HERE IS THE FIRST REVIEW OF TAGC’S MEON3!!! AND IT’S REALLY AMAZING! WRITTEN BY VITTORE BARONI AND PUBLISHED ON THE FORTHCOMING MARCH ISSUE OF BLOW UP MAGAZINE (THE BEST ITALIAN MUSIC MAG) #meon3

TAGC :: MEONTOLOGICAL RESEARCH RECORDING III — BOOK + USB CARD + DIGITAL STREAMING — RIZOSFERA/ARMCOMM cat. no. NUKFM013

“In the rich discography of Clock DVA and their parallel project The Anti Group / TAGC, Adi Newton has often combined his sonic research with theoretical essays and related images. Never before, however, has one of his works been proposed in such a fully multimedia form as the sumptuous volume of almost 200 pages plus an USB card with audio and video content (and links for digital streaming from the RizoStream platform) designed and developed by Rizosfera for the third part of the “Meontological Research” (started in 1987-88 with two albums of “ambisonics” and the booklet entitled Rotogravure). We already had a tasting of such an experience in the magazine La Deleuziana 10 [see BU # 269 and Chaos Variation III with Obsolete Capitalism and Adi Newton, Rizosfera, 2018]. The volume, richly illustrated with historical realia, original collages and stills from TAGC videos, develops with texts by Newton and other writers, themes dear to the musician, such as the theories of some key characters of twentieth-century occultism (Crowley, Spare , Grant, Bertiaux, etc.), the fantastic and surreal art of authors such as Clark Ashton Smith and Pavel Tchelitchew, medieval and Renaissance teratology, the combination of aerospace research and sexual magic in the work of Jack Parsons, the interception of signals of extraterrestrial origin and more generally any sort of link between esotericism and technology (meontology is “the research around not-being”). The subtitle of the work, «Transmissions from the Trans Yuggothian Broadcast Station» suggests that a Lovecraftian intergalactic radio station is transmitting a series of audiovisual experiments, in which techniques of superimposition, overlapping, mirroring, transformation and reiteration of images of the above mentioned authors, create arcane and hypnotic sequences close to digital magical acts as in Kenneth Anger or Harry Smith’s short films full of symbolism. The eight films, accompanied by an embracing sound between space ambient and dark chill-out music, have been conceived to be presented with simultaneous projections on the four semi-transparent plastic walls of a large cubic structure that houses the performers inside, in an immersive experience of occult psychedelia at 360 degrees. In the final one hour-long documentary shot and edited by Pamela Eddington and Gabriel Edvy, we can witness the set up and the first presentation of Meon III with its futuristic Cube, in Leipzig in 2011, with the collaboration of Maurizio “TeZ” Martinucci and Shara Vasileva. Overall this is a unique and innovative product, concluding a project which began in 2009 and of which Adi Newton should be really proud. ” Vittore Baroni (BLOW UP Journalist)
