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.

Oneida – Preteen Weaponry Album Review

I’ll admit it; I had no intentions of ever purchasing another Oneida disc. I love the band and would rank them as one of the country’s premiere psychedelic acts, but with eight full lengths (of which I own six), I pretty much figured I’d heard their entire bag of tricks. Their last album, 2006’s Happy...Read...

Erica Steiner Artist Interview

"Whether this impulse is made manifest in the form of an everyday act like putting on jewelry, or in an overt act of ritual, such as the adornment of a religious icon with flower garlands, we as humans are ubiquitously driven to decorate our world, to sanctify it, and to beautify it with ornament."

Kinski Live Show Review & Process Interview : Balancing Music And Cinema, Rock And Experimentation
