Omar Raafat – “The Traveler”
“The type of music I produce is referred to as contemporary classical or neo-classical. It’s like a modern take on classical music, and makes use of classical music instrumentation. We’re using a string quartet and traditional instruments that you’d find in orchestras or chamber music. There’s a bit of a modern touch to it by bringing in electronics and instruments that are perhaps more folk-oriented or pop-oriented.” –Omar Raafat
Darren Austin Hall – “King of the Heart: Guided Archetypal Meditations”
“The archetypes are the hard-wiring, the bedrock of our consciousness itself or as Rod Boothroyd calls them, our ‘primal genetic patterns’. The archetypes represent transpersonal psychological elements because they are within us all. It is my intention that these 4 meditations, including a bonus meditation which takes you through a complete journey through all of the archetypes, will offer themselves as profound tools to help us cultivate mastery in our lives and a sense of true, virtuous power.” –Darren Austin Hall
