Vidna Obmana & Sam Rosenthal – Terrace of Memories
CD, Projekt Records, 1992


Terrace of Memories is a collaborative ambient effort between Sam Rosenthal (owner and founder of Projekt Records) and vidnaObmana (aka Dirk Serries).

The five free form compositions on this 42-minute album all breathe a deep and absorbing atmosphere. I’d say it’s a meditative and highly reflective affair where slow-moving, drifting synth washes pass by, evoking a profound melancholic feel altogether. Above all, the somber minimalism of warm ambience, ending with the nicely morphing 17-minute “Of Silent Crossings”, merges the surreal with dreamlike spheres while leaving a certain sense of bliss.

The hypnotic “Terrace of Memories” is a recording best played on dreary, rainy days or late in the evening, leaving space for a bit of personal contemplation while time fades away.
