New Album They Architect The Stars out now.
New Podcast Claudine West Talks’s Music featuring Claudine (Earth Tree Healing) and Ian Timothy (LizianEvents)
They Architect The Stars by Earth Tree Healing is an album of Sci-Fi ambient/electronic music tracks by composer/multi-instrumentalist Claudine West. Released April 12th 2020.
Growing up on the films and tv series such as Star Trek, Blake’s 7, Day of the Triffids, Alien (1979 movie), A Hitchhikers Guided to the Galaxy, War of the Worlds, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Star Wars, The Day The Earth Stood Still, Planet of the Apes, 2001: A Space Odyssey (Trivia- Wally Veevers – Claudine’s Auntie’s Father, was special photographic effects supervisor) and many more. (Thanks Dad!) Inspired by a lifelong interest in all things alien, conspiracy, intergalactic. Paralleled with Claudine’s meditative music releases under ‘Earth Tree Healing‘ music. This transforms into less melodic, more atmospheric soundscapes. This album became after Claudine was working on instrumental music for Music Libraries. This is a journey that blends into itself from its beginning to its end.
The album cover is an undoctored photograph of a copper pyramid (made by ‘The Pyramid Lady), with an Atlantianite pyramid within. (made by Erick Henderson at NorthStar Crystals) https://www.northstarcrystals.com/atlantianite

I sat in our healing room. The dowsing rods, from The Pyramid Lady answering questions. Pointing to the Mac, then back to me. I like to check in with them now and again. I was planning to take a break from composing Earth Tree Healing music for a few months… to recharge, not that it tires me out. Clearly 2 weeks of the lurgy, weird dreams that come with it and a shot of Night Nurse and that…was my break.
There is intermittent beatboxing coughing in the house. Frankly I’m sick of hearing it now. (The joys of working on hospital wards and in an open plan office. Excellent virus exposure!) The cats are very much more needy of fuss, as are trying to make both mummies better. Rambo cat has been pouncing on me throughout the nights in bed. But I love him. Tipsy is Queen of the duvet hogging. I’m surprised I’ve not pee’d the bed, as she will not get off easily when she is lying on top of you. In a weakened state where even my toes hurt, moving about was just silly. I feel like I’ve been pummeled by a meat tenderiser. Even Pattie Pops honoured me with a duvet cuddle. Have had far worse, but still a week of feeling pretty ghastly, I could have done without. Wellness is returning slowly.
We’d taken a drive outdoors, had breakfast. Visited the tree planted in Arnot Hill Park for Sarah Louise Kay. Layed roses. She died a year ago suddenly, 26 years old. Ange’s business partner and co-founder of candles and magical herbal incense Fenix Flames
Then a trip to The Real Milk company for some veg, organic milk. Love it there. Donations box.
So spirit guides, powers that be. We’d cancelled a band rehearsal. Don’t want to spread it, nor am I up for drumming quite yet. I sat and though I potter about surrounded by musical things. Played some acoustic guitar – just to check me aching fingers still work. The compulsion to set up a mic was overwhelming. The seed of an idea to make my next recordings very natural acoustically, with an array of instruments had been dormant for a while. Germination time. This channelled.
I’d bought the wooden xylophone from a stallholder whilst performing at Under The Castle festival 2019. The shaker from a stallholder in Portsmouth. The handpan drum – Massive Thank you Pia from Pagan Tribal Gathering.
Why Trees of Kyoto? It popped in my head. May be a past life, future life. It is something bigger that the vessel that I am that created this music. I totally respect it. Definitely want to visit as it looks beautiful in bloom.
My music altar is attracting and honoring such wonderful vibrational energies and creativity. It brings reassurance, law of attraction, comfort and beautiful peaceful moments.
Salt lamps bring warmth the the dark nights of January 2020. Apart from the bathroom. They adorn each room. I love the glow. Great for Reiki and meditation practice.
