Journey outside of time through scintillating, ever-changing galaxies and crystalline, infinitely branching neural networks. Winding waves of improvised instrumentals form pulsating patterns both macro and micro. Enter the kaleidoscope of contemplation and deconstruct the frameworks of consciousness.

PRISM was recorded live over the 2017 Good Friday/Easter weekend, a freely improvised stream of shifting perceptions. Each track is a synesthetic exploratory reverberation of a part of Jesus's journey the day of his death as well as the artist's own journey seeking to reconcile the seemingly contradictory forces and narratives embedded in both the conscious and subconscious mind.

Each encounter reflects and refracts a slice of the complex, at times dark, but ultimately beautiful experience of human consciousness; PRISM is a roaming voyage through the intense instinctual search for internal and external empathy and authenticity in a broken, transitory state.
