LAND OF DECAY RELATED: The Unholy Bow (Book)

For 2011 LOCRIAN member TERENCE HANNUM has been making a publication every other month. January's NEGATIVE LITANIES was the compendium documenting the monthly 2010 series and exhibition. March's ABLATION. was a clandestine dissection of some video footage featuring BLOODYMINDED. For May HANNUM joined forces with frequent collaborator SCOTT TRELEAVEN and made DEATH POSTURE. For July he collaborated with ALEXANDER BINDER and they made DARK MATTER/DUNKLE MATERIE while for September he created PURIFICATION. For his final publication of the year he teamed up with 5NAKEFORK RECORDS and published his first bound book, THE UNHOLY BOW.

Slowly the crowd gathers, heads hung as the musicians pick up their instruments. Upon the first note of feedback the heads start moving. Both performer and witness begin a ritualized dance in a flurry of hair, a profane genuflection. An unholy bow.

THE UNHOLY BOW is the final publication in artist TERENCE HANNUM's bi-monthly publication series for 2011. This issue focuses on the group ritual of the headbang ubiquitous in heavy metal culture, by cropping drawings and digital photo collages into a printed cadence and features a brief musing cadence from the artist.
