Radio Free Clear Light is a collective of artists devoted to experimental, electro-acoustic improvisation music as a collaborative mystical practice. Our approach draws its inspiration from Thelemic and Discordian thought, and other schools of esoteric wisdom. We use digital and analog electronics, found sound sources, vocals and a variable set of traditional musical instruments in an improvisational process that yields results as eerie as they are sublime. Stylistically speaking, our output contains elements of dark ambient, industrial, dub, IDM, minimalism, noise, shamanic and psychedelic musics, drones and free jazz.

Central to our philosophy is that all people are musicians, whether or not they believe themselves to be. It is our intent to create spaces of musical freedom where all people are participants, actively creating the unique and changing soundscape with their presence and sustained attention. In this way, the music created is always site-specific, altered each moment by the environment and musical contributions of the those in attendance.


 

Track list

  1. Magick, Music and Ritual 9 - In the Company of the White Rabbit 03:17


    In the Company of the White Rabbit

    In the Company of the White Rabbit
    (Radio Free Clear Light)

    Research on presence

    has brought to us

    a blindingly strange

    understanding.

     

    In order to evoke an illusion

    it is said

    things might work better

    in the company

    of the white rabbit.

     

    Thereafter we are set free

    to explore different mediations

    of virtual reality.

     

    Then again, snow

    despite its being a major concept

    in this field,

    is most often overlooked or confused

    in various studies

    in the field of cognition.

     

    Such problems can't be avoided

    without the help of

    external perceptual inputs.

    Soon the entire process

    tends to disappear,

    dismembered.

     

    It will go on to form

    a space-time referent

    in which one will

    be able to experience

    a particular sensation.

     

    Various theories

    have been proposed

    They all amount to

    gooble gobble

    gooble gobble.

     

    Electric fire

    purely evoked

    by our mind

    becomes

    the dream.

  2. Magick, Music and Ritual 9 - Labyrinth (Remix 2013) 05:04

    Labyrinth (Remix 2013)
    (Radio Free Clear Light)

    One day he noticed a flier advertising for a director of training.

    This was, of course, not his first stint in the desert.

    By that time he no longer believed in a uniform, absolute time.

    “But we cannot possibly ignore certain pathological aspects of the subject,” he wrote.

    “I will analyze the actions of men as if it were a question of lines, of planes, and of solids.”

     

    He applied for the job and eventually got it.

    He then projected an infinite series of times,

    and he postulated that he could get humans

    to choose the path he designated.

     

    “Each choice we make feels to us as if it must be unique,” he wrote.

    He found a human community nearby

    and began to notice that in a growing, dizzying net of divergent choices

    a choice could be handled by his intellect as any other object is handled in a lab.

    “They came to me to solve problems,” he wrote.

    They wanted him to lay bare the causes in which the choice originates.

    They didn’t really know what he was doing with the tangled webs of their lives.

     

    In later years, he focused more on mass psychology than on individual intelligence,

    on convergent rather than parallel times.

    “A deep consideration came upon me”

    “It was me,” he wrote. “It was just me all along.”

    It was then that he developed a full-blown systematic approach to training,

    involving a great network of choices which approached one another.

    “I am no such thing as many. I am MYSELF, MYSELF alone. That’s what each of us believes.”

     

    He built three pieces of equipment

    each of which forked, broke off, and even became unaware of one another for centuries.

    This game eventually became immensely popular

    as it embraced all possibilities of time,

    all conceivable choices

    all possible outcomes.

    His name has long been lost but the game persists in the desert

    where the lines can almost be seen with the naked eyes.
