@tendigits @ritualdust thank you, i'm glad the visceral-ness came through! 💀 🖤

CONTENT WARNING FOR LINKED VIDEO: sexual gesturing, swearing, general deviancy.

in the link below is a little audio/visual teaser of ᴋᴇʀᴏꜱᴇɴᴇ ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ, a track from my upcoming electronic album featuring unhinged vocals from yours truly. this was a lot of fun to make (clearly). having entered music creation via the noise route, it’s been an interesting challenge making songs with a more recognizable structure, but it seems that even when i comply somewhat to a formula, my music still comes out weird, visceral, and chaotic. looking forward to sharing more, but in the meantime, should you partake, please enjoy this mischievous sample. filmed by @ritualdust

Got some photos of our first show as Blood and Dust me and @voidxwitch did at the end of this summer. They capture quite well the energy of it, looking forward to play more of those! :facepaint:

@RussSharek hey, awesome! thanks for letting me know it's been circulating. 🙂

CONTENT WARNING FOR LINKED VIDEO: bugs, darkness, sexuality, trauma and mental illness. FLASH WARNING as well.

my first music video has crawled out from the darkness. it’s for a song called ᴀʀᴇ ʏᴏᴜ ᴏᴋ?, an instrumental electronic track with a sample of my voice turned into a synth lead. most sounds from this track are original samples reworked in software, having been collected in a park beneath a full moon and lunar eclipse. the video started out as an experiment and turned into an endurance-testing ritual, filmed in one night after a storm.

this song is about a worm i met in the park while collecting the aforementioned samples. it is also about coming back from the dead and wanting to fuck shit up while being secretly very sad about it. it is dark, weird, suggestive, and intense (standard Hex fare). it’s also funny somehow and very rude (inevitable). enjoy to any who partake and thank you for watching my danse macabre.

many thanks and deep gratitude for @ritualdust for her skills in helping me bring this ecstatic monstrosity to life. and thank you also to Christophe Daigle of Blkkwave Studio (blkkwavestudio.com/) for the excellent mixing and mastering.

hello! i'm still learning this whole mastodon thing (but i imagine i'll be here more as mainstream social media continues to crash and burn), but i wanted to share some news: VOIDXWITCH is no longer just my handle, but the name of an audio, visual, and ritual performance project that is currently my main creative focus.

those who are familiar with my work in Blood and Dust will have an idea of the general emotional scope and intensity, though the style here is different, more electronic, and more personal. it is very dark and weird, and the first album’s looking like a danceable purge with a touch of gallows humour. i have another related announcement coming in a couple days, which will be the first taste of what this project’s all about.

thanks to @ritualdust for helping me with the wicked logo!

@VanisleJay it wasn't me! t'was another cello-toting human

hey, i’m hex (they/them), a nonbinary artist and musician living in Tiohtià:ke/so-called montréal. i’ve hopped over from another instance to the Punk House to connect with more people in the local community.

i’m in an experimental ritual ambient/horror drone band called Blood and Dust. i play cello sadly and aggressively, and sing likewise. i’m also currently learning music production and working on a solo project (details TBA). i like to dress up, wear corpse paint, and take photos in creepy places at night.

weird, goth, introvert, and a late-blooming and recovering queer living with chronic illness and pain. i have an affinity for things dark and deep, and my art and interests lean heavily towards these things on various levels. i’m an anarchist stepping into their integrity with lots to learn. witch.

looking forward to getting to know more people on here and at events.
