Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds


Drink in this fabulous psychedelic experience of sound and vision in Symbiose. The video montage is brilliant and beautiful, consisting of layers of colorized B&W vintage film. The music is also a montage of the two composers, comprising both atonal-industrial sounds and lyrical electronic sounds, with searing guitar flying overhead. Live drumming is reborn in this piece–you know its not a drum machine, nor computer programming. It’s all too human, raw and real. Symbiose has my vote as the Buddhist Album of the Month

Note: the first few seconds of the video have no sound; but they are also the most beautiful. I love the use of found films from science.
