35-year-old Portland-based Projekt Records is home to Steve Roach, Erik Wollo, Black Tape For A Blue Girl, LYCIA and Voltaire. The label's two-genre approach covers both the electronic/ambient and goth/darkwave realms. With over 75 Steve Roach titles on the label, Projekt is the home for his Grammy-nominated new releases as well as his catalog classics. Steve's 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. Voltaire's debut The Devil's Bris remains a classic of the genre, and a video from the follow-up Almost Human gets nearly 1million plays a month on youTube. Projekt's artists streamed over 70 million tracks in 2018, and the label's digital side continues to grow. Surviving throughout the decades where so many other labels perished, Projekt continues to nurture the careers of the label's biggest acts.

Sam Rosenthal with Nick Shadow & Steve Roach
The Gesture of History (CD/LP)
Limited edition of 300 LPs / 800 CDs

Viola-based textural ambient drift from Sam of Black Tape For A Blue Girl. Introspective passages where the organic texture and emotions of the viola play out over an atmosphere of engulfing mournful beauty. Delicate strings float upon shimmering, forever changing expressionistic backgrounds of processed viola, synth, and harmonium -- profoundly sensitive and deeply moving. The modernist ambient compositions balance on the precipice looking back in moments of reflection and rumination while delicately holding the future in our hands.

Unto Ashes: Pretty haunted things (CD)
Limited edition of 500

Unto Ashes conjures a stirring and captivating album, simultaneously beautiful and unsettling. Pretty haunted things - their eleventh Projekt release in a career stretching two decades - effortlessly spans the ages from a dark and medieval flair to modern apocalyptic gothic-folk. Recorded almost entirely in an octagonal Victorian parlor room, bewitched by centuries-old traditions, the songs of reflective solemnity are swathed in dramatic, soaring choruses executed by Ericah Hagle, Michael Laird, and Bret Helm (of Audra).

Alio Die & Lorenzo Montana: The Threshold of Beauty (CD)
Limited edition of 500

On their second collaboration, these cult Italian musicians create an hour of meditative dream-infused soundscapes and beatless mystical textures. Following their 2015 Projekt album Holographic Codex, Alio Die (with 65 releases) and Lorenzo Montana (with 17 releases) come together for six tracks of deep ambient soundscaping, intersecting a potent alchemical brew of pure organic sounds. Undeniably calming and moving, the breathing slows, the mind quiets and opens. As the introspective ambience washes over the listener, a naturalistic dronescape unfolds with alluring aural scenarios of evolving, intimate sounds.

LYCIA: A Line That Connects (CD/2LP)

Lycia's A Line That Connects returns on CD (and for the first time on 2LP) on Projekt Records. Originally released in the summer of 2015, ALTC's first pressing of 500 quickly sold out. Haunting, bleak, moody and atmospheric, their 10th album is a heavy record with shifting sonics and a full-band sound thanks to a return to the classic mid-90s Lycia lineup. Lycia's mix of post-punk bleakness and doomy darkness is an engaging, fascinating listen.

Forrest Fang: The Fata Morgana Dream(CD)

Over the course of seventeen solo albums and three-plus decades, ambient/electronic musician Forrest Fang has cultivated his surrealist blend of electronically-transformed ethnic instruments and minimalist aural environments. Gently layered drones combine with slow-moving piano themes, violin, as well as subtle Eastern string, wind, and percussive elements. On The Fata Morgana Dream, Fang's pieces reflect his uniquely personal universe of influences, mysterious objects and undefined phenomena that emerge from the subconscious.

Erik Wollo: : Infinite Moments(CD)

After nearly four decades and 40 albums of ambient electronics, veteran Norwegian composer Erik Wollo takes a different approach -- there are no synthesizers! Infinite Moments is performed entirely on electric guitars processed with the diffused sustain of the EBow and layered note structures of harmonizers. No rhythms, only long, vast and engaging soundscapes. Minimal, extended and infinite in its essence, the album is a meditative inward journey of stillness and reflection -- an emotional mapping of the mind, beautifully weightless and contemplative.

Steve Roach: Mercurius (CD)

Mercurius is a resplendent sonic expression on the psychology and spirituality of impermanence and finding comfort in the liminal spaces of the in-between. Composed in four movements, the album is a soulful resonation upon the ineffable. Grammy nominated in 2018, Steve Roach is a leading American pioneer in the evolution of ambient/electronic music. Within Mercurius' ebb and flow, Roach's singular evolving language of contemplative soundworlds arrives at a place of deeper refinement.

black tape for a blue girl: To touch the milky way (CD/LP)

Evocative, powerful and introspective, the band's 12th studio album expands upon their sweeping Art Rock aesthetic. Songwriter/bandleader Sam Rosenthal's electro-acoustic atmospherics and foreboding, engaging lyricism carries them into their 33rd year with an album encompassing powerful personal and transpersonal themes. Captivating vocals from Danielle and Michael refresh the band's pioneering musical sentiments. "Reconnect with and reflect on the larger legacy of Black Tape For A Blue Girl's emotive whirlwind." - IDie:YouDie

Lycia: In Flickers (CD/LP)

American darkwave/atmospheric act LYCIA returns to Projekt for the 4th release of their second era. In Flickers is an emotionally charged album of deeply personal darkwave/post-rock. The ten tracks are intriguing meditations on forgotten paths, corrupted hopes, and faint memories of beauty. The open-ended melancholy captures a cold and desolate spirit, a sound as somber as the lyrics themselves. PITCHFORK: "Arizona's LYCIA has been pioneers of darkwave... a noteworthy and boundary-pushing act."

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.
