Sinclair & ATF
The Chapel Is Empty
Vanessa Sinclair & Akoustik Timbre Frekuency: “The Chapel Is Empty”
A brand new collaboration between British sound sorcerer Akoustik Timbre Frekuency and American artist/poet Vanessa Sinclair takes us into evocative vistas of vibration and revelation. Sinclair’s words and sensual voice sometimes floats on top of ATF’s sea of sounds, and sometimes submerges itself to challenge us from the depths. The magic lies in the words, in the performance and in the stripped honesty of Sinclair’s subconscious contacts. The merging of these two talents creates a listening experience that completely defies times and space; one that is eager to tell you stories and convey emotions that perhaps don’t really exist anywhere else than in the listener's mind…Who’s to say? Who’s to tell? The chapel may be empty, as Sinclair’s poetry suggests, but it’s definitely waiting to be filled again. And this is what it sounds like.

Anton LaVey – Into the Devil's Den
"In 1989, I met Anton LaVey for the first time. At this time in his life, LaVey was seeing only a select few people. For this film, I've met and interviewed some of them, to try and create a composite image of what he was really like, and what he meant to these people. It's a memory lane trip, filled with personal stories, dark humor, great music and never before seen material with the "Black Pope" himself." – Carl Abrahamsson
Anton LaVey was many things to many people: musician, magician, writer, wild animal trainer, police photographer, film buff, founder of a magical group, and possibly of a new religion, and yes… He was a Satanist. With his creation of the infamous Church of Satan in 1966, and his bestselling book The Satanic Bible in 1969, Anton LaVey changed the ballgame in many ways. Here was a free-spirited San Francisco based group neither in favour of mind-expanding drugs, nor of peace & love for its own sake. Here was a group that was decidedly, outspokenly anti-Christian. Here was a group that brought dark pro-sexual psychodrama and the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche straight into American living rooms and TV couches. Anton LaVey became a celebrity scapegoat who basked in the attention, and made a successful career out of it. But who was Anton LaVey behind the public persona that so easily provoked primitive American Christians and other intolerants? Who was this enigmatic “American Adversary”?
This film contains never before shown interview material with LaVey, private photographs, and rare recordings, plus in-depth interviews with Blanche Barton, Peter Gilmore, Peggy Nadramia, Bob Johnson, Kenneth Anger, Michael Moynihan, Mitch Horowitz, Ruth Waytz, Larry Wessel, Margie Bauer, Jack Stevenson, and Jim Morton.
