This album is a series of duo improvisations spontaneously recorded in one night in the Byron Shire.

Adrift in the vast blueness
Afloat in the blue vastness
Surrendered to time for the contemplation of the voyage.
Contemplation of the recesses of a quiet mind. Contemplation of the mystery of the starry night sky. Of our days and our nights, and solar eclipses, and luminous jellyfish, and sand.
Of loved ones, and cloud shapes. Of coffee, and pollen, and incense smoke, and choices.
Of music, and of tears.
Of parents and children and time.
Contemplation of the secret languages of animals.
Contemplation of the first rays of the sun on a snow covered mountain peak where no-one. Has. Ever. Stood.
Contemplation of polar ice shelves and the secrets they hold.
Volcanoes and the energy within.
Ancient movements of our ancient planet, our struggle to live, to love, to find meaning, to feel belonging, to know the sweetness of caring.
May the music remind you. This world of divine natural majesty, patiently awaits your contemplation.
This world of divine natural magic, delights in your creative participation.

AJ Hickling

The whisper of intuition
The eclipse of the sun
The unveiling of false
The dancing waltz
Shadow and light entwined
Grace and gratitude easily divined
Melodies of wonder fill your being
Catapulted into the great unseen
New doors and gateways open
It is you you are chosen
Be one with the bird moon and tree
Be one with the stars and shine with glee
Infinite stories fill the soulful
And screeching banchees unlock all unsaid in the dark of the light
