2000 – album as Benedict Roff-Marsh
I had been fascinated with the Hermetic Qabalah for some years. I never got all white-robed and candle-burning about it like some musicians a few years later. Being a bit logical, the system part of it appealed to me, I was fascinated in how it creates a metaphysical model of our psychology.
To be suitably anti-mystical I drew my tree using Photoshop in the the form of a folder on the desktop of my Apple Mac with files as my Spheres. If you check the time at the top right you’ll see my tip to Iron Maiden and our mushroom-cloud ending at the hands of the Doomsday Clock.
Form is the point where nothingness starts to become somethingness. Not an easy concept for most of us to grasp.
Balance is what we all hope for. It lives in the few moments that the see-saw of life finds equilibrium. There is majesty and beauty, subtlety and delicacy all at once.
