cult of zir could be explained as a transmedia project conducted by portland’s nolon ashley, sometimes with the assistance of friends.

nolan ashley is a multimedia artist, musician, and ritualist performer, who has worked in several contexts spanning a diverse spectrum of genre which include avant electronic pop, psychedelic and progressive rock, darkwave, immediatist improvisational experimentalism, and electronic noise.

he has performed as part of bogville creature features, soriah, nequaquam vacuum, power circus, trance to the sun, submarine fleet, societas insomnia, day of the zombie, julian tulip’s licorice, ilias malorum, and an assortment of other collaborative explorations in cascadia’s mutant family of “otherly” inclined artists.

“cult of zir is really a singer as well, by the name of nolon ashley, though his voice serves chiefly as a raw acoustic source for deconstructed convolutions via sampling and effects. the remaking of sound is mr. ashley’s obsession when performing alone …

cult of zir is a coming out for his long-term basement experiments. the purest expression of his creative spark.”

– noah mickens

the tools chiefly employed to the cult of zir’s ends include abstract approaches to electronic musick, collage and cutup esoteric imagery both physical and virtual, and time-based ritual performance technology.

signal sorcery utilized for intentions of manifestation and transmutation. modern memetic mysticism toward effective change and clear perception.
