Magickal Music / Musickal Magic
When we create ritual space we open up a realm in which anything is possible, where the imagination is king, where the utter weirdness and wildness of all things becomes apparent and where the inner landscape and the outer fuse and blend, mirror each other. My ritual experiences, invocation, trancework, psychedelic experimentation, etc., have equipped me with a set of tools that facilitate and activate the imagination. In this audio-visual presentation I explore the ways in which my magical practice feeds and fuels my creative work.
