Sunday, November 1st -
at The Foundry

Raymond Salvatore Harmon presents:

Visions of the Al Azif
inspired by the writings of HP Lovecraft

A Day of the Dead media performance -

Join us this Day of the Dead for an evening of cinematic ritual performance by Raymond Salvatore Harmon at London's legendary Foundry.

'Visions of the Al Azif' is a cinematic meditation of the altered states explored by the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred, author of the Necronomicon.

The Al Azif (H.P. Lovercraft's famed Necronomicon) was a massive collection of the madness induced poetic hallucinations of its author. Similar in structure to other Sufic works of the period the Al Azif speaks of unheard of eons before man walked the earth. Populated with demons and other creatures of questionable age who had come to earth seeking refuge from the emptiness of space.

The evening's performance will be the first screening of these rare and illusive documents of the visionary states that must be obtained in order to communicate with the Great Old Ones of mankind's forgotten past. These detailed organic abstractions illustrate the vivid hallucinatory states and madness inducing transcendental experiences that led to the author's untimely death.

The performance will take place in the catacombs under the Foundry.

Mark Pilkington of Strange Attractor and Andy Sharp of English Heretic will be creating the sonic variable for the Visions of the Al Azif performance.

Free admission.

Performance starts at 9pm sharp.
