Today on the Solecast I’m interview Televangel formerly of Blue Sky Black Death. Televangel is a beatmaker/composer from Oakland currently residing in Portland, Oregon. Unlike most artists I bring on the Solecast to talk about their work and their politics, Televangel does it with his instrumental music, not vocals.
In this interview we discuss the origins of his project and the general concept behind it. We also talk about the themes he explores in his work; drone warfare, the anthrocene, crisis & mutual aid. We also talk about his path to radical politics and how the internet can be a critical tool for political education.
Televangel’s new album Emergency Hearts is available on bandcamp and spotify.
