Wayne Neverka This music, along with the recitations of Dr. Leary's writing, is a trip indeed! The music is rich and mesmerizing and makes for a mind awakening journey through brain space. Favorite track: under the bright Cuernavaca sky.

rikm Bringing together lush instrumental ambience and spoken word performance, "Tim, Where are you now?" is a fascinating and engaging tribute to Timothy Leary and his experiments, explorations, and adventures.

Highly recommended...

Scott it's interesting to hear how the variety of emotions and musical styles work so well together within the framework of the album's theme. also fun trying to guess which artist contributed what part to the composition. favorite tracks include 2, 3, 4, 8, and 11.

Black Tape For A Blue Girlโ€™s Sam Rosenthal collaborates with his Projekt labelโ€™s electronic space music artists to commemorate the centennial of Timothy Learyโ€™s birth. Digipak includes a 6-page insert with lovely artwork commissioned just for this release.

The album celebrates a pioneer of consciousness expansion using his own words accompanied by international artists exploring those same realms via their music.

Rosenthal collaborated with Projekt space music artists Steve Roach, Erik Wollo, Mark Seelig, Forrest Fang, and others, and recorded Timothy Leary trip narrations from Alex Cox (director of Repo Man and Sid & Nancy), Reggie Watts (bandleader on CBS' The Late Late Show with James Corden), Lee Ranaldo (of Sonic Youth) and others.

With the permission and encouragement of Timothy Learyโ€™s son Zach and the Leary estate, the albumโ€™s 13 tracks contain 4 spoken word โ€œtripsโ€ with text excerpted and cut-up from Timโ€™s first LSD and DMT experiences chronicled in his 1968 book High Priest. These voice+electronics segments serve as interstitial anchor trips that arise out of the music now and again.

As founder of 37-year-old 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, heโ€™s released 8 albums of his music in the last half-decade. For Tim, where are you now? Rosenthal collected musical textures and sources from Projekt-label artists, sonically painting with their colors and his ethereal electronics to create the concept album he envisioned. Expansive then inward-looking, the tracks alternate between tension and calming electronic atmospherics.

Featuring the music of: Sam Rosenthal (Black Tape For a Blue Girl), Steve Roach, Erik Wรธllo, Mark Seelig, Forrest Fang, Byron Metcalf, Henrik Meierkord, Brian Parnham, theAdelaidean, Ryan Lum & Anji Bee (Love Spirals), Brian Viglione (The Dresden Dolls), Martin Bowes (Attrition), Jarguna, Nathan Youngblood, Mike VanPortfleet (Lycia)

Itโ€™s high time to celebrate Learyโ€™s cultural contributions. Heโ€™s a visionary who spent his life thinking about the mind, not just altering it but using it to its fullest potential to better tune into the universe. His influence remains so extensive and complex that 53 years after popularizing his catchphrase โ€œturn on, tune in, drop outโ€ inner exploration continues to be inspired by his work.

โ€œTim was a chieftain. He stomped on the terra,
and he left his elegant hoof prints on all our lives.โ€
โ€” Hunter S. Thompson
