To be produced in conjunction with Soul Traveller Media and Uprise Works, The Rise and Rise of Conscious Music is an in-depth look at the artists, activities and events that have shaped the conscious music landscape.
Covering areas such as The Four Pillars of Conscious Music, World Music, Transformation Music, Global Beat Fusion, Yoga Fusion, and the Pathway to Conscious Music, the documentary examines the early days of conscious music within popular culture in the 60’s and 70’s through to the 80’s era of social justice.
We examine the boom in yoga and fitness as it parallels and promotes conscious music; the effects that world changing events such as 911 had on the musical landscape; the discovery of world music through the efforts of pioneers like Peter Gabriel; the Bhakti revolution celebrating the divine through music; sound healing; and the new conscious music movement infusing hip hop, electronic and dance with traditional music to create a new form for freedom of expression.
The aim of the documentary is ultimately to explore the different styles of conscious music, the effect it has on us as listeners. As Frank Fitzpatrick describes it, “...music awakens my higher aspirations and lights the path of my inner journey. If words are the limited language of my mind, music is the limitless calling of my soul.”
