**Hawaiian new age music from the early ’80s compiled in new LP** A key figure in Hawaii’s groundbreaking new age movement of the 1980s and early 90s, Robert Aeolus Myers’s sonic storytelling has echoed through the decades, growing in volume since the 2017 retrospective on Aloha Got Soul. Composing and performing music for dance, transformational theatre, worship or rebirth, Robert’s talent has taken him across the globe, allowing him to expand his mind and enrich the lives of those around him. During the mid nineties, Robert transferred the honesty and empathy at the heart of his music to the field of depth psychology, exploring the receiving and holding of stories within the therapeutic container.

Touched first by the emotional depth of the music, and subsequently by the warmth and wisdom of the man, Origin Peoples sought to capture a snapshot on this special vinyl release. This newest chapter of the Æolus myth seen for the first time on vinyl are five of his most expressive pieces, alongside a quartet of remixes by kindred spirits from all corners of the globe. This is the first time his music has been interpreted by others, and Robert’s delight at the result speaks volumes of his adventurous and open-minded attitude.

Approaching the often intangible new age genre with a humanist approach, Robert creates immersive and expansive pieces which connect with the listener on a spiritual and emotional level. Archetypal narratives are retold through nuanced electronics, evocative motifs and empathetic flute, the varied compositions informed by Myers’ classical training, spiritual pursuits and study of ethnomusicology.
