Roche “A Future with No Robots”
A meditative sound world.
Roche has today released the final part of his three-part Integral Synthesia Sessions series via Jacktone Records. As with the first two parts, which landed on April 16 and April 25 respectively, part three contains two tracks exploring a range of emotion and sonic content, upbeat salutes to his hip-hop past, patient and meditative sound worlds, and intense waves of bass and percussion.
The Integral Synthesia Sessions series was recorded over the past decade at Roche’s home studio in San Francisco, and is a collection of meticulously-carved singular experiences of sound. Together, the series creates a hallucinatory narrative as well as a personal soundtrack to the moments that make up one’s life.
Roche, real name Ben Winans, has also released on 100% Silk, Mathematics, Perfect Location Recordings, Hobo Camp, and most recently a 12″ with the newly formed Vinyl Dreams Records. He co-hosted the long-running weekly event series Run the Length of Your Wildness with Cherushii, and is currently in a duo called Paramour with Bleie.
