When Guy Blakeslee regained consciousness in a Los Angeles hospital on March 14 2020 he awakened into a world much changed. The night before, he had been struck by a car as he walked across the street. While he was unconscious the world had gone into lockdown. He soon found that his brain had changed too. When he sat at the piano a few days later he was amazed at his newfound understanding of the relationship between his hands, the notes and the keys.
This began a journey of healing through music and a whole new sonic approach for the veteran underground musician. Best known as “Entrance” and as the guitar wielding frontman of Los Angeles psych legends The Entrance Band, Blakeslee has spent the past two years immersed in making four track recordings of wordless compositions and improvisations, (as heard on 2021’s “Double Vision”) and has just released a vast library of this impressionistic work, a double-cassette box entitled “EXTRAVISION” ~ via his new imprint ThirdeyeMemories.
Healing music, New Age music, ambient soundscapes, Satie on acid, music for psychedelic therapy, extraterrestrial film scores… call it what you will; Blakeslee considers it “channeled material” sent through him from other, parallel dimensions.
