From Technicolor Skull’s mySpace page: “Technicolor Skull is Kenneth Anger (pictured above) and Brian Butler’s magick ritual of light and sound in the context of a live performance. Along with Brian Butler on guitar and electronic instruments, Anger performs on the Theremin while his psychedelic Technicolor Skull images are projected.”
