Guest Host 

Working as an author, photographer, and dubbing himself ‘the experiential mystic’, James Oroc is a citizen of the world who resides between the Dominican Republic, New Orleans, and Black Rock City.

The early version(s) of his book Tryptamine Palace (about the rare entheogen 5-MeO-DMT) is believed to be the first book written for and distributed (gifted) at the Burning Man festival. Since the subsequent publication of the final version of Tryptamine Palace for a global audience by Inner Traditions in 2009, Roc has lectured regularly on the relationship between the endogenous tryptamines (DMT and 5-MeO-DMT) and the Mystical Experience at conferences and visionary festivals around the world.  He has also contributed articles to The Entheogen Review, the MAPS journal, and the COSM journal; and is the curator of the recently launched web-information site www.dmtsite.com.




"Transfigurations"
Presentation by Alex Grey


Transfigurations
An illustrated talk by Alex Grey [with Allyson Grey]

As part of his 60th birthday celebration, Alex will present his Soul's journey through Art.  His renowned paintings of glowing anatomical bodies and figures made of fire and eyes "X-ray" the multiple layers of reality and reveal the complex integration of body, mind, soul and spirit. Alex's history begins with childhood reflections on mortality, transgressive performance art and psychedelic experiences that led to the mystical breakthroughs, paintings and sculptures included in his books Sacred Mirrors, The Mission of Art, Transfigurations, Art Psalms, and Net of Being, and to co-founding of CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors.

Grey's unique series of twenty-one life-sized paintings, the Sacred Mirrors, present the physical and subtle anatomy of an individual in the context of cosmic, biological and technological evolution. Alex's artworks have been exhibited throughout the world and have appeared in venues as diverse as the multi-platinum album art of TOOL, the Beastie Boys and Nirvana, Newsweek & Time magazines, the Discovery Channel and the film "CoSM: The Movie."

Exhibited worldwide, Alex Grey is one of the planet’s most extraordinary visionary artists. Grey's art inspires rock stars and scientists, illuminating the divine imagination.   Join Alex Grey on his special birthday for an unforgettable pictorial one-man show, as this unique artist and thinker on art’s mission, shares his life and work.  

“Grey’s vision of a flawed but perfectible mankind stands as an antidote to the cynicism and spiritual malaise prevalent in much contemporary art.”      – New York Times

Luis Campos (dreamcatcher,  psycheground, NYC)Producer and DJ Luis Campos has launched a professional music career at the age of 14 in his childhood home Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Throughout the first decade of his career he held residencies at some of the country’s most revered clubs, including Sao Paulo's Limelight, Victoria Pub, New QG, Gitana among others. Luis's talents were also showcased at Brazil’s most prestigious music festivals such as Skol Beats and the Love Parade attended by nearly 200,000 people. In the late 90s, Luis founded one of the first Brazil's live electronic band, Influx. At the release of MTV's first Amp album, Influx performed for over 30,000 people. It was one of the most memorable performances the band had experienced. Their track entitled "Crack" soon became an MTV favorite, gaining Influx popularity, which spread throughout Brazil, Europe, and North America. Beginning his international career in 2000 Luis had the opportunity to tour across America including Florida (Miami WMC), Massachusetts, New Jersey, California and New York.

Johnathan Singer - Multidimensional Visionary Art Mixologist




The entrepreneurial spirit drove Johnathan Singer from an early age. By 24, he’d begun a career in publishing a socially conscious lifestyle magazine in Southern California called “West Side Life.” This exposed him to a wide range of artists, musicians, presenters and live performance personnel.

Moved to become an artist in his own right, Singer began performing real-time multimedia light shows for the musicians he’d met while publishing the magazine. Pushing the boundaries of technology, his performances lead to a new art form incorporating computer-generated images, texture maps, custom 3D animations and special effects to inspire his audiences visual and auditory experience. Now an innovative Video Performance Artist, Singer has grown his own business performing around the world, mixing and integrating live visionary art with video to live music.

Along with creating content for world renowned Lighting Designers and VJs, Johnathan is designing and producing DVDs for music producers, musicians and visionary artists.
