There's a mirror in everything and in every mirrors there's a door, which one opens to other doors to an other mirror, because the great nothing is bound to the endless depth.
To watch the second chapter of HelAltaar, I invite you to follow the present link :
HelAltaar II “Offerings Of The Five Senses”, is the prolongation of the first chapter, HelAltaar I.
September to June symbolize 9 months of intense nights work.
The creative mechanism can be defined as self-hypnosis, a performance alike a long journey into the mind.
Falling deeply between the black walls of memory and the white walls of nonexistence.
In August 2013 it was agreed upon with Selim Lemouchi (The Devil's Blood) that the song “I Was Promised A Hunt” (extracted from the album “III : Tabula Rasa or Death and the Seven Pillars”) will be used for the video.
In September 2013 the storyboard and some tests, filmed in a volcanic landscape during the summer, were sent to S.L.
The working process was exactly the same as last year. I did not try to translate the song.
The images fit in harmony with the music, like air fuels fire.
In December 2013, during the presentation of the album “Earth Air Spirit Water Fire” of Selim Lemouchi & His Enemies, some footage has been filmed in agreement with Selim.
His departure from this earth, struck me deeply.
But as promised, the video has been accomplished.
I do not think that there is one particular goal in art. Only the urgent need to explore and feed the daemons. Because a human being is a daemon by essence, no one, excepted oneself, can approach its own daemons.
Let the fire burning.
