The Precession of the Equinox is a 26,000 year planetary cycle of Earth’s axial rotation; a seemingly imperceivable span of time and astronomical awareness, yet understood and encrypted in the myths and sciences of advanced ancient civilizations. It indicates an expanded awareness of this reality and our place in the cosmos, suggesting the existence of communication with beings of higher intelligence and spiritual technologies.
This channeled music embodies the shift towards what arises when integrating these awarenesses. It was made during a time of great pain and uncertainty not just in my own experience but collectively through forced periods of isolation and introspection. To reach through those thresholds and surrender to their teachings, finding on the other side there is a universal understanding of humanities place in the great unveiling, therein. In the alchemical process of transformation by which darkness is made light, lead turns to gold, and fear is transmuted into love in a unification of dualities, Precession of the Equinox was born.
It is my hope that those who listen enter a formless space where the potential to create a reality using imagination and inspired transmissions for the highest potential feel supported by the same loving, all knowing hand that gave me this song. To project this consciousness onto and into form is to create a beautiful external world where we can exist graciously. This consciousness is made accessible by merging meditative states and acts of creation. It is worth taking great care in such an honorable task. While there are no words in this song, this is what it has spoken to me.
California-born artist Brogan Bentley produces a hybrid style that draws inspiration from the sub-sonic bellows of the electronic underground upwards to the celestial Music of the Spheres. A deep familial lineage in music provided a foundation that allows him to seamlessly convey what is timeless and essential through song, drawing influence from Ambient, Psychedelic, Dub and Traditional Folk music as vessels to carry sonic energy forth. Bentley weaves inspiration from sound healing, Hemi-Sync Meditation, brainwave entrainment techniques and the Gateway Experience in his work. With soaring vocals serving as guides, his ethereal leanings are grounded by an undeniable depth and soulfulness.

I love this album! It helps me imagine the micro and macrocosms in the earth and in the soil and in space! a multi-scalar, multi sensory experience of ecosystems across time and space. Warm golden light, slow crystal growth over eons, geological forces and deep time, walking through woods, looking at plants and the smell of petrichor (the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil) jen-du-chatsein
