It takes the Earth 12 months to finish it's journey around the sun
There are 12 astrological signs of the Zodiac.
12 hours to the face of the clock....
And so, in harmony with these concepts...our trip begins.
For the better part of my musical life, and especially over the last 4 years, I've been recording "Progressive / Space Rock Music" projects, inspired by cosmic forces and the psychedelic experience. The Idea of doing an astrological music project has been slowly developing over time.
The resulting music that has been carefully chosen for your trip is comprised of varying textures, moods and styles, reflective of the diversity and wonder in our experience of the star signs.
In January of 2012, I thought it was high time to do something extra special....
Ed Unitsky was the obvious choice as
the Visual Artist for this trip, his stellar vision is widely regarded as uniquely cosmic and spiritual in nature.
Each month, for 2012,
Ed will be weaving the visual aspects of the co-inciding astrological star signs into the Art for each of the releases in the Trip Around The Sun.
The music contained in this series was not so much composed but more facilitated. I was guided by where the music already seemed to want to go... a sort of cosmic channeling if you will. Not at all limiting myself to traditional songwriting, verse / chorous fare, I was trying to convey the musical "sense" of going on a journey to destinations unknown.
So the Trip Around The Sun is underway...thanks for joining us for the ride.
