Dreamachines for sale – transcending our physical existence

“Rub out the Word”
For Gysin the way of permutation was the ‘way out’, the means of transcending our physical existence. The dreamachine was a similar device, creating pattern after pattern within the brain itself, turning image upon image, light upon light until the infinite became possible.

Buy a complete Dreamachine setup here : all you need is a record player capable of 45rpm and a plug socket. It ships worldwide inside a 1 metre long cardboard tube ready to assemble, and with a 5 metre candle-twist power cable for suspension of the Nanobulb from a ceiling, overhang or beam with a simple cup-hook.

No Virtual Reality suite has yet come up with anything near the fluidity, range and inventiveness of image of the dreamachine, and none is likely to. The dreamachine, whether it reflects physiological patterns, or acts as a gateway into the personal, collective or cosmic unconscious; whether it is meaningful or meaningless, has the immense advantage of allowing us to respond to ourselves. It provides access into our own brain. It is literally a machine that produces dreams.

IMG_9508Gysin himself reflected on the type of vision engendered by the use of dreamachines: ‘I think it scares people… Because of the fact that it deals with that area of interior vision which has never been tapped before. Except in history, one knows of cases — in French history, Catherine de Medici for example, had Nostradamus sitting up on the top of a tower… he used to sit up there and with the fingers of his hands spread like this would flicker his fingers over closed eyes, and would interpret his visions in a way which were of influence to her in regard to her political powers… they were like instructions from a higher power… ‘They could also foretell bad things. Peter the Great also had somebody who sat on the top of a tower and flickered his fingers like that across his closed eyelids… And any of us today can go and look out the window or lie in a field and do it, and you get a great deal of the type of visions — in fact, it’s the same area in the alpha bands of excitation of the brain — within the alpha band between eight and thirteen flickers a second. And the dreamachine produces this continuously, without interruption, unless you yourself interrupt it by opening your eyes like that.’

Not suitable for persons with photo sensitive epilepsy or migraines.

Entopticals, the art we all make

pandoraWorking with PandoraStar light entrainment device and making audio from analogue AutoHarps with digital Modular Synths in Ableton to enhance the journey, where consciousness dissolves, judgement fades and within closed eyes, beyond Psychedelic ‘entoptictals’, the antipodes of consciousness allow more of oneself to be revealed. I can’t recommend this powerful, PandoraStar enough, the flickering light guides your brain to experience a range of beneficial states of brainwave activity, which can be used for many empowering purposes. I will document my journey soon with EEG, illustrations and subjective reviews.

AMPLE FREQUENCIES: Ace Hotel, Shoreditch, LONDON, 7PM – TUE OCT 18, 2016
FREE WITH RSVP – MIRANDA, LONDON
ldn_amplefrequencies_v5_gj_2From the mundane hum of the refrigerator to the melodies of the cosmos, we experience our world through the slant of sound. This October, Ace Hotel and the audiophiles at B&O PLAY begin to ponder, poke and redefine the edges of sonic consciousness with Ample Frequencies — a series of performances, site-specific installations and sound symposia taking place in New York, London and Los Angeles.

For London’s inaugural happening, we’ve linked-up audiovisual artist Adoxo and scientific researcher Luciana Haill for a sonic sojourn into the quiet mind. A one night only installation in our dreamy basement bar Miranda, the pair’s project will monitor an audience member’s brainwaves during guided meditation, reimagining the results as an oscilloscopic audiovisual performance. A panel discussion hosted by Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura of NTS Radio follow. RSVP free limited space here :
