Astral Travel is the brainchild of Andrew Webb Bauer, 23, of Santa Cruz, CA. Synthesizing rock, classical, psychadelic and IDM influences, Astral Travel has given birth to dream-gaze.
Ethereal, shimmering, soaring, meditative and hypnotic, the music evokes the wordless emotions of the dream world from whence it comes.
Each song is crafted like a painting, with layers of delayed guitars gliding over pulsating bass grooves and soothing washes of feedback, ambience and vocal harmonies. drenched in an ocean of reverb and space echoes, the vocals are used as an instrument to complement the driving guitars.
Inspired by the Indian teachings of Advaita Vedanta and the rugged natural beauty of the northern california coast, Bauer's music and lyrics take you on a dream-like journey into of the worldless beauty of your own being.
"The Sound of Light", Astral Travel's Self-Produced Debut Album features the angelic voice of Big Sur's Danielle Hiscock and the soulful drumming of Carmel's Ryan Lotz. It was recorded over an 8-month period in Santa Cruz, Pacific Grove and Big Sur, California. Set for Wide-Release on June 14th, 2008. You can order your copy at:www.astraltravelmusic.com
