Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s Sam Rosenthal recorded this collaboration with his Projekt label’s electronic space music artists to commemorate the centennial of Timothy Leary’s birth. The album celebrates a pioneer of consciousness expansion using his own words accompanied by international artists exploring those same realms via their music.
Rosenthal works with Steve Roach, Erik Wollo, Mark Seelig, Forrest Fang, and others; and recorded Timothy Leary trip narrations from:
Amber Case, cyborg anthropologist and author
Alex Cox, director of Repo Man and Sid & Nancy
Lee Ranaldo, founding member and guitarist of Sonic Youth
Reggie Watts, bandleader on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden
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
