Multidimensional Music, 1993
HOLY MOTHER/FATHER DIVINE!! THIS
IS THE REAL THING !!
2 years of going to her website and thinking
about it, I finally acquired all 10 cd's
from French visionary sound artist, Jacotte
Chollet. This is some of the most
intensely PHYSICAL and overtly HEALING
synthesis I have had the pleasure of experiencing.
I am not going to rush through these discs,
but study and learn from them, so I will
give you reviews as I assimilate each
one's offered alignments.
Multidimensional Music, as stated at the
website, is designed to basically reset
one's energy-body (the various energic
sheaths, or"auric fields," along
with other energetic structures and ultimately
the physical structure itself to the original
pattern of cosmic wholeness. Smirk if
you will, but I tend to agree that that
is what is happening here.
Less than 30 seconds into listening to
this first disc in the series, "Renaissance",
I felt like I was coming on to an entheogen,
complete with the initial anxiety and
subsequent dilation of my personal consciousness.
This first piece, "Liberte",
features the adept use of swirling
harp with sequenced synth and strings.
At the same time I am feeling a strong,
entheogen-like rush to a new level of
awareness, I am feeling a deep aesthetic
appreciation of this music: a
really sweet production which reminds
me of my favorite Jean Michel Jarre recordings.
Classically beautiful, majestic and fully
realized. Then, the Marcey-like harp strummings
begin to entrain me into a blissful emotional
reverie and so begins a graceful descent
into a mid-theta state where I am already
noticing very powerful healing energies
and becoming less alert. This transition
occurs relatively rapidly and by minute
6, my anxiety at the rapid change of state
is completely gone. The harp swirlings
become wider, higher,deeper. Slowly, an
ascent is made to a more alert low alpha-region
and I am able to pay more attention to
where the music is affecting me physicaly
(actually, there are numerous places but
I suppose one zeroes in on a particular
area according to one's temperment.) I
realize that this is a heart oriented
piece that is also stimulating the higher
The second piece, the
By minute 3, Iam on a steep gradient
into a delta stateand basically asleep
before reaching minute 5. But dreaming
floridly, experiencing intense visuals
(and this is without chemical assistance,
mind you.) A vision comes to me in a dream
indicating the root area of my chronic
physical pain. I am shown EXACTLY where
the problem is, but realize that there
is some work to do to be able to unpackit.
This music is very much like
Michael Hammer and i can state confidently
that Jacotte and Michael have overlap
in their work accessing the identical
energies. Michael tends to be very shiny
in his work; some gaseous trimmings at
times but usually sheer brightness.
Jacotte definitely is describing the same,
but also has this intriguing dreamy, soulful
aspect melded with it.
These energies that they are accessing
I refer to as "Ascension energies,"
which are aligned to the higher dimensional
realms of the ascended masters and naturally
on by direct route connections to Divine.
I mainly point this out because there
are numerous valid Divine musics. Patrick
Bernhardt, for instance,through his use
of sacred mantra esoterically travels
established Vedic, Abrahamic or other
Shamanic routes which also lead to Divine.
David Parsons is aexcellent exponent of
Tibetan Buddhism in his music.
Ascension energies i would have to say
are based in the tradition of Christ.
My experiences interacting with thisreality
lead me to believe that this is in the
esoteric Spirit of the Greek Gnosis and
the Christos, which is inclusive of the
Jesus, but also includes many otherfigures
representative of Sacrifice, Forgiveness
and Healing. These are the Ascended Masters
of the fourth sphere of the Tree of Life
who are a pretty multiculturalgroup. The
basis of this knowing is the realization
that we are all creatures of Love and
beings of Light andthat Oneness of Creative
Being infuses all, making us all innately
of the Universal Oneness Love Being simply
called Christ. Each figure in this Celestial
Holarchyis a representative, an embodiment,
of a certain ability or way-of-being of
I consider the music of Ascension to be
markedly different from, say, the quite
Catholic nature of the works of Richard
Shulman or traditional liturgical singing
(even though repopularizing overtone singing)
of David Hykes. Even Angelic composers
Raphael or Aeoliah tend to familiar themes
in classical music. I should mention here
thegreat work in ACTUAL Greek Gnosis music
by Paul Avgerinos. But this Ascension
Music transcends its cultural underpinnings,
isn't predictable from thefamiliar, and
gives us the freedom to notice how it
is affecting us!
The 10 minute third piece entitled,
"Expansion," begins with an
palpable wiggle in the third eye which
builds into an interesting Enoesque environment
that is quite distinct from the previous
two pieces. By the beginning of minute
2, I'm feeling distinct SHIFTS in my head
as, so it seems to me, the cranium adjusts
to the sound envelope.
I am also getting strong vibrations in
the base chakra and the soles of my feet
are tingling; soon, my entire right foot
from the top of the ankle down is tingling.
(later, I remember the injury 34 years
My spinal column seems to be charged with
radiant flow that easily passes down the
length, removing small blocks in the inner
cord. Following this, a definite emphasis
on the upper two vertebrae and it seems
their relationship is harmonized.
The wild thing is: this all seems
so precise, yet it is obvious that I'm
zeroing in on only SOME of all the effects
going on in this display of coherent sound.
The final minutes seem to return to a
focus on the third eye itself.
Iam now quite alert and feeling energized.
A high alpha, even possibly low beta state.
then it fades....
The last piece, "Renaissance",
is a third eye work-out.
Photonic swirling is ricocheting
inside my cranium for eternity & it
feels great! By the end, my head feels
clear and I seem much more focused in
my attention and more Present.
I found this recording to be a profound
On repeated listen, completely new aspects
keep leaping out with each listen. If
I close my eyes, I get recognizable Visions.
I've been sleeping more deeply and my
dream life has become more active.
More on THAT later!
If i was to try to qualify it,
I would say this disc is about being OPEN
I am always looking for music of Spiritual
Essence. I t is one of my fundamental
motives for being so involved in Visionary
To my mind, the artists who actually
achieve this are rare and of the highest
order of expression in Sound.
Music is the Language of Emotion. It is
our way of communicating states of Being
that one could possibly be in if one CHOSE
to Feel that way. (and why not? since
it feels great!) among these artists,
of whom *imho* Michael Hammer, Patrick
Bernhardt, Iasos and Jeffrey S. Thompson
are signature exponents, I believe we
must include Jacotte Chollet (and this
after hearing only 2 of the 10 cds!)
My main recommendation is that
if you are going to buy one of these discs,
you may as well buy the set, because you
are going to want all of them.

CD INVISIBLE PRESENCE
Multidimensional Music, 1991
LOOKING FOR VIBRATORY INFORMATION should
check out the entire series of discs by
Jacotte. This is music which can actually
revamp one's bioenergic field into a more
harmonious state. I'm not kidding.
This release, "Invisible
Presence," improves the listener's
connections to their Higher Self, Holy
Guardian Angel or what have you "Inner
Teacher." Since I've 10
of these discs to discuss,
I've created a separate Jacotte page you
can go to to read the full review. I'm
doing this to be fair to other artists
who have only one or two reviews a year.
