AYURVEDA- H. LUMINOUS RECORD RELEASE

6 08 2010

The storyline of H. luminous grew from front man Tom Buchinal’s own study of the 2012 phenomenon. “I began reading, listening, and watching everything I could about the Maya and their culture,” he says. “As soon as I would close one door, another would open. I got very much into the observance of shamanism and began to practice a little on my own. At the time, I had no clue what I was doing. I suppose I still don’t. But H. luminous is about this re-emerging contemporary shamanic vision and practice, being experienced and shared concurrently by more and more people every day. People whom I believe are the direct precursors to the emergence of Homo luminous.” (For more of Burchinal’s musings on the creation of H. luminous, see the album package.)
The music on H. luminous had a similarly intuitive, exploratory origin. Ayurveda’s four instrumentalists actually set out to write that most elusive of things for a progressive rock band, a four-minute single. But the music took them elsewhere, and soon the whole band realized that something much more ambitious was taking shape. Mystical, atmospheric sounds in some parts of the album call to mind Radiohead; other more ponderous and titanic sections evoke the power of Led Zeppelin and the primal virtuosity of Tool. H. luminous was recorded live in the studio, with the four instrumentalists playing together and only the vocals overdubbed later. Burchinal’s parts were added in a similar style later, with all lead and harmony vocals recorded in a single four-hour session. The aim was to capture the intuitive, collaborative vibe in which the album was written.

Hey everyone! Moving Box is on its way up. You are now looking at the newest
members of the Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce. We are set to be
featured in April’s Chambergram, which circulates in the county. We have come a
long way since 2005, when Moving Box was just an idea. Now it’s 2010 and we
have a newly renovated studio, a great team of people working with us and a
fantastic group of local and national clients. Much love to everyone that has helped
and contributed along the way to get Moving Box where it is today. Cheers!
