"The disc, named In the Interval is a solo recording made up of two pieces, one lasting twenty-two minutes, the second just six. What is the connection to Roy East? Well Roebke’s first track opens with a single resounding low note pluck from his bass, which is then followed by fifty seconds of silence before another single, higher note, and a few scratches and scrabbles appears. There is then another long pause, during which we might here the sounds of the room, the creak of the bass as Roebke leans against it, not much more until the next sounds. This continues, with the gaps between each note, or little cluster of notes and cracks and scrapes getting shorter and shorter until the music is close to a more normal pace. As the track approaches its closing minutes its a busy, scurrying, brittle collection of pushing and pulling, thoroughly expressionistic playing with just a tip of the hat towards jazzier climes."

"Everything you anticipate will happen, does not happen, so rather than listening in on automatic pilot, you're forced to be there with your full attention on the bass, its sound and the silence surrounding it. And I must say, that is an exceptional feat for a solo bass album. Another example that less is more and that lack of repetition is guaranteed to keep you alert."
