NORDIC FIRE 


A VIDEO MIX BY WILLIAM THOMAS

 

Having personally witnessed and invoked the intercession of shamanic forces in the defense of British Columbia’s last coastal rainforests, this remix has been assembled with the utmost humility, gratitude and respect for the talent, dedication and intent of its performers, camera operators, editors and producers.   

 

Summoning and co-celebrating the shared healing and protective Eros of wild creatures – including the sacred human dyad – these lyrics are said to draw on ancient Icelandic poetry, as well as “linguistic reconstructions” of runic inscriptions carved on old Northern European bones and “a runic staff found in Bergen.”

 

Dismissed by terrified Latin observers as the sounds of “howling dogs,” the “low growling, hissing and forked fingers” are based on “ancient descriptions of Seiðr magic” – according to one informed listener.

 

In assembling this montage, it is my hope that those who resonate to these Proto-Germanic ritual songs and chants will seek out, purchase and support the work of the artists represented here.
