Hymn to the Soul Serpent (Hymn to Nehebukau)

(With Setken, December 2020)

From Setken’s blurb:

Nehebukau is a lesser known Egyptian god, but a powerful deity nonetheless. This song is a prayer and a magick that evokes the deity Himself, as well as the nine aspects of the soul that the Egyptians articulated.

Industrial ambient techno composed by G.B. Marian forms the luscious backbone of this track, whilst the video features lyricist and director Setken indulging his fascination with Athletic Model Guild (AMG)-style films and Kemetic iconography, with ten of his paintings featuring Nehebukau being shown throughout.

Location scenery featured in this film clip includes a heritage listed Masonic Hall in Sandringham, Melbourne, and the picturesque Sorrento Back Beach on the Victorian Coast.
