The Mechanist & The Star Goddess is a dynamic ritual, music, & dance project with Tempest, Nathaniel Johnstone, and Davis Petterson. The band combines electric violin, heavy percussion, and mesmerizing movement to create a profound sight-and-sound experience. The inspiration and title of the project evokes the exploration of the liminal space between the confines of the precise concrete world and the limitless divine.
