In the interview’s second part, Jaime and I are talking about “Astromusicology”, a special way Jaime uses to set a horoscope into music, to say it the easy way. More about this at THIS LINK.

In order to give you right away a practical example, Jaime set my personal natal chart into music, and you can hear it in the interview, starting at [1:23:44]. CLICK HERE to be linked directly to the right place in the YouTube version)

And here is my natal chart…

Have fun!

Music played in this episode

Our guest, Jaime Paul Lamb, is at the origin of all the music you will hear here today.

The third piece is just one of his all-time favourites, where former lead-singer of The Velvet Underground Nico with her sultry voice and ice-goddess presence put a spell on Jaime 🙂

The other pieces though see the musician Jaime Paul Lamb at work: first we hear him with the vocals and playing a 60’s Vox Jaguar organ with real good ol’ Garage Punk. His band is called “Thee Faded Pyctures”.

And finally, after the interview, that piece is a lenghty natal chard interpretation, like the one he did for Rudolf in the interview. You can find more of that on  THIS LINK (click here).
