The album began February of 2009 with a vision, planting seeds, and watching the growth of musical sculptures. Musician, composer and producer Mark Reynolds creates and collaborates with musical copilot and drummer
Brian St. Pierre lends precision of hip-hop backbeats to improvisations. Percussion virtuoso Doug Perkins (David Lang, Steve Reich) also lends his talents, performing vibraphone on the title track. As a chronicle of sonic expression, it illuminates the game crucial to understanding the magic behind sharing the gift of sound.

Prismatic Mantis is the sonic vision led by composer, multi-insrumentalist and producer Mark Reynolds whose homogenously progressive material flickers between downtempo electronica and slightly left-of-center fusion rock. In collaboration with artists near and far, Prismatic Mantis is strongly influenced by Nature, Sacred Geometry and the Cosmos. ... more

Track Name: The Core's Light
Oh Sun, Giver of the Core's Light
Mirrors Truth smiling eyes Beyond
Sight, as you rest I give as you.
Track Name: Forgiveness
You are Light from the Sun.
The Gold Age has begun, all that's left
of you breath will be.
As I forgive the sea, I forgive me.
Pull my heart into strings,
Connect them to all things.
Can you feel? This is real.
Your dream falls
into a sand grain who sings.
Track Name: DreaMania
Bliss blows a breeze lovely and strange.
It's hard so we guard from the pain.
Lean into the sword you thought was ice,
as your inner flame ignites.
Let go of everything in between
your world and the You unseen.
Are you about to have a break through?
Has your heart begun to smile?
Connect with what turns seeds into trees,
a call into what you are.
Every body in the sky
always holds us in the night.
