So I’ve heard of various artists making a group ritual somehow live using their audience to fuel gnosis for it.
Tool definitely comes to mind, definitely Led Zeppelin (who were way way way into Thelema. At least Page was.)
That and a bunch of pop “singers” who admit to “selling their soul” for fortune and fame and do some truly weird shit in their videos. Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry (that god damn Bon Appetite video), etc
I’m interested in how to structure such a thing and call on entities while you’re playing/singing. Do they summon them first and flash sigils during and then just say “alright guys, feed up!” or what? I notice Danny Carey has a ton of sigils all over his drumkit and they put up the 7 pointed star in the background a lot of the time. Tons of sacred geometry. I definitely sense they’re way deeper in than I can imagine.
How would some of you more creative types go about structuring such events? I understand that a great show is a hypnotic experience. Getting people to go through a process and go beyond mass vampirism would be something I’m interested in (though I have a definite natural tendency to feed off a crowd HARD. I get goosebumps just thinking about a good stage high…)
Thoughts? How would you do this? Incantations are a bit odd but I’ve seen some odd things in my time in the industry.
