Totem is the solo project of Boulder based producer, Phoenix Clay Michael. Phoenix has been playing eastern-style instrumentation for over a decade(tabla, doumbek, darbuki, didgeridoo, ric, etc), while also exploring digital synthesis and sound design. Totem culminates these two passions into a modern interpretation of ancient instruments. The sampling style is deep and visceral. Blending sequences of thick bass and instrumentation with live production. Live production includes: Didgeridoo, vocals, synth, keyboard, percussion, and bass.
Phoenixs debut album with the project is titled, The Bonfire of Life, and was written and Totem/motion of solidarity with the native tribes of North America. Totem sees the immense potency that dance has for healing in our culture, and also sees the reverent nature of ancient and native style music. The ultimate thrill is fusing these two things into a continuous musical experience shared amongst listener and maker. Totem is humbled to bring thy dance medication.
Zoë Clare is Fierce le Fey, cosmic pop poet - inter-dimensional wordsmith and faerie translator. With influences ranging from Hanson to Tori Amos, Fierce brings an emotive relevance to the realms of sound design, while maintaining an engaging melodic delivery. As the poetry crystalizes, so to does the beat/bass synthesis, encouraging the listener to get lost in her relevant messages of Spiritual Growth, Personal Responsibility, and Evolutionary Tenacity. Travel through seasons with Zoë as she uses her voice to impact heartfelt intention towards positive planetary change.
Zoë began writing poetry at a very early age and has continued to grow in this direction through out many varying stages of her creative development. She has walked with a steady purpose of encouraging more vocal communication about emotions, more space for vulnerable expression, and more compassion towards each other as we each step into our Voice to Effect Responsible Change.
Lavender Fields is a self-identified "Lavendub" artist, inspired by numerous pre-existing genres from classical to reggae. Lavender Fields attempts to send positive messages through her music and does so stunningly in her song "7th Generation". Drawing inspiration from the Native American belief that we should make decisions that will be positive for the next seven generations following us, Lavender Fields encourages listeners to make a positive impact on our earth. "7th Generation" and two other tracks are soon to be released on Lavender Fields' debut EP on February 24th. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak of the project and I left it on repeat for quite some time. Lavender Fields' sound is haunting and powerful but also playful and soothing. Each track is has a strong core sound sprinkled with whimsy; the complexity provides an immersive auditory experience. https://www.lavenderfieldsmusic.com/ https://soundcloud.com/LAVENDERFIELDS http://www.starwatermagick.org/lavender-fields
