Celestial Harp at Forest Woodhenge    (Music video)

A match made in heaven! The Celestial Harp, a musical instrument designed to play the Zodiac and the I Ching, performs at Forest Woodhenge, a Druidic mandala of 128 posts in six concentric circles – a super sundial designed to observe the effects and phenomena of the Zodiac and the I Ching. The horoscope and the hexagrams of the moment of the performance were played, enhancing the cosmic alignment.

 

 

1. Invocation  (1’ 36”) 
…Robin Armstrong, Lisa Swarbrick, Jesse Footit and Bill Frey
Robin blows the Buffalo horn in the four directions as the
musicians enter Forest Woodhenge walking around the
wheel and spiralling inward to the centre.

2. Spectrum  (2’ 56”)
…. Robin Armstrong
Robin strums around the Celestial Harp to sound
the zodiac in the midst of the posts of the Forest
Woodhenge which mark the space of the zodiac.
Thus the divine celestial affinity between the Celestial
Harp and Forest Woodhenge is invoked.

3. Horsocope of the Moment  (12’ 14”)
…. Robin Armstrong
This piece is based upon the horoscope calculated
for the moment of the performance. The planetary
positions at the time of performance both in the zodiac
and in the I Ching hexagrams determined the sounds
and melodies played on the Celestial Harp. The resulting
music resonated deeply within the woodhenge built to
be receptive to these celestial frequencies.

4. Pyramid Vibes  (3’ 50”)
…. Robin Armstrong
The Celestial Harp was design on the basis of the
spiral, the circle and the square. In this piece the corner
strings are struck to resonate the rest of the strings.
The corners of the harp representing the pyramid
were resonated to activate the zodiac.

5. Water Spirits  (10’ 20”)
…Robin Armstrong and Lisa Swarbrick
In this piece the position of Sedna, the Sea Goddess of the
North, in the horoscope of the moment was played along with
the zodiac position of the magical spirit Aziel, which
according to Franz Bardon occupies 11-15 degrees of Taurus.
Aziel is the spirit of Divine Justice and Mercy and rules over
hidden treasures and subterranean waters.

6. Eight Directions  (12’ 59”)
…Robin Armstrong, Lisa Swarbrick, Jesse Footit and Bill Frey
This is a percussive piece for four on the harp. The 8 trigrams
of the I Ching are played. The trigrams also correspond to
the eight directions and to eight divisions of the zodiac.

7. Kuku  (3’ 44”)   
…Robin Armstrong, Lisa Swarbrick, Jesse Footit and Bill Frey
This was inspired by an African percussive work called
Kuku. The rhythms were adapted to the melodies and strings
of the Celestial Harp. This was explained as each musician
was called in to play a part. The rhythms in African music
are very specific and fit together in a poly rhythmical manner
which translates nicely to the multiple player aspect of the
Celestial Harp. It reveals some the wonderful potentials of
the Celestial Harp.

8. Galactic Presence  (4’ 46”)
…. Robin Armstrong
Chanting a sacred chant into the Celestial harp while
playing on the strings representing the super galactic centre
and other galactic clusters. The sounds Ha, Ri and Om were
chanted melodically and then the strings were bowed
replicating the melody of the chant. Chanting into the
Celsetial Harp resonates the many strings and stimulates
a chorus of harmonies.
