Meontological Research Recordings
are primarily based on the pioneering experiments conducted by Michael Bertiaux of the OTOA and the La Couleuvre Noire. Bertiaux has developed a system of esoteric engineering - a form of metamathematical reality. The Meontological series is based on Bertiaux's neologism MEON. Ontology is the science of the metaphysics of being - MEONTOLOGY, therefore, goes beyond this to a fourth-dimensional extension of parapsychology, and concerns areas beyond current maps and explore ideas that seem to have existed anterior to modern man and from ultraterrestrial origins . TAGC are also researching areas of outsider science and the Pataphysical ideas derived from Alfred Jarry,Currently in preparation are Meontological Research Recordings 3+4. Recording 3 explores some of the central ideas expressed in the Micheal Bertaux Coulier Noire and Kenneth Grants Cult of Lam and Jack Whiteside Marvel Parsons ,it also explores new developments of Voudon Gnosticism and the implicit science that exists behind exoterics. Recording 4 centers around research into the development of methods and techniques to aid expanded consciousness following on from techniques derived from W.Grey Walter that influenced Brion Gysin,s work on the flicker frequencies and the work by Tony Conrad .

T.A.G.C The Anti Group Communications E.V.MMIX
The original idea for the Anti Group was devised by A. Newton & S.J. Turner (R.I.P) as early as 1978, with the intention of the formation of a multi-dimensional research & development project active in many related areas. Research and Development
of sound/film/video/performance and the documentation of each project was the fundamental "Modus Operandi". Strictly speaking TAGC are not a group, but a variable collection of individuals contributing under invitation and the directorship of Adi Newton, Underlining this basic idea lays the deeper philosophical and theoretical work of TAGC; The C derived from Communications and to also infer the DNA code of genetics. The primary concern of TAGC is the systematic research and development and documentation and the ,expansion of the connections and concepts that are explored and experimented within the fabric of sound, and its theoretical possibilities and its advancement..Also the expansion of Consciousness whether via applied use of computers and audio-visual technology or via arcane
systems of Magick or other Occult or esoteric sciences.
"An artist who is interested in all the structural problems of sensation and who examines with great objectivity and curiosity the possibility of sensorial enrichment innate in the perceptive capacity of man. His search, in short, is parascientific; he ventures into very particular areas, not limiting himself to theoretical discussion, as the dadaists did, but going into an actual examination of the semantic links to which we entrust ourselves daily with our senses. Obsessive repetition, the upsetting of our relationships, unconventional stimuli etc., constitute the instruments that permit us to examine the novelty of the reflexes of our conscience, and therefore also the novelty of the ways that they reveal themselves."Brion Gysin (Notes on Painting)
