the ProjektList 🚀 2-15-23
From Projekt’s Sam Rosenthal. Hi all….. middle of February already, wow! This year is coming on fast! Lots of new Projekt musicfor you to enjoy…so much to talk about…
☀️ This is your last call for a name-your-price download on Amongst Jungles, the recent collaboration between Jarguna and Nicola Serena. Grab it during these final days.Tango Mango writes on Bandcamp: “It’s chilled and intricate at the same time. Have to say, Vegetal Sculpture took me way back to Gong/Hillage albums. Bless their socks.” Styles: Electronic, ambient, space music. Dave Aftandilian writes on Bandcamp: “Fascinating ambient visions of a future when the worlds of nature and society become so intertwined that the borders between them disappear. There is some darkness here: shadowed places with unknown, unsavory denizens. But mostly the feeling is exploratory, hopeful, and transformative: warm tears of rain glossing a leaf, dropping to the dirty pavement, then moistening a seed in a crack that becomes a green shoot shining amongst the gray.”
☀️ Last weekend’s Hearts of Space radio show included four tracks from Erik Wøllo’s new album the Shape of Time, as well as a track from Blue Radiance. HOS has an Online subscription thingie.

☀️ Wonderful review of Deepspace’s The Blue Dunes at Exposé Online. “…uniformly excellent, tapping into that subconscious wonderworld of sound that guides the listener along on an explorative floating ambient journey. The Blue Dunes represents a glacial moving sonic sculpture that will quite intentionally alter the listener’s mood and consciousness.”
☀️Erik Wøllo’s the Shape Of Time in Darkroom magazine, Italy
☀️ Great review of Byron Metcalf & Shane Morris’s Ancestral Resonance at Exposé Online. “…dreamy and quixotic, each of the eight long tracks offering a shadowy path through the dark moonlit night, with echoes of mysticism and exotic power that echo primal and hypnotic emotions from deep in the soul. Every additional spin offers further insights into a hidden secret world known only to our distant ancestors. A brilliant and epic journey through the past.”
