Memory of a Cosmic Heart

$ 5.00

Feel the Love of an Open Heart. Memory of a Cosmic Heart is a synergy of musicians, vocalists, opera singers, choir, DJ, and artists working together to bring a musical odyssey of this cosmic heart to life. We are nearly finished mixing the album and are asking all of our fans and patrons to support this project by pre-ordering the limited edition album, purchasing the numerous rewards, or become a sponsor, and receive credit on the album, illuminated manuscript, and theatrical concert.

PURPOSE: "Memory of a Cosmic Heart" is made up of three parts- it is an album of music, an illuminated manuscript, and a theatrical performance, designed to awaken the neural connections in the heart, sending an electromagnetic wave of love to hearts around the planet. The focus of this Go Fund Me campaign is to offer pre-orders of the music and illuminated manuscript.

STORY: A daughter of the Sun falls to earth and is born a human. Her name is Memory. A fiery soul growing up in a fleshy garment is challenging, yet she does her best to fit in, sharing her gifts and heart, until visions of her celestial home begin to appear. I am creating an illuminated manuscript of the story and songs.

MUSIC: It is cinematic, operatic, new age, ambient, with world and electronic accents. The talent on the album is a synergistic dream.

CONCERT: After the music and book are produced, then a multi-media concert will be the final incarnation of the project.

We are offering special limited edition versions of:

(album cover art may change)

200 vinyl LPs, with full color jacket, printed protective inner sleeve , and hand pressed foil numbering. Some of these LPs will be paired with limited edition prints and artwork! See the Rewards for details. There is something authentic about the tangible reality of records. Pulling an album from its jacket, then taking it out of its sleeve, placing it on the turntable and watching the needle hit the grooves is relaxing, and fulfilling. It almost feels like a sacred ritual.

  (CD cover art may change)

300 CDs within a full color Eco Digipak. Will come with a booklet of lyrics and esoterica. Some of these are available with artwork!
                                      
Digital Downloads are available for only $15.

100 Illuminated Manuscripts, 9"x9" hard cover, full color, numbered and signed.  I am writing and creating the art for this story of a daughter of the sun who falls to earth and is born as a human. She grows up learning the ways of earth, sharing the power of her cosmic heart, until memories reveal the origins of her solar home. The pages will be filled with fascinating esoterica on astronomy, geology, astrophysics, metaphysics, and alchemy.

→ TELL ME MORE

Together with my writing partner Rob Jacobs we have been developing this musical odyssey of the heart for over ten years. From the beginning our desire was to compose songs that expressed a love lifting vibration, evoking feelings of wellbeing and peace. Patience and time allowed the music to evolve, become more nuanced, more beautiful, ultimately transcending our initial conception. 

Final recording and production are in the works now, with a launch of the Vinyl and CD and Illuminated Manuscript scheduled for late 2018.

→ THE HEART OF IT

The heart is revered in all cultures as a symbol for love, 
courage, and compassion. It represents the ambition of the soul, connecting our physical evolution to our spiritual revolution. Like a multi-faceted gem the heart's physical attributes are many.

✧ The heart is the first organ to form in the body. It is the organizing factor for physical formation, including brain formation. The heart contains extensive brain-like neural matter and has recently been classified as a gland because it produces its own hormone. The heart not only puts out its own balancing and regulating hormones, but also instantaneously communicates electromagnetic and chemical information to the rest of the body and to other bodies near it.

✧ Research has shown that the heart is the most powerful generator of electromagnetic energy in the human body. The electromagnetic energy of the heart not only envelops every cell of the human body, but also extends out in all directions in the space around us. The heart’s electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain. 

✧ Our cardiac field touches those within 8-10 feet of where we are positioned (and perhaps in more subtle ways at greater distances). One person’s heart signal can effect another’s brainwaves, and heart-brain synchronization can occur between two people when they interact.

✧ On microcosmic/macrocosmic levels we are physically,  energetically, made of stardust, connecting us intrinsically to the cosmos. The rhythm of the heart reflects the tides of the oceans, the pulse of quasars, the motion of the universe, and the dance of God. 

"We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff." - Carl Sagan

→ VISION

We are rolling this production out in two phases: PHASE 1. Produce a limited edition vinyl record, limited edition CD along with digital downloads. Making an album of this caliber is expensive. Everyone is being compensated for their time and talent, this includes the musicians, studio engineers, mixing and mastering engineers, manufacturing the vinyl record, and CD. PHASE 1a. The story will be made into a limited edition illuminated manuscript. Equal parts story book, astronomy, geology, astrophysics, metaphysics, and alchemical inquiry- this is an illustrated adventure of the mind and spirit. PHASE 2. Lastly, a multi-media concert will be the grand finale, and can happen after the first phase is successful.

---✧✦ YOU ✦✧---

By participating in this funding campaign you will:

✦ 1. Be part of the collective, to make this music a reality, so it can help us send an electromagnetic wave of love to the planet. Also, you will own the only limited edition Vinyl and CD versions of this music.

✦ 2. You will help fund the creation of the illuminated manuscript that tells a tale of our cosmic origins, and more.

✦ 3. Set the stage for the concert. After so many years of nurturing and developing this project it becomes like a long pregnancy. Now this Cosmic Heart is ready to be born! With you, we can make this happen, with your support we can make Memory of a Cosmic Heart a reality.
