WHETHER YOU’RE A BELIEVER OR NOT, THERE’S A WHOLE HOST OF ALIEN ABDUCTEES OUT THERE WHO HAVE LIVED TO TELL THEIR TALES… AND ARE NOW PUTTING THEIR WORDS TO MUSIC
Not many people get to explore the outer edges of our universe or, more specifically, receive contact with beings from other realities. But those who have are collectively known as “experiencers,” contactees or abductees. They’re just like you and me; there’s no such thing as discrimination outside our world, it seems.
Over the past seven years, I have done many interviews both on (and off) camera and radio—starting in 2011 under The Ammach Project, now superseded by The ET Newsroom (ETN)—with a wide variety of intelligent (and perfectly sane, may I add) people from all walks of life claiming to have experienced something extraterrestrial. The people I’ve chatted to include scientists, a retired emergency room nurse, visionaries, ex-military, and other ordinary men and women from all over the world. Through listening to these people’s stories, I’ve come to the inescapable, unalienable conclusion that something is happening by way of contact involving other intelligent life, often non-human, with some of humanity. Extraterrestrials, if you will.
Without a doubt, the contact has had a profound impact on each experiencer I’ve met. Occasionally, they’ve been left with some information—knowledge regarding anything from healing to planetary conditions, and ecology to free energy technologies. It’s often life-changing for them, the facts of these encounters are unassailable to the experiencer, and there’s a wealth of material written about such testimonies.
I’ve spent a lot of my career trying to bring these testimonies to the forefront. In 2016, I co-authored the book, 44: Based on an Ex-Soldier’s True Story of Life-Long Encounters Involving Alien Abduction, with abductee Bill Brooks. It was in 2012, after a series of heart attacks and strokes, that Bill came forward and shared his story. Once a person of entrenched opinion, believing the subject of “alien contact” to be utter nonsense, Bill had a huge shock when, aged 44, a tsunami of memories were suddenly “downloaded” (his words), breaking through to the shores of his conscious mind, playing out every encounter, which he’d “forgotten,” from childhood onwards. These memories revealed a lifetime of UFO abductions and covert military experimentation, plus encounters with Nordics, Reptilians, shadow entities and Grey aliens.
Bill’s story is not for the faint-hearted, nor narrow-minded. Of course, many are skeptical of Bill and an intelligent world beyond ours, and so, over more recent years, another project had been forming at the back of my mind. I’d been searching for something that would serve as a bridge between the public and the experiencer phenomenon so I started a musical project, Eklectia, assisted by experiencer and musician Dug Degnin. It’s a world-first, double-compilation concept album, released in November 2018, featuring original tracks from experiencer musicians and singer/songwriters, some of whom have had astounding one-on-one encounters with other intelligent life.
Eklectia is also non-discriminatory and includes every musical genre from classical guitar to reggae, ambient to sound healing, piano to pop, electric rock and much more. It also features sound bites spoken by the musicians about their experiences; short interviews that include researchers and science-based dowsers, whose evidence of interaction between alien visitors and ancient/modern civilizations is extraordinary. There’s also a comment from former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, who reported seeing a UFO back in 1969. Overall, I like to see it as an eclectic mix of education and entertainment and another insight into the experiences people have had with a different world.
When I interviewed experiencer Chris Bledsoe for the album, he told me about the communication he’d been given to pass on by a female not of planet Earth (some races are similarly male and female, while others are seemingly genderless): “The message is in the music.” I believe that whether or not you receive that message, is up to you.
