Common Eider, King Eider is a musical and ritual collective created as a vehicle to explore the intersectional possibilities between creativity, spirituality, magick, and political action. Over the past 13 years, CEKE have released 13 albums on such labels as Cyclic Law (DE), Cold Spring (UK), Sentient Ruin (US), Black Horizons (US), and Consouling Sound (BE). Elements of musique concrète, field recordings, modern composition, black metal, and improvisation create soundscapes of both beauty and terror, sadness and hope. Voice, viola, antler, dirt, and bone channel energies and voices speaking to both the sorrow of environmental destruction and the negative imposed psychic frameworks placed on the body, but also of beauty, hope, and of finding the narrow moonlit path winding into the center of the darkest woods. There strength lies, solace is found, and rage is unleashed.
