Projekt and Black tape for a blue girls founder Sam Rosenthal had his musical beginnings in electronic music before there were genre names like electronica. Back in 1986 without sequencers, samplers, or MIDI for stringing together computers and keyboards Rosenthal was experimenting with the creation of instrumental music synchronously warm and ominous. Playing with the shape of sounds in a totally hands-on manner, Rosenthal pioneered a style close to the post-prog work of Tangerine Dream and Brian Eno.
* Originally recorded in 1986, simultaneous with the rope, black tape
for a blue girls debut.
Dave of Lexicon Magazine writes: "This is not synthpop, although it is entirely synthetic, nor is it strictly goth or 4AD, although it does have elements of both. It recalls Philip Glass and has echoes of This Mortal Coils instrumental passages."
Sam comments: "This cd represents the sort of hidden side of my music, where I can explore through electronic sounds rather than focusing on the words and lyrics. Im actually quite pleased that people who only know of my work with black tape are giving me such positive feedback on this release. It has been dormant for so long and it is nice to see that people appreciate it all these years later."
