Illusion of Art is bad pretentious music for bad pretentious French art films. Picture a black and white movie with a crying mime doing housework in midmorning closing with the word Fin; you won't be far off.
Illusion of Art is textural progressive music done with obscure processes with a preoccupation with Hellenized Judeo-Christian mythos as well as other esoteric topics no one is interested in. Listening, one could find samples from orchestras, Nintendos, Commodore 64's, vintage synths, obsessiveness about surrealist films from the 1920's, Valentinus, German opera, Zoroastrianism, Jungian psychology, and the theories of David Bohm, as well a compulsion to use trackers and other software and electronic equipment not very popular with the creation of music.
Graham Hill is the sole member of Illusion of Art and writes and performs all the music. The project started in the summer of 2000 as an outlet for pent-up musical frustration to be vented. The process is to conceive the song, then to mock, denigrate, and finally destroy it. What is left to be heard are the miserable final days of the song up to its execution.
To date, no one actually listens to Illusion of Art and it is understandable as to why.
Not at this time.
Anything and not everything has to be music.
Old computer equipment and software that no one uses with live instruments
