Dancing With the Digital Shamans


"Given that everything in reality is made of vibrations, sound science is extremely important because it has the unique ability to tune, harmonize, and modify people's vibrations (our journey). Within a sound-scape, one can transcend the physical realm and take sonic leaps and bounds of personal growth. Music brings people of all walks of life together, and it also heals the mind, body, and soul." ~ Julian Reyes / Keyframe-Entertainment (Executive Producer, Electronic Awakening)
