Three minute excerpt from Once Around The Sun

Life cycles of the solar system...

Once Around The Sun is the story of the seasons and, correspondingly, the cycles of life - death - and rebirth of Earth's inhabitants. It is a very vibrant, bright and crystalline album and is not so much for relaxation as it is for creative visualisations. It was the second album in the series and still quite experimental. Even though Once Around The Sun is much more melodic than The Great Great Silence, it is still very raw and new.

All around and about us, we live in natural cycles of re-becoming. Our life is not minutes and seconds. It is four seasons, filled with a multitude of days and nights.... always returning, in essence, a little wiser and a little greater, the same yet changed.. We live in the body of the Sun and are guided and governed by It's principles of light, orbit and gravity, divine nurture and love.

These cycles condition our lives and our responses to life and even the endless nature of our re-becoming on this planetary center within It's body. The Sun is the result of a great force from beyond, penetrating this dark space for some burgeoning Divine Purpose over billions of 'years'. Once Around The Sun creates an electric environment in which to reflect on life in this solar system and the energies that wash over us as we spin in endless cycles through time and space.
