in its atmosphere and large, reverberant spaces. Another major source of inspiration for Roach is desert wilderness, including the starkly beautiful deserts and wide open spaces of his Arizona home which continue to colour his music to this day.”
