This is Sam Rosenthal from Black Tape For A Blue Girl and you’re listening to a track from THE GESTURE OF HISTORY. It’s an instrumental collaboration album with violist Nick Shadow and synthesist Steve Roach.

I'm crowdfunding on Kickstarter where you can get involved to help create the CD and LP. Like when you donate to PBS, you’re contributing towards something you believe in. And you’re becoming a patron of the art. I really appreciate that many of you are going to do that. Thank you so much.

Your contributions allow this independent, fan-funded album to see the light of day.

THE GESTURE OF HISTORY draws upon 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.