AN INCREDIBLE LOW THETA JOURNEY
INTO THE HEART FOR A MEETING WITH THE
The way this review works is I'm writing
my impressions and memories during the
The 16 minute, "Transfert,"
begins with a TangerineDream-like bassynth
pattern that has a Kraftwerk-style production
but is slow and steady trance-inducing.
Periodic cosmic whooshes seem to suggest
movement through a long tunnel or stargate
The dark, nearly sinister, atmosphere
suggests an approach toward something
that can be felt to be powerful, yet so
nebulous as to inspire dread or at least
trepidation. I've had similar feelings
whenever approaching my own personal shadow
material or strongly repressed material.
At the beginning, one appears to be moving
forward and up, but by minute 4, a pronounced
sinking feeling is provided by mid-range
descending riffs, melodic declensions.
This brings us down into a comfortable
This is a piece that would be great late
night listening. The headspace is mid-theta:
spacey but not forcing liminal awareness.
The affects seems to be in the upper body
- clarifying, relaxing, but also towards
the end suggesting work being done.
The 11 minute, "Evocation,"
begins with revolving patterns in the
heart and head, with a piano plunking
out a simple single not melody which taps
the top of the cranium, particularly just
above the cranium.
An interesting chorale effect is also
present which I fancied on the first listen
was influenced by a Roman canticle. The
voices are not saying anything that can
be definitively made out, so they invite
one's mind to impose semantic meaning.
Given the cues from the style of cant,
my mind was hearing the phrases "sacred
jesus" and "thank you jesus."
Since this song is "Evocation,"
I allowed the idea that this is a call
for the presence of Iesous (and not "cheezwiz,"
which I was also able to hear.) Allowing
this enable to connect strongly with the
Iesous of my previous life experience.
The 12 minute, "Solar Lord,"
is quite slow and stately, with a bass
pulse in the heart chakra every five secs
or so. A synth drone and some phasing
provide a sacred tamboura-like atmosphere.
A synth lead sinuously winds through the
piece like an harmonium and some harp
trills aesthetically placed suggest some
playfulness. Overall, the piece is quite
still and meditative, easily taking the
listener down into low-theta. This
piece took me deeply into the center of
my heart, where a star was shining, and
the reverberations caused my third eye
to open wide.
The synchronistic thing about
this composition was that a couple
of minutes into the piece,
during my first ever listen to it, my
CD player suddenly TURNED OFF! This was
to be the first of numerous strange technical
things that have been happening in this
apartment since I started working with
multidimensional music. The player had
never done this before and I was in a
completely darkened room and so had no
direct way of knowing if the circuit breaker
had been flipped or not (although i think
not, because my cable TV box was still
showing the correct time and not rebooting.
I suppose that they could be on different
circuits, but it doesn't seem likely.)
The title song, "Invisible
Presence," is a 20 minute offering
of extremely well done space music on
a par with Jonn Serrie's planetarium music.
I could use this piece in a set that also
had recordings of actual interplanetary
space: it provides a feeling of cosmic
vastness while still apparently centered
in the heart. "Invisible Presence"
is about reconnecting to the Higher Self
in a more conscious way. While,
as I've mentioned, the works seems to
have affinities with Christ, it is not
overtly so and I think is sufficiently
accessible to transcend religious boundaries.
As an experienced sound explorer, I can
state that Jacotte's music is pretty tradition-transparent
compared to many other artists in the
This album seemed to me to be in the delta/theta
frequency ranges, very relaxing and not
alert, easy to slip into slumber.
As a side note, after my first listen,
I was making a cup of tea and musing over
what I had just heard.
I was reminiscing about what a friend
had said some years ago -- "The
essence of the psyche- delic experience
is the nervous system realizing that is
is a part of something greater" --
when suddenly the alram on my stove started
In order to set the alarm, you have to
push in and turn. Obviously, I must have
brushed against it, but in all my years
in this apartment, I don't recall having
done that before! ...and the timing was

CD UNITE - 2 CD
- Multidimensional Music, 1996
has become a weekly review process so
far, even though I am much farther ahead
in the actual listening process. just
completed 1st listen of 9th disc...anyway...
Here follows the review for the third
album in the series.
THIS 2CD SET CONTAINS THE MOST
SUBLIMELY MYSTERIOUS AURAL SCULPTURE IN
It is extremely relaxing and is
a long sustained delta sleep voyage healing
the listener back to the wholeness and
oneness of all being. I fell
asleep during the first 3 listens of both
respective disc: a total of SIX passouts!
Couldn't even stay awake when I was TRYING
After these 6 listens, I could not differentiate
the compositions in my mind or memories.
It all ran together. In order to write
the following descriptions, I had to listen
to the recordings upon arising from my
night's sleep and write my impressions
down immediately. Even these sessions
had to be repeated over a number of days,
faithfully in the morning.
In the waking state, one has a physical
body; when asleep, and dreaming, one has
a dreambody or "subtle" body;
in dreamless sleep, one enters into a
formless state, the "causal"
body, in which their is only an infinite
Vastness of pure nonconscious awareness.
The Vedics called this reality "Alaya"
and said that in deep dreamless sleep
we are closest to our true nature -- the
pure awareness of the Alaya -- and in
simple natural bliss.
This reality has been given many names
i think: the Qabalistic "Ain Soph,"
the Buddhist "Svavabhavikhaya"
and the Western concept of the "Great
Void," an Immense Emptiness of Absolute
Potential from which all form (or rather
the experience of form) arises as the
"Oneness." This is Unity in
its penultimate sense.
This album provides the listener
with an opportunity to touch and to remember
touching the Oneness.
Roi (Love Rules) Unite,
CD 1 Jacotte Chollet,
INTENDED AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO
EXPERIENCE SOME OF THE DIFFERENT QUALITIES
OF COSMIC LOVE, this disc seems to me
to mainly be helping one to receive love
and to sustain a "love- circuit"
if you will, with another loving being.
it may also help decrystallize rigid monological
ideas of what Love is or can be.
I wanted to describe the opening
8 minute piece, "Soul Search,"
with the word QUIZZICAL. it is
like the album opens with many questions
hoping for answers. This is a deeply soulful
piece that is pretty unique, reminding
of some of the querlous moments Mourashkin
or Wendy Carlos have recorded. There seems
to be an underlying classical music (Russian?)
As the track continues, the questioning
does become more of a search, but it is
slow and methodical. The head space is
low theta, taking the listener into a
transic state hovering above slumber.
While this is electronic music non pareil,
the atmosphere resembles a classic "sombre"
Rising up from the depths with
the next piece, "Energy," (about
10 & half minutes,) we emerge into
an unearthly upward-flowing liquid environment
populated by a pixie-like species of tryptaminElves.
As these psidelic gnomes are wont to do,
they begn their particular task, which
in this cae appears to be lots of hammering
with these magical hammers that change
size on the downstroke to emit the correct
on the strike. They are hammering
on the listener of course! It feels great!
Each hammer strike causs a little bubble
in the energybody to expand to its optimum
dimension with new energy from outside
the system filling it up.
a short five minute grotto- like interlude
between 2 longer songs. It is an interesting
bit of dark ambient with subterranean
undertones which gives the listener a
refreshing pause to recoup from the hammering.
