A Deeper Silence (2008) is an album by the American ambient musician Steve Roach.

Concept[edit]

A Deeper Silence was created to be unobtrusive and minimal, similar in nature to Structures from Silence and Darkest Before Dawn,[2] and forgoes the more apparent layering, weaving of sound, and subtle shifts in structure that occur in the Immersion series. The long-form piece, in its entirety, remains in the deeper tonal ranges, and is described by Steve Roach as "billowing...like a big sigh," "breathing," and "infinite in its essence."[3]

Production[edit]

Upon completion, A Deeper Silence was played back in "loop mode" for four months in Steve Roach's sleep chamber before being released.[4]
