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.

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.

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.

Steve Roach: Spiral Revelation

The sound of life, interconnected and unfurling. Roach's long history and love of analog sequencer-based styles reveals a continuing, evolving wakening within Spiral Revelation's 63 minutes. Using only analog and hardware instruments to focus the mind's ear upon a filigree of intricate patterns woven with a direct hands-on approach, an emotional through-line brings life to these pieces as the unfurling of time's windings connects to the vivid present and illuminates with anticipation a life-affirming future. A masterful expression of an artist who has infused his soul into the art form of electronic music.

    Erik Wollo and Byron Metcalf: Earth Luminous

    Earth Luminous stirs the memory on an outing through luminescent electronic ambient music where the ethereal is anchored and activated by steady, tactile frame drum and percussive patterns. Byron's tight-to-the-rhythmic-grid substratum pulse serves as a conduit to Erik's lush, emotive and expansive atmospheres. These two sonic explorers find a meeting place where vapor trails and glowing man-made cityscapes merge.

    Steve Roach & Robert Logan: Second Nature


    Pushing the boundaries of perception-expanding music, Steve Roach and Robert Logan present two vastly different albums which serve as transmissions of powerful emotion and exploration - a blending of man and machine. Biosonic's elegant futurism and Second Nature's romantic minimalism are distinct, yet intimately linked within subtle, pulsing, body-mind states. The former's darkly ecstatic, deeply-layered, electro-neural atmosphere contrasts with the latter's nuanced, spare, ambient-atmospheric piano tone paintings.

    Stratosphere: Rise
    Limited edition of 300

    Rise, the third Projekt release from Belgian soundsculptor Stratosphere (a.k.a. Ronald Marien), is a world of shimmering drones, engaging post-rock, and quiet passionate ambient. Textura.org's comment on Stratosphere's previous release applies here as well: "Melody is more pronounced on the Stratosphere set, plus the music is less retiring and more assertive. There's an ambient-drone dimension in play for sure, but Marien also works into the release elements of prog and post-rock. ...the variety on display only makes the result more appealing."

    Steve Roach: Emotions Revealed

    A delayed transmission from the early 80s. Discovered serendipitously in 2015, these lost tracks created just prior to the Structures from Silence era represent two then-emerging sides of Steve's artistic muse. "Emotion Revealed" is a mesmerizing, yearning sequencer exploration connected to the German school of electronic music. "Firelight" was his first long-form atmospheric composition of emotional introspection, stillness, silence, and solitude. Two essential touchstones of Steve's sonic origin.
