For those brave souls heading off to Rainbow Serpent this year here's a little something you might want to check out:
Rainbow Serpent welcomes a new event to the festival- Ascension Engine is an audio visual cornucopia of meditative sound and vision from some of Australia's finest audio visual
experimenters. With sacred frequencies, audio reactive mandalas for meditation, blissful binaural beats and alchemical transformations through sound and vision.
Ascension Engine is a discreet part of the Crystal Mandala and comes alive at 10pm on Friday and Sunday nights until 2am.
