Over recent months I have been participating in interviews with Niklas Göransson for Bardo Methodology, a printed magazine published on a, um, somewhat improvisational timetable in Sweden. If you are at all interested in knowing what makes me tick at the deepest levels of my being, particularly in relation to what inspires me in my creative work, this series of interviews may be of interest to you.
Bardo Methodology is an English-language magazine featuring interviews with artists, musicians, philosophers, mystics, scholars, scientific researchers, and weirdos like me who are given to mixing disciplines. The magazine explores a broad range of unusual topics, with emphasis on the strange and esoteric. It is aimed at seekers of a deepening understanding of reality, and examines techniques that may be an aid to them in their search. The visual design of the magazine is facilitated by artist Timo Ketola, and leans to the shadow side of the visual art spectrum.
A somewhat abridged version of my first interview with Niklas as can be read HERE. The full version is published in Bardo Methodology #2, and the second interview in the series will appear in issue #3. The physical magazine is distributed in North America by The Ajna Offensive. Elsewhere the magazine can be ordered from BardoMethodology.com, where you can also read highlights of past articles and see images of some fascinating art.
-Bobby (yes it's really me) BeauSoleil
Forty years or so ago Bobby BeauSoleil conceived of the music for Lucifer Rising as a single continuous piece of music, a 45-minute rock symphony. Despite the rigors and challenges imposed by his imprisonment he delivered his psychedelic opus, fully realized, and presented it as a complete work on LP in 1979.
This commemorative reissue on the Ajna label is faithful to the artist's original conception, restored to a seamless whole by returning to the nascent mix tape and giving it a fresh mastering for the ultimate in audio fidelity. Now available on vinyl LP via Amazon and CD Baby as well as a Digital Download.
Gaga: Five Foot Two (Netflix) is a new doc on Lady Gaga that features music from Lucifer Rising.
