Avoiding any predetermination or program, as well as any apparent leadership, and being open to miscellaneous chance factors, the Sect produced mostly improvised music, which could vary stylistically from minimalistic or meditative ambient pieces to industrial mixed with some avant-jazz elements, and from brutal noise – especially live – to dark folk songs, and to “post-rock” of sorts (in a broad sense) – or, trying to say it more definitely, “post-glam” or “after-prog-rock” – especially shortly before the disbanding, when, not intending to be a “rock group”, the sectarians literally played rock (as one may play the fool). Overall, the sound of the Sect was marked by the use of assorted lo-fi equipment, old-fashioned analogue synthesizers, guitars and metallic percussion. Due to its anarchism and “acephality”, Sekta Phoenixa’s concerts were often chaotic, and thus disturbing, raising the scent of upheaval in the air. The gigs were frequently accompanied with dissemination of apocalyptic manifestos or showing self-made films; the Sect also carried out a series of provocative and controversial performances in collaboration with avant-garde artist and actor V.
Atom, directing then the futurist theatric group TTS-1. Playing upon the ambiguity of its name, Sekta Phoenixa was often considered to be a “totalitarian sect”, and so exercised in obscurantism willingly, contouring the (quasi)religion of “death of god”, and more than this – experiencing that form of sociality, which was the amorphous, pointless religiosity that had nothing for its object – nothing but the absence and crush of any sort of authority. ————————————————————————————————————————————— The last staff: johnjane – synthesizers, el. & ac. guitars, bass, percussion serpent – el.
