Music

Driving back home late Saturday night after a class in London… tuning into some random station I found these monster beats thumping out of the radio. It went on for some 25 minutes before someone spoke. The soundscape this guy was pumping was just incredible: a masterpiece for altered states, brilliantly designed to take my brain through wave after wave of ecstatic trance. If only I’d been able to dance! I’d heard stuff like that in clubs but never this good. We’re getting more skilled at the art of this kind of music. What a fabulous use of computers, to get ourselves so deeply high. What an extraordinary species we are.
Much of indigenous cultures’ music is based around percussion and designed for the same purpose. Then our culture took this long departure away from the drum into melody, with lots of very heart-centred music. Now we have come full circle with this whole genre that took off from the rave scene in the ’90s once we had the technology to do it, that’s more about the mind rooted in the moving body. You just gotta dance to that stuff.
I heard the pulse of the world inside this guy’s beats last night. The world is in chaos, and chaos is orgasm. We’re emerging into this massive, tumultuous orgasm on a psychic level that’s been growing for decades now, a planet-wide collective howling of agony and ecstasy in awakening, and it’s artists and young people leading the way.

I could hear billions of voices crying out, a vast moving together of consciousness that is gathering momentum as the years go by to become the most enormous tsunami the world has ever seen. This kind of music is just part of it, but it’s a big part I think, and a fascinating one. As we all know, time spent on computers gets us so into our heads, but then we’re using them to create this art that gets us, with the participation of the moving body, out of the head and into the deep mind, the whole mind, whose essential nature is to go through wave after wave of shattering ecstasy.
Everything has it’s shadow, and you only have to turn on to the mass media to see the shadow of chaos. But on levels that the news finds hard to reach, there’s something incredible happening. Something brilliant, electric, vast and unprecedented.
The eye of the storm is inside every one of us. Stay centred. Stay real and grounded. Open your heart and let yourself be emotional. Let your head go. Centred in the eye of the storm we don’t get thrown out and mashed. We get taken into God exploding through every cell in constant simultaneous creation and destruction.
Dance is where it’s at. The body is the key. The time is now. Stay tuned.