The eleven minute, "Osmose,"
is a Marcey-like piece. There is a slowly
oozing sensation going into deep theta
with long delay echoes of harp plucks
in the general upper body and head. One
is lulled into a waking state. I found
towards the end of this piece that there
was a palpably WARM sensation around the
base of my head and upper neck as if it
was being cradled by loving hands.
Another five minute piece, "Healing
Love," is a flowery, sweet
heart chakra piece that begins with a
pleasant shimmering in the mid and upper
chest that melts into a feeling of fulfillment
the 16 minute title song, expands from
the previous piece into feelings of Hope,
Devotion and Anticipation.
De La Vie (The Mystery Of Life) Unite,
CD 2 Jacotte Chollet
MultiDimensional Music, 1996.
This disc begins with the 7 minute,
"Chronos," which is
a classic electronic track. Shafts of
golden light ray out from the indigo abyss.
A third eye opener clearly intended to
induce a transic mind flow.
Chronos, or Chronus, is the God of Time.
The only thing male about Chronos, in
my opinion, is the fact that he is male.
All of his qualities and related symbols
are goddess images borrowed from preexisting
feminine deities. I'm getting
a visual of an ultraviolet toroid, reminding
me of the sphere of Saturn, Binah, in
Qabala, which is the Great Mother. This
song is very yin but the outflow from
it is yang.
"Valhalla" is fourteen
and a half beautiful minutes of deeply
restful delta peace.
Now i know why i couldn't stay awake.
The Valhalla of Scandinavian mythology
is one of the heavenly realms in the greater
heaven named Asgard. It is a great hall
in which Odin lives with spirits of warriors
who have fallen in glory. Their heavenly
pursuits are combat all day followed by
a miraculous healing of their wounds.
At night, they enjoy a wondrous feast
featuring an inexhaustable supply of mead.
The composition is very architectural,
using sequencing to develop visions of
pillars and geodesic much like Michael
Hammer does. I think, however, that the
emphasis here is on the endless supply
The third piece, "Sanctuary," is also around 15 minutes. It
has a strong glimmer moving in the alpha
range of about 8 hertz or so, with a one
hertz delta puls. As i recall, after nearly
15 minutes of slumber in Valhalla, one
pretty much gloms onto the delta pulse,
but there seems to be this high speed
dream happening overhead. The pulse and
glimmer are in the throat and most of
the energic activity is in the neck and
head. There is also a hint of anxiety
and wariness at the beginning, which speeds
up to a feeling of peace and euporia.
The tempo increases again and there is
a feeling of energizing and power.
A rustling takes form as if a
shaman were sweeping one with a rattle
and fan. Yes, the last half of this song
seems to be a healing ritual performed
in protective secrecy. Interesting
one here....*raised eyebrow*.... An increasing
emphasis on the rattle slows things back
down to a dreamy theta by the end of the
The title song, "Mystery
Of Life," is para- doxical in
the way that certain Iasos songs get a
little confusing and one beings to feel
that they are losing the plot or the thread
of the story.
I think it might be the use of breathy
woodwinds with lots of echo. So much is
going on that it is hard to keep track
of the originating voice.
There is also a meandering melody which
gives one the feeling of following an
unfamiliar path or trail....After
ten minutes of that, it is as if we have
reached our underground burrow and there
is a warm feeling of Home. Soon, this
is followed by whatever the interiorized
behavior of a subterranean creature is....i
was getting flashes of insect nests and
The composition allows life to remain
a Mystery as the album closes with the
lifeform...in its home...nesting...

Multidimensional Music, 2000
ACTIVATING ALPHAWAVE ANGELIC ARCHITECSONIQUES
a truly amazing and satisfying recording
this is!! I would think anybody with a
love & appreciation for Angelic or
Ascension music would really enjoy this
which to me is the orange sister album
to Solaris Universalis and Atlantis Angelis
by Patrick Bernhardt (both of said albums
being well suited to the color of their
respective album covers, as this is to
its mellow light orange.
I swear my toes were curling by the second
minute of the second song & the rest
was a feast for the senses.
The album begins in a classical angelic
mode, the moves into quite inspired Space
Music somewhere between Constance Demby
at her best and Jonn Serrie, the well
known planetarium music electronic composer.
I have a theory: *ahem* ... the
first four discs of this 10 disc series
basically "NAIL" you.
You are basically diaGNOSISed, the ReSet
button gets hit & then you get retemplated
to a healthy waveform.
Unconscious terror can erupt in the return
of memories or atavisms thereof not limited
simply to dream Visions but also physical
affects and mood swings. I myself had
an eruption of disturbance between me
& my downstairs neighbors. It was
like he couldn't stand subliminally feeling
the vibes I was giving off and he was
slamming the door and throwing stuff around.
as soon as I got to "Creation,"
it resolved itself (I think...) so the
resurgences can also be events in one's
Anyway, the first 4 albums are
a RESET and this is really the first fully
"alpha state" album where you
can actually clearly focus on the soundwave
information being conveyed. You've heard
of "Biofeedback?" well, this
is BIOFEED,that is to say: describing
states of vibration that you or i could
be in and, hence, the general mental states
associated with that frequency range.
A lot of biofeed is also about learning
how energy in one's own bioenergic envelope
moves and can be moved.
The name of the album is CREATION, and
that is indeed what it is about. feeling
creative, thinking creatively and creating
realities. so it is quite active and energizing,
while at the same time being very suggestive
on a visual level.
The initial piece, "Heaven,"
is a playful 7 minute improv on some ideas
that are signature Debussy and exemplared
in his, "Prelude To An Afternoon
Of A Faun". Both Iasos and
Maui's Raphael, penultimate Angelic maestros,
have explored the atmospheres in these
impressionistic phrases which pretty much,
the rest of his canon aside, demonstrate
that Debussy was in touch with something
greater and Beyond. It conjures
images of natural Paradise with animal
innocence, yet it is also magical and
mysterious, suggestive of something evanescent
of a higher reality being miraculously
translated downward to a denser reality.
Jacotte's work is a real pleasure to listen
to and has that dreamy Marcey-lik zinginess
that really attracts me to her music.
This piece sets the tone for the rest
of the album. Clearly, a mid-alpha vibe,
the listener finds it easy to remain alert
and notice shifts in energy.
"Magical" is an 8 minute
tour de force of angelic DARK ambient!!
This was about the time I started being
delighted with this album. This song is
deep, dark and mysterious, yet has what
I originally described, in the best possible
way, as a "goofy" quality. Like
being in a dream where things aren't quite
making sense, although one knows that
they are, but on the face of it the people
are acting kind of "goofy."
The feeling is like what one might have
if one was realizing that ANYTHING could
happen. It is like intuitive choosing
of specific states from an ocean of potential.
This mellows into a quixotic rearchitecturalization
of the chosen states by means of subtle
will into the web of real events....er,
that's what I got out of it anyway....it
reminds of that time in the wee hours
of the morning when the Veil is thinnest....
The ten minute, "Oratorio,"
takes us to the Sea of Light. while
I could name many artists who have Voyaged
these realms, Jacotte swathes it with
angelic crystalline moments reminding
me in particular of Raphael's fantastic
album, "Angels Of The Deep,"
or in some ways the "Sea Of Glass"
from Giles Reaves. However, again, this
is somewhere between Demby & Serrie.
and a marvelous production in the same
The oceanic flow soon becomes gaseous,
with a pronounced throat chakra brainwave
pulse in the alpha range. Hey!: I'm wide
awake for this album!! About halfway through,
an emphasis on the heart (and, thus, speaking
with the heart) occurs and this leads
into a healing fugue that slows down into
a midtheta trance.
