Performing Possession Trance, a live performance project spawned within underground D.I.Y. rave, noise and hacker communities. Slowly mutating for the past eight or so years it is gradually getting closer to combining the core of technology with the human psyche. The performance uses a combination of minerals, metals, electronic circuits, high powered stroboscopes, dense smoke, high volume noise and ritual incense in an attempt to create powerful, hallucinatory phenomena within the audience members aimed toward provoking a liberating, communal and shared experience. Initially using Nicolas Collins CMOS synthesisers, the project has developed by examining the core underlying structure of electronic and computational circuitry. Currently this performance utilises self built crystal amplifiers constructed with iron and chalcopyrite, copper-oxide and copper solar cells, and crystal radios.
