The Helio Sequence

When I wrote Helio Sequence to ask them about themselves in prep for their up-and-coming show, I didn’t expect to be showered with a kaleidoscope of thoughtful responses that ranged from French philosophy and family picnics to babies and War and Peace – kept together, of course, by the awesome thread of the sound of Helio Sequence. Thoughtful and thought-provoking, just like their music, that’s my conclusion. check out the interview here: http://www.stereopathicmusic.com/2009/02/the-helio-sequence/

I just explored tolkien’s musical influence in a term paper and learned all about the 21st c music evolution. the road goes ever on and on…
