Oregon Eclipse | Tickets

 

Remember Symbiosis 2016 and the ensuing creation of the Global Eclipse Gathering consortium? The mystery behind that was quickly cleared as news came in of a Total Eclipse passing over Oregon on August 21, 2017. More specifically, Big Summit Prairie (52,000 acres of flatland and a 52-acre lake) in Crook County falls under the Eclipse’s viewing path and will thus play host to our beloved traveling gathering’s next installment.

 

This year’s celebration will now span an entire week (August 17-23). Remember: it is a marathon, not a sprint. To put on a show of such magnitude,Global Eclipse Gathering has enlisted 13 well-known worldly experiences: Bass Coast, Beloved, Envision, Hadra, OMETEOTL, Origin, Noisily, Rainbow Serpent, Re:birth, Sonic Bloom, Symbiosis, Science and Non-Duality, and Universo Paralello.

 

In short, mark August 17-23 off your calendar and get your Eclipse Viewing Glasses ready!

Envision Festival | Lineup | Tickets

 

While most of the U.S. is trudging through a cold winter filled with rain, wind, and snow, Costa Rica continues to thrive in the warm, tropical climates of its eternal summer. Touted as one of the leading transformational festivals in the world, Envision is returning to the beaches of Uvita for its 7th annual celebration of music, art and sacred movement. Envision has certainly grown over the years, yet through careful curation and leadership it maintains the feeling of intimacy and mindfulness that have made the festival what it is today.

Having chased many a sunrise with Dive and Awake as our soundtrack, our surprise when the Sunrise Ambient King Scott Hansen suddenly released Epoch was more than evident. As the title suggest, his fifth album continues the saga of what we’ve come to know from Tycho while adding clear influences from his life. While his previous releases leaned toward electro-pop and shoegaze, Epoch draws on heavier sounds and rougher edges. The drums hit harder, the beats drive longer, the pacing is faster; it all eludes more to a moon-rise sense.

 

The title track and ‘Receiver’ evoke much of what we’d expect to hear from a sunrise in Blackrock City; there’s no doubt his multiple sunrise sets there have influenced their production. Tracks like ‘Source’ and ‘Rings’ draw heavily on the hard hitting and rapid drumming of liquid D’n’B while still maintaining his well-known loftiness. Still, there’s no deny the classic ambient etherealism is still present; openers ‘Glider’ and ‘Horizon’ pay homage to that.

After it’s 11th installment, Symbiosis has cemented itself as one of the best music and art gatherings in the US. The hosts have perfected the art that goes into harboring the knowledge, wonder, and magic of what experimental pop-up communities have to offer. And, as always, the music and art are top notch no matter where a wandering heart may find itself. We were somewhat skeptical of how the increased attendance – 15,000 tickets sold – would mar the experience we had last year; loss of intimacy and the trouble that comes with it (crowds, crime, and irresponsibility) weighs heavy on the luster. Upon arrival, we found the pre-fest jitters to be just that: butterflies fluttering for a home to settle. And we were home.
