Nova & Sam's collaboration goes to deep space with StellarPurrs!

Genres: Meditation, relaxation, ASMR, healing, new age

Cat purrs relax and stimulate the brain through their rhythmic repetitions. On their second collaboration, Nova Cat and Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s Sam Rosenthal take the purrs to deep space. The first track is Nova’s raspy purr on its own, the ideal accompaniment to sleep, study and healing work. With close-miking recordings and subtle harmonic EQs, the experience is intimate and comforting. On the lengthy additional tracks (10:30 and 26:34 respectively), the purrs are processed and accompanied by Rosenthal’s deep space ambient music. Sonically, it's a bit like a super-mellow version of his As Lonely As Dave Bowman project with purrs keeping the stellar motor humming.


Nova Cat is a 18-year-old (88 in human years) American Shorthair Tuxedo Cat with a distinctive raspy purr attributed to an health issue. Along with her collaborator Sam Rosenthal, she created these close-miked recordings utilizing subtle harmonic EQ shaped for relaxation and brain stimulation through rhythmic repetitions. Following lengthy negotiations upon the release of her 2022 debut, Nova Cat reluctantly agreed to Rosenthal’s addition of ambient music to two tracks on her sophomore effort.


released June 2, 2023
