about

The Fool's Journey is the Tarot: the illustrated story, from beginning to end, of Spirit descending into Matter. It consists of 22 Major Arcana (from arcane, meaning secret) cards illustrating archetypal energies, and 56 Minor Arcana cards illustrating variations of experience and elements encountered along the journey. It is most commonly known as a divination tool, but is more profoundly used as a method of self-study and also as visual illumination to understand the spiritual nature of the human experience.

Through looking at the card while playing the piano spontaneously, I draw out a song from the image. I consciously chose cards which I felt moved to express, in the order they play out on the album. As in a divinitory reading, a storyline in generated in addition to the individual messages inherent in each card. Some songs came to completion on their own time, some were signaled to end when the remaining tarot deck fell off piano deck, and some were interrupted by external interference. The songs came through the piano on 7/22-23-24/2019.
