Vintage electronic dronescapes from one of Leicester's forgotten sons...
raxil4's dark brooding dronescapes combine analog and digital sound sources, including field recordings, detuned radios, analogue televisions, computers, turntables, CD & mp3 players, tape recorders, 8-bit gameboys, handmade electronic devices, broken vintage equipment and handmade sculptural instruments (made from mainly found materials such as hospital crutches, driftwood and bones reclaimed from the River Thames).
His works have been broadcast on terrestrial and internet radio, been featured on film soundtracks and have been exhibited in art galleries, in the United Kingdom, Europe, America and Canada.
He has collaborated with musicians, poets, performance artists, sound artists and visual artists. He has performed many improvised concerts solo, duo, trio or as part of a large scale ensemble. Occassionally he sings with a Blues band.
The Seesar project constructs dark ambient soundscapes using unnamable timbres and demented, uncanny rhythms and melodies to evoke the fear and dread expressed within the works of H. P. Lovecraft and other authors of Mythos fiction. In part, Seesar accomplishes this realization of darkness by performing on scrap metal, turning household items into musical instruments, and building new noise-making devices to generate unique sonic additions. Employing textures provided by the inclusion of traditional musical instruments from various cultures from around the World are also part of Seesar’s music, further removing the listeners’ familiarity and expectations and thus deepening the connection to the unknown.
For this event Seesar will be performing a piece dedikated to thee great Cthulhu once more!
Orryelle will be performing a number of songs relating to his new book ‘Time, Fate and Spider Magic’ (Avalonia Press June 2014), including a live audio adaptation of the semi-channeled ‘Book of the Spider’, using violin, voice and FX pedals to craft a web of wyrd words and sounds, with Tegan Gigante dancing the Spider-Goddess and Priapus23 (of Akoustik Timbre Frequency) accompanying on singing bowls and percussion.
There will also be an invocation of Kali-Ma as Hindu arachnean archetype and Her consort MahaKala, the black God of Time.
Layers of looped mantras and harmonic chanting will be interwoven with eastern and western violin melodies and semi-sung poetry to evoke deities of time, of fate, of music (Ancient Egyptian Ihy) and of memory; culminating with an invocation of Baphomet presiding over this PanDaemonAeon.
There will be accompanying projections of related video from the Metamorphic Ritual Theatre archives and images of Orryelle’s paintings and sculpture. The performance will be partially pre-determined and partially improvisational in nature.
Orryelle is an esoteric artist in many media including painting, writing, sculpture, sound and performance.
He is the director of Australian-based Metamorphic Ritual Theatre Company, author of the Tela Quardrivium book-web (publ. Fulgur Limited)and often exhibits and performs internationally.
His work engages with connecting the subconscious and conscious through employment of magical
and mythical symbols and archetypes.
He is part of the vanguard of the current resurgence in esoteric arts balanced between the conceptual and the aesthetic.
