Once again pawing at the window of Tak Tent Radio is the eyes, ears and fluffy paws that are known collectively as Sheer Zed with a new Sound Art Mix. That saucy old sound shaman has been pointing his four track recorder (covered with his Dead Kitten Windscreen) at various audio whirlpools; a chuntering, corrupt, greedy, dodgy and electronically glitched extremist politician, foul mouthed noisy roofers erecting scaffolding while our hero gently urinates in his bathroom’s toilet, splintered, broken, fractured and blister distorted old school hip-hop beats and pre-sets, crackling vinyl noise segments, vast aum trance drumming drones, a brutalist Polish mall and train station, dark ambient soundscapes constructed solely from vintage horror black and white movie dialogue soundtracks, a throbbing and pounding dance club homage to a Thai necromancer Phor Sala Tan with traditional instruments and various orchestral chaotic cataclysms, colliding crazily around wild and cascading collections of auditory architecture, battling teaspoons and a brief appearance by the legendary Harry Everett Smith, visual artist, experimental filmmaker, record collector/producer, bohemian, mystic, self-taught student of anthropology and Neo-Gnostic bishop.
Sheer Zed is a writer, shaman, electronic musician and artist. He is publishing articles with Indie Shaman, Rituals & Declarations and TQ zine this year while releasing music and working within his shamanic practice. He contributed to the exhibition Do You Believe in Magic? at Bristol Museum. You can find Sheer Zed on Twitter at @SheerZed or https://linktr.ee/SheerZed
