Ivry
by Soundwalk Collective with Patti Smith
IVRY from the album The Peyote Dance
Directed by Stephan Crasneanscki

With The Peyote Dance, Patti Smith joins experimental sound outfit Soundwalk Collective in a work in tribute of French poet Antonin Artaud. Soundwalk Collective’s founder Stéphan Crasneanscki traveled to the Norogachi municipality of Mexico’s Sierra Tarahumara (otherwise known as the Copper Canyon), where Artaud himself traveled in 1936—curious to know whether a peyote shaman from the Rarámuri people could free him of an opioid addiction. Soundwalk Collective recorded in both the village and cave where Artaud lived, capturing sounds earthly and human, delicate and divine. Cool Hunting

In 1947, Artaud wrote "The Peyote Dance", where he describes his transcendental experience with peyote in Mexico a decade earlier.

“Taking peyote in those regions, you have the feeling that everything is communicating with you as it was for Artaud – nothing has changed,” said Stéphan Crasneanscki, the founder of Soundwalk Collective. “On an atomic level, there is no separation between you and any other organism: trees, leaves, flowers, but also stones and sand. There is no duality. Everything is embedded, everything has a soul, and the soul is timeless. We are not alone. These sonic spaces are pre-existing to us and will exist after us, to be able to listen to them is an act of presence.” Smith then listened to and improvised over their tracks: “For a moment,” she said, “one is Artaud.” The video includes footage of the poet’s legendary performance in the Passion of Joan of Arc, along with the last images of him in his chair.-Rolling Stone

As a kid I'd encounter peyote buttons on my grandmother's ranch in So. Texas. It's always #drugweek somewhere.
