Projekt’s Sam Rosenthal collaborates with the label’s electronic artists on Tim, where are you now? Digipak with 6-page insert with lovely artwork commissioned just for this release. Digital name-your-price at Bandcamp.



It’s the centennial of Timothy Leary’s birth; to commemorate, Projekt Records founder Sam Rosenthal recorded Tim, where are you now? an electronic space music/art rock collaboration. The album celebrates a pioneer of consciousness expansion using his own words accompanied by international artists exploring those same realms via their music.


Rosenthal collaborated with Projekt space music artists Steve Roach, Erik Wollo, Mark Seelig, Forrest Fang, and others, and recorded Timothy Leary trip narrations from Alex Cox (director of Repo Man and Sid & Nancy), Reggie Watts (bandleader on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden), Lee Ranaldo (of Sonic Youth) and others.


With the permission and encouragement of Timothy Leary’s son Zach and the Leary estate, the album’s 13 tracks contain 4 spoken word “trips” with text excerpted and cut-up from Tim’s first LSD and DMT experiences chronicled in his 1968 book High Priest.


As founder of 37-year-old Portland-based Projekt Records, Rosenthal helms the label as well as his band Black Tape For A Blue Girl (with 12 albums in the gothic, ambient & art rock genres). Synthesist, songwriter, lyricist and main collaborator, he’s released 8 albums of his music in the last half-decade. For Tim, where are you now? Rosenthal collected musical textures & sources from Projekt label electronic artists, sonically painting with their colors and his ethereal electronics to create the concept album he envisioned.


“Tim was a chieftain. He stomped on the terra,
and he left his elegant hoof prints on all our lives.”
— Hunter S. Thompson



longer version of bio

October 22 would be Timothy Leary’s 100th birthday; to commemorate, Sam Rosenthal recorded Tim, where are you now? an electronic space music/art rock collaboration. The album celebrates a pioneer of consciousness expansion using his own words accompanied by international artists exploring those same realms via their music.


With the permission and encouragement of Timothy Leary’s son Zach and the Leary estate, the album’s 13 tracks contain 4 spoken word “trips” with text excerpted and cut-up from Tim’s first LSD and DMT experiences chronicled in his 1968 book High Priest. These voice+electronics segments serve as interstitial anchor trips that arise out of the music now and again.


As founder of 37-year-old Projekt Records, Rosenthal helms the label as well as his band Black Tape For A Blue Girl (with 12 albums in the gothic, ambient & art rock genres). Synthesist, songwriter, lyricist and main collaborator, he’s released 8 albums of his music in the last half-decade. For Tim, where are you now? Rosenthal collected musical textures and sources from Projekt-label artists, sonically painting with their colors and his ethereal electronics to create the concept album he envisioned. Expansive then inward-looking, the tracks alternate between tension and calming electronic atmospherics.


Featuring the music of: Sam Rosenthal (Black Tape For a Blue Girl), Steve Roach, Erik Wøllo, Mark Seelig, Forrest Fang, Byron Metcalf, Henrik Meierkord, Brian Parnham, theAdelaidean, Ryan Lum & Anji Bee (Love Spirals), Brian Viglione (The Dresden Dolls), Martin Bowes (Attrition), Jarguna, Nathan Youngblood, Mike VanPortfleet (Lycia)


It’s high time to celebrate Leary’s cultural contributions. He’s a visionary who spent his life thinking about the mind, not just altering it but using it to its fullest potential to better tune into the universe. His influence remains so extensive and complex that 53 years after popularizing his catchphrase “turn on, tune in, drop out” inner exploration continues to be inspired by his work.


“Tim was a chieftain. He stomped on the terra,
and he left his elegant hoof prints on all our lives.”
— Hunter S. Thompson

In Leary’s 1996 Washington Post obituary, Ralph Metzner, who worked with Leary as a graduate student at Harvard University in the 1960s, marveled at his old friend’s ability to appeal to a new generation, and said Leary would be appreciated by history. “It hasn’t been about drugs per se all along,” he said. “It’s been about human consciousness — how you can expand it, how to use the brain in a creative way, to enhance human potential, to exist. He acknowledged everyone’s inherent creativity.”
