Steve Roach
2015 Projekt PRO319 – now shipping

Mesmerizing soundworlds from an artist immersed in the sensual realms of electronic/ambient sonic creation. Steve Roach dives further into the deep end of introspective music on this atmospheric set. Focusing on the essential elements of sound, silence, tone, and time-altering forms, the four long-form pieces are a lens to view the molecules of emotion and enhanced perception. Peeling away the surface layers to reveal the subterranean strata beneath, ETHERIC IMPRINTS brings into form a contained sense of stillness and reflection.

Steve Roach
2015 Projekt PRO315 – now shipping

There's a worldwide analog modular synthesizer resurgence in full swing. Pioneering electronic musician Steve Roach taps into the zeitgeist on SKELETON KEYS, a 74-minute album recorded using the Synthesizers.com large format analog modular synthesizer­/sequencer-based system. These are eight emotional and mind-expanding spiraling mandalas-of-sound made from interwoven tapestries of melody, rhythm, tone and musical space.

2015 Projekt PRO320

Echo: a reflection of sound, arriving at the listener some time after the direct sound. Tides: the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of gravitational forces exerted by the Moon, Sun, and rotation of the Earth.

Monolith
Monolith
As Lonely As Dave Bowman
2015 Projekt PRO318

A 73-minute electronic space music album from Projekt's Sam Rosenthal. Unlike Sam's work in Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Dave Bowman is full-on electronic music: droning space, wordless drift with long suspended passages. Covering Bowman's journey to the Monolith near Jupiter, the album touches the edges of isolation and glacial solitude, with a discernible warm human core. MONOLITH's epic expanses, asteroid flybys, serene ambient moments, vast open textures, and warmer hues of sparse remoteness are barren, yet without leaving the listener abandoned. Think of it as drone insulation rather than drone isolation.


Disorientation Flow
Disorientation Flow
Dirk Serries
2015 Projekt PRO316

Serries' second album on Projekt is a suitable follow-up to his warm and welcoming 2014 release, THE ORIGIN REVERSAL. More than a critically-acclaimed re-boot of his classic Vidna Obmana sound, this is ambient music that flows from its discreet origins of sonic purity, washes of harmony, and languid textures. Unfurling with seductive deliberation and orchestrated with just a handful of effects and electric guitar, this album is again fully improvised and recorded in real-time.

May 19, 2013:  Circles & Artifacts at Bandcamp!

After the release of their monumental Ascension of Shadows 3-CD set, in 1999/2000 Steve Roach & Vidna Obmana collaborated by mail on the soundtrack for a limited-edition interactive CD-ROM of photography by Martina Verhoeven. The hour of all-new material never appeared on a standalone CD, but here it is, for the first time, as a digital release. A floating long-from meditative piece, it's a unique ambient environment, immersing the listener in a carefully designed soundworld; rewarding whether just below the threshold of perception, or through active listening. The gradual shifting and drifting is music to get lost in. Though the changes over time are subtle — almost imperceptible — there is growth and change.
