Art is Life

“We work in the dark – we do what we can – we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion, and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.” – Henry James

Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride

It has been three years since we recorded Life In Suspension and two years since we launched the Kickstarter to fund the production. Something akin to Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, it is hard to believe that this 3 year epic is winding to a close and at last we are ready to begin the next creation. In celebration, a special re-release of the digital album with new bonus items, Double Dare and a desktop version of the LIS painting. Double Dare was tracked at the same time as the EP but was intended for a Bauhaus tribute album that never got made. Now it joins the other tunes and I believe all is in its proper place. Happy Year of the Horse and away we go!

Fourculture Feature

ATD_0156_3_crop

Very thrilled to announce my upcoming feature in Fourculture. This is the first interview of its kind and I reveal as much as possible about the roots of the expression known as The Seraphim Rising, where it has been, where it is going and what happens along the way. 2014 is looking to be a quite remarkable time in the evolution of this project and we are most pleased that the folks at Fourculture have given us the space to share this piece of the story.

Til Morning I Wake

I have seen the end
I have seen the End
I have seen the beginning
I have witnessed time cease its repeating
And become One
And become one

The most amazing feeling
The wisdom of all the ages
Come together
Come Together
There is nothing to be afraid of
