about

Electronic space music from Doppler Shift, the mid-80s collaboration between Walter Holland (Amber Route) and Sam Rosenthal (Black Tape For A Blue Girl & Projekt). In 1986 and 1987 they performed melodic electronic music (synthwave) at four shows in Southern California. This is a recording of a 1987 radio broadcast.

Sam recalls:

When I lived in Florida in the early 80s, I made a fanzine, Alternative Rhythms. I’d discover new bands by reading the reviews in Op Magazine and Sound Choice. One of those bands was Amber Route from Southern California. I struck up a mail-exchange with the band’s vocalist and guitarist/synthesist Walter Holland. I learned he and Richard Watson were professors at Chapman College in Orange, California. Wanting to get the hell out of Florida anyway possible, I somewhat-jokingly asked if they could get me a scholarship. Well, they did! In 1986, I moved to go to school in California.

Walter and I began working on music together, combining tracks from our solo releases and adding a few new ones. Walter named the band Doppler Shift. We performed live in 1987/1988 twice at Chapman and twice on the air at KSBR, at Saddleback Community College. Walter unearthed a cassette recording of the show and transferred it to digital. I added some EQ. It’s live as we performed it. It was cool to hear this show again, 33 years later!

Sam's review: We were pretty good live, weren’t we?! Walter wrote really melodic parts on the guitar & synth, and performed them with lots of emotion. I think some of these versions are better than the album recordings because they have spontaneity. I am surprised I’m as good (not bad) as I am, considering I don’t remember a lot of rehearsal for these shows (maybe we did, and I forgot?)
