“Space sister is a song inspired by a woman who lived in El Cajon California who led a group of gentle people. She taughtthem about being of service to others and to spread love and creativity throughout the galaxy. Her simple message resonates with me. These principles help to guide me through life. The video for Space Sister was shot by Vancouver filmmaker R.D. Cane. We tried to capture the spirit of the theremin and the spirit of inter-dimensional peace and understanding. All things that are very important to me. I think we succeeded.”
