Out via Timeroom Editions later next month is a live album by Steve Roach: “Live at SoundQuest Fest 2021”. The CD comes in a 4-panel digipak and is limited to 500 copies. Performed from Steve’s Timeroom studio the set captured much of how Steve works in the studio: a starting map is composed, and from that point the trajectory constantly evolves as the moment calls out.
SoundQuest Fest was first experienced and produced by Steve in 2010 as a live festival in Tucson, Arizona. Picking up from there, the 2021 version united a worldwide gathering of artists and audience members for an online streaming event. The event was a three-day flow of streaming performances from international artists, audio-video wonder worlds, ambient VJ sets, interviews, music videos and deep immersion zones.
