    Book details

Written in Blood by Lithuanian writer, journalist, music and mythology researcher Mindaugas Peleckis was really written in blood. This metaphor came true while listening to MK9 in Vilnius, 2014, when Michael Contreras let the blood go down his wrists and marked his manifesto with it. This made a big impression on Mindaugas Peleckis who was investigating music and philosophy at the time. At that moment, everything became clear: all the people who talked to him, all the music which was listened to, all the mythologies - everything comes from blood, or it's nothing at all. The main aim of the book is to show modern mythologies from different backgrounds, and highlight that we are all blood's creatures. The author chose to present his interviews and other material about people from around the world - including the post-Soviet bloc (Lithuania, Latvia, Russia, Ukraine, Poland), Europe (Ireland, Sami lands, Finland, UK, Austria, Sweden, Italy, Norway, Switzerland, Germany, Greece), the USA, and Asia (Malaysia). Not all people who talk here and give us their 'blood' are musicians: some are philosophers, writers, artists and other interesting people with a unique view of our world. A special introduction to Written in Blood is provided by Thomas Bey William Bailey, and the book also includes a special epilogue by world famous philosopher and photographer Alphonso Lingis. Mindaugas Peleckis (1975, Lithuania) has written and published more than a dozen books: first the encyclopedia of Lithuanian rock music (2011), a mythological study, a book on new religious movements, poetry, and novels. Educated as a professional journalist and philosopher, he especially tries to investigate modern music which he loves very much. Written in Blood is his first book in the English language. Interviews include: •: Patrick Leagas (Death in June, Mother Destruction, Six Comm) •: Steve Chandra Savale (Asian Dub Foundation) •: Peter Andersson (Raison d'ê:tre) •: Andrew Liles (Nurse With Wound, Current 93) •: Robert Taylor (Changes) •: Kirlian Camera (Italy) •: Martin Bladh (IRM) •: Sam Rosenthal (Black Tape For A Blue Girl) •: Helge S. Moune (Screaming Corpses, Maeror Tri, 1000Schoen) •: Michael Contreras aka MK9
