About Fred Clarke Alvarez

Thank you for your interest in my new project on Patreon. My name is Fred Clarke Alvarez. I was born in Peru. Since 1996, with my first experience with visionary plants, I decided to explore and learn more about the world of shamanism. Throughout those years, music and sound became key in my learning process working with visionary plants. I lived in the Amazon and Andes working to create a sustainable eco-community, while learning about the indigenous cosmology. Music became medicine. I play different instruments from ancient cultures of Peru, I produce my own music and I have worked with various artists and institutions. Throughout this journey I found the alchemy of music, visionary plants, indigenous cosmology and psychology become a doorway to heal and learn about myself and the sacredness of life. 

Studying with local master musicians and journeying into the shamanic world of Peru, I learned to play numerous traditional and pre-hispanic instruments, many of them unknown in the western world. However, my intention is not to play these instruments in a traditional manner, but rather to develop intuitive musical possibilities, within a music medicine approach, which I feel are inherent in the instruments themselves. In many of my compositions, I combine ancient pre-hispanic musical instruments (originals and replicas) with electronic atmospheres, blended with sounds of nature. The resulting dialogues further reflects the vision of Andean Soundscapes as music medicine.

Since 2008 I have been invited to participate in international conferences, events and festivals. Today I am integrating my work with studies in psychology from the academic world, and currently studying and practicing Dr. Gabor Maté's Compassionate Inquiry Program, a psychotherapeutic approach to holistic and integrative healing.  

Today, we might be living the great dawn of humanity. A shift in the paradigm we are currently living in. Looking for new possibilities to share my work in these times, I decided to open myself up to share and create new material and content (audio-video) for those who are really interested in my work, want to support it and share the journey. Patreon is a membership platform where people can support their favorite artists and creators directly by becoming actual Patrons (sponsors) of their work. The intention of this membership channel is about sharing my music medicine creations, audios, interviews and videos, contemplating the aspects of the awakening journey, shamanism, indigenous cosmology, psychology and spirituality. I want this channel to be a place for support, connection, community, inspiration and transformation. Your support will allow me to keep creating and sharing this work with you and with other people, and supporting my family as well. Thank you!
