Haven’t played my own “stand up” solo gig since August. However, I play near weekly engagements in support of kirtan wallahs throughout New England. Here is a YouTube video of my accompanying Adam Bauer with Pashawari Cohen on trap set last week end at Hope Gate Way here in Portland. Enjoy
Robert ÆOLUS Myers, fresh off the release of Talisman produced by Origin Peoples, his second retrospective LP in two years, will play a three hour ambient performance in the Courtyard of the Ocean Gate Plaza during August’s First Friday Art Walk from 5 to 8 p.m., August 2nd.
Starting with something that somehow slipped by me back in April, Robert ÆOLUS Myers` Talisman. A collection of sonic Sufism put together by Origin Peoples. Robert, now based in Portland, spent a long time in Hawaii, and was the subject of a massive retrospective on Roger Bong`s Aloha Got Soul label a few years ago. Origin Peoples have now selected five more archival tracks, and partnered these with four contemporary remixes and edits.

In 2017, Hawaiian archivists Aloha Got Soul released A Retrospective, introducing me and many others to ambient starmaster and spiritual healer Robert ÆOLUS Myers. Existing within the broader new age tradition though also standing apart from it, ÆOLUS’ music is borne of deep communion with nature and the exploratory possibilities of electronic synthesis, with fluttering arpeggiations, dreamwave sequences, and ethnological rhythms supporting cloudform symphonies and mystical flute improvisations.
