Somehow commuting between his studio in Chicago and his apartment in London Harmon creates visual and sonic abstractions. Often influenced by occult themes his work over the last decade has developed the theoretical and practical applications for the use of Transcendental Cinema in occult ritual. Utilizing mystical and occult texts as subliminal content within an experimental media framework. Beyond his work as a media artist Harmon is a filmmaker, sound artist, curator, and record producer (mostly for the venerated Jazz label Delmark).
There is more than one artist with this name: 1) Helix is a heavy metal band that formed in 1974 for a Battle of the Bands contest in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada and is best known for their 1984 single "Rock You". The original lineup consisted of singer Brian Vollmer, guitarists Brent Doerner and Paul Hackman, bassist Keith Zurbrigg and drummer Brian Doerner. In 1992, Hackman died when the group's van rolled down a 40-foot enbankment after a concert in Vancouver.
Brokeback 2011 consists of Pete Croke, Jim Elkington, Chris Hansen, and Douglas McCombs. They've spent the past winter and spring working on a new batch of songs. This fall they'll be playing the first Brokeback shows since 2008. More later... Brokeback is the name of Tortoise bassist Douglas McCombs' side project. In 1999, he released the project's first recording, Field Recordings From the Cook County Water Table, which revealed a slightly less constricted version of the post-rock sound Tortoise had made famous.
The band was formed, in order to win a £5 bet, in 1982 by ex scout leader, The Doctor and Steve Mcguire (The name "The Doctor," was assumed after the man had failed to gain entry into Medical School). 15 years later the Doctor is still waiting for his fiver!
At the time the Doctor was a top London DJ at his club "The Clinic," where he was single handedly responsible/ guilty for the "Psychedelic revival" of the period.
http://magdalenasolis.com Lush warm sonic swells, all wreathed in thick swaths of serious psych guitar, the sound constantly shifting from tranquil and dreamlike, to blown out and druggy/droney and way tripped out, heady and hypnotic and easily some of the best kaleidoscopic kosmische space/drone/psych we've heard.
