Through experimentation with digital sound production and sampling techniques
the Artist explores the sonic textures of 1960s electronic music, taking influence
from the BBC radiophonic workshop and sonic artists like Ruth White.
The sound file primarily consists of samples from a recording of a black mass
included on the 1969 album "Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls" by the infamous
underground occult psychedelic rock band Coven. The samples are distorted, in some cases reversed
and underscored with minimalist synth textures to create a melodramatic dark and sinister atmosphere
which is at once both psychedelic and disturbing.
A pastiche of two obscure corners of 60s counter-culture; experimental electronic music, and transgressive spiritualism.
