Why have you selected just "Mosaic" for your virtual show?
The virtual show of my Tarot images is very short, but does have a touch of the hypnotic and if it were of longer duration it would, no doubt, have effect in moving the mind to a different level. In the light of what has been so far said, it would be of no surprise to hear that the music I should chose for this project was selected with some deliberation.
As with specific archetypal visual imagery, certain music, also has the same power to transport the listener, and facilitate the opening of the doors of mind into the same inner space. Third Ear Band created such music. I sat in a darkened room with the show on the screen and dropped a few pieces into the timeline, playing back with the visuals to determine the effect. There was no doubt that 'Mosaic' was the one for it. I guess it is no accident that the musicians who created the piece, and myself, were/are possessed of pagan sensibilities, for it seems to me that our aims, though working in different genres, share a harmony of intent. The result of the marriage of their music and my visuals is a happy and magickal one, and I do not feel any other music would have done".
What are the qualities of 'Mosaic' you feel are so perfect for your project?
