Please note that, due to illness, The Haxan Cloak is unable to perform, and will be replaced by Dalglish.
While ethnologists and musicologists finish scouring the planet for traces of extinct cultures, connecting the dots for evidence of lost musical forms in the name of science, something extraordinary is happening at home: new tribes of modern primitives are convening in the darkness of nightclubs and music venues. Primal energies are unleashed through telecommunications networks and digital audio workstations, giving birth to new music for the rituals of celebration and mourning in a world that seemed to have detached itself from superstition. What purpose do these artificial rites serve? Are they any less valid than "authentic" traditions? What does the current collective desire for this kind of expression say about the society we live in, or where it is headed?
