Unfortunately I had to drop off the June 21st show at Muchmore’s. Sorry to all who planned on coming out.
Since its been 1 year since my first release, here are some free download codes:
The sound bath in Jersey City is being rescheduled. I will update with the new date as soon as I know.
I’m performing on June 21 at Muchmore’s in Brooklyn. Its the first Temple ov Saturn show in months.
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.

An overview of my creative works from the past week.
I've been working on some papers and a bigger art piece, so my energy has been put towards that. I also took a short break from the Surrealist-related stuff. I'll get back to more erotic films and Surrealism this coming week. I also wrote this rant on the "woman artist" ghetto.
This week I added the last 3 videos to the main Surrealist Erotica series, and creating some videos for the Surrealist Masks mini-series, and created a separate on-Demand subscription page for the less explicit, more experimental videos related to the Surrealist Erotica project. As I wrote in my last post, the Surrealist Erotica project is far from over...
The latest editions of the Surrealist Erotica main series:
Additions to the Bonus features of the main series and the What is Surrealism Series...
I also did a photo series called The Pioneer Spirit:
And I wrote a new poem. It feels a little like a work in progress, but its something...
The main video series is now complete, but the overall project is far from over. I've created a secondary Vimeo on Demand page called What is Surrealism. This second page will grant you access to the same videos that are in the Bonus section of the main Surrealist Erotica series. (Many, many more of the Bonus films are on the horizon to be created, and being added to both pages) These videos are generally shorter, less explicit, and more experimental. I set it up as a subscription in place of a Patreon page (because Patreon is shit). Subscriptions and rentals are put towards the costs of production. I try to always make use of the things I already have, but sometimes I do need to purchase materials for props, costumes, etc.
Eventually, I will cut all the footage into a longer, single edit. And then there's also the book... see below...
While I'm working on the video stuff, I'm also working on stills that will be used for the Surrealist Erotic book project. The book will include stills from the videos, other photos inspired by Surrealist images, plus art and literary works created using the Surrealist techniques (collage, cut ups, calligramme, etc). In addition to the book, I plan to create a special edition book-in-a-box, à la Duchamp's Box-in-a-Valise.