This entire sequence is so well
arranged and executed, I'm pretty much
in awe by the end. "Condor Flight"
pulls us back up into relaxed but alert
alpha for a soaring journey into
a MichaelHammeresque environment, which
suggests flight over terrestrial peaks
at first but soon leaves even the clouds
for gaseous Aethyric realms traversed
mostly by extreme intuitives like Hammer
or by dedicated mystik craftspeople like
Tibetan innerscapes composer David Parsons.
The last third of this 10 minute piece,
changes to a feeling of discovery as if
we have spotted our home roost, primal
Nest. We are returning to a familiar
place, yet there is a feeling of revelation
and wonder as if we'd been gone so long
we'd forgotten. And a sense of being welcomed
The fifth track, "Cosmic
Love," begins like the "bliss
music" of Kip Mazuy.
There is an intense sensation of deep
love and I check my heart chakra only
to realize -- !! -- this is in the crown
chakra and i'm about to go over the falls
into ekstasy!! o man!! and there's 12
minutes of this?? tremulously hovering
on the brink of Divine Chaos, shivering
with the ambrosial thrills of a white
Light that infuses the room, dancing on
the skin like the touch of goddesses.
this softens and begins to swirl. the
Ocean of Milk, i call it, the Bliss of
Pure Ananda, the Nectar of Joy.
Seated on the Lily pad of the Lotus, meditating
on the Secrets, dining on the delicacies
of the Divine. Then in the last two minutes,
the Return from that throne of elevated
awareness to the Body so nourished and
tranquil, remembering Home. and back in
alpha by the end (just in time for tea!)
The final piece, "Space Song,"
is 17 minutes beyond the threshold
in a paradoxical realm that the inner
voice says is where Will originates. This
is not simple galactic or transgalactic
space. This is more like the Pleroma or
the Logos:Void of Absolute Potential.
This space is crackling with power and
This is like a transrational Will operating
in a way that these bodies were not DESIGNED
Or, put another way, this is like the
Hyperspace of the Imagination, a realm
outside of simple space, yet interior
to it also, filling it up from behind
so to speak, with a gazillion new forms
and vibrations bursting forth from it
every millimicromoment. then sensation
is like travelling outward to the ends
of the IS, only to find oneself diving
deeper into a reality that can't be communicated
adequately. but, it would seem, music
does a better job than words...
While "Creation" is immediately
my favorite disc of the set, for sheer
exuberance and strong positivity, getting

SWEETEST AND MOST LOVELY SLEEP
DISC I OWN
This is a long drink of lavendar nectar
to be sure! Nourishing and comforting.
Like slumbering in a bed of fragrant flowers.
After the very intense tribulations of
the first 3 albums, getting a lot of confused
energy flushed out and such, and then
the magnificence of the CREATION disc,
this is a welcome experience of gentle,
tender caring and unconditional nurture.
The one real abreaction I had during this
disc was that I had vivid dream visions
in the slumber.
These dreams were nearly lucid and vibrant.
No, I had not taken any drugs to cause
The album opens with "Silent
Light," a savory 15 minute theta
journey to the Bright World. On the wing
of Prayer, we sail through the glassy
sheets of Light to the Heart of an ever-arriving
Dawn. A gentle, healing, nourishing swathe
of the Unio Mysterium.
The last few minutes slow to high delta
and the urge to fully relax and close
the eyes is quite strong. The music evokes
a yawn response. By the end of the piece,
I'm usually govering on the edge of sleep.
"Awakening" is a 13
minute piece that lures one from the precipice
of slumber into an active dreaming somnolence
-- the paradoxical "mind awake; body
It seems to me that the information being
conveyed here is an extension from some
of that on the CREATION album.
The information on conscious creation
on that album is recast here as a complimentary
"Unconscious Creation," if you
will. In magical terms, conscious creation
is "Making," whereas unconscious
creation is "Allowing." So,
this creative process occuring at the
borderline of dreams is described in a
song named "Awakening."
Perhaps it is part of one's awakening
to be more interactive with one's unconscious
After this, "Soul Memory"
an 8 minute Ambient piece, evokes a quiet,
solitary mood appropriate to the state
we refer to as Reflection: an extended
introspective consideration of a matter
or of an idea (according to me.)
This composition serves as a bridge, as
a calming period between sections of the
album. It allows the slumberer a little
time to absorb the previous material,
get centered and develop a clean dominant
brainwave for what follows.
Which is the epic 22 minute "Tao,"

out of all creation into slippery zingers

This piece operates well outside the box
of standard listening experience and probably
shouldn't be played at your workplace.
Its' sound is oblique, weird, yet it is
really well done and a delicious intrigue.

CD SKY DANCING
I'd been holding
off on listening to the last disc of the
series, ASCENSION, but
decided to listen to the first two pieces
monday morning (trying to savor the experience.)
then I turned on the TV & the VirginiaTech
shooting was in progress. odd....
UNIQUE ULTRAMYSTERIOSO UNDULATING
2 very joyous and relaxing albums, the
theme of Discovery and spiritual devlopment
is rejoined in SKY DANCING.
I felt like I'd been to classes on personal
power as creativity and on
how to receive nurture and unconditional
Love, and now was going to learn
about responsibility: the ability
to respond, to see the work before one
which needs to be done and to engage it
and transform it.
> This is one of the most difficult
albums by Jacotte for me to describe because
its quality is SO "sine qua non."
Tone" is a 9 minute
piece which begins this inner plane Flight
with bell-like tones reverberating through
some delayed echo and weaving around sinuous
synth drones. This was the first piece
where I was remembering the title of the
song and thinking, "yeah, I want
to hear that again."
By this time in the series, it was easier
to pay attention since I wasn't experiencing
any abreaction in my energy.
This shorter piece is a low-to-mid "alpha"
introduction to the environment on this
disc, which is sort of a culmination of
the previous two and introduces a higher
vibration which is articulated through
the rest of the series.
The 20 minute "Divine
the harmonic interval of the 5th to great
advantage, focusing on the relationships
of navel to throat chakra and of solar
plexus to third eye, I believe. This seems
to bring up material regarding sexuality,
dominance and competition. A dolphin-like
voice in the head seems to create a situation
of hovering above the sea of this material
and viewing it. So there is this feeling
of Flight in the form of Hovering and
Watching. The Saga, apparently, being
the ostensible procession of images of
the use of energy and power.
In the next piece, entitled, "Angel
Choir," a noticeable
spiral spin begins to occur in this Hovering
A remarkable emotional milieu
begins to unfold, which I can only describe
in paltry terms as the wonder of the beauty
of otherworldly extradimensional phenomena,
the sense of "strange beauty"
as it is sometimes called, in
an admixture of apprehension (the trepdiation
that comes from not knowing what will
happen next) along with a sense of discovery.
