I initiated my praktices at thee tender age of 9 when I diskovered both H. P. Lovecraft & ‘Witchkraft/Blak Magik’ (as thee glossy misinformed ‘sensationalist’ books kalled it). Really this was my first attempt at ‘Kaos Magik’ and thee beginning of my Projekt to refine ideas and praktices to their essential qualities as I attempted to blend thee two into a kohesive whole.
I began praktising Aleister Crowley’s Rites and studying thee Golden Dawn when I was 14 and this lasted for thee next 11 years…How time flies when you are studying thee Kabbalah!
I have been prakticing Kaos Magik for 12 years now, developing and refining my own personal Rites and Belief Systems which are deeply interwoven within my audio kompositions and performances. I have taken elements from a variety of sources inkluding Aleister Crowley, Robert Anton Wilson, William S. Burroughs, Genesis P-Orridge & TOPY, Tibetan & Mongolian kultures and H. P. Lovecraft to name but a few...
