The Shaman's Heart 1
1. Preparation Pulse (8:02)
Although Byron has been working on The Shamans Heart for almost two years, in a very real sense this project represents his entire lifes journey and overriding quest: to develop the ability to live in the world and remain heart-centered to stay connected to ones compassionate core no matter what the circumstances may be. Along with his music, Byron has chosen the shamanic path, the path with heart as don Juan referred to it, as a primary method to accomplish this most challenging and rewarding goal.
The Shamans Heart is a powerful and unique rhythmic and soundworlds trance experience based on the traditional structures of shamanic drumming. The entire journey is built using a collection of buffalo drums, frame drums and rattles, presented as a continuous unfolding rhythmic state starting with lone peyote rattles and eventually evolving into a mandala-like polyrhythmic ecstacy. Fellow traveller, friend and collaborator Steve Roach is also on-board, providing a shapeshifting undercurrent of essential soundworlds and didgeridoo provided to create a balanced sense of support for the intrepid inner traveler. Adding to the experience is the sense that its all occurring in a grounded, ceremonial space through the use of sounds from the natural world. This is unlike any of the solo projects or collaborations from Byron and Steve. A perfect example of the notion that the music is the medicine.
