About Buddha Bomb (Rhythm Sanctuary, KGNU, Family Moons)

Buddha Bomb was born in our Solar System on the planet Neptune. Meanwhile, at the same time on Earth, it was the 22nd day of February. Friday afternoon. Quarter past 5. Just in time for Happy Hour.

Once living the life of an American Hippie, Buddha Bomb experienced just about everything Imaginable, and many things Unimaginable. He was one of the first students at Naropa Institute in Boulder. Buddha Bomb traded long hair and a beard for Buddhist teachings and a meditation cushion. After meditating in Holy places for many years, his heart and mind were open. Buddha Bomb heard Techno Music with the power to transform consciousness. Buddha Bomb's calling became louder. And we are all fortunate for that.

Explorer DVD
The Explorer DVD was selected for the first Video Lounge at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. The exhibit "showcased some of today's global avant-garde video artists." The Tanner/Billard visuals and music are an extension of the pioneering video art form of Dorothy Tanner and Mel Tanner (1925-1993), beginning in 1978. It is rooted in the live visual performances that began in the Lumonics Light and Sound Theatre in 1969.

You can watch the videos on The Explorer web page.
