“The uterus is a hollow muscular organ located in the female pelvis between the bladder and rectum. The ovaries produce the eggs that travel through the fallopian tubes. Once the egg has left the ovary it can be fertilized and implant itself in the lining of the uterus. The main function of the uterus is to nourish the developing fetus prior to birth.”
^ That’s some information from the medic encyclopedia describing the regular uterus. But what is a psychic uterus? Erleen Nada has a song and accompanying video clip that is all about the psychic uterus and watching and hearing it on repeat I still feel like falling in the mist of the unknown. It’s pretty weird the things that Erleen Nada does music wise, as she manages in many of her songs & video clips to hit the repetitive catchy pop structure & yet in many ways it’s all still shredded in pure mystery.
‘Psychic uterus’ is one of them that comes within such poppy forms, a looping haunting witch crafty melody and rhythmic stable beat with Erleen Nada singing her ‘psychedelic uterus’ song on top. The visual section of the song even adds more mystery to the material then it already had as a standalone song, it is as if we are able to watch something that is secretly only for the initiated.
Initiated in what? You may ask’ and I don’t have an answer, only Erleen Nada and initiated friends will probably know the full amount of it. To me as just your regular kind of viewer it’s as if it’s some kind of scene Stanley Kubrick had hidden through cryptic ways on a show-reel of his ‘eyes wide shut’ movie. It is genius in the way that it shows you all (or a lot) and yet I don’t know what I’m seeing; is this perhaps some sacred normally hidden from sight ‘psychic uterus’ initiation? An initiation that only the initiated will recognize and know what it is fully about?
I think it is fascinating to clearly have my eyes and ears open and yet do not hear or see. Yes, I do hear the music & yes I do see the video; but yet I do not see or hear it. I can play it on repeat, binge watch it like an addicted YouTube clicker; but it will still be like someone had pull a veil over my eyes and some kind of magic spell inside my ears.
The visual side seems to be some kind of ritual, perhaps a trance like recreation of a dream. There are masks, candles, faces behind veils, lots of smoke and for the conspiracy theorists out there ‘even a checkerboard floor!’ I do not know or understand any of it, and yet I think that’s the fascinating part of it. It must be that I personally don’t have a psychic uterus (or a regular one), but even without; the ‘psychedelic uterus’ music video is something that registers as something special. A bit of hidden behind doors secrecy displayed in a ‘all-in-your-face electric-magic spell-for-ears-and-eyes-kind-of-style. Will you be able to see or hear it?
p.s. because it is Sunday at the time of penning this up… If you haven’t seen the lost and found 1992 film of Jello Biafra interviewing the unfo cult Unarius (footage edited by Erleen Nada) Absolutely worth a watch!