The title track SKY DANCING
is about 10 minutes of Ascent, where Divine
Nectar is also descending from the higher
realms Beyond the summit. After
a few minutes, we alight upon the head
of the pin, so to speak, and are surrounded
by an incandescent, rarefied atmosphere,
filled with geometric lattice lacings
that are at once crystalline and electromagnetic.
we are so Light we can float in the medium.
It is dancing all around us. the sky is
dancing. the heavenly vault within. Amazing.
slowly it all begins to flow and become
an ocean of nectar that we are drifting
The 12 minute, "Infinity,"
finds gliding down the endless mirrored
Tunnel of Light, with the bright Gleaming
of the pinnacle of Flight beaming from
the end up ahead to us.
We are flying. flying into the Eternal
Oneness beyond the neverending.
This is why we got into electronic music
in the first place. Aces !

CD HIGH SPACES
MMD Productions, 2002
SONIC QUANTUUM LEAP PROVIDES FRESH
may have noticed that while Iwas experiencing
definite abreactions when initially listening
to MultiDimensional Music, I travelled
through the last 3 - - Creation, Silent
Light, and Sky Dancing -- with little
in the way of bizarre energy tweaking,
emotional leakage or synchronisticoddities.
I'd actually been feeling a little proud
of myself, "experienced sound explorer"
that i fancy myself to be. I thought I'd
made some adjustments and was now learning
new materials, but that i had surmounted
most of the disharmonies in my personal
energic field. Uh...not quite...
The three compositions on this release
are "Spheres" or vibratory fields
of living information.
The first "Sphere of Love" is
20 minutes of intense synthesis which
is loving, but not in the safe happy angelic
way one thinks of heavenly love. This
is deeply transformative vibrational biofeed
It makes me think of when I, as a baby,
would get my diaper changed by my mother.
Now, I might not particularly WANT to
go for the diaper change right at this
moment, and my mother was trying to be
as gentle and loving as possible BUT the
diaper change was GOING to happen (know
what I mean?) okay: this is like a
metaphysical diaper change.
Around half way through, my spine suddenly
arched and my lumbar and lower thoracic
vertebrae all crunched into a new alignment.
Only rarely have I ever experienced such
a full scale vertebral realignment and
NEVER while neither being worked on by
a therapist nor actively stretching or
exercising. This happened while I lay
prone meditating. suddenly the spine arched
and the vertebrae realigned.
Afterwards, there was some additional
crunching as the calcium deposits that
build up from misalignment were worn away.
During the last 5 minutes of this piece,
it felt like smart cards of neuroinformation
were being inserted into my vertebrae.
All I can say is that these affects appeared
to happen all on their own, there was
no conscious decision: it was almost like
someone had "cracked" my back
The second piece, "Sphere of Origins"
is 13 minutes seemed to draw me down and
further inside my energy to a place where
bioenergy seemed to appear ex nihilo (out
of nothing.) I then noticed that I
was somewhere inside my cranium. I was
aware of the tension in my skull and it
was being "frothed" away by
some arcane process whispering in my ear.
It was almost like having had cotton in
one's ear, but someone puts some hydrogen
peroxide in there and the bubbles clean
I wondered if I had put the blockages
there in order to not be aware of the
inner voices. at the mid-point of the
piece, I then found myself focusing on
my heart chakra and the voices there.
A melting sensation then set in and I
found myself yawning and becoming very
relaxed as if about to fall asleep. I
figured I might be trying to sleep as
a way of not being immediately aware of
the information. for a few moments, I
did seem to nod off and had a short fantasy
about being arrested (which i've never
been and, so, theoried that i was arrested
in some kind of personal developmental
line.) just as I reached this conclusion,
the piece faded out.
The last piece, "Sphere Of Evolution,"
is 26 spectacular minutes of exotic divine
synthesis on par with David Parsons' most
sublime Tibetan astral travels.
I don't think I can describe this piece
adequately. Lots of incandescent gas in
a realm completely off the human scale
with gigantic structures that seem to
instigate fundamental transfigurations.
I don't see any processes which create
orderly progression but rather transdimensional
metamorphoses from which "order"
appears to be occuring from natural settling
rather than active selection. Everything
seems to fit into place, looking at it
from this angle....and then i'm fitting
into place as it were, moulding into a
perfect fit with the overall structure.
I want to drift into it and slumber....it
is like there is an avalanche of information
that my conscious mind can't grasp, it
wants to get out of the way and let the
unconscious processes integrate it.
The final 8 minutes are so mysterious
- they must be analogues of the selection
process - but I seem to be in the Spell
of Nature. It is not a feeling of doom,
but a feeling of cosmic gravity quite
profound and necessary. I'm struggling
to stay awake, to get a peek through the
door....to pierce this dark machinery
of change and see through to the radiance
and brilliance I know is there....I'm
dancing around a fire with other tribe
members; there is fire and the surrounding
darkness.... tall reeds lit by the moon
and the flicker of the firelight....We
are dancing the change awake.
My current theory is that this album is
dedicated to the titanic forces of Transformation.
My own lack of clarity shows up in the
abreactions I was experiencing, particularly
the intense sleepiness and the incoherence
evident in my attempt to describe what
I was hearing.
What I CAN tell you is that this disc
is loaded with spiritual information on
a very high level which is about, basically,
how everything changes but Change itself,
and none of us are exempt from inevitable
transfigurations of our own being.

AUDIO PERMUTATIONS REVEAL WONDERS OF CREATIVITY
AND FULFILLMENT .
completion of our odyssey through these
unique soundworlds of multidimensional
music, we encounter this just-released
double disc delight !
While the set is entitled, "Inspiration,"
it is fair to point out that the first
disc has that title, while the second
is "Ascension." this review
covers the first one.
While new CDs continue to accrete around
me as if I were some strange attractor,
I must admit that my main focus has been
in this set, so I really have a backlog
of regular discs begging for my attention.
But I can't help it! This stuff is so
delicious. I bet if you went through
all my reviews you would find at most
one usage of the phrase "ear candy,"
and that would be appropriate since I
would have been unconsciously saving it
for Multidimensional Music. Not that it
is all that sugary, syrupy or in any case
pabulum or, as I've been known to jest
"sonic velveeta." No: it is
just that once one grasps the vibe of
what is happening you are simply drawn
back to it again & again. Not addictively,
as one might guess, but like bees to nectar.
You feel nourished by something intrinsically
While there are numerous artists that
do this -- Hammer, Bernhardt and Mazuy
immediately come to mind -- What I really
like about this is that while been radically
beautiful, it is also relatively situation
neutral. It is as much amenable to stillness
as to movement, without relying on rockbeats
or drumming to engage activity."Inspiration,"
is a great example of this.
First of all, it is nontemporal in
the sense that it is great for mornings,
high noon, afternoon, evening and late
night. It really is timeless compared
to much music of this nature.
Secondly, while seeming to be relatively
simple in its construction, the more you
listen the more there is to listen to.
Remarkable. And while it is titled "Inspiration,"
I almost think the title, "Mastery,"
would be appropriate.
The opening piece, "Ballade Spherique"
is a curious four minutes of classically-based
synthwinds which are "twiddling"
in such a way as to create a quixotic
or quizzical (?) mood, which is searching
yet playful. Jacotte has several short
pieces of this nature which create an
emotional atmosphere without using any
cliched phrasing to telegraph what, exactly,
the mood being described actually is.
