It is with great pleasure that I announce the debut of a new short film by Shazzula Vultura Ridens. The film is entitled Nature Boy, the same title as my interpretation of a song penned by Eden Ahbez that is on my forthcoming double album, Voodoo Shivaya, is the film’s soundtrack. This collaboration is unveiled today in observance of the Vernal Equinox, and as a harbinger of things soon to come.
One of the opening songs for the concert - a cover of "Simple Man", written by Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Rossington (I've never been a great singer ) is one that has resonance for men who have made serious mistakes in life. I thought it might set a good tone for the beginning of the concert. Awhile later The Freedom Orchestra performed significant portions of my compositions for Lucifer Rising.
1978 live performance of the music for Lucifer Rising at California State Prison, Tracy, with Bobby BeauSoleil's band The Freedom Orchestra. Large sections of this performance were incorporated into the actual soundtrack. Rare footage indeed!
Live video of element66 featuring Bobby BeauSoleil. Denial is from The Dysprosium Collection which has a psychedelic electronica rock flavor that is not only catchy, but has a dark twist with a pulse that will have you drawn into a future you didn't see coming.
