33-year-old Portland-based Projekt Records is home to Steve Roach, Erik Wollo, Black Tape For A Blue Girl and Voltaire. The label's two-genre approach covers both the electronic/ambient and goth/darkwave realms. With over 50 Steve Roach titles on the label, Projekt is the home for his new albums as well as his catalog classics. His releases include 1984's groundbreaking floating ambient Structures from Silence, which Yoga Journal calls one of the "...top ten all time releases for Yoga." Other Roach milestones include Quiet Music, Dreamtime Return and the 4-CD Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces. Projekt's noteworthy and boundary-pushing darkwave acts established the label in the 90's as the American counterpart to England's famed 4AD. Surviving throughout the decades where so many other labels perished, Projekt continues to bring new artists to the fore while nurturing the careers of the label's biggest acts. Look forward to new releases in 2017 from Roach, Wollo, BlackTape and Voltaire. On CD as well as cassette.

LYCIA: A Day in the Stark Corner (re-release)

For the first time in a decade, Lycia's 1993 album A Day in the Stark Corner is back in print, now remastered with a bonus out-take from the original sessions. On the follow-up to Ionia, Mike Van Portfleet continues his pursuit of an apocalyptic landscape of extremes in which rich gothic guitars and intense rhythms divulge a world of bleak desperation; with that unmistakeable unnerving whispered voice. Peter Steele of Type-O Negative said about Stark Corner: "Such simple hypnotic beats, everything is drowned in reverb. Yet, the emotion comes through so loud and clear. It's just devastating, as beautiful as it is devastating."

Steve Roach: Molecules of Motion

On his first studio album since his recent Grammy nomination, Roach calls upon an expansive 35-year legacy at the forefront of electronic music creation. Molecules of Motion is a masterful album with roots in the Berlin School and a foot in the transcendent unknown of the future flowing into now. The album is a sonic marvel: shimmering, pulsing, moving, emotional and engaging. A tapestry of sequencer-spun patterns floats upon an atmosphere of lush emotive textures alive with a vibrant, life-affirming glow. These four pieces can best be described as meditations upon elegant motion and electro-sensual space.

Erik Wollo: Threshold Point
Limited edition of 500

Norwegian sound-artist Erik Wollo's 23rd album delivers a collection of carefully crafted compositions: introspective, yet melodic electronic music. It is pensive and reflective upon passing and transition; several sequencer-driven pieces contrast with surrounding dreamlike ambient soundscapes. Wollo's mood is contemplative and expressively intense, capturing an authentic moment in time.

Aurelio Voltaire: Almost Human (re-release)

Back in Print for 2018 in new packaging. 4-panel digipak includes 8-page lyric booklet. "The dark angel is back!!" (Sanctuary Magazine). On his year-2000 second album, "Voltaire takes a positively Goth subject matter approach, but the music and feel of the songs are decidedly cabaret / goth cabaret." (Lexicon Magazine) "Almost Human is clearly the work of a clever but twisted mind stuck somewhere between pop genius and 18th Century lunatic minstrel." (Meltdown, UK) "Sort of like Morrissey, given a string quartet & cross bred with a bitter gothy version of Weird Al Yankovich, right down to the polka." (Dark Entries webzine)

Forrest Fang: Scenes from a Ghost Train
Limited edition of 500

Spanning sixteen solo albums over three decades, Forrest Fang's electronic creations are a surrealist blend of processed ethnic instruments and minimalist, ambient soundscapes. He combines these elements "into a fusion that resists the stereotype of the term," KQED's Ned Raggett writes. "Fang's work creates an enveloping flow of rich sound and understated experimentation. It doesn't sound like one specific style, nor a mix of them all at once - but something distinctly his own."

After six solo electronic/ambient albums and his 2016 collaborations with Steve Roach (Biosonic and Second Nature, Projekt) Logan's new album blends unusual electronic and acoustic sources, terraforming bright, melodic molten sound with an enraptured experience of the natural world. Vibrant electronic performances, detailed tone-sculpting, processed natural sounds (captures from Mozambique, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Hungarian village life and the UK's shores), and unusual acoustic instruments inform a musical world of exotic majesty and boundless adventure.

Aurelio Voltaire: Heart-Shaped Wound

Dark cabaret artist Aurelio Voltaire returns to Projekt Records for a passionate collection of songs about love gained and love lost. His 11th studio album resulted from a tumultuous three-month relationship; in between his hectic touring schedule Voltaire found himself writing heart-wrenching songs brimming with anguish, regret and yearning. With a reputation for macabre, tongue-in-cheek songs, every once in a while someone comes along and breaks his heart, and the result is an album of genre-defying musical storytelling. Often sarcastic, sometimes serious, always uniquely... Voltaire.

LYCIA: IONIA
Limited edition of 500

Back in print for the first time in a decade, digitally remastered by Martin Bowes (Attrition). Released in 1991, Ionia was Lycia's debut on Projekt. With its brilliant blending of intense cascading guitar, droning synths and deep, whispered vocals, the release quickly found a home with fans of independent, underground goth as well as spacey ambient music. On this influential and much-admired album, songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Mike VanPortfleet speaks to a melancholy that?s intentionally left open-ended. Darkly beautiful, flooded with a sense of loss, isolation and mystery, Ionia is devastating yet hopeful. Breathtaking and bewitching, the striking atmospherics and yearning lyrics create an achingly entrancing panorama of bittersweet longing.

Mark Seelig ~ Sam Rosenthal: Journey to Aktehi
Limited edition of 300

Rosenthal: Songwriter and keyboardist from the band Black Tape For A Blue Girl
Seelig: Solo artist, transpersonal psychotherapist, and shamanic practitioner
On the border between electronic spacemusic and organic indigenous music, this release is an exhilarating and ecstatic exploration of the subjective land of Aktehi. The primary ingredients in the hallucinogenic soundscapes are Seelig's Bansuri flute and harmonic chanting. Rosenthal's subtle electronics, processing and production creates space for the mind-expanding travel akin to an altered state of consciousness. "This album is alarmingly beautiful and unreal. As if the musicians have been given notes by something we don't see in the physical realm." - Matt Rowe, MusicTap

Cinematic's nearly fifty minutes of melodic mesmerizing electronic music is shimmeringly sweeping and emotionally engaging. The eight song collection remixes and blends previously unreleased material (from 1998 through 2003) created as soundtracks for video, documentary film and multimedia. These are soundscapes created to complement a story or an event, yet still possess their own self-containing inner life. Wollo?s signature use of shining, consonant chord structures, tender melodic phrasing, and masterful sound design give Cinematic its adventurous and vibrant character.

Steve Roach: Long Thoughts

Ambient music master Steve Roach's first long-form electronic release on Projekt since 2012. This 73-minute sanctuary provides solace: a soul-renewing immersion in the deeper end of the self-reflection pool. Experienced in looped infinite playback mode, the album creates a sense of constant, sustained nourishment to realign, reset, and soften the edges of modern life's quantized thought process. Roach's pioneering approach to the soundscape-drone-ambient artform breathes and sighs with an organic, rich harmonic tapestry of?chordal interweave within deep resonance and reflection.
