POSSESSION TRANCE (OR ALCHEMICAL INTERFACES FOR OPENING FLICKER PORTALS IN OPTIC NERVE FIBERS) 

“Possession Trance” is an ongoing live performance project exploring the crossover between cybernetics, underground rave music and (oc)cult rituals. This performance will focus on alchemical interfaces for opening flicker portals in optic nerve fibers. Flicker portals occur when experiencing the Bucha effect for a prolonged amount of time and are related to psychedelic hallucinations where if followed for long enough lead to a breaking down of the Ego and a possible glimpse into the unknown. A not too distant incarnation of Haasan-i Sabbah, through the mind of Brion Gysin, had accessed this and claimed that through flicker he had found a portal into the space-time continuum. The interface to be presented for NIME 2014 is not only a musical one but an interface of consciousness; a cosmic cybernetic interface.
