I spent my Spring in Tuva with my young son as I have for the last three years. It’s always a beautiful experience playing music with my Tuvan friends and immersing myself in that beautiful and magical place from where sprung the art of Throat singing.

 

 

 

This Summer Festival season with Liberation Movement culminating in the most magical event of my life so far, the total solar eclipse. Nothing has inspired me and moved me more, save witnessing the birth of my beloved son. I keep that most Perfect Circle in my memory. That extra-dimensional moment of glory changed my vibration and has informed me of a new fire burning that rages to the edges of my experience.

 

This year, I had the great pleasure of meeting the great Hans Joachim Roedelius of the experimental electronic German group KLUSTER when he stopped through Portland with my great friend and collaborator, Chandra Shukla (Xambuca). Meeting him was a revelation and we found and immediate kinship as you can see from this photo.

 

In mid November, I found myself on a very spontaneous trip to Amazon Basin of Perú to participate in a series of Ayahuasca ceremonies that profoundly shifted my vibration and outlook of my place in this world. It was one of the most profound, transformative cleansing I’ve ever done. Anytime I embark on a spiritual pilgrimage whether it be to Mexico, Tuva or Joshua Tree, I endeavor to be fully absorbed sonically and energetically by each environment I visit. I like to immerse myself in what each place has to teach me about my own voice filtered through localized environment. Ultimately it is the sounds and emotionally engaging landscapes that inspire those who are in symbiotic connection with these places that inspire them to create the unique frequencies expressed in their folk music. It’s how nature CREATES music by inspiring the locals to sing Nature back to herself in her own tongue. This is a high philosophical pillar of my artistic vision as SORIAH. To not keep static regardless of one’s environment, but to react and even collaborate and flow with the sounds and elements of one’s environment such as wind, bugs, rain, trees, waves ,fire or even concrete.

 

 

 

Star Theater performance of “The Monad” shortly after my return from Perú.

 

 

 

 

I’m pleased to announce my participation on numerous tracks of Thor & Friends’ new album, “The Subversive Nature of Kindness”.
