TAU is the collective brainchild of Dubliner, Shaun Mulrooney. Shaun is perhaps best known for his involvement with the Dead Skeletons and as the “Invisible Man” with Camera.
TAU’s ‘Medicine Music’ was envisioned during a Mulrooney sojourn in Mexico with the Wixárikas, an ancient shamanic tribe whose culture and mythology is immersed in peyote lore.
This music was given substance courtesy of Mulrooney’s alliance with multi-instrumentalist, Cristoph “Tiger” Bartlett of Kadaver, whilst holed up in their Berlin studio.
The 4 track EP title ‘Wirikuta’, derives from the Wixárikas’ sacred site, high in the mountains of central Mexico where their mythology believes the world was born, where the sun or Tau made it’s first appearance.
