I’ll be spending the rest of December working on music and some longer term projects.. I may end up cutting out the Week in Review posts until the new year, and do one post about December at the end of the month.
I took a break for a few days because of Thanksgiving.
I worked on a few new songs this week… this is one of them.
After the Sunday 11/18 show at Secret Project Robot, I’m looking forward to recording some new music, working on my writing, and updating the site.
This second video flyer for the Secret Project Robot show took a long time to make and I’m not really happy with it.. I wanted to keep working on it but then I got sick which slowed me down this week. It forced me to have a much needed rest. I’ll pick this one back up in the coming week.
Despite being sick for a few days I made it out for an afternoon hike on Saturday. I worked on some new Temple ov Saturn music this week… after the show at Secret Project Robot next Sunday the 18th I will be taking a break from performing to get back into recording.
November stirs up a lot of sad memories for me… I’m trying to spend as much time as I can in nature to re-center myself, especially after being in so many social situations recently. I accomplish my best work and feel most grounded when I am have minimal social interactions.
The Bride of the Sun/Daughter of the Stars cassette is officially out as of November 1 on Squall Recordings. You can order one here. Ships from Germany.
I will all have a few copies for sale at my upcoming shows. The next one is November 18 at Secret Project Robot.
Wyrd Daze 4 is now out! I contributed some art, music and you can see part 3 of ‘Season of the Witch’ Check it out here.
A paper I wrote has been published in the latest issue of Parasol.
An updated flyer for the 11/2 show at Refuge Arts… updated to include additional performers and contributors.
I cut a new version of my Maya Deren tribute using the footage from the Surrealist Erotica series.
Bride of the Sun and Daughter of the Stars is being released on gold tapes limited to an edition of 50. You can pre-order your copy now through Squall Recordings.
Squall Recordings, a Germany-based label is releasing Bride of the Sun / Daughter of the Stars on gold tapes, limited to an edition of 50. You can pre-order your copy here. The album releases on November 1.
I have a few other collages I worked on but they won’t be unveiled until the release of the next issue of Wyrd Daze.
I edited the third part of the Season of the Witch series, but it will not be released until the next issue of Wyrd Daze comes out.

▲SCARLET ASTERISMS▲ An evocation of Thelemic energies suitable for the Feast of the Dragon ▲▲▲ ▫️ Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. This coming Halloween 2018 e.v. we will conduct a public performance @theunderworldcamden Following the steps of Aleister Crowley and his "Rite of Eleusis", a series of seven public invocations or rites written by British occultist Aleister Crowley, each centered on one of the seven classical planets of antiquity. They were dramatically performed by Aleister Crowley, Leila Waddell (Laylah), and Victor Benjamin Neuburg in October and November, 1910, at Caxton Hall, London. This act brought Crowley's occult organization the A∴A∴ into the public eye. Likewise, in strict contrast with the overall trend of keeping Thelema segregated away in lodge rooms, and continuing the tradition started with the public Proclamation at the past Equinox, we will perform an evocation of Thelemic energies suitable for the Feast of the Dragon. We would like to thank @templeovsaturn for the Art given to this endeavour. Love is the law, love under will. #ecclesiagnosticauniversalis #thelema #magick #art #babalon #halloween #samhain #ritual #performance
I created visuals that will be projected during a ritual performance at The Underworld Camden in London on Halloween.
Autumn Electronix II at Garner Arts Center was a great success. I’m happy to have been a part of it again. Thanks for Lee and Gretchen for organizing and curating a really beautiful event.
I also filmed a “dark” version of The Crystal Gazer, but I haven’t put it out yet…
I am DJing at Autumn Electronix II on 10/20. I also have an art piece in the “Worlds Within Shadows” art show at the event. More info here.
A limited edition of 10. Available only at shows. A mix of new and old material. Each tape comes with a mini-zine.
I will have a limited edition cassette for sale at my upcoming shows. They are only available at shows, not online. I will also have a small selection of prints for sale as well.
I worked on some recordings, but since I have a bunch of shows coming up, I am going to be focused on preparing for the performances.
I attended 2 funerals this week and then 2 family birthday parties. I spent a lot of time doing family stuff and taking a break from my work. I went on a nice hike on a section of the Appalachian Trail.
Dark and foreboding visions from some of our favourite collage and photography artists. 64 page full colour book featuring:
- Ana Rita Silva
- Anastasia Phaedra
- Esther Limones
- Hidden Velvet
- James Heginbottom
- Joan Pope
- Marika Lorincz
‘Moments of Clarity’ is available for purchase through Input Error. I have a very limited quantity available for sale at the next few Temple ov Saturn shows.
I finished a third song and recorded a bunch of guitar tracks too.. I will be playing some shows again in October so I probably won’t be recording that much during that period. I will probably have enough for another album in early November. I will also be making an announcement soon about a tape release of Bride of the Sun and Daughter of the Stars.
These ‘Season of the Witch’ videos will probably end up as part of the ‘Occult Erotica’ short, or perhaps as something on their own.
This Persephone video is a new edit of footage that was filmed last Fall.
My aunt passed away on Thursday. She had been really sick since July so this was expected. She died surrounded by family and I got to have a really nice final conversation with her. I spent a lot of time with her throughout my life, in my youth I was always at her house hanging out with my cousin, and as an adult I worked for her. She was such a wonderful and inspiring person, its hard to imagine what life without her will be like. She will be dearly missed.
I know… I released an album last week… but here’s some more music.
I also started working on some other new material… for a future album.
For Georges Bataille’s birthday I used the footage from the Bataille Surrealist Erotica episode and cut down to a 2 minute tribute video. I’ve been going through all the episodes of the series and doing this… I’m not sure what I will do with these short versions, but they are less explicit that the originals.
Last year I started working on a video/photo series called “Witchcraft Erotica” that I never finished. I’ve been editing the older footage and filming some new stuff for it. I’m going to cut it all into a short film.
This week I released 'Daughter of the Stars' which is a companion album to my previous release 'Bride of the Sun'
I didn't book any shows this month because I want to work on some recording. Its hard for me to be in a creative mode when I'm practicing for shows. I'll be doing a DJ set (Pope Joan II) on October 20 at Garner Arts Center and then on the 22nd I'm doing a Temple ov Saturn set in Queens.
If you saw my previous blog post about what happened with my Vimeo on Demand erotic video collections, you'll know that I'm searching for a solution. Maybe its time to put them to rest... I've been starting to edit them down into shorter versions, and plan on making them into a single film. I thought maybe one solution would be to present it somewhere at a film screening... perhaps if I had a solo show of art work, it could be worked into that. If anyone has other ideas.. let me know!
I need to spend some time this coming week updating this website to be a little bit easier to navigate! Eventually I'd like to do away with the Art(s) pages because the Shop page is basically a duplicate.
I hope everyone who has check out the new Temple ov Saturn music is enjoying it!
