about

HÄXAN is six tracks using the 1922 Häxan – Witchcraft Through the Ages Swedish/Danish silent horror film written and directed by Benjamin Christensen as a starting point to examine the persecution of women and the suppression of the Divine Feminine. The footage has been cut up, reversed, inverted, time shifted and looped, which doesn’t undo the damages but releases the energy back to the Source, a transmutation of intention, beauty from the ugliness of mankind, restoring the balance in some small way.

The titles come from the english translation subtitles from key points in the movie.

The audio is improvised on a eurorack modular synthesiser processed through Native Instruments Guitar Rig and Maschine. The videos were edited in After Effects and extra animations were created with Quartz Composer. The audio and visuals were performed and recorded live in the studio.

66.6 minutes of morphing mandalas and electronic drones ranging from noise to warm tones that wrap you like a blanket.
