Featuring: Jesse Sparhawk - George Wallace - Chuck van Zyl

Jesse Sparhawk: Jesse Sparhawk

George Wallace: George Wallace is an accomplished composer, performer, producer, sound designer, and artist. He is a master creator of visionary music which speaks of enlightenment and positivity to a planet which can really use it.

Fed by spontaneous inspiration and a keen feel for dramatic flow, George creates exotic, atmospheric soundworlds and emotionally rich songs with seasoned, intuitive skill. For over three decades he has worked across a wide arc of genres ranging from popular music to soaring, progressive rock and on into the world of uniquely crafted sonic vistas. Recent orchestral and choral works produced for film and television round out his already substantial body of work.

Chuck van Zyl: Chuck van Zyl is best known as host of STAR'S END (WXPN's renowned radio program of spacemusic dreamscapes) and as coordinator of The Gatherings (Philadelphia's premiere concert series of innovative music). Chuck van Zyl has also been making his own unique style of electronic music since 1983.

During the mid-90's Centaur Discs of Scotland released Celestial Mechanics (1993) and The Relic (1995). These albums compiled many of van Zyl's early cassette releases onto compact discs. In autumn of 1994 Synkronos Music released Regeneration Mode (1994), the famous collaboration between Chuck van Zyl and The Nightcrawlers founder Peter D. Gulch.

In 1992 Chuck van Zyl founded the group The Ministry of Inside Things. Along with guitarist Art Cohen they performed dozens of live concerts in various venues and unique spaces and released three live CDs on the Synkronos Music label: Everlasting Moment (2003), Contact Point (2006) and Ambient Elsewhere (2008).

Recent activity includes a number of live performances both solo as well as in collaboration with Terry Furber and Jeff Coulter. For his 2014 concert at Event Horizon Chuck van Zyl will be joined by synthesist Mike Hunter.

Sometimes referred to as "the children of space", Chuck van Zyl's generation of musicians are more than just carrying on an earlier tradition. Seeing creativity as a component of his own personal spirituality, van Zyl's musical realizations are fueled by everything from music technology to a greater cosmic awareness. His musical sensibilities evoke a sense of discovery, with each concert marking a new frontier of sound.

"Rituals" is the new solo CD by Chuck van Zyl. A follow-up to "MemorySpace" (2010) and "Cenotaph" (2012), "Rituals" (2014) was released by Synkronos Music on 15 November 2014 to coincide with his performance at The Gatherings Concert Series.
