(words & music by Christopher Bingham)

Bone Oracle

She got your skeleton in her pocket
More bones and weighted dice
A ball jack and a razor
And some things that ain’t so nice
She got something she is up to
She got business to conclude
She is older than creation
And she ain’t got time for fools

Do you really wanna see
Some future in the palm of your hand?
What’s it gonna be?
Do you really think you really wanna understand?

Looking for the light
So you think you see
More than shadows on the wall?
Well I’m ready to believe -
If you show me.

She say that everyone’s a stranger
She says “Look into my eyes.”
“Do you see your own reflection
Or the way you’re gonna die?
If you see the world past Monday
Will the future set you free?
You better get your self realcertain
‘cause there’s things you can’t un-see!

What’s it gonna be?
Do you really think you really wanna understand?
Do you really wanna see
Some future in the palm of your hand?

Looking for the light
So you think you’re free?
Well then, show me.

The Story...

"Oracle" came about from my fascination with the image of the Washer at the Ford, or the idea of being confronted by the Goddess as crone, especially in the oracular context. Do you think if you could, you’d really want to know your future? I don’t try to answer the question, but it’s interesting to think about.

The first part of the poem a I wrote a few years ago. The second part (Looking for the Light) I wrote even farther back - around 1985 - and I thought it dovetailed nicely into this piece. I always liked it, I don't know if you folks will or not.

Back in January of 2007 we were splitting a show with the amazing SJ Tucker and I was looking for a voice for the “Hey now!” part. Sooj fit perfectly. She also did fine harmony work on the “Looking for the Light” part.

Arrangement wise, I wanted to go for some of the feeling of Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die" and make something that reflects a bit of the psychedelia that I loved as a young teen in the early 70s... George Martin’s arrangement added such a multidimensional aspect to the tune, and it was ALL over the radio. I don’t think we’d get anywhere close to that kind of sophistication on top 40 these days.

If all goes well, we’ll release the cd sometime close to the early fall of 2007.

Recorded: 2006 Audio Logic, Seattle, WA
Guests/Players: Chriistopher Bingham (composer, guitar, vocals) Sue Tinney (vocals, co-producer) Jay Kenney (keyboards, co-producer / engineer) Dan Mohler (bass) TJ Morris (drums) Larry Golding (violin) Sunnie Reed (viola) Betsy Tinney (cello) Guest Vocals: SJ Tucker

Technical Notes: We're an eight peice band, using all the tools available - on top of the usual acoustric and electruc instruments, we're starting to use a fair amount of sampled instruments as well, including sound libraries such as Stormdrum and Vienna Symphonic Library.

Artist Profile: Gaia (Gaea) 'guy-uh':

* 1) The Greek Earth Goddess and Mother of the Titans
* 2) The autopoietic superorganism that is the living biosphere


* 1) one who shares a common lot
* 2) a ship accompanying another
* 3) spouse / lover
* 4) to make harmony
* 5) a group of singers or instrumentalists performing together

Gaia Consort sounds like a movie sound track for the gathering of the tribes. Include some intelligent lyrics about evolution, sensuality, engaging the natural world, and then throw in a string trio. Imagine Ian Anderson with Peter Gabriel doing a mash-up between So and Thick as a Brick.

Christopher Bingham and Sue Tinney got themselves booked into Nudestock 97 and announced the new name, played some of the new stuff, and the crowd was on it’s feet . In 1999 and 2001 the Consort released Gaia Circles and Secret Voices to critical acclaim in all the major Pagan magazines and a fair number of “mainstream” music journals as well.

Their next CD, Evolve, was released in April 2004 and it continues Bingham’s musical and philosphical explorations within the framework of an expanding Gaian Culture. Friends and fans donated over $17, 000 by “adopting” songs to help Gaia Consort record the disc. Evolve is as much a product of a supportive community as it an individual vision.

Backing Bingham and Tinney are some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest musicians. Gaia Consort’s current line up includes Larry Golding violin, Sunnie Reed viola, TJ Morris on drums, Jay Kenney, keyboards, Betsy Tinney, cello, and Dan Mohler, bass. Bingham is currently recording the next release, "Vitus Dance" due summer or fall of 2007.

Gaia Consort has never been about making it big in the music “industry.” Eschewing the usual venues of clubs and coffee houses, Gaia Consort has managed to quietly build an audience that fills rooms, playing house concerts and self-produced shows in halls around the Pacific Northwest. They’ve built enough of a following to have been invited to play a variety of festivals and events, including headlining the long running Heartland Pagan Festival (2000) in Kansas, and Canada’s Wic Can Fest (2002) outside Toronto, and Faerieworlds Fest (2005, 2006 and booked for 2007) in Eugene OR.Their concert celebrating Evolve filled the 400 seat Meydenbauer Center.
