June 7, 2012 (Jacumba) – Telemagica’s Galaxia 2012 takes place June 8, 9 and 10 beginning at 12:00 p.m. on Friday on the grounds of the Institute of Perception (Railroad Street) in Jacumba.
The event is a yearly gathering of collective performance art dedicated to the evolution of the human spirit through the arts.
TeleMagica provides a platform for artists, musicians, painters, sculptors, performance artists, poets, photographers, and creative ritualists to come together for an exchange of ideas and presentation of their works.
Over 70 bands and 20 DJ’s will be playing this year, spanning a variety of genres: Psychedelic Rock Experimental Magic (Suishou No Fune-Japan), Acid Folk Punk (Mind Martian Collective-LA), Indie folk pop (Brandon Flores Stuffed Animals-LA), Urban ethnic fusion (WolfRobe-Mar Vista), Folk Garage Hip Hop (Masacria Music-Hacienda Heights), Experimental Progressive Rock (Conspiracy of Angels-Oklahoma City), and others, too numerous to mention. Most musical performances also offer visual projections.
“For the artist, TeleMagica is necessary not only to promote connectivity and collaboration on projects, but also for rejuvenation in a world where support for non-commercial arts is rapidly evaporating. For festival participants, it offers the opportunity to change how they see, hear and dream. By channeling the unknown through new era arts, music, ritual movement and the ‘knowing of the earth’, participants’ senses are better aligned. This allows them the clarity to make better decisions, decisions that can be ‘out-of-the –box’ and that could potentially save the earth,” says Noor, a contemporary shaman artist of the Toltec lineage, and co-founder of Jacumba’s TeleMagica and the Institute of Perception.
