about

Major Arcana is a 22 song cycle that explores the trump cards (or major arcana) of the tarot deck, from the Fool to the Universe. Each card is a a meditation on the symbolism within that card, as well as my own personal relationship to the card. Utilizing samples as a form of sympathetic magic, a mixture of both personal and more transcendent lyric writing, acoustic and electronic arrangements in combination with lush harmonies, Major Arcana has become a set of exploratory rituals attempting to capture the wisdom of each card, for myself and for everyone.
