The Tower is a concept album I’ve been working on for over 2 years. It’s a journey based on my own personal experiences; from dreams, fantasy, intrusive and obsessive thoughts, love, spirituality, magic, mysticism, tarot, deep healing, awareness and liberation.
As part of the project I’ll be producing artwork onto canvases; visions that were all part of my experiences during this time, and some healing scents.
The Tower Tarot
“The Tower is a card about war, a war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. This is a card about anything we believe to be true but later learn is false. This realisation usually comes as a shock, hence the violent imagery. It is, quite simply, that moment in any story where someone finds out a shocking truth, one that shatters their perceptions and makes them reassess their beliefs.” www.aeclectic.net
The seed of my delusion/fantasy came from my dreams, a voice spoke to me, I was shown puzzles and a tower. A beautiful Tower which I didn’t connect to the tarot until it’s inevitable collapse.
Above is a sketch from the last dream I experienced where a tower fell from the top of a cliff just missing two people on the ground. As I looked up to where the tower once stood there was a stunning image of an even taller statue. Standing strong arms held out and head held high. The feeling was a big YES! Empowerment and liberation.
