Dr. Devious and the Wiseman – Dance In Cyberspace (1992)

12 Jul

Music and video production from the late Guru Josh.

In his own words:

I thought, why not mix computer graphics to music and sell them as a visual album. There was no market. Woolworth’s and HMV said if you sell 2 thousand that’s good. Visual videos do not sell.

Despite no market I believed this was the next big thing and put my money, over 150 grand into digital video equipment, computers. I took 15 unemployed computer kids on the street, converted the 2nd and third floor of a building into visual design studios and spent the next 9 Months creating a 50 min video called Dr devious and the Wisemen, VR Dance in cyberspace, I was DR Devious but no one knew, the only hint was the company, GJ productions.

That video sold 220,000 copies and set a world trend. Dr Devious was the coolest character in the world, and no one knew who he was.

Nature. Dance. Naturedance. Beauty in motion. Camellia Nieh in another beautiful psychedelic reflection on dance and nature.

She also gives a beautiful quote from Sufi mystic master Rumi.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.
_Rumi

Terence McKenna: Octopus (Visual Language/VR-2)

26 Apr

Terence talking about the immediate visual language of octopi. Taken from IMAGINATRIX – The Terence McKenna Experience (2014).

Ken Adams has been collaborating and experimenting with McKenna for over twenty years and co-created Alien DreamTime and Strange Attractor. IMAGINATRIX was catalyzed by the recovery of previously unreleased videos circa 1990-94.

As a bonus, a video of Ken talking about the production of IMAGINATRIX. It contains interesting bits of information. It is implied Terence was involved in distributing LSD to make a living.
