Sun Duel is an open-ended esoteric musical project of the Universal Love Upload, creating inspirational sounds for use by its members as well as the general public.

Over-arching thematic concerns include an existential examination of Self in its processes, such as the nature of Time as biological function and social construct, “Otherness” in gender and sexuality, and the co-opting of public spaces as sites of trance and transgression. We emerge in works of instability and hybridity. Through storytelling and the performative application of ceremonial and archetypal signifiers, we confront and inhabit Mystery, Cruelty, Joy, and the Uncanny.

This structuring of duration on site is achieved through theatricality, prayer/ focused intention, and the internalization of collage processes so that the resulting sounds, images and actions come to function somewhat as marks on a map, and the primacy of individual works is subsumed into conceptual clusters to be read in whole or in part- a system in continual growth and collapse.

Magick, Music and Ritual 16 - Caller At The Crossroads 01:30

Caller At The Crossroads

Song for Astaroth, and dedicated to S/he the same. For accompanied voice and regular recital.

This Is Not An Hermetic Library Anthology Album -1 - Burn The Rent

Burn The Rent

Burn The Rent employs collage, levity, and delivered visualization via rhythm and storytelling. We invite the listener to join us remotely in this process. Our aim is liberatory flux, and the collapse of fascist ossifications.

Magick, Music and Ritual 13 - For the Convening of a Sexual Congress 10:04

For the Convening of a Sexual Congress

Ambient adornment for solitary or group rituals celebrating a birthday, half moon, or changing of the seasons. This track can be incorporated into numerous ceremonial circumstances involving the passage from one state into another.

Magick, Music and Ritual 12 - Sun Duel - Lunar Pisces Temple Expansion

Lunar Pisces Temple Expansion

In this track ULU's Lunar Pisces Temple session is layered, spliced, and overdubbed to compress the experience into a prismatic aural hyper-sigil. Analog effects and digital filters further ornament the sonic circle, and hymns and narration have been embedded for the home practitioner.

Magick, Music and Ritual 9 - A Ladder

A Ladder

From the forthcoming album Between Dragons. Copyright 2013 Universal Love Upload.
