Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule is a ChAOrder Magickian and Baphometic avatar dedicated to the reification of surrealism and the realization of magickal aesthethis via the multi-media of Arts: Musick, drawing, ritual theatre, film, sculpture… Hailing from Australia, Orryelle travels, performs and exhibits art worldwide -though this will be his first time in Poland! He is an initiated Adinath Tantric, Aghori, Thelemite and Voudon Gnostic.
He directs the Metamorphic Ritual Theatre Company, and even when performing solo while traveling, always incorporates elements of dance, theatre and ritual into his live musical performances. Primarily employing violin and voice, Orryelle also sometimes works with experimental electronic backing-tracks from various collaborators around the world. His shows are dynamic invocations, a combination of structured songs and spontaneous improvisations.
Currently Orryelle is also working on ‘The Tela Quadrivium’ -a fourfold Alchemical book-web being progressively published by Fulgur Limited (UK) -so far Conjunctio (2008) and Coagula (2011) – http://www.fulgur.co.uk He is also the creator of The Book of Kaos Tarot (iNSPiRALink. Multimedia Press). His publications and art prints will also be available at the live music and ritual theatre performances.
The Silver Dusk’s 156 = Musick Project is an experiment of Process: Magickal Musick was recorded by members of The HermAphroditic ChAOrder of the SILVER DUSK -usually in ritual context or with invocational intent- then posted on CD to other member/s in another country for them to add more layers to. This continued progressively until completion.
The style of music ranges from neoclassical ambient orchestral multi-instrumental corroborations and layered electronic experimentations to simple primal ritual corroborees with sticks and bells and harmonious voices around a fire by the Hekate Tree.
Included are several live improvisations from when various members converged physically in different locales: From the initial 9-person onstage live jam of ‘She Shall Ride He’ in Melbourne Australia 2004 which launched the project synchronous with others starting tracks in the US and Korea, to the harmonics of the 12 participants in the EquiNOXULiuqE Circle in Hekate’s Grove in Seattle, Sept 2010.
156 is the number by Hebrew Qabbala of BABALON, the fiery Thelemic Goddess of Love and Lust, and also of KAOS, the 7-headed Beast on which She rides.
Contributor Kestral’s revelation that Musick (spelt with a k as Crowley spelt Magick with a k, to differentiate it from common stage magic and give it numerical significance as 418 =The Great Work) also = 156 was the inspiration for this CD’s title. Babalon was the primary deity invoked in many of the tracks herein, for Her passion is indeed akin to the mystery of music and the sonic majesty of an aural ‘apocalypse’ (meaning unveiling or revelation).
Kestral’s full formula of 156 as Musick will be outlined in the audio and extra text with the limited CDR that comes with only 156 of the copies of the project.
The HermAphroditic ChAOrder of the SILVER DUSK is an international network/webplay of artist-magickians, employing musick, visual arts, theatre, ritual, and various other multimedia as menstruums for earthing magical currents. A counterpoint (yet bridge) to the solar and structured magic of the The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Silver Dusk employs a primarily intuitive, lunar and artistic apprehension of magic.
