MUSIC

I recently released some new Temple ov Saturn material on 2 releases. The first is an album called Last Stand at Ankh Sanctuary and the second is a free EP called The Serpent’s Gift. Available now through Bandcamp.

Friction on the Astral Plane was just something I recorded one night when I couldn’t sleep.

UPCOMING… ETC…

I’m having some serious health issues so my ability and motivation to create is somewhat diminished although I am still trying to stay active. Hopefully all my health issues will be resolved over the course of the next month or two.

A post shared by Temple Ov Saturn (Joan Pope) (@templeovsaturn) on

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.
