On my roadtrip back from Penang, I took a detour off the E1 North South Express way and came off at Tanjong Malim, headed down south towards Kuala Kubu Baru (KKB) on the borders of Perak and Selangor. I was in search of the green hilltop abode of Antares, called Magick River. After numerous phone directions from the man himself, I found myself in what I can only describe as raw tropical rainforest scenery on the road to Fraser’s Hill. Magick River flows strong and fast, and is more than a city getaway for Antares. This area has been his home for over 30 years.
Antares is a very special kind of person. Articulate, headstrong, opinionated and thoroughly in tune with Nature and the Earthsong. This was our first face to face meeting, brief it may have been. You could read his bio here but then, it is perhaps a greater opportunity to meet him, and his home, by the river. Thanks, Antares and thank you for the music.
