A mirage in a desert of possibilities, Arcosanta is a reverberation of utopian realism and an invitation for new modes of relationship to crises. Warping New Age tropes as a testament to the acidification of oceans and ongoing ecological collapse, Arcosanta casts a shadow across the bankrupt hangover of the Aquarian ā€˜60s, drawing its power from the ecstatic energy of emptiness. Directly influenced by a personal tarot reading and featuring excerpts recorded in a decommissioned Civil War military base, Arcosanta is a sonic reimagining of American transcendentalism and a harbinger of post-capitalist spiritual and emotional balance.
