Biography

K 11 is a project of Italian sound/installation artist Pietro Riparbelli that deals with the world of radio signals, trans-communication and other invisible phenomena, to create a dimension where the only sound sources are signals from shortwave radio receivers.

When constructing works under the K 11 project, Riparbelli uses only sounds from the atmosphere and from invisible, unknown sources. In this way, Riparbelli creates more esoteric works than his field recording based material as PT-R, and ‘Voices From Thelema’ is perhaps the logical conclusion of such an enterprise.

‘Voices from Thelema’ is an instrumental trans-communication action with short wave radio receivers realized inside Thelema Abbey in Cefalu, October 14, 2007.

The ruined building stands derelict and on the verge of collapse, though still holds many secrets and has been a focus for much counter cultural activity since its foundation by Aleister Crowley in 1920 as a religious centre and commune where he could instruct disciples in his emerging Thelemic religion and systems of magick in a rural atmosphere, far from the overpowering prevailing morality of England.

Activities included meditation and ritual magick, as well as the sensationalised drug taking and sex magick. The wall of many of the rooms were painted with fantastic murals by Crowley himself, depicting many of the elementals and demons encountered in his magickal exercises, and the remains of many of these adorn the accompanying booklet.
