This live version of “Voice” without overdubs, edits or studio enhancements is a shimmering, ethereal song, filled with gentle electronic flourishes and a dreamy vibe. Gersten told us that he views recording and live performance quite differently. “Records are like movies and Live Shows are like theatre. Our album has all the beautiful textures and effects that the recording process allows but why try and re-create that for a live performance? In this live video we have a foot tapping instead of a million dollar drum machine. The directness and intimacy offers a different view of the song.”

Then there was this unreal megapolis and these extraterrestrial lights flying everywhere around us.” Trippy.

“The quaternity is the sine qua non of divine birth and consequently of the inner life of the trinity.
—Carl Jung, CW 11, para 125

“Quaternity”, a term coined by the theological teachings of the Process Church of Final Judgment, founded in the 1960s, relates to the existence of four deities: Christ, Jehovah, Lucifer, and Satan. According to their beliefs, the four dimensions possess their own powers of light, strength, destruction, and death—all of which individually challenge each other yet exist together within the pith of mankind.
