The Gesture of History
Sam Rosenthal, Nick Shadow (with Steve Roach)
2019 Projekt PRO358 (CD, Vinyl)
Reviewed by Exposé Online

Viola-based textural ambient drift from Sam Rosenthal of Black Tape For A Blue Girl. 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.
