Tongues Of Light - The Myth Of Separation And Selfhood

description

One of the most enigmatic projects we’ve encountered in recent years returns with
a gripping 2nd volume of rtecordings constructed entirely out of Youtube sample -
conducting disparate, glossolalic voices in a spellbinding, etheric communion for Andy
Votel & Demdike Stare’s Pre-Cert Home Ents label.
Helmed again by Sam A. McLoughlin, Tongues Of Light dip back into a rhizome of spirit-
channelling YouTubers which has expanded since the previous volume of ‘Channelled
Messages At The End Of History’ had us rapt back in 2016. Acting as a lightening rod for
the online phenomenon of light language transmissions, Tongues of Light finds that
the styles of glossolalia have “developed and diversified, as have the belief systems and
rationales surrounding the practice”.
Effectively hitting square between the eyes of, say, performance artist Breadwoman and
EVP expert Carl Michael Von Hausswolff, ‘The Myth of Separation and Selfhood’ doubles
down on the project’s convictions, and those of the channellers, with two side-long
collages that augment and accentuate their spontaneous intuitions with light processing
and sensitively synthesised backdrops of haunting, new age-related pads and recordings
of electro-magnetic fields that subtly mirror and emphasise the contours and cadence,
or musical qualities, of the vocals.
When abstracted away from the respective video’s relatively prosaic, everyday settings
- living rooms, bedrooms, captured on a laptop/desktop camera - the results perhaps
reduce the listener’s cynicism and allow the messages to come thru clearer, better
manifesting the idea that these ‘Tubers aren’t silly spuds but actually attuned to an
expanded consciousness from distant galaxies, and genuine aspects of our “higher
selves”, or as Sam follows, they are “ultimately emanations from the same source that
produces our subjective sense of self”
