After releasing his third studio album, 1984’s Structures from Silence, Roach was asked to create music for the developing meditation, yoga and healing arts community in Los Angeles.

Quiet Music 1 was originally commissioned for a meditation video, while Quiet Music 2 was inspired by Roach’s time in deserts, and Quiet Music 3 was designed for Roach’s own personal healing practices.

The series was originally released as a three-part cassette tape offering in 1986 via Fortuna Records.

Quiet Music follows Telephone Explosion Records’ reissue of Roach’s 1988 Dreamtime Return on vinyl for the first time.
