7. The Magnificent Void 13:13
8. Altus 20:01

A Magnum Opus of pure oceanic sound and Roach’s most sophisticated atmospheric work to date. The final track “Altus”, Latin for both “high” and “deep”, says much about this work. The most demanding and textural of Roach’s work, it has more in common with 20th century avant-garde than other genres. A chilling and beautiful continuous flow of harmonic sound-worlds. Melody and harmony are present throughout in a surreal play of light and dark colors.
