Book of Omens CD release show this Friday!

This Friday at Art Share LA, Daniel Rosenboom will have a CD release show for his new album, Book of Omens.

Besides getting to hear the stellar ensemble featured on the recording (RosenboomVinny GoliaJake VosslerTim Lefebvre, and Matt Mayhall), the performance will feature the live video art of Kio Griffith.

This all ages show starts at 9 (doors at 8), and is $10.

For more info, check out the Facebook event.

Book of Omens is an album of programmatic instrumental music inspired by "an original shamanic myth about the cleansing and reforming of a corrupted universe." While sometimes channeling the likes of early Mahavishnu Orchestra, other times invoking Black Sabbath, and elsewhere recalling Ornette Coleman, the music ultimately takes the shape of something far beyond the sum of its influences.

Though you don't need to read the poem that inspired the album to enjoy the music, it can help add form to the shape of the album's narrativity. You can read it on Rosenboom's website, and follow along if you'd like. The album is out now on Nine Winds Records, and you can find it online on Amazon, Bandcamp, CDBaby, or iTunes.

Here's the address:
