Robert Rich & Steve Roach - Strata (1990)
The first of two excellent collaborative albums from influential ambient/new age artists (and OPIUM HUM favorites) Robert Rich and Steve Roach. Roach's hypnotic, tribal rhythms mix extraordinarily well with Rich's darker, Eastern-tinged melodies, and glacial synth work provides a spacious, enveloping aural landscape. The end result is some of the richest, most evocative music in either one of their discographies.
4. The Grotto of Time Lost
7. Persistence of Memory (for Dali)
9. Ceremony of Shadows
10. La Luna
