HILO-028-cover (Vanessa)

Vanessa Sinclair‘s compilation album Message 23 features 18 tracks of expansive and richly diverse music, spoken word and experimental sonic explorations into the cut-up technique, sexuality, necromancy and ‘pandrogeny‘. 18 internationally renown artists have collaborated with Vanessa on the creation of a vast sumptuous audio canvas which features sonically lush and exotic sculptures of Vanessa’s sublime, sensuous and deeply perceptive poetry. Vanessa Sinclair, PsyD, is a psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City. She is a founding member of Das Unbehagen: A Free Association for Psychoanalysis, which facilitates psychoanalytic lectures, classes, and events in and around New York City. Together with artist Katelan Foisy, she explores the magic and artistic expression of the cut-up method and the third mind at Chaos of the Third MindVanessa’s book of poetry ‘Switching Mirrors‘ is published on Carl Abrahamsson‘s Trapart Books and delves into the unconscious actively utilising the ”third mind” as developed by William S Burroughs and Brion Gysin. Vanessa Sinclair roams through suggestive vistas of magic, witchcraft, dreams, psychoanalysis, sex and sexuality (and more). Causal apprehensions are disrupted by a flow of impressions that open up the mind of the reader. What’s behind language and our use of it? What happens when random factors and the unconscious are given free reign in poetic form? Switching Mirrors is what happens. A brand new Sheer Zed track Message 23 is featured exclusively on this album. Message 23 is a warm, pulsating and hypnotic slice of scintillating electronic music which exudes a seductive enchantment over the listener. A true mind and body experience. The track Message 23 was mastered by Gregg Janman at Hermetech Mastering. The album will be released on the 5th May 2017 through the Highbrow Lowlife label and is pre-ordering on iTunes.
