The term “psychedelic” is derived from the Greek words ψυχή (psyche, “soul”) and δηλοῦν (deloun, “to manifest”), translating to “soul-manifesting”. A psychedelic experience is characterized by the striking perception of aspects of one’s mind previously unknown, or by the creative exuberance of the mind liberated from its ostensibly ordinary fetters. Psychedelic states are an array of experiences including changes of perception such as hallucinations, synesthesia, altered states of awareness or focused consciousness, variation in thought patterns, trance or hypnotic states, mystical states, and other mind alterations. (Wikipedia)

The use of the keyword “psychedelic” on REDEFINE will encompass psychedelia’s role in music, film, art, multimedia, and movement.

Clipd Beaks – “Blood” Music Video

I personally would like to sum this video up with a YouTube comment (since we all know how educated and eloquent YouTube users generally are): “Great video, but not for the squeamish, squirmish, Amish or Hemophobic.” Well, then. Let’s just say the video certainly lives up to its song title. Directed by Nathan Budde.

Clipd Beaks – To Realize Album Review

Experimental rock bands seem to be getting a good amount of attention from the mainstream media these days, but within that subgenre is an even smaller subset of individuals who seem to channel the unconscious into droning, contemplative music that listeners can really lose themselves in. Similar to doom metal bands like Om, which lure...Read...
