Take this quote for example:
Having always been interested in art in all its apparitions, the two have continually attempted to combine their beliefs, hopes and fears into an all-encompassing sensual experience, primarily in the fields of music, film, writing and more recently web design, "the official Turquoise Hexagon Sun website will up and running by Easter 1998 with a section on BoC as well as 'THS Scripture' buyable in dead tree format, Music70 BoCumentaries and 'Emephant Diagram', the number cruncher", I am assured that all will become clear.
So, is THS Scripture (presumably The Hexagon Sun, or Turquoise Hexagon Sun) a book written by BoC? And what the hell is this "Emephant Diagram, the Number Cruncher" thing? Based on the "I am assured that all will become clear," part, it seems like Crofter himself didn't know either.
Then there were these quotes regarding subliminal messaging. In later interviews, particularly post-Geogaddi, they seemed to downplay the importance of subliminals, whereas in this interview, BoC emphasize their interest in them and specifically mention "triggers," which are associated with psychological programming and mind control theories. They even say that two members of Hexagon Sun are primarily interested in these elements.
In December of 1997, two other members joined the Hexagon Sun bunker, resulting in the acquisition of some "useful technology". Just who these other members remains a secret, as they "are more interested in the psychological capabilities of sounds and images than their aesthetics.
In terms of other artistic formats, they are keen to point out that the visual and literary side is by no means a colorful backdrop ... "It's not secondary to the music, it's all the same thing. We use video on stage, but it's not for wallpaper, it's got things in it which could damage you".
To witness a BoC live performance confirms their agenda, "We're not interested in ambient filmmaking, we are interested in triggers, embedding and subliminals ... (during a live performance) we like people to pay attention to the messages on the screens".
I was also fascinated with some of the non-English language TH-era interviews where they directly stated they intended to perform live again if/when they could "make the experience really special."
Anyone else have any favorites or recommendations? I've been trying to go through them all but there are many I haven't gotten to.
