What happened to the moments in time when music had the capability to transcend our ordinary conscious awareness? Where it permeates beneath the veil and connects you with the synchronistic narrative of your interior life? An experience that provides you with meaning and mystic, peak states where we symbiotically fuse our experience beyond our 5 senses into a unified non-dualistic realm where the light and dark confront the true self. We can integrate or perish. We can run or we can go deeper and uncover the mysteries of the depths of our unconscious and face the shadow that exists in all of us. Can a band be a platform for the listener to transmute their unhealed traumas, interpret their archetypal dreams that serve as guides, infuse light when we are at the bottom of a dark well, when hope feels like an infinite tunnel of black? Can a band be an ocean of cultivation and interpretation that reaches for those damaged and affected by the mentally ill, the psychopaths and narcissists that walk among us, undetected emotionally destroying lives without remorse, without empathy, without a soul? Can this absence be an entry point for dark forces, dark energy to engulf, to open portals and passages for paranormal experiences? Do we let these ghosts pass through or do we confront them? Do we engage the metaphysical mysteries that defy our cognition or do we remain anchored to fear and skepticism?
Light Creates Shadow is a band attempting to bridge the gap in the psyche, emotions and heart, to help discover the light/dark origins and enable you journey through confrontation, self-discovery and realization. Our songs are not a guarantee but an invitation. We feel there is an absence and misuse of depth within the art form as a whole. We are on a mission to uncover and illuminate the path if the listener wants to embark. If you are open, the experience will subconsciously unfold and time will appear non-linear, just like your dreams. Within your dreams you will find the doorway that once unlocked, will allow you to awake… forever.
