about

This third collaboration from Steve and Serena was drawn from the desire to create sound and music for the divinatory experience.
To support this intention, divination (the practice of seeking knowledge of the unknown by various natural, psychological and other techniques) was actively engaged in the birthing of the music.

In the process of creating the Temple of the Melting Dawn, a bridge and unique access point to a powerfully lucid and creative space was discovered. Through this experience, this enchanting set of seven sonic offerings manifested.

The divinatory tools for this project, musical instruments of ancient and modern origin, seamlessly blend to invite the listener into a time suspended place where connection to a deep sense of one’s inner wisdom is enhanced. The sound of the lyre, flute, kalimba, harmonium and stone metate magically merge with a gathering of synthesizers and inventive recording techniques. The result of this sonic alchemy reveals an ever changing unfoldment of perception upon each listen.