One finds oneself simultaneously focusing
attention on trying to determine what
mood or emotion is being described while
also being bemused by its apparent casual
Following this, the nine & half
minute "Golden Light" is
a beautiful heavenly environment similar
in color and flavor to a favorite Raphael
track of mine, "Like An Endless River"
(from the album of the same name.)
A sonic spiral seeming to glide effortlessly
through a tunnel of Light towards the
outer climes of Infinity. There is
golden Light here, along with a deep royal
purple infused Light. We sail in curves,
swathed in diaphanous streamers of incandescence.
The feeling is deeply satisfying. This
would be an immediate pick for radio airplay.
The title song " Inspiration"
is immediately more oceanic, but the substance
we are floating in is slippery like mercury.
The deep purple slowly lightens up to
a pastel and there is silvery-grey Light
throughout; not metallic, but almost a
finely granular crystalline mist that
is evenly dispersed. This mist becomes
a bright silver and brilliant Light begins
peeking through here and there. Then we
are really in liquid mercury, the curls
of which are filamented with the Light
Divine, bathing in an occult intelligence.
Glimmers of nascent ideas dart about...
"Gratitude" is a fourteen&half
minute journey down into the inner recesses
of the Unconscious.
The shimmering Void reveals itself to
be an energetic plenum of absolute potential
brimming over with never-ending, ever
new galaxies of conceptual form.
Like a transuniversal womb continually
birthing new children, it is continually
opening to greater depths which are ultimate
heights at the same time.
We discover our own nativity in this Vastness
deeper than space which is simultaneously
within us and coursing through us. It
becomes clear that WE are the nascent
ideas, the stars of forever, and there
is a feeling of knowing we are Home and
The epic final piece, "Soma,"
immediately conveys a devotional temperment.
A sky full of newborn stars winking into
existence like one lightbulb after another
popping on above our heads. A gentle
love swirls throughout, caressing our
soul and reminding us of the continuous
support and aid which is each of our birthright
and freely given to us from each moment
to the next as we journey through these
lifetimes of co-creativity and struggle
to achieve the dream of love without end
in this realm of beginnings and endings.
There is a feeling of having come full
circle, of reaching the mountain top and
finding ourself already there. it is triumph,
homecoming and release all at once.
I write these words to try to describe
my impressions of music that is really
beyond language and truly from the Beyond.
however cleverly I might seem to be doing
this, it always seems to me that my attempts
are partial to my own meager ability to
sense these things and in this way i only
convey one aspect of a glittering jewel
that always has one more side to it.

CULMINATING MASTER STROKE ALBUM
When one thinks of what an album entitled,
"Ascension," would sound like,
it seems natural to assume that it will
be light and airy, with flutes and harps,
moving into ever more rarefied atmospheres
of rainbows, aethyric faerie mysts, and
aurora borealises supreme. The 4-disc
set, "Music For Ascension" by
Michael Hammer, the "Ascension Harmonics"
album by Richard Shulman and Samuel Welsh,
the classic albums, "Novus Magnificat"
and "Aeterna" by Constance Demby
(perhaps the primary spirit music composer
associated with the Ascension mysteries,
and, yes, I will throw in the Yes album,
"Keys To Ascension" (I'm actually
referring to the studio recordings of
that release which were later compiled
as the horribly named release, "Yestudio,"
which is, as far as I'm concerned, the
ACTUAL "Keys To Ascension,")all
have in common an unabashed positivity
and Light- orientation in which Darkness
and Shadow are completely preempted in
a glorious Vision of the Triumph of Light.
(I admit that Hammer DOES have a piece
in the afore-mentioned set entitled, "Within
The Void," but it is a Void brimming
over with Light and Manifestation.)
I'm reminded of the extremely bright recordings
by Elizabeth Claire Prophet, who turned
out to have a rather disconcerting dark
is why it is so remarkable to come upon
an "Ascension" album which uses
a different symbolic language, one which
is rooted in a quantuum consciousnes
in distinction to the previously mentioned
mythic modalities which involve galactic,
inner aethyric planes or tribal family
concepts and metaphors.
From the titles of the compositions
to the mood of the pieces themselves,
we are drawn into a mysterious realm where
there is cleansing and transformation
occuring continuously at radically minute
levels. This album, to me,
is not about the Victory of Light over
Shadow, where the darkness is obliterate
or simply aesthetic counterpoint; no,
this is about bringing Shadow to the
Light of awareness, infusing Light into
Shadow, transmuting Shadow to Light.
Rather than a final victory, we are
exposed to an on-going ultimate process
of transmutation and metamorphosis.
The eight minute, "Vortex,"
begins with what seemed like the nesting
behavior of some gargantuan primordial
avian, perhaps the sunbird.
This splicing together of the threads
of the nest becomes the whorl of the golden
section spiral, a toroidal whirlpool that
enlarges to a darkening galaxy-sized object
within which we are being drawn down and
forward by means more tidal than suctional.
This is a very pleasant gliding down and
in, which ends in a moment of arrival
and focus, before we finds ourselves suspended
in a sea of stars.
"Plasma" is a 15-minute sonic
silly putty.The starry firmament begins
to expand in an elastic way in which everything
is moving away from everything else. There
is again this feeling of being "stretched
out," as if prone on the surface
of a balloon which is being blown up.
I would call this medium liquid starlight
except elasticity is much more emphasized
than laminar flow. I usually think of
the plasma in outer space as being incandescent
fluid electro- magnetism, like liquid
lava only completely energy. For the first
time, I am wondering if this might be
some stellar substance analogous to our
There is Light here, but it is more like
finely granulated fluid jewels rather
than glowing hot molecular gas clouds.
There is a sense of one's bodily mass
being replotted and slightly expanded
to better match up with the corresponding
holon template coordinates. A peaceful,
immense ocean of slowly undulating liquid
Things become even darker and more
Void-like in the nine and a half minute,
"Ether." We are first taken
deeper down into starless space with possibly
some molecular clouds in the distance.
There is much less Light here. We seem
to have passed inside of a membrane to
a more secluded area. We are moving
forward to an area where there is activity.
This activity is coded at the third eye
and the crown chakra, so it is hard for
me to describe it. These are shadowy
move- ments occuring across a vast area,
but whatever is producing the movements
can only be seen in fragments. What can
be seen is movement that is familiar to
all different forms of animal -- insectoid,
amphibian, reptilian, mammalian, avian
and so forth -- yet one cannot piece them
together into coherent bodies. It is more
like they are embodied processes. This
area is quite dark and only outlines can
be made out. I'm thinking we're in the
Unconscious looking at processes being
worked out. Suddenly, there is a cohesive
movement and it seems the entire scene
is coalesced into a single large crystal
tone resonating in the Heart.
The 16 minute title song, "Ascension,"
then follows. In the previous music
descriptions, I have not mentioned the
presiding emotional characteristics of
my listening experiences with this album,
of which this song is the exemplar: feelings
of Mystery & Unknowing, joined with
Discovery & Awe and some - a little
bit - of Trepidation at moving through
spaces so clearly off of the human scale.
This piece is revelatory. Now what was
occluded is revealed. In this wise,
it could be an audience with the Divine,
or a return to awareness of repressed
Shadow material (I got a healthy jolt
of the latter.) I kid you not. Like
a sonic "purge" button, that
blows out the ballast, this song rather
describes an Unveiling process in which
even the Veil is of a purpose.
