Sonic synergy illuminates the dark desert of a tribal terrain.
European audiences have always been ahead of the curve in their appreciation of electronic music. So its no surprise that, while touring Europe in 1993, Steve Roach was spurred into an instant collaboration with German synthesist, Elmar Schulte. Like some would exchange ideas over a beer at a bistro, Roach and Schulte made haste to a recording studio and let their music do the talking.
Roach teamed with Schulte at a time when he was producing astonishing solo albums like Worlds Edge, Origins and Artifacts and mesmerizing hybrids in collaboration with Robert Rich, Jorge Reyes and Suso Saiz. Roachs music is unstoppable in its evolutionary development and remains forever fresh and vital, but Ritual Ground represents that period in time when tribal elements became a gripping quotient in the ambient equation. The rhythmic power of tribal music and the warm chill of deep space music combine here to access spiritual caverns with sublime emotional resonance.
In its original release from the now-defunct Silent Records, the album
was easily missed, due to the fact that neither artists name appeared
anywhere on the outer packaging. But enjoy it now, like the unearthed
masterpiece that it is.
In 1993, Roach went to Europe for his first series of concerts outside the United States. While there, he met German synthesizer artist Elmar Schulte, whose own work has appeared on several different European labels. Spurred by their mutual desire to create new, tribal music, Roach and Schulte immediately booked studio time. The result of their intensive meeting of musical minds was this album.
