ALBUM: celestial gateways

Artist: Elfin Spiral
Label: Elfin Spiral / Wandering Minstrel Music
Genres: Alternative / Ambient / Psychedelic / Trance / Electric Guitar

Celestial Gateways (originally the first part of the double concept album Celestial Gateways & Tribal Awakenings) is inspired by concepts of doorways into other dimensions and communication with inter-dimensional and extraterrestrial consciousness recorded by many ancient tribal cultures including Native Americans, Aboriginees and Mayans. It explores modern scientific theories of tapping into genetic/cellular memory tracing back to our ancient ancestry and our links with the 'Star Beings' that are believed to have originally seeded humanity and encoded a DNA trigger into multi-dimensional consciousness.

The music is an unusual and quirky fusion of alternative ambient and uplifting psychedelic trance, with tribal beats, electric guitar and other more traditional instrumentals including acoustic guitar, 'funny' flutes (midi-horn), Native American recorders, and also features euphoric vocals. The album was engineered by the late Dave Goodman (New Age Radio, and Ex-Producer of the Sex Pistols) and Mouse Studios, with additional engineering by William Lightburn.

"It is 5am [April 2008]. Had a bad night but after listening to the 2 tracks [from Elfin Spiral CD Collection]
feel relaxed and unwound. The music was beautiful - great for meditating.
The singer was haunting with the music absolutely superb."

"At Glastonbury in 1995 I stumbled into a tent on the Field of Avalon late on Sunday night and heard the most glorious music. I had no idea who it was at the time, but afterwards I learned it was Elfin Spiral, and I bought the Celestial Gateways and Tribal Awakenings tape which has seen an awful lot of play since then. It's also been played to a lot of people, all of whom have enjoyed it immensely. That was possibly my best memory of Glastonbury 1995, and I thank you all for it."
John Upstone
