This piece is inspired by the idea of a secret history of humanity and the Earth — golden ages many moons ago that are now reflected through the works of alternative researchers, wordsmiths and artists. The concept also reflects the deep seated yearning to return to a holistic state of being in these days of increasing separatism and trans-humanism.
Since playing with a reel to reel machine back in the 70s I’ve always loved the concept of grabbing sounds and playing with them. My music is experimental, mostly electronic and tends to develop intuitively from an impulse. Occasionally I will have a concept of the meaning of the track when I begin but this may change through the creative process and becomes something else entirely. The best work unfolds as a mystery and it is a wonder as to how it came in to being. In terms of the hermetic traditions I was influenced by the works of Aleister Crowley from the age of about 17 or so. I’m most fond of the books Magick without Tears and The Book of Wisdom and Folly. I took my ‘stage-name’ from the enigmatic equation 0=2. My music tends to come in creative periods that can be separated by several years.
