Sonic Necromancy
Primitive Ways Arts

One of the raddest things about live music, especially in metal and punk rock, are the bands that take care with their stage presence. The ones that bring props, and create an atmosphere in which to conduct their live ritual. We were recently at the YAITW show in Pomona, and they killed it with the smoky, scented air filled with incense, and the skinned sheep’s head that at one point ended up in the crowd, only to be hurled back on stage. Or there is also Skinfather’s epic chain mic stand that they rocked the CVLT Nation 1st Anniversary show with. One person who understands the importance of atmosphere is Laura Greenwood of Primitive Ways Arts, who creates some truly breathtaking mic stands. As one of the co-founders of Primitive Ways Records, who just released the OCCULTIST demo, Laura creates amazing, haunting statuary using animal bones and found objects. Her materials include cow, deer, sheep, goat, squirrel, bird, woodchuck, beaver, possum, raccoon and so many more artifacts of nature and man. They are carefully crafted into demons and talismans, wands and mic stands that showcase the beauty of the objects while binding them into other forms imbued with power and energy. She just opened up an Etsy shop where you can purchase her curios…after the jump, check out a gallery of her works…enter the boneyard…
