Golden Dawn Arkestra
Golden Dawn Arkestra
Golden Dawn Arkestra hails from a small planet in the
constellation Cygnus, light-years away in the outermost
reaches of the galaxy. The Arkestra conducts experiments
involving space and time travel through the use of sound and
movement. Their followers delight in these rituals; all bear
witnesses to their higher selves and joyously bask in the
eternal light that joins us all as one.
Armed with unique instrumentation that includes, horns,
percussion, synthesizers, vibraphone and bass clarinet,
Golden Dawn Arkestra combines deep grooves with
cinematic textures. The theatric visuals of The Arkestra are
enriched further by appearances from various dancers who,
like the musicians, are adorned in shimmering garments
reminiscent of intergalactic kingdoms of yore. Inspired to
exuberance by ritualistic practices such as processions,
chanting, and the power of the music itself, the audience
falls into spellbound frenzies.
The Golden Dawn Arkestra returns from ions of spacetime
travel to planet Earth bringing you their debut LP Stargazer.
Since the critically acclaimed vinyl EP Golden Dawn Arkestra
has travelled the space ways collecting even more
intergalactic deities to join in their sonic experimentations.
Stargazer brings you a grander more expansive sound that
represents the joy and rapture that Golden Dawn Arkestra
brings to audiences as they continue to spread a message of
ecstatic consciousness.
Recorded & produced by Erik Wofford (Black Angels,
Okkervil River, Octopus Project) in his cathedral of sound on
the banks of the Colorado River, Erik brings his expertise in
psychedelia, analogue sound and reverberations to the
already eclectic vibrations. The ARKESTRA proudly presents
Stargazer a sonic journal of their cosmic explorations in the
hopes that you too may experience the joy of drifting upon
the ever-loving rays of RA.
