Head of a Pin

“The Head Of A Pin” was an attempt to re-create a magickal working, and became a sound-collage ritual all its own, in the making. It's part of an on-going series (first started here at the occult anthology with “Strange Angels”, under a different name) of rituals, that have spanned recordings, live performances, and private investigation. It's a refining fire; the bones peek through the skin. It's getting thin...

Dessicant uses analog and electronic devices to conduct sonic rituals, a portable portal into strange, grey realms with twitching blurred outlines. Its like peering into a dirty fishbowl, with a human head in it. Inspired by anyone who has ever aspired to blend magick and art.
