A Cure for pain in the



The first release from Ecotone

Light-hearted impressions, hopeful musings and motifs. Sample-able and re-mixable, this is the continued development of musical dialogue—a snapshot in time and a window to the heart.

Like the continual and phasic earth-building action of watersheds, Alluvion is a procession. The music evolves and flows through vast sonic terrain—a lo-fi instrumental soundscape to use as a backdrop for navigating your space. Intended for (but not limited to) moments of reflection and introspection, guided meditations, body work sessions, laying on your back with headphones and absorbing the final vibrant colors of autumn, discharging political tension, mending the past, maintaining and discovering the path.

“Paradigm-shifting and culture healing music as resourcing for next-level human stewards of planet earth.”

Elizabeth Wolff
Cultural Healing Facilitator

“The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.”

“I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.”
