The four musicians are the sonic representation of the cosmic beauty and symmetry embodied in the Platonic solids, the classical elements of alchemy, and the symbolic animal spirits whose masks they wear:
- The Rat - Drums
Hexahedron - Earth - The most stable element, the layer on which the other instruments stand.
- The Chimera - Bass/Additional Guitar
Icosahedron - Water - Is complementary to earth and is the most mobile element.
- The Gryphon - Guitar/Production
Octahedron - Air - The water lies on the earth, the air lies in the surface of the water. Constantly flies between melody and noise.
- Doctor Forge - Voice
Tetrahedron - Man - Fire - The most mutable and unpredictable element. It can be a spark or a blaze. It carries the light. It's the lantern in the dark that shows the passageway.
The four Elements together create the Dodecahedron – Aether, void, or quintessence, the most subtle and incorruptible element. The medium of sound, it is inaccessible to all other senses. This is the MUSIC.
