Wayfarer is a powerful breed of electronic musical sorcery that will take the listener’s imagination on a journey to a realm where dreama nd reality become one.
is the sixth Wayfarer album release and is perhaps, the most experimental album of them all. The common theme throughout the album is the use of distortion, bending, and warping techniques on both the elements of pitch and time in the music. The sounds of different instruments are distorted through pitch shifting, time stretching, and a combination of the two. The distortion techniques are taken to such extremes that one sometimes hears the music as if through a magnifying glass, revealing small microcosms of sound elements. At times, the distortion goes to the macro level and the pitches of melody or sound samples speed up and fly by as if they were taken by the wind.
The fifth Wayfarer album release, once again embarks in a new direction. Spirituality and the exploration of the mysteries of life has always been at the core of Wayfarer music. In this album, Wayfarer explores the art of meditation and one of the common types of meditations, chakra stimulation.
The fourth Wayfarer album is probably the darkest of all the albums. It is inspired by the Toltec concept of the fliers, which are inorganic beings that feed off of the luminous energy of human beings.
The third Wayfarer album is a journey into the abstract and is composed entirely in the text scripting language, Csound.
This second Wayfarer album, Tale Told by an Idiot, released in 2006 asks the question about life that was put to paper by William Shakespeare. Is there meaning to our lives or is it “a tale told by an idiot full of sound a fury signifying nothing?”
Sanctuary, released in 2000, was the first Wayfarer album release. It draws upon new age, world music, experimental electronic, and jazz influences. It is inspired by the inward path of self discovery.
