Now (1982) is the debut album by American ambient musician Steve Roach. During the time that this album was recorded, Roach performed frequent live concerts. Often immediately after these performances he would return to his home studio to record his newly inspired material. Many of the tracks on this album were created in this manner.
Most of the tracks on this album are fast paced pieces recorded with a complex array of analog sequencers, in a fashion inspired by the Berlin School of electronic music and innovative production techniques. There is one textural ambient piece titled "Cloud Motion".
