Saint Sisyphus

Evil king Sisyphus twice tricked the gods and cheated Death, only to have Zeus deal him the eternal punishment of forever rolling a boulder up a hill. Albert Camus recognized the existential meaningless of life in Sisyphus's fate, but hoped he could still find happiness. We have turned Sisyphus into a saint, happy in the ignorance of our chains. But the gods are faltering, it's time to recognize and throw off our chains...

Broken Flowers

The word of the year for 2023 should be 'disappointment'. Disappointment in our politicians and in our governments, disappointment in world leaders and greedy corporations, disappointment in well monied world wide green washing PR campaigns and outright lies at international climate conferences, disappointment in hurtful viral social media blind to what is actually happening on the streets of our world and disappointment in those neighbours who look the other way...

Coversations With Trees

Most imagery for this video was shot at Windy Lake outside of Sudbury, Ontario, on Lake Erie near Turkey Point and in/around Toronto and Vancouver during weeks of very strong summer winds. The music came next, growing from a quiet ambient solitude into quite something else. Layer upon layer, diffusing colour and shifting time, almost any frame of this video can be taken as an abstract painting. Thanks to throat singers DJ Griffin & Bruno Alfonso and MC Mushino for vocals...

Drone Bone Moan

In an age of greed and hyper capitalism, where nothing matters more than money, it's good to be reminded of the unfairness of our current economic systems, where so much is owned by so few and the vast majority is left to our own devices for survival...

Funked If I know

Trance and dance in the metaverse: A performance of the kris dance, a Balinese ceremonial dance which dramatizes the never-ending struggle between the witch and the dragon (the death-dealing and the life-protecting) as captured by Margaret Mead in the village of Pagoetan in 1937-1939. Dancers go into violent trance seizures and turn their krisses (daggers) against their breasts without injury. Consciousness is restored with incense and holy water.

The Altar Of Me

The modern world holds us fast to our own tale of Babel: a story of class struggle and self absorption, of end-of-the-world revelry and a search for meaning, of idealism and longing, of progress and collapse... the never ending cycle of human endeavour and regression...

Dutch Trumpet Bullet Train

Imagine if you will, a world without height and depth, without weight or substance, but a virtual reality with breathtaking scope that you never have to leave, a safe zone where you control the volume and the clarity, where you are locked into a crystalline labyrinth without a map, stumbling from mirror to mirror and back again, you are lost in the twilight zone...

Year Of The Flood

The continuing surge in mass shootings in the US has spurned many reactions, one being a resurgence of a stronger, wider based anti-gun lobby. It's time to stop the madness. This Wild West attitude has to be retired to the archaic past. Fight the NRA. Stand up and say no to guns!
