Every eight years, when the Earth and Venus 'kiss' to form another petal, Venus presents the same face to Earth: the “Dance of the Planets”.


Samadhi - a word from the Sanscrit language - describes a high level of concentrated meditation where the logical and analytical ability of the being becomes silent. It is thus a space from which music flows, unimpeded by the ego's thought and judgement.

"All is number": So said the great mathematician and spiritual leader Pythagoras. If arithmetic is pure number, geometry is thus 'number in space', music is 'number in time' and cosmology (the ordered movements of the heavens) is 'number in time and space'.

This music celebrates the Quadrivium: the four Liberal Arts of Number, Geometry, Music and Cosmology, studied from antiquity as a means of perceiving the beautiful numerical order that characterizes the universe.
