On January 12, 2020 we have a massive astrological conjunction, all organized around the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto, which were conjunct last in 1982. In other words, this is a major cycle. But, in addition, the coincidence in the conjunction of other planets on that day is quite remarkable. In this essay i would like to explore some of the possible ramifications of this conjunction, and how to get the most out of it , both individually and as a collective. Talk about a fateful day!Click here to read: Saturn conjunct Pluto: 2020 Vision: the Great Awakening gets Real

"Herein an attempt will be made to explain the Game and how to play it, with special emphasis on approaching the Game through the musical part of it. But we will eventually uncover many linked nuances to most, if not all, of the sacred arts and sciences. Let us imagine that we can actually invite Magister Ludi, the Master of the Game, here to explain and transmit it to us, even on a very practical level."Click here to read "The Secret Game of Music"

A little song fresh from the oven that expresses our feelings with respect to the plan to impose another paper plant in Uruguay. follow the link in the description on Youtube for more info. By the way, there is no English translation for the word "papelón". Literally it means a big piece of paper, but a papelón is slang for a serious blunder, a colossal mistake, which is often made with everyone watching, like on stage. This video features some of our lovely heyokah trickster spirits from the neighborhood.
Another look at the Fractal Rhythm Generator with Ableton Live, this time focusing on drum and bass / jungle grooves. I also discuss more of the basics of the fractal rhythm concept, the 4/4 conspiracy, passing continuum, the duality of odd and even, and how Fractal Rhythm Theory can enhance creativity, originality, and musical intelligence.
Our latest journey through the looking glass, Aladna Mandala is a compositional étude based on the palindromic rhythms of Fractal Rhythm Theory.

As the world of music is changing very quickly, it is really up for grabs how musicians are to continue making a living. We are opting to take a stand for our own music and direction, rather than to bow to commercial demands. We feel that if someone has it very clear what their unique path is, it is their responsibility to follow it, however many obstacles may be in the way. When you find what it is that is yours and yours alone to do, if you don't do it, it won't get done. We have created a Patreon page just in case anyone feels moved to support us in our direction. We are entirely home-made, we have no corporate backing whatsoever. We hope you enjoy what we are offering, and will consider even a small monthly pledge to help us along.