"Cosmic Power," the 12 minute
concluding piece, is the gentle infusion
of the Light of the occluded One. This
is done in a subtle, understated way in
which Light is slowly influxed into one's
energy-body (reminding me of the indirect
golden light of the temples of magian
traditions.) The emphasis is clearly
on the miraculous healing power of the
One Light, in contrast to the typical
"ecstasy of brilliance" one
encounters in Ascension musics, where
one attains the pinnacle of the spiritual
mount or summit, dazzled and ravished
by the intensity of pure divine Light.
Instead, this is a teaching on ALLOWING
Light to influx gently into one's personal
form, to fill the vessel with a radiance
commensurate with the vessel's current
adaptation abilities to comfortably manage
my experience of this album is that it
is clearly NOT the typical Ascension angelic
motif of travelling upwards to the aethyric
climes of Light, but it is rather a subquantum
journey deep into the universal unconscious,
where we encounter our Shadow and the
One which is occluded by its umbra.
This album, then, uses metaphors of bringing
radiance up from deep within in order
to emanate within our ordinary realities.
It is also about encountering Shadow material
and resolving it gifting it, infusing
it with Light.
As the culmination of the entire series,
"Ascension," quite excellently
summarizes and crystallizes the lessons
of all of the multidimensional music releases,
giving them a node point around which
they constellate nonlinearly.

LATEST FROM FRENCH COMPOSER IS
A MEDITATIVE MASTERPIECE !
I have written
extensively about the music series entitled,
"Listening To The Self, Restoring
Wholeness," by Jacotte, of which
this album is the ninth and most recent
"Reconciliation" has the soft
mellifluousness of her earlier work, "Silent
Light," -- one of my favorite discs
to have on as i sleep -- and expands on
the themes of spiritual development which
emerged in her two previous albums, "High
Spaces," and the 2-CD "Inspiration."
This is her most meditative disc to date,
consisting of 5 relatively long works
which maintain a constant emotionally
soft, meditative environment while each
performs energy realignments specific
to its vibrational shape.
It is almost as if the grandeur of the
celestial sweep of the Shasta Ascension
composer Michael Hammer had merged with
the profoundly intuitive, transformative
insight of Australian synthesist Marcey
Hamm, and together they
explore the deep meditation vistas forged
by David Parsons in his sound paintings
of Tibetan meditation.
Jacotte's mastery of the medium is evident
in one's continuous sensual, emotional
and intellectual pleasure of being effected
by these mysterious sounds.
During one of my deep listenings of this
recording, i found myself spontaneously
imagining three circles vibrant with the
primary colors -- blue, water; red, fire;
yellow, air -- merging to form brown which
deepenend into black. and the visualizing
them as if on a tv set, merging into bright
white. it seemed to me as if this music
was dissolving the boundaries represented
by these colors -- blue, emotion; red,
spiritual; yellow, mental; brown, physical
-- and that I was actually experiencings
these dissolving boundaries, mergings
and new unions which the colors simplistically
represented. we usually think of the philosophical
reconciliation as that of black and white,
material and spiritual, mind and heart,
and so forth.
I felt like Iwas experiencing a complex
process like that, but it felt very simple
Lightworkers and those who love angelic
music will greatly appreciate this album.
People who enjoy the previously mentioned
artists should too! Those looking for
a pleasurable meditative soundscape which
also encourages mental attitude softening
and healing of the emotional body should
also definitely check this out!

Reconciliation description track by track
( NOTES FROM THE THIRD LISTEN )
The opening piece, “Reconciliation,”
begins in one’s solar plexus with
familiar meditative environment, close
and comfortable, like sitting in your
favorite chair. Quite soon, within two
minutes, this opens up like a veil parting
into a much more cosmic realm that stimulates
the third eye and becomes increasingly
celestial-angelic until by the fifth minute
we have jetpacked up to rather dizzying
Amidst all kinds of numinous gases and
electrifying twirlies, space opening depth
charges begin to expand the chambers of
one’s heart like small explosions
The final third of this piece is a flooding
of the body and its fields with love flowing
out from the heart in all directions.
By the end, one’s entire energy
envelope has been softened with love.
“To reconcile” means “to
bring together again.” Mystically,
this means to heal one’s orientation
of being somehow separate from the Divine,
the Universe, our living planet, Gaia,
and the various beings living within the
is often generalized to mean alleviating
the tension between the Materialistic
and the Noble (which I use to include
not only the Spiritual, but also Holistic
and Holoarchic values, Ethics and the
various big words akin to Justice, Fairness,
Care and so forth. Mythically, this is
often deficiently depicted as the separation
of the One into its two children: a good
one and a bad one. The are ASPECTS of
The solution offered here is that of flooding
the body with Light; the reciprocal of
which is the body incorporating Light
into its’ structure.
The second piece, “Compassion,”
begins more forthrightly in the Heart
than the first piece, which starts with
the solar plexus and morphs it into Heart.
This piece begins with a strong constellation
of emphasis in the Heart. This then builds
connection to the head, the third eye
and crown chakras, with the introduction
of a plucked or struck stringed instrument
which sometimes sounds like a clavinet
and other times like a plucked harp. Soon,
an angelic atmosphere is invoked with
synthstrings and starlight crown chakra
twirlies reminiscent of the Ascension
environments of Michael Hammer, but dreamier
in a way that is part of Jacotte’s
signature sound. Soon,
we enter the main
part of the piece which is a long dialogue
between the Heart on one side and the
third eye and crown on the other side.
A mid-to-high theta state ensues within
as the backdrop to this communication.
It is like etheric packets of information
are being traded back and forth. The packets
are encoded with a symbolic code language
which is integrated, modified and retransmitted.
This is the main part of the composition.
It is a two minute intro period followed
by ten minute of theta dialogue. In the
last few minutes, the murmur of the ocean
waves become more pronounced.
The sound of the waves seems to dissolve
the encoding into the etheric substance
of one’s body.
“In The Heart Of Love”
begins with a more Void-like mood, with
a strong stimulate of the base chakra.
This is a low-theta, high delta headspace,
right in the twilight between dream and
musing. At the time, I felt attracted
to the delta wave, so I allowed myself
to fall asleep into it.
The environment is deep space, a flowing
continuum in which there is what seems
to be like a strange chirping of crickets
mixed with wet innertubes rubbing together.
This is actually a speaking voice. One’s
brain seeks out patterns in the noise.
This may not even happen consciously,
but in the back of the mind. In the last
few minutes, I started out of my sleep,
having clearly heard a voice say, “Do
some honest work or tomorrow more of the
is an interaction with the innerdimensionals.
The piece begins in the solar plexus,
but then builds a connection with the
throat chakra, which is the corollary
sensing apparatus for the fifth plane,
the transdimensional matrix through which
cosmic beings traverse dimensions. The
healing beings of shamanic tradition sail
their ships through here, as do ET-like
The business and inscrutability of the
fifth plane, the throat chakra and the
energies keyed to them are some of the
most fascinating realms of inward experience.
A vortex portal is opened up and the UFOs
and the Healing Ferries traverse the expanse.
