Transforming All to Essence is an audio ritual improvised on the 15th of November 2009. This is the accompanying image.
The title comes from a random phrase picked from a book on Gnosticism.
GRIST – A Demon Sheen’s ritualistic dark ambient improvised collage soundtrack project – no instruments, no composition – where all the sounds are found sounds and all the images are found images.
He makes these sounds by running sound-effects CDs through guitar pedals (delays, loops, distortions) and creating layered waves of emotional evocative real-time ceremonies and soundscapes of gnostic space.
For each Gristian Ritual that he creates, A Demon Sheen creates an accompanying image. In this piece, he combines a fractal image generated in Apophysis with an alchemical symbol for a Reverbatory Furnace.
