Seed Crystal. An emerging soundtrack for FoAM's Anarchive, mixed by Lowdjo. 

A border crossing, genre-bending, multilingual polyphony of voices ricocheting around the globe. A musical companion for the uncertainties of our times. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Encouraging us to traverse the grey areas and interstitial spaces of the Near Now, with courage and compassion. Enfolding the raw energy of hope with the dark vibes of the season. It's an invocation, a seed crystal. Like the sunstone of old, it gives strength and helps navigate through ambiguity, refracting the tiniest hints of light into a myriad of shimmering potentials. It calls on us to become the calm amid the storm, as we break through siloes and walk through walls.