We are greeted by whoever beings are to
participate with us and then an intense
reprogramming of the fifth auric layer
of the body ensues. This is conducted
crisply, professionally and at length.
The final piece, “Celebration,”
portrays strong feelings of liberation
and empowerment. Keyed to the top of one’s
head, it is a strong crown chakra cleansing.
The celebration here is expressed as joy
and thankfulness. This piece is more joyful
than festive, like simply enjoying being
alive today on the very day that one is
no longer a slave or no longer imprisoned.
Even if one is just hanging out, being
quiet, it is a celebratory occasion.
I note that the Latin root compound for
our word “celebration” is
celebrare, to frequent. I believe that
this song suggests that one should frequently
with the crown chakra frequencies, to
frequent their climes of love, peace and
bliss. To frequent the frequencies.

GORGEOUS SOUND WHORLS FROM THE OUTER REALMS !
Rapturous resonances of amethyst, violet, indigo & brilliant white reel from this recording like organic nuances from perfumed inner realities unseen.
Joyousness and bliss supreme waft through one’s soul as the music carries the listener deep into psychic spaces of healing and communion.
As usual, I had to play this album by Jacotte repeatedly before I was actually able to hear it, because it kept rendering me unconscious via powerful sedative resonances which induced deep dream processing. The only way I actually was able to sit through it and analytically follow what was happening was by drinking a strong cup of Hana Maui organic coffee [yes, it requires the good stuff] and sitting erect in a straight back chair.
My first impression is of course recognition of the song I hear just before I pass out.
It is definitely in the low theta / delta range and has some recognizable features similar to her previous work that helps me to settle in and find my bearings...kind of...
“Prayer” is reverent and gentle with a playfulness that is disarming and enchanting without being giddy.
One finds oneself mildly smiling and relaxing into it. There is a feeling of satiety and safety which right away invokes the relaxation response.
A seasoned listener also has to appreciate how clean the production is, providing sharp outlines where they should be while also allowing boundaries to merge where the sounds are conveying us.
This is one of Jacotte’s great assets I’ve notice of late: to give you a very clear sound pocket to reside within so that it is easy to let your full body auric field resonate to rather high and subtle vibrations.
The second piece, “Inner Dance” is keyed right at that delicious place where violet and pink overlap.
There is a repeated tapping right in the third eye [I think this is what knocks me out.] it is a delta wave, sleep.
The synthesis environment is luscious & languid, providing an oceanic feeling of comfort. I feel much more in pale violet now, with sparkling amethyst suggesting itself at times. I try to identify where this music has taken me emotionally.
It feels like caressing Care, like receiving the patient loving ministrations of an experienced healer. Like a Love regardless of what I’ve done.
Even shimmering with caffeine, the last four minutes of this 14 minute piece are making me drowsy, feeling like healing energy is pouring into me. We’re in a range familiar to me from the listening to all of the dolphin recordings I have done in the past. I becomes a deep lucid gold. Wow....
“Transcendence,” the third piece begins with choir voices powerfully invoking the higher harmonics of amethyst, aquamarine and brilliant white.
Yes!: this is where I like to go! Choir and strings bring the firmament incandescent, with the flashing brilliance peeking through then fully revealing. It is intense!
After getting fully blasted by the bright beyond white, we are scintillating with sanctity.
The choir brings us then to the Heart level, to communicate that we are loved and are responsible to Love all that we are.
The fourth song, “Tendresse” immediately darkens into a deep indigo; a pronounced change from the high vibration intensities we’ve just encountered.
We’re deep into blue and indigo, and encountering vibrational realities on inner planes often seeming inscrutable and weird to those not familiar.
This is the Buddhic or Causal level of the Masters [many of whom have energies and embodiments somewhat bizarre by human standards] and the Subtle level of the Archetypes & Divine Energies.
This song seems to touch on the relationship between the throat and the third eye, the Causal and the Subtle, that I am still processing and cannot explain as of yet. Vision & Voice....I recently read, and this might be related, *when your Practice is your Praxis, then you are getting somewhere* [when you actually do the behaviors of what you profess to be the underlying values of your spiritual beliefs.]
The final composition, “Reunion” takes us into Deep Space. This is perhaps fitting as we are now confirming how utterly off-the-scale VAST the Multiverse IS. Reunion is to be whole again. We find ourselves in a Cosmic Ocean of Infinity where immense processes and minute nuances constantly intersect and transmutate.
One might feel lost and tiny if wounded by this knowledge. This concluding piece describes to me a Mystery Radically Present to each of us in the dream of separation. I think it likes you :DARV !
Jacotte Chollet continues to produce intriguing and uplifting music, and I think she is still discovering new things, growing new ideas. Quite an interesting process to behold. Her peers in this area of Visionary music, like Marcey Hamm, Constance Demby or Michael Hammer, have not been too active recently so it is very cool to see these vibrant new recordings.
This new release ESSENCE has a truly joyous quality and strong healthy vibration that allow me to unreservedly recommend this to all lovers of Visionary Synthesis

CD COSMIC HEART
Multidimensional Music, 2012
This album is not a delicate vision of some incredibly fragile crystalline connection with a distant divinity, but rather it portrays energies showing up and work being done: Cleansing & Purifying, developing Resolve to Engage & Transform the Adversities of Life and Self Love by Identifying with Divine Universe.
First track, "Spiritual Origins," is rather an evocation of sacred healing energies. It's space music with a deep soulful, nurturing atmosphere. The portal which the sound opens up allows an entry flow for the traveling space healing agencies from the Soul Planes. The energy-presences emerge, as it were, outward from the inside and the air seems to fill with an ancient, wise presence. There is high-level spiritual information processed from the inside outward, relating an old, old story that is felt not spoken. Have encountered this presence before. The Ancient of Days. It is here with the Healing Angels from the Interzone. The first healing is to Cosmic Memory.
The second track, "Ourobouros," features a sequencer pattern that races up and down the spine in tandem with a siren-like synthvoice which seems to create a whorl at the third eye, conveying a deep intuitive wisdom one often senses around gifted healers.
The third track "Pure Energy," is a purifying/cleansing rhythm reminding me of the churning of the Ocean of Milk at the beginning of the Vedic creation story.
"We Are One," the fourth track, sort of sets down a vibrational grid that evens out all the extra space that has been created by shaking everything up so that the space is spread out through one's energy envelope. It then initiates a process whereby the body can tap into the energetic aspect of this available space, apparently drawing chi or life force directly from space.
The last track, Cosmic Heart, amps the energy up several times so one can really charge the system. this process also begins an integration of intense cosmic energy which seems to coalesce around the basic topic of the immense transformative power of the awakened individual and its realization of its identity with Divine Universe. The rhythm in this composition is much like the heartbeat and blood pumping. It would seem that this is immersion into the Pulse of the Cosmic Heart.
Jacotte Chollet has created, with "Cosmic Heart," a delightful album of multi-dimensional visionary synthesis.
Because of the transformative intensity of these vibrations, the reader should understand that being exposed to them will probably initiate deep internal processes best suited to private contemplative and therapeutic settings. Some passages in this body of electronica may be somewhat challenging, as being subtly encouraged to take Responsibility, face the Shadow content and Love oneself as one is Loved by Divine Universe
