Roachapproach

1984 SQ3. Discovered 1984 Sept. 28 by B. A. Skiff at Anderson Mesa.

Named in honor of Steve Roach, musician and composer of 'space music'. Among the most progressive performers in the genre, his prolific output includes seminal works such as "Structures from Silence" (1984), "Dreamtime Return" (1988) and "The Magnificent Void" (1996). His mixture ofheavily-processed electronic sounds with primitive woodwinds and percussion conveys powerful impressions of spatial immensity. These have inspired the discoverer through endless nights at the telescope. (M 31296) Name suggested by L. Kohanov.
