Watch for The Release of Symphony
Follow Spirit as she descends to hell, in search for her lost soul. Symphony is as a spiritual romance of self-discovery; a journey into humanity's individual and collective darkness and beauty.
This poetic, twisted, prophetic narrative began
from a musical-trance scribing; as an Avant-Garde blending
of Abulafian-like mysticism with Dada letterism.
Through weaving the spontaneous flowing words with mystical symbolism and minimal interpretation, this post-conceptual narrative
emerged as a surreal story that unfolds in a dark imaginal realm.
"There are great literary works that demand readers meet the authors’ ideas on their own terms. The understanding and wisdom presented in such texts may not be pleasant or easy. But then again, growth seldom is. As the artistic expressions in such works are welcomed and integrated into our collective human consciousness, the treasure house of humanity's Divinely appointed potential may transform the world." (Belle Twigg, author and teacher)
The Creation of Hell's Symphony
It all began one evening in August of 2019, as I (P.D. Meyer) sat with my laptop open in front of me on the floor. I was listening, trance-like, to two friends working on a song. As the keyboardist and vocalist wove together their improvised expression to create a new song, I typed the visionary impressions inspired by their music.
At the end of the first evening I had more than 4,000 surreal words peering back at me from the screen. Words are exactly what they were - not sentences. There was no sense or meaning to the flow. They brought to my mind the turning of Abraham Abulafia and the experimentation of Dada, But as I read the words aloud to the two musicians, I could feel the depth of a narrative fighting its way onto the page.
It was a profoundly moving story of a Spirit who had not only lost her Soul, but had forgotten to live, love and laugh. It was a story that explored the dark shadows of our humanity to uncover the Divine who dwells within us. Like Spirit, the story teeters on the edge of madness and struggles to find expression within the chaos of hell.
As weeks passed and the story gained form, I realized I had an issue. I had no idea how to describe this book to a prospective reader. I spoke out to the Creator of the Universe, "I need to find a professor who is familiar with this, who can tell me what it is that I am doing. I have no idea how to describe my work."
My phone chimed at me, signaling a received email. I cannot express the wonder I experienced when I opened the email. For there, on my phone, was a message from a professor. Now mind you, I had not asked anyone (other than the Creator) for an insight into the project. What was the message that had appeared as an answer on my phone? It was as though the Divine had answered, "Say exactly what it is." The subject of the message said, "Abraham Abulafia Dada Letterism."
As I wove the words into narrative, Spirit worked her way into my dreams, giving me prophetic warning of what was soon to come. I did not know the specifics of the future, only that I needed to prepare. In September we purchased a small cabin and began preparations for the hell I knew would soon spread its tentacles into the world and into the souls of humanity amid an age where old and young would struggle for breath, life, and sanity. Now all that remains for me to do is to share this chilling vision, with the hope that spirits everywhere might avoid the snare of humanity's self-fulfilling prophetic damnation.
A dark, "musical" text; a short fantasy meant to rock souls and transform spirit.
"My Soul is lost in hell!"
Spirit is desperate to find her soul-mate.
In the Other-side of life, Spirit encounters the Symphony of lost Souls and demonic voices. The weaving, musical narrative played for the damned carries Spirit through the underworld. The musicians and their words assist Spirit as she seeks Soul. Along the way, Spirit becomes caught up in the passions of death, love and magic.
P.D. Meyer delivers poetic-like, prophetic novelettes. Glimpses into spiritual realms are shared through lyrics, song and madness. Symphony for Fallen Angels is a narrative of descent and ascent. In these pages, we discover a hell where even the most beautiful spirit may lose her way back to heaven.
While likened to the literary style of James Joyce, Meyer's writing carries the prophetic voice and vision of one who has been to the Otherside of life and returned. In Symphony, convoluted, chaotic turns of phrases, at times seemingly without any reason or meaning, share the author's vision of hell's demonic love and hatred of humanity. The strange unfolding narrative shares a demonic prophecy of mankind who has fallen into a unified collective, becoming hell's heaven and the hellish hope of bringing about the demise of heaven itself.

Hell's Symphony presents a surreal concert, starring heavenly Spirit and the damned Violin.
A surreal musical adventure into damnation reveals to Spirit what it means to be alive.
P.D. Meyer's has given us a divine Spirit coming-of-age tale, that begins in a world of change, wherein a young girl struggles for life as she lies dying in a hospital, with her mind trapped in the hallucinations of hell. Prophetic undercurrents and esoteric revelations are woven into and throughout the musical text, challenging the intuitive and wise to look beyond the surface narrative.
Touches of romantic encounters and entertaining, instrumental characters brighten the dark world Spirit finds herself in. The place of the damned is examined through the narrative of Spirit's adventure. The disjointed lyrics that move Spirit's life forward are kissed by the thoughts and impressions which flow through her mind. While madness threatens to overtake Spirit, she is guided by the fallen.