Christmas Day is the new album (from musician/composer Claudine West) by Earth Tree Healing. I recommend this album should be played during food prep and consumption, merriment, bad weather, good weather. The even it self, leading up to the event and alternatively, any other time of the year if you like the tunes.
I wanted to capture the essence and accompany with music, festive times with family; love, magic, peace, melody and quirky tunes. Building up to customary funky party beats. The creation of Christmas Day came a knocking via my fingers, shot through the door and wanted to be here pretty quickly. Some intense workload as the nights darkened in my home studio.

It’s been a tough 2019 personally. Making the most of quality time spent with loved ones is paramount. In a season that for some emphasizes loneliness, abandonment, desperation, violence. I want to bring light in via music, vibrational inspiration for comfort, relaxation, escape, good feelings. There is beauty in the darkness. Life is worth hanging on to, even when you feel all hope is lost.
Music is my creative comfort. It is good, it is healing. When lack of vitamin D is problematic and supplements are gobbled down daily. It’s the blanket keeping me warm and tucked up with our cats when it is cold, dark, miserable. I do remember white Christmas snowy times when I was a tall tiddler. I would love to wake up to a white out in England. I still do get very excited at snow. Unfortunately climate change and planet evolution has put a stop to that for many years where I live. (I say this now…) I get a tingle when I smell the snow, the metal in the air, the tightness of the chest as icicles form. We don’t tend to get much of it in Nottingham in the Midlands. ‘The Beast From The East’ came and went. Beans in the cupboard, camping stove and candle ready. A few days in this country = travel chaos, panic buying, keyboard warriors in colder countries ‘used to snow’ making sarcastic social media comments. – Yep when you are used to it and the infrastructure of your country is adequate, prepped, maintained and invested in. Then well.. Walking on your scarf.. or just not going out unless you have to… can alleviate the risk that too many ignore. Breakages of the bone kind…Ouch! Get beans in now, fart your way through it.
I used to get over irritated by Christmas albums, I still do. They put me in the ‘anti spirit’ when played over a tannoy..over and over. SAME SONGS OVER AND OVER. Fortunately new ones are appearing. There are only so many words you can rhyme with Santa. So why record one? Well. I’m not an angry person anymore. Maturity and domestic settlement has calmed me. Crying at anything that is sad or animal related is now the norm. I did once think I was a sociopath, but then I SOBERED UP and unleashed raw be-bopping empathy. Gogglebox? Nope Blubberbox.
When music wants to come through, I really do have to let it. My ‘festive channeling’ opened wide! I also wanted to bring something new to the dinner table. A landscape of comfort, happiness, a musical friend to shine a light during dark nights. My memories of growing up with the Xmas magic as and excited child. After putting a glass of milk out and a carrot for Rudolf. We used to try to stay awake on Christmas Eve to sneak a peek at Santa. But like some magical sleeping dust. We never saw our stockings being filled at the end of our beds. My Brother, Sister and I would get up at the crack of dawn. Much gratitude to our parents for these times. We weren’t spoiled like brats, but we were spoiled.
The Xmas morning brekkie. The only day of the year I ate jam on toast. The only day I wanted jam on toast. Followed by chocolate, the feast of pigs in blankets, turkey, roasties, parsnips and veg. The awfulness of brussel sprouts – Love ’em or loathe ’em. A must on the dinner plate. I’d eat a couple to take one foe the team. The after effects fun wise far outweigh the taste. The afternoon kip, the queens speech, the same films every year on terrestrial TV – Yes 5 channels growing up. No Netflix binges in those days.
One December, I’d had the flu. Once I was able to get out of bed I built a small cardboard church. My Dad fitted lights inside. This goes under the tree every year.
This album is for you. It does include some tootsie tapping tunes. the humming melodies. Handle it by listening and sharing. Its success will provide benefit of kindness to our world. Give yourself and the ones around you some Love Light Hope Peace .:. Claudine
