A musical experience for hearts & minds - in 3 acts
Computer powered electronic compositions & musicians becomes the Cybiont: a planetary super organism under construction. Though being compared to the likes of Nick Cave and David Bowie – very few have been able to categorize this eclectic combining of musical styles, bursting with poetic social commentary. It has been called 'eco-electro', 'a planetary soup' and as 'atmospheric as Edgar Allan Poe's novels'.
Musical Bricolage as Metaphor: [Cybiont's Angels & Demons] one of the most significant albums I’ve heard this year - Wanda Waterman St. Louis, Voice Magazine
Terra is a collective work between music, poetry and philosophy. Terra, meaning Earth in Latin, is one of the cardinal elements. Terra’s songs speak of rebuilding a spiritual bridge between people and creation, the female foundation of nature.
Terra use acoustic guitars, multi layered voices, djembe and occasional loop based samples to create urgent folkcore soundscapes . Founding members are Auckland performance artist (káren) Hunter, Chilean vocalist/poet Marcelo Lopez (Fear is the Enemy) and vocalist Jess Curtis.
Soundscapes of spiritual dimensions engineered in the best of post-rock traditions. Colm takes the stage with a brand new repertoire in this first public appearance in years.
