Divine Particle's Vision

Divine Particle's Vision

The "Divine Particle's Vision" is a ritual that explores the evolution and interconnectedness of phenomena in the universes. It uses sound, sight and ideas to suggest the balanced diversity of cosmic abstraction and intends to encourae creativity and freedom of artistic expression. "Divine Particle's Vision" is aimed at recognizing children's natural inclination towards abstraction, unit, simplicity, truth and love. The CD intends to explore music's relation to the universe, Nature's interconnectedness and abstract balance, and the unity between microcosmic and macrocosmic elements of the universe.
