Ritual Curses of Coyotel No Path

Sometimes one act of cursing isn't enough, we miss the mark, and i mean mark, like a conman means mark, a vic, like an arrow or a dagger that stabs at that mark. And so as a plan of attack, I have decided multiple stabs, and that these curses will appear and be released firstly as an audio ritual-curse, and then next as a video ritual curse (done alone), and finally, with the other two acting as preparations for what will be continued and culminated as and in public participation Coyotel curses -- which too will be recorded; Burroughs said to Leyba, said to me, "Record EVERYTHING." 

At this moment I am planning three curses: one for the NSA, another for the Art World, and one Death Curse for Nestle, and that listing is not the order of ritual priority. I am aiming for the public curses to be held next Summer, space and location will be announced at least two months in advance (and will be working with other local and regional Coyotels to make this reality real), but we will see how time, health, space, etc. work out. Allow just a brief explanation:

For the NSA: concerning this matter of privacy I've take a stance much like W.S. Burroughs, whereby privacy is an illusion we give each other out of respect, but going the other way towards total exposure YET, and importantly, without the NSA having a privileged secret position.

On "The ART" world -- that curse is meant to liberate artists and their art, cursing and challenging those privileged positions of the Art Gallery, the mass-market-art-production, and those that control architecture, etc, as those and that which controls/dictates the scripting of cultural spaces and exploits its talent. Remember the message is the medium, and content is just another medium. This too, as with each curse, will start as audio and move towards video and then public curses. There public staying power will be dictated by participation.

And lastly - that I am going to work on - is a Nestle Curse to Coincide with Oct 17th event in California -- it will be done that day to help enhance the Death Curse Against Nestle. And so this will prob. be the 1st curse that I get to work on. And then that curse will follow the plan of the others.
Hail to the New Flesh!

Celebrating Die Elektrischen Vorspiel 6th Anniversary


We will keep this short. We of Thee Uncondemning Monk Momus aka Thee UM, Rev. Al L. Aguero, are celebrating the 6th anniversary of blog-site/project Die Elektrischen Vorspiel, by Júlio Mendes Rodrigo. As such, we created a rendition of our track, Invocation ov William S. Burroughs, a magical invocation & soundwork of and for William S. Burroughs. The track was reworked explicitly for this celebration. An explanation of this project is reprinted below (written by J. Mendes).

Et Quid Amabo Nisi Quod Aenigma Est?
Die Elektrischen Vorspiele, a blog founded on January 15 2009, and whose sixth anniversary is commemorated with this release, was envisioned as a space for the nurturing of a “savage thought” (that is, of an undisciplined nature). In its essence, and as an individual project, it aims mostly to be a vehicle for its author’s vast-reaching interests, while at the same time harnessing them into some form of discipline. More than just a reflection on the fascination caused by the themes implicit to its lexical field of action, as shown by the coordinates and key concepts that define the boundaries of its territory, i.e. “Occultism” / “Esotericism”, this virtual space mainly maps some of the topologies enclosed in the History of Ideas. A vast and sometimes ignored area of Knowledge, whose apparently paradoxical character drives a magnetic pull towards the need to identify its true nature, as ubiquitously manifested along various historical cycles, in an unending drama staged in the theatre of the Anima Mundi. This is, in fact, the true raison d’être of Die Elektrischen Vorspiele.
As a direct result of its existence, November 2010 saw the publication of the book “Summa Techno(i)logicae”. This work, as implied by its title, is a thoroughly compiled and systematized patchwork reflecting the interests that guide its author’s research. From then on, periodic collaborations with other projects ensued, such as the magazines “Finis Mundi”, “Infernus” and “Antibothis”.
Still under the aegis of Die Elektrischen Vorspiele, and always through the establishment of complicities and connections, a number of events were created and carried out in the past six years. This set of actions (with Music as a constant common denominator) has had as its main goal the evocation of the life and work of various figures that have left behind crucial legacies. The people celebrated include the musician John Balance (Coil); the historian of religions Mircea Eliade; the poet and theatre director Antonin Artaud; the philosopher Georges Bataille; and the japanese writer Yukio Mishima. It is also worth mentioning the series of events spanning along the year 2013, Occult Esoterica AV Gatherings, curated in collaboration with intermedia artist Ana Carvalho.
The proposal made to EdP – Editora do Porto (in the person of its administrator, João Ricardo) for the release of this compilation emerges as a consequence of shared common cosmologies which have gradually been transmuted into friendship, and also of João Ricardo’s encyclopaedic musical knowledge, while the invitations made to the artists taking part in it are the logical result of a chaining together of elective affinities (a process permanently taking place since the first Homeric dawn).
