Melting Clocks and the Hallways of Always: Time in Psychedelic Music
Abstract:In this essay, Russell Reising categorizes and analyzes the dominant ways in which psychedelic music, in various attempts to reproduce the aural sensations characteristic of psychedelic experience, registered the ideas of time and duration. Drawing on psychedelic music from various genres, psychedelic films, and various written accounts of psychedelic experience, Reising suggests the thematic, lyrical, and sonic richness of the psychedelic musical tradition.
