about

A 'dark', romantic, poetic and picturesque portrait of Chiron the Centaur Chief. A collaboration between danish bassplayer/composer Jens Kristian Andersen and painter Rithva Landler - www.jkamusic.com - www.rithva.dk

My primary focus has been to tell the myth of Chiron in music, highlighting the most significant traits of his story and multifacetted character. But it's been a research project as well:
My study went through greek myth and thought with Plato’s transcendant ideas about intuition and astronomy (a planet as a metaphysical essence) and the more empirical Aristotlean immanent approach. I've also been researching the archetypical meaning in mythology, psychology and astrology.

The story of Chiron is exciting and dramatic and full of interesting imagery. It relates very well to our times and we could use some relevant myths as guideposts in the world today, I think. The story can be viewed as a rainbow-bridge prelude in a transition phase in our times moving into the aquarian age.

Anyway, hope you'll enjoy the music! :-)
