Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out!

Mark Lotz Trio

A new release by a new Mark Lotz Trio. It presents 10 original tracks with contemporary jazz music influenced by a PSyCHedELIC hypothesis – the ‘eight-circuit model of consciousness’ by Timothy Leary.

Timothy Leary, a prominent figure of the psychedelic 1960s was an American psychologist and writer who pioneered LSD for therapeutic use in psychiatry. He developed the “eight circuit model” of consciousness in his book “Exo-Psychology” (1977). The Eight-Circuit Model Of Consciousness theorizes the eight different stages of consciousness levels. These circuits are the inspiration for the compositions and improvisations.
