The Wiccan Circle

MUSIC: Concretism

FILM: The Kill Shop

WORDS: Gareth E. Rees

Here’s some music from the ever-excellent Concretism. Chris Sharp’s world is  a sonic exploration of a rabies-blighted parallel past, frazzled by microwaves, where people in carefully-planned towns live in perpetual fear of nuclear obliteration.

Glued to their TVs, they might watch something like this…

‘The Wicca’ takes footage from the 1971 documentary The Power of the Witch and blends it with Sharp’s warped and fuzzy analogue electronics.

If you’re interested you can watch the full documentary: The Power of the Witch. There’s more from the video’s makers The Kill Shop here. And if you’d like to enter Concretism’s “grey world of dusty archival sounds, sinister public information films and Cold War Britain” then go here and listen, or follow on Twitter.
