Music for star gazers, planetariums and meditation. The Pleiades are a beautiful and brilliant cluster of stars in the constellation of Taurus. I have a large picture of them in my recording studio, and sometimes when I look at this picture, I am inspired to compose music, which is very different from anything I have ever composed or heard before. This album is a collection of these pieces.
The Pleiades are the subject of many ancient legends. For example, the Torajas, a primitive tribe in Indonesia, build saucer shaped temples in remembrance of their ancestors who "came here from the Pleiades in saucer shaped ships a very long time ago." In numerous reports of extraterrestrial encounters from different parts of the world the space beings indicate the Pleiades as their place of origin. For some reason many people feel a strong connection with the Pleiades. Perhaps, as the legends say, we are descendants of Pleiadian cosmonauts who settled here aeons ago before the dawn of history. I dont claim to know this for sure, but I do know that I love the Pleiades and that my "contact" with them through the picture in my studio, seeing them in the sky, and reading ancient legends about them, inspired this album.
