TAU joins SpaceFest!2015 line-up 20 October 2015, 20:03

Here’s another confirmed band in SpaceFest! line-up: TAU – a collaborative project spearheaded by Shaun Nunutzi, a member of the fearsome Dead Skeletons. Inspiration for the music was manifested in the desert lands of the Real de Catorce, north-west Mexico. This project is a collage of ideas and trance-induced soundscapes and comes from a lineage of those who are influenced by the psychedelic/psycho-active experience. Themes include animal totems and reimagined indigenous medicine songs aimed at transcending the mind and liberating the spirit.
