In podcast episode 74, we’re joined by Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule, “a prolific visual, sonic and textual artist-magickian. The instruments of his arts and magicks include, but are not limited to: Australia’s Metamorphic Ritual Theatre Co. which presents public rituals aiming to transform rather than merely entertain the audiences.” Orryelle explains how the act of creation is Magickal from an artist’s perspective.

Orryelle is responsible for the “ever-expanding digital archives and galleries of Mutation Parlour; a member of The HermAphroditic ChAOrder of the Silver Dusk, a global multicultural and multisubcultural blend of tradition and innovation, artist of “Conjunctio” (a Graphic Grimmoire), creator of the Book of Kaos Tarot, and author of A Brief HIRStory of TimEmiT. Orryelle has been extensively involved in the Horus-Maat Lodge, channeling several double-current Libers such as ‘Pennae-Ultim-Atum‘ and ‘The Book of Going Back by Night’.”

Our conversation touches on the recently published graphic grimiore, Conjunctio, and presentation at the Esoteric Book Conference, the importance of working in the physical plane, aesthetics, art, beauty and transformation, including body modification. Orryelle also discusses the art of ritual performance, world wide travels to sacred sites, and even some thoughts about 2012.

    I enjoyed this interview with Oryelle so much. I heard the voice of an intensely intelligent, widely read and deeply thinking man. He sounds so very down-to-earth and yet so ready to trip off the planet at the slightest provocation. I agree wholeheartedly with his thoughts on aesthetics vs. functionality (for its own sake); I have always admired his artwork and his Tarot deck is among the favourites and most cherished in my collection. I look forward to the day when he makes it to the western side of our great continent with his performance art.
