Here is mine and Adam's Full Moon collaboration for LΓΊnasa. We haven't had a chance to speak to each other about what we felt reading-wise so I'm very much looking forward to hearing his experience. For me… πŸŒ• While writing the music, I communed with the Celtic god Lugh who, to me, feels more 'King' than deity- passionate and strong! I saw the sun setting behind hills, marking the end of a cycle. I felt his appearance indicated the ending of a cycle… πŸŒ• As always, Full Moon is a wonderful time to check in and acknowledge what is illuminated for you. This month bringing your focus to how you've been interacting with the collective can reveal worthwhile information to your conscious mind. Are you honouring *your* Truth? Are you placing *your* emotional world first? Are you following *your* path or the one that is deemed 'virtuous' by the group mind you are engaged with? πŸŒ• We are part of the collective and *we are individuals*, here to have our own individual experiences. πŸŒ• Being an individual in this current climate is incredibly challenging but you are here to live *your* life, no one else's. Allow your own unique way of being and expressing to come forward. Allow the cycle of following the hive mind come to an end and listen within to hear your Truth- sometimes your thoughts will align with others, sometimes they won't. And that is perfect. You don't owe anyone insight to your heart and soul. We do all owe it to ourselves to see, hear and accept our own souls. πŸŒ• Wishing you a beautiful and peaceful Full Moon in Aquarius- it's an intense one, be kind to yourself and those around you! β™’πŸ™πŸ’š . . . #FullMoon at 4.59pm in #Ireland πŸŒ• #Aquarius #AdamPerry @adamperryart #LauraLAIR #Art #Music #Reading #Communion #Consciousness #LΓΊnasa #August #Lugh . . . #Acceptance #Individual #EmbraceYourTruth #LetYourHeartGuideYou #RemoveTheNoise #Love #LetLoveGuide

The fifth piece in my series of Full Moon collaborations for 2020 with the wonderful artist and humanΒ Adam Perry

My contribution to our collab this month is called “What will you choose?”

Inspired by the current cycle we are in, it feels that we’ve all been here before and will be again depending on how we choose to move forward…

Our collective is made up of each individual choosing how they are going to behave in the world. This month, I feel it is vital for us all to ask within, what will you choose?!

Here is my May collaboration with @adamperryart honouring today's Full Moon πŸŒ• The name for this moon (there are many) that most resonates for me is the Milk Moon. It is- in the natural way of living- the time when the milk of the sheep, cows, goats etc comes in. It symbolises fertility and as the 4 Celtic festivals resonate so deeply for me, it makes sense that the names that align with the symbology of those festivals also resonate. Bealtaine is all about fertility, the return of the sun to the earth… the life-giving milk returning to the mother's breast. Being that we're talking about milk and mothering, the name Milk Moon also really puts the focus on the feminine and the life support to be found there. πŸŒ• Adam has made a video about his (rather epic!πŸ’«) full reading for this month, link in his bio. The message I received from the reading is the name of my track accompanying Adam's incredible artwork: "What will you choose?" πŸŒ• We are at a time of change- there have been many cycles like it before and there are many more like it to come… πŸŒ• Life does not just happen to us. Through this and every other moment of change, we get to choose our response. That is not to say the choice is easy, it's just to state there IS choice. πŸŒ• Be aware of where you are choosing to put your focus- be discerning in those choices. If you are feeling unhappy with the choices you've made in the past, choose differently in the now. That's the beauty of choice- rechoosing is always an option! πŸŒ• The beauty of being human is *we have choice*. We get to create our own individual worlds AND choose how to move through this shared one… What will you choose? πŸŒ• Putting the focus on relationship with the feminine within could be helpful and supportive this month. Treat yourself and your body as though you were a baby. Soothe, hold, massage…feed yourself in all ways with nurturing care. πŸ’š May we all choose compassion and love for self and others on this and every day πŸ™

​I was deeply moved by this artwork ‘She reveals her power to save her loved ones’ when Adam sent it to me. I tuned in to the picture for a segment of a sound bath I recorded and Adam has put this to a time lapse of him creating his stunning piece which you can watch here:

Adam writes: “The scene is 16th century England at the peak of the witch trials, a young woman is being hidden by loved ones from authorities as many of those trials lead to their execution; but she chooses to reveal herself and her powers as she does not want those caring for her to be seen as an accessory to her ‘heresy’ under the medieval religious beliefs and laws of the time.”

I felt a profound sadness, overwhelm and just depth of emotion when I tuned into the artwork and I think perhaps you’ll be able to feel some of that emotion through my piece “In Light Divine” which accompanies the art in our New Moon video.

LAIR / The Department of Energy

I’m honoured to be part of this mix tape celebrating Imbolc, created by The Department of Energy

The first release from The Department of Energy is inspired by the tributaries and tribulations of Cork’s Lee Valley. This Landscape Mixtape contains potcheen anecdotes, airborne survey planes, archive material, drowned houses, hard ambience, alluvial oak woods, unidentified flying objects, a lost mp3, a broken wav, 1980’s radio, 2020 visions, fast eddies, sloe meanders, preliminary research, semi-state bodies, statements of intent, folklore, feathered friends and the knowledge of salmon.

In the 1950’s the ESB flooded parts of the Lee Valley, when they built two hydroelectric dams to power Cork city. Gerry O’Riordan’s memories of this event (interviewed by Dr Richard Scriven for his Cork Is The Lee podcast) form part of the mixtape, alongside layers of local field recordings made by the Department of Energy over the past 12 months and extracts from some 39 year old cassettes. Have you ever noticed how a fast flowing stream sounds like environmental tape hiss?

Recently resurfaced tracks by DOE members (Mercury.mp3 & Borderland.wav) sit next to newer arrangements by Local Gods, all counterpointed by two fathoms-deep meditations from LAIR“⁠

The Department of Energy was inspired by a GAA pitch, a white quartz standing stone, an electrical station and a stream. That was February last year and since then we’ve made recordings, taken photographs and just sat and listened, all over the Lee Valley.

That raw material has been shaped into a Landscape Mixtape for your listening pleasure. It will be publicly streaming this Saturday – Brigid’s day. We’ll have our first physical release on the first of May. And something to mark every Celtic festival thereafter.”
