Ben's new album Multidimensional Voice is available for pre-order! 

Release Date: 08/08/2016

Hello Friends,

Multidimensional Voice is an album that I've been working on quietly for well over the past year and a half. This album is not about writing songs, it's not about trying to get on the radio, it's not about anything except allowing myself to express something that needed to be expressed, and honoring the journey of sound & vibration exploration that I've been on for the past several years...learning how to function in that resonance. This was no small undertaking, the full album is currently clocking in at just below 74min, now that I've shaved it down so that I could fit it all onto just 1 CD.

Musically Multidimensional Voice is a bit of a departure from any project that I've ever put together in the past...but this was music that was calling out to me to be made. This is an album that has been created straight from my heart & soul, straight from my own exploration of finding my place on this planet, finding my voice, and my connection to (and exploration of) sound & vibration from a spiritual perspective. I've been pulled towards this sound and the potency of using voice as an instrument without words for sometime now. It's taken me several years of experimentation, and allowing myself to drift into whatever musical whims I've felt, to organically find my way and emerge with this sound, to the point where I can now present it as a cohesive album.

To me this album is many things, but I suppose first and foremost, it is the product of a spiritual exploration that has been deeply connected to sound, vibration, resonance, and voice. This sound came about organically by allowing myself the space to try and understand the potency of that magical combination, a combination that has been used in ceremony and as a mode of consciousness transport by many peoples since before recorded history. Sound is powerful, the power of sound is transcendent. Sound organized into music is an experience that changes your vibration, one that can greatly enhance your life. Uplifting music will uplift your life.

I've recorded this whole album using the tuning of A 432hz. If you are interested in that type of thing, there is a plethora of information out there about A432...and you can always ask me.

I'm hoping to continue in this direction in the coming year, I'm dreaming of landing some soundtrack gigs, and things of such. We will see how this plays out, it's quite a departure in sound from any of my past work.

In kindness, compassion, & hope,

Ben Carroll
