    With a sentiment of deep humility, we lower our heads upon entering the heart of the Pileta Cave. We are welcomes, just as in the way our forebears have been, into this extraordinary place.

    The constant temperature of 17c sets us in a mood of calm wellbeing propitious for the creation: It is a womb, a protective matrix in which, with a sense of ancestral reliance, we’re invited as pilgrims on a musical journey.

    The Pileta is a temple dedicated to, and with evident symbolism of, the Feminine: by way of these geothermic conditions which evoke the maternal womb; by pictorial representations of the vulval form; and most notably by the initial painting which greets us at the entrance of the cave: that of the Venus (our cover), one of the oldest of such paintings known in Europe.

    There are strong indications of a connection between these paintings which decorate the cave and the acoustic properties brought to life there in the cave while playing music: Archeological research has found fragments of bones encrusted in stalagmitic accretions demonstrating that humans have long since beat upon these natural lithophones, utilizing this sanctuary for over 30,000 years to the purpose of auditory sensation.

    Here we will not be musicians playing music, but individuals played by the music through our instruments of wood, bone and horn… Music in the moment, outside of time; the notes flowing in ceremony as the space awakens and memories flood our sight in the form of mental images.

    On this album we welcome you along on an evocative journey, a peaceful voyage beyond time to bring you to these memories of humanity.

    The Pileta Cave is preserved by the Bullon Family, who have done us the honor of granting access to the sanctuary for these recordings.
