Profile of the performer Julian Abelar: Julian Abelar taps into the possibilities of dance music for the now. His music is an excavation of ancient practices aimed at stopping the world. Julian brings with him from the mountains of Sonora a systematic sequence of soundscapes to reacquaint the body with the energy surrounding it. As he moves through a number of initiatory rhythms, the listener/seeker acquaints himself with the hidden dimension of inner space. All movement is inward, towards the source. Julian uses a combination of sounds that are neither organic nor synthetic but end up fulfilling both extremes and the spectrum in between. Pineal beats with a shamanic bounce.
