Empathic Ethos and a Well-Fed Soul: An Interview with Justin Boreta of The Glitch Mob

I had a chance to talk with Justin Boreta of Glitch Mob and pick his brain about the work he loves.

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)

In my personal musical cosmology, Gang Gang Dance are to the Aughts (2000-2010) what Future Sound of London’s epic Life Forms double-LP was to the mid-nineties, and what Floyd’s UmmaGumma was to the early 70s.
