In celebration of the the 50th Earth Day, we released a new single, Dark Crystal, the first of three sonic interpretations of influential cinematic fantasy films from the 1980s.
Both Dark Crystal (the song) and The Dark Crystal (the 1982 film) share a theme of wholeness and the holistic nature of reality. Just as the crystal shard had been separated from the mother crystal, darkening the planet, we have been fractured from our relationship with mother Earth.
Reuniting the fragments of the crystal is parallel to reuniting humanity’s connection with the Earth, the very thing that we need to live and for which we should be stewards.
Released April 22, 2020 for the 50th Earth Day celebration.
