Clear Stream Temple


Clear Stream Temple existed for many years as a project, in name only, of Abby Helasdottir, better known for her work as Gydja. In late 2001, world events provided Clear Stream Temple with the motivation to create music, and the result was the album XVI. This was released in a limited run through Shadowlight Kommunikations in early 2002. The album combined media noise, militant industrial, neo-classical, dark ambient, and Arabic music, in a unique blend of themes. Read more on Last.fm
Clear Stream Temple existed for many years as a project, in name only, of Abby Helasdottir, better known for her work as Gydja. In late 2001, world events provided Clear Stream Temple with the motivation to create music, and the result was the album XVI. This was released in a limited run through Shadowlight Kommunikations in early 2002. The album combined media noise, militant industrial, neo-classical, dark ambient, and Arabic music, in a unique blend of themes.

The tracks considered the way in which language was manipulated, if not outright butchered, by the Bush administration, and how world events were used as a justification for unprecedented US militarism. In 2003, the English industrial label Cold Spring Records expressed interest in reissuing XVI, describing it as a "genius mix of neo-classical, martial industrial, dark ambient. A timely attack on the US Bush Presidential administration and all that it has in store for us". The sound of the album, in turn, has been compared to Turbund Sturmwerk, Laibach, Test Dept, and Muslimgauze. The reissued version of XVI features two new tracks (Jahada and Novus Ordo Seclorum), and stunning new artwork by Mary MacGregor-Reid. In promotion of the XVI album, Clear Stream Temple have appeared live in Wellington and Auckland, with performances that have attracted both praise and outrage.

For their performance at the Circadian Rhythm event in Auckland, Clear Stream Temple's live line-up was completed with vocals by Justine (Artemesian) and percussion and dance by The Magdalene.
