Title: Montauk Project
Format: CD
Label: Tesco Organization (@)
[From the press kit] ""Montauk Project," also called the Phoenix Project during some of its phases, was a covert government’s ultra-to-secret electromagnetic mind control and time experiment project that took place during the 1970’s and early 80’s at an abandoned Air Force radar base at the southeast tip of Long Island, New York. GS provides you with the perfect soundtrack to go further into this secret world."

I usually come at this kind of music as an opportunity to create a mood, and it seems to be more effective the less context I give to the piece. Considering its abstract nature less is more when it comes to saying what it all means. GS is attempting to give us a look at mind control presumably from the inside out, that is, from the subject’s point of view. The disk contains what one would expect from the title, lots of electronic noise and tones depicting various states of mind representative to electronic mind control. But since this is music and not a psychological dissertation we ask the question: does it succeed? I would say that it does if this is an attempt at portraying an inner journey effected by outer manipulation.
