† WE THE HALLOWED is a Portland, OR "open-source-art-religion" started out of a dingy basement by outside artists of all calibers in Portland, Oregon. It is run by myriad of pragmatic and PRAGMAGICK® ARTISTS across various mediums to create a community of disparate artists and thinkers that aide one another in actualizing individual visions and personal masterworks within a collective, SPIRITUAL FRAMEWORK.
† PLEASE LISTEN AND SUBSCRIBE TO OUR ART AND OCCULT CAST:
† For most it is a skill-share, a cork board and trade/barter community that dissolves the aloof machinations modern art is so riddled with. Your individuality should be SHARED AND CELEBRATED, not clutched and buried. It is considered a "contradiction" to be two things, especially in the case of being a realized and unique individual while also belonging to a greater whole. That is a blatant lie. BE AN EXCEPTION.
† We are all individually purposeful and necessary as part of a greater construct. Let us show you our intent by our collective's output in real time at our MONTHLY PERFORMANCE SALONS at THE WAYPOST every fourth Thursday (we also book and celebrate non-affiliates, too), our bi-monthly ZINE consisting of WtH writers/artists/poets/printmakers and our upcoming COMPILATIONS which showcase an absurd amount of audiomancy-driven ASSOCIATED MUSICIANS/song-writers/engineers and curators not to mention FULL ALBUMS AND MUSIC RELEASES by an array of bands and performers.
†"Duh," you scoff, well, just a minute, there is also a bounty of philosophical, spiritual and psychological musings WE THE HALLOWED provides. This shared and subtle psychic identity is vexed with folklore, symbolism, constructive practices, and self-discovery exercises that provide a continuum that doesn't get in between but celebrates the space between:</h5>
"The WTH symbol (or "sigil") denotes a strict adherence to the initiate's artistic purpose, their unwavering motivation to progress themselves through their works, and to offer their experiences as council to those who aim to be the exceptions among the vast population of disgruntled examples".
About the creator, REVEL ROSZ:
REVEL ROSZ (Travis Keats Ross) is a Portland, Oregon based composer, conjurer and Revelator of the art collective / art religion, WE THE HALLOWED.
He's remained fervently creative as a song writer/performer (for decades as DAKOTA SLIM, SPARE SPELLS, Soothsingers, etc.) as a fiction writer, active online journalist for popular blogs like DISINFO & Esotericana, audio engineer for X.RAY.FM's show The Magic Hour, host and editor of the podcast Wayward Worship, filmmaker and video artist for music videos and as a digital designer. His many projects are wide-released and easily found across the internet.
His years as an active community/event organizer, booker, live sound engineer, host and performer (currently across a many local venues) allowed him to manifest his true passion, a pragmatic art collective and "pragmagick" collective of disparate artists titled WE THE HALLOWED. The community has one intention, the experimentation and celebration of metaphysical means for use within the creative process. Last year, W†H released a literary zine, a music compilation, released individual members' albums and manifested an occult/art podcast that showcase disparate luminaries and artists, and celebrate their art and ideas through discussion and performance. W†H just ended a successful, six-month long residency at the Waypost in Portland, OR.
