IDES OF GEMINI PREMIERE "SEER OF CIRCASSIA" VIDEO
Today IDES OF GEMINI reveal the occult conjurings of their erotic Daciana Birladeanu-directed "Seer Of Circassia" video. Elaborates singer/bassist Sera Timms, "The concept of the album [Old World New Wave] traces the symbolic-psychological breakdown of a character over ten days ['Seer Of Circassia' takes place on day four]. We're working within the structures of psycho-spiritual alchemical transformation, utilizing Carl Jung's school of analytical psychology. Essentially we have a story of the psychological conflict of opposing forces -- yin-yang, male/female/dark light, etc. -- each driven by desire. The masculine archetype in this story desires control and structure, while the feminine archetype desires recognition and equality as it has been repressed in the 'Old World.' Our protagonist is the Emperor, based creatively on the last Emperor of Constantinople, who represents the ego, masculine, solar consciousness along with control, structure, domination, force and power."
