A loose, ever-morphing, music-philosophic collective of largely American, South American, and European academics, musicologists, and music pedagogues, with members currently based in Germany and the Netherlands, formed over the shared study of the teachings of the discreet, Internet-based, non-denominational, spiritual director known to his followers as only Brother Avatar, that they have named Mythos University. Mythos University has grown around the shared online culture based on the global multi-culturalism, radical mutual tolerance, and a catholic sense universal brotherhood, a life-affirming philosophy as expressed in the music of the Mythos Ensemble.
Formed in 2012, and heartily referred to by the larger alumni of the Mythos University proper, as the 'Music Department', the Mythos Ensemble collects together for the first time, the best of modern jazz, global-ethnic music, so-called new age healing music, and 20th and 21st Century Classical music, serving music to the world as art, high entertainment, and deep psychic-social healing mechanisms.
The core collective led by critically acclaimed American jazz-avant guitarist/mandolinist Blake Moses, an alumni of the famed Berklee College of Music, and multi-instrumentalist (Native American flutes, hurdy gurdy, et al/pianist/percussionist (among others, hang drum, tablas, udu claypot) John Brooks, the primary composers for the Mythos Ensemble, and also includes the prodigious young drummer from Italy, Tomaso Calvino, and world renown South American bassist, Jorge Santayana.
0n the behest of Guru Avatar, The Mythos Ensemble withdraws its offering of a feature length album, and now offers singles, EPs,or what Guru Avatar calls, "MICROPICS".
"The "micropic" is essentially the epic in concentrated form".
