The music of Chamber 1 and 2 from the Hakomi Project is nearly an hour-long journey into a musical soundscape that fuses rhythmic vocals and instrumentation into spellbinding compositions.
These are exotic, otherworldly sounds, deriving from a very sophisticated palette of sounds, textures, and moods. Superb vocals are ornamented by deep, harmonic drones, stirring melodies,
and a mesmerizing array of world percussion.

Hakomi is a Hopi word that when translated means: “Where do you stand in relation to the other realms.” This CD release from the WingMakers is truly notable in its compositional flow,
representing a remarkable array of instruments and wordless vocals that are expertly blended into an expression of the inexplicable.

This is the first release of material from the second WingMakers’ site discovered near the city of Cusco, Peru. It follows the release of the four CDs that comprise the Ancient Arrow site, which was discovered in Northern New Mexico. More information about this new site can be found in the Fourth Neruda Interview.

Music from chambers one and two is included on this disc. Each are extensive and compelling compositions with an amazing variety of strong, melodic passages reminiscent of the Ancient Arrow
Project, but also breaking new ground compositionally.

The presence of the Wholeness Navigator is invisible to the human instrument, and, for the most part, is not felt sufficient to induce the behaviors of soul. The higher pathways
of the mind imagine it, capturing it like the wind a seed, and these images can be translated to the emotions and body through music more vividly than any other art form.
