Ancient Harmony to the Moon!

Hello global family!


We are thrilled to share with you an exciting project we are initiating called “Earthlings”, in collaboration with the SETI Institute and composer/ artistic director Felipe Perez Santiago. In this project, we will be collecting, recording and sending the voices of our human family to the moon on the next lunar mission in 2021.

Our job is to record chants and songs from ancient cultures around the world- from the indigenous Americas, medieval Europe and eastern and middle-eastern wisdom traditions. These songs were formulas for maintaining harmony with the circle of life and with the stellar symphony of the universe.

 As time and space are very important factors to the project, the songs will be recorded in sacred spaces at specific times;  the first being an ancient church in the South of France during the fall equinox this September!

The collection will be an offering from our planet of great diversity and beauty. Many voices, one earth—a statement of our unity and a legacy to unknown space explorers throughout time.

The three of us; Lauren, Ani and Sara are musicians and composers from 3 different countries, cultures and generations, and are coming together as a trio to bring these powerful songs back to life.  

This project is entirely voluntary, and our expenses will include travel, accommodation, and recording costs.

We gratefully appreciate any support you can provide.

We will keep you updated as we go forth on the mission! 
Thank you :) 

Lauren, Ani and Sara

LAUREN- www.abonmusic.com Canada

Lauren's passion lies in amplifying the quiet voices in our world- the wisdom of the trees, the tiny ants that know something more about collaboration, the mysterious world of our dreams, and the ancient tales of our ancestors. 

Lauren is a Danish-Canadian singer, songwriter, arranger and producer, beginning her journey first as a ballet dancer, then scientist, and finally grounded herself in music. She studied classical piano, ballet and cello as a young girl, and went on to teach herself guitar, bass and drums. She formed a duo with her younger sister where vocal harmony took her heart, and in 2013, she and two friends formed “The Willows”, a Canadian vocal jazz trio. As composer and arranger for the group, she tapped into her passion for writing close harmonies and interweaving melodies. The Willows released two albums, toured internationally, and their music is featured in several American Hallmark films.
Her musical curiosity continued to grow and she began to explore a new world of sound, under the artist name Abøn: a prayer for harmony.

She was accepted as an artist in residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts,  the National Music Centre in Canada and the Music Conservatorium in the Netherlands. She holds a BFA with honours in Dance Performance from Ryerson University and a Masters in Contemporary Music Production and Performance from Berklee College of Music. 

Lauren is currently releasing music from her new immersive musical experience called “Talon”, incorporating dance, film, and soon projection mapping and holographic art. Her music inspires a connection to the forests and a gaze beyond the stars.
