Paul Masvidal from Cynic

Mythical Human Vessel is a trilogy of records written and performed by the songwriter and guitarist Paul Masvidal.


“These are songs of healing and transformation." says Masvidal.

Each song on MHV uses 'Isochronic Tones' designed by Dr. Stephane Pigeon, creator of the Brian Eno-celebrated website MyNoise. The tones are a groundbreaking type of sound therapy for increasing serotonin, alleviating depression and stress, improving focus, and aiding in restful sleep. "Mythical Human Vessel" is intended as “an inherently relaxing listening experience, and adding the tones multiplied the benefits,” Masvidal says. “More serotonin for all!"

I saw some photos recently that roused nostalgic thoughts around the years I played with Chuck and his band, Death. We met through a mutual friend in the underground tape trading scene in the 80's and connected around music, guitars, smoking grass and a mutual love of animals. In 1989, while I was still in high school, Chuck asked if I could perform dates with the group in Mexico City. I had about a week to learn over a dozen tunes, and off we went. Although I had already played numerous gigs with my other group Cynic by then, flying to Mexico City and performing for a sea of insanely ravenous fans at a sold-out arena was mind-blowing for a teenager. On that trip, we did a record store signing and performed live on a Mexican TV show (this video is edited moments from that). Little did I know then that just a few years later, we’d be making the album ‘Human' together, along with Sean Reinert and Steve DiGiorgio. In the song “Pull the Plug,” Chuck sings from the perspective of someone on their death bed being kept alive by a machine: “What has now been days, it seems like years; to stay like this is what I fear. Life ends so fast, so take your chance and make it last.” When I read those words, I'm reminded of the many people I've sat bedside with at the threshold of death, haunted by the fear that they did not live a meaningful life. How often have we been willing to stretch beyond our limits and change, finding the courage to heal our old wounds and become more authentically alive? Chuck died in 2001, and my lifelong friend and bandmate Sean Reinert died in 2020. Life lasts only a moment. Who we are is consciousness itself, in human form. The task is to keep one foot on the Earth and your head in the cosmos, to tread with a light and spacious heart, and to know that impermanence is part of this experience. I can enter into this world and care for it lovingly, and at the same time know that it is temporary and will disappear, as I will. Life becomes a precious and rare thing when I remember that. —— #deathband #chuckschuldiner #impermanence #teenageyears —— “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” ― Mary Oliver

The 2020 timeline has been a hell of a ride. My hometown of Los Angeles has erupted over the weekend and empaths like myself need to find ways to work with these collective surges of intense energy. Meditation, reading, listening, and rest, seem to help most when processing and healing my own discomfort. I spent the past couple of days binging on the words and writings of #jamesbaldwin . . James is an inspiring, unsung American hero, a warrior of incisive truth, whose fierce intellectual smarts, and bold, courageous heart, provides a voice to ventilate the unjustness of this world. He was also an openly gay man which speaks volumes, considering the time he was alive. James expresses the rage and illustrates the cowardice that is prejudice in American history. Check out the doc, “I Am Not Your Negro”, his books, and lectures. . . Big Pride Love to my global queer fam. Stay present, make art, observe your thoughts, be the change you wish to see. We’re all in this together 🙏🏽🖤🏳️‍🌈👁🔥👁 . . #americanhero #justiceforhumanity #gaypride #onelove #interdependence #mayallbeingsbefreefromsuffering #raiseyourvibration Art by @ferreyralui
