The third and ultimate instalment of a online video trilogy accompanying the Haunter Information founder’s new album for PAN, X, wheel, sees 3 radiant figures communing with the shadowy spirits of untamed character in an intricate plant language.
On X, wheel, the new album from artist and Haunter Data founder Heith, the quite texture of human consciousness is rendered as both malleable and nebulous, anything that shifts and warps as a final result of the artist’s ongoing exploration of esoteric notions of actuality. His initial album for PAN manifests a observe that attracts on both equally the spiritual and the inventive, folding in factors of psychedelia, psytrance, freak folk, stoner steel, harsh sound and early electronic audio into a singular sonic language, inspired in equal elements by biological kinds of plant conversation and the logic of goals. This emphasis on alternative procedures of communication extends out of phonetic expression and into speculative inscription with Angel’s Hair, an alphabet of vegetal glyphs and mycological people devised by Heith in collaboration with the visual artist Pietro Agostoni. The alphabet shares its title with the folkloric substance siliceous cotton, a sticky gelatinous substance of unidentified origin, claimed by believers and zealots to be made through UFO visitations and miraculous manifestations of the Virgin Mary, respectively. This bizarre language gives one route into the world of X, wheel, and the nightmarish overgrown ecosystem of one particular of the album’s most unsettling tracks, ‘A Venus Flytrap in the circus lodge.’
Subsequent three bioluminescent figures relocating all over a shadowy dreamscape, ‘A Venus Flytrap in the circus lodge’ embodies a world in which the pure globe creates a violent, predatory response, a nod to the titular carnivorous plant. Probing the interplay between this deadly connotation, Venus as the Roman god of really like and beauty and as one particular of the closest planets to earth, Heith conjures a world in which liminal realities are illuminated – the extremely hard proximity of the world evoking an unknowable area, the really like deity gesturing to new modes of faith. The denizens of the earth of ‘A Venus Flytrap in the circus lodge’ emit an internal radiance, yet this light-weight does not journey upwards, transcendent of bodily flesh, but rather appears to be of the unkempt earth, glowing spores that propose these figures have sprung up from the incredibly soil and sand more than which they now tread. Like the Angel’s Hair alphabet, these beings get on a physical form familiar still unknowable to us, moulded in the shapes of bodies, nonetheless smeared with a existence-supplying compound of a distinctive mother nature, the natural planet getting back handle of its inhabitants with ghostly guardians, stalking their birthplace surging with all the guarantee of violence of the Venus Flytrap.
A Venus Flytrap in the circus lodge follows Your Factor (a spell of equality) and Dero as the 3rd part of a video clip trilogy accompanying X, wheel. In Your Element, historic ritual practice and cursive script are illuminated by laser light, a up to date excavation of spiritual tradition and fantasy. In Dero, strange scrolling visuals give us glimpses of dystopian urban environments, occult graffiti and carnival enjoyable dwelling imagery suggesting a remodeled atmosphere of illusion and deceit. In the 3rd and last part, Heith reaches earlier the summoning ceremony and the disfiguring methods, delving further into a darker, far more normal place. The denizens of A Venus Flytrap in the circus lodge shift with unknowable potency, a thriller only amplified by the concluding strands of Angel’s Hair, a new visual language for new realm of existence. Expert as a hazy cloud of shadow and loam, the desire reaches again into the waking globe, casting bizarre shadows on the boundaries concerning flesh and earth.
