Telesma wins Reverbnation Contest – Slot at Camp Bisco

Telesma wins Reverbnation Contest – Slot at Camp Bisco

Reverbnation Contest Winner Telesma Selected From Over 2,400 Entries!
For the first year, Camp Bisco tapped the Reverbnation community for a slot on the Showcase Stage. The festival received an astounding 2,404 entries from bands, DJs and musicians from around the world. We are thrilled to announce that this year’s winner is Telesma from Baltimore. Exploding on the Baltimore music scene in 2002, Telesma soon developed a loyal local fan base and then shook the underground festival scene from coast to coast. Alex Grey, the noted visionary artist, hailed Telesma as “shamanic… with a sense of an underlying universal wisdom…a rare combination in a rock/techno band.” You can catch Telesma at 1:30pm on the Showcase Stage on Saturday, July 8th.

About Alex Grey:
Visionary artist Alex Grey was first recognized for his ground-breaking “Sacred Mirrors” collection which took 10 years to complete.  This collection, featuring a unique series of 21 life sized paintings,” takes the viewer on a journey toward their own divine nature by examining, in detail, the body, mind, and spirit”. It was during this period that he developed his depictions of the human body that “x-ray” the multiple layers of reality, and reveal the interplay of anatomical and spiritual forces. Alex Grey has since received worldwide acclaim. In pop culture his timeless works have appeared in Tool’s “10,000 Days”, their “Lateralus” album and stage show, The Beastie Boys’ “Ill Communication” and Nirvana’s “In Utero”. Grey’s artwork has also appeared on the cover of Sub Rosa, Newsweek, High Times, Shaman’s Drum, Shambhala Sun, Juxtapoz, Vision,

Lost Symbols @ The Wind Up Space (Baltimore, MD)
“One People, One Planet, Hon! Hidden Meanings of Common Symbols”

Dr. Robert R. Hieronimus will present a slide show and demonstration on the Hidden Meanings of Common Symbols in conjunction with a performance by TELESMA at The Windup Space on 12 W. North Ave. in Baltimore on Saturday, November 14, 2009.

Decoding the reverse of America’s Great Seal as a symbol for the God within and the connection to higher consciousness has been the life work of Hieronimus. (He first contacted the State Department about that mysterious eye and pyramid on the one dollar bill in 1968!) Thanks to the best-selling ability of Dan Brown, tens of millions of readers are now being introduced to Hieronimus’s work in the form of Brown’s new novel, The Lost Symbol. On November 14th, Baltimore music fans and art lovers will hear a personal explanation of how our nation’s most common symbols ultimately point to the same thing: unity, balance, and attaining a state of higher consciousness. Learn how to decipher symbols for yourself. Next door in the large warehouse space there is also the opportunity for attendees to paint their own symbolic artwork.
After his presentation, Dr. Hieronimus and assistants will create symbolic mural to the transformative music of TELESMA
Selections of Hieronimus’s 40 years of symbolic art will be on display at The Windup Space from November 1 through December 31, 2009. Also on display will be selections from the rock and roll celebrity photographs of Stuart Zolotorow. From Brooks Robinson to Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Willie Nelson, Zolotorow has photographed and published some of the legends of popular music and sports. Cultural heroes and mythology are essential to the health of stable society, and Zolotorow’s photos of our contemporary heroes remind us all to aim for the stars and that our purpose in life is to change the world.
Afterward, Neil Kurlander (Soul Mob Productions DJ) will bless the decks till 2am.

A portion of the proceeds to benefit Station North Arts & Entertainment, Inc., a nonprofit organization.

Sponsored in part by the Mill Valley Cultural Arts Umbrella, Inc. and Umbrella Radio and Joe Squared Pizza.
