What is the “Temple of Now” you may ask? Being ambiguous, it’s going to be different for everyone, but it may be best described as a “focal point in time,” similar to music in this sense. But, then, which focal point are you talking about, for the “now” becomes, in an instant, the “past.” The present “reality” becomes memory, unless a choice is made to maintain the present. So in such a way, a memory can become the present focus. Through our choice the ever-fleeting present moment can be the focus, or so can an abstraction, as the imagined becomes reality. And this is the goal of this band - to journey through focal points in time, musically and abstractly, transferring the imagined to reality. Whose reality you may ask? Who knows, for certain!
