ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Filling the conscious mind with ideal conceptions is a characteristic of Western theosophy, but not the confrontation with the shadow and the world of darkness. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular." ~ Carl Gustav Jung, The Philosophical Tree, Collected Works 13: Alchemical Studies

Inspired by the writings of Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist Carl Gustav Jung, this release is my fifth in a series of conceptual albums in the ethnic fusion, meditation, and spiritual music genres, featuring MIDI bass guitar & MIDI bass pedals.

A string section via analog synthesizer was added to form a sound that blends elements of Baroque chamber music, film/soundtrack, new age, and symphonic classical with meditation music to help "[...] kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being".

This introspective journey is intentionally 180 degrees out of phase with most meditation and spiritual music that focuses on accepting, moving towards, and seeking "the light", in the false hope that an individual's "dark" and "negative" aspects, traits, and qualities can simply be avoided or somehow transcended.

Like Jung, I firmly believe that no self-exploration can be an honest one without addressing one's desires, fears, impulses, instincts, perversions, repressed ideas, weaknesses, etc., and integrating them to achieve balance, harmony, and wholeness within.
