An interview with Edgar Kerval
Author, artist, musician and practitioner from Colombia dedicated on deconstructing different magickal vortices through deep states of consciousness and gnosis.

Those of minimum intuitive or empathic strengths will immediately classify others by first impression of either being approachable, aggressive, docile, dangerous and so on based mainly on appearance. However, those that do exercise their inapt ability to “see” within will always sense the power within another.

Meet Edgar Kerval. Point-Blank – Connects to Qlipothic forces, exercise of invocations, conjurations, sexual libations, gnosis of automatic writings, paintings from vision, and music of Kaos, is not what many would assume of Edgar, but behind the veil when brought forth is a duality of profound knowledge and talent within Mr. Kerval.

Interview prelude with Edgar Kerval on his works

Hi Edgar, it’s more than pleasure to be able to interview someone embedded into the artes in so many directions from you as a practitioner, writer, artist AND musician! Much of your work can be referred as an arcane gnosis evoking Sacred and Primal knowledge, will you please elaborate on this further?
Greetings Mona and thanx for the interview. Mostly of my own explorations on the path of primal sorcery opened to me so deep channels of perception and inner illumination which are reflected though  my work in visuals,writings and  audial sigils. The process into arcane gnosis took me years of experiencing with spirits, under these explorations I found an hybrid type of spirits which were called the Red Gods. They offered me the needed psychic and primal knowledge to explore and to transform in this plane via music,art and writings. My work is an inner expression of my humble spiritual path chosen to carve, to mold and to experience until leaving this existential path and continue with the exploration in astral labyrinths in which inhabit the Red Gods.

I sense a lot of power within the work that you produce Edgar, and I know you’ve collaborated with quite a few influential occultist of different paths. This doesn’t surprise me as you draw Qliphotic magick and energies from African and Brazilian sources, could one assume that it’s about the undefined forces you lean towards or are there specific deities for instance you would like to make known to the public that you are dedicated to?
The Red Gods is the result of experiments in the fields of sorcery and transformative process under the influx of sacred plants, psychotropic  drugs and ritual sex. The Methods of learning, experienced and results with such spirits or gods, are in part due


to enough efforts in the fields of divers technics and the influx of suggestive manifestations which enter to my life as a transformative process in a mysterious but effective way. And my main interest is to offer you the possibility to explore more such sinister path of the Red Gods and its mysterious rituals, and encourage you to enter its astral temples and feel the vacuity of self, the connections with such marvelous spectral energies, always coming and waiting behind each mantra, behind each shadow and behind each candle burning and a drop of blood or drops of sexual libations falling into its sacred diagrams.

I know you’ve collaborated with quite a few influential occultist. Who then were some of your mentors that assisted in the beginning and even today?
Well, mostly of my work is highly inspired by the works of Kenneth Grant, Michael Bertiaux, Aleister Crowley, Austin Osman Spare, Andrew Chumbley…so I  just try to develop my own system of magick in which I can experiment with diverse elements. To work with spirits has been a potent way to transform myself into the vast womb of self-knowledge, always trying to obtain the more possible knowledge of my own alchemical transformation, which is and still will be developing, because this is an eternal process, a sinister process which lead us to the nucleus of the spectral red gods, with all its transcendental mysterious but effective rituals, which in a way transformed my life in a very positive way.

You tend to walk along many paths in sharing gnosis as you also reference a multiple realm of deities and numerous Primal Gods. What would you say to others in crossing these currents that the best form of sacrament in gaining passage would be?
One of the most important elements while someone is focused to explore the primal gods, is to experience, to be one with such primigenian forces, to become a god in this existential plane. This can be though dedication, and discipline, rising the red flame, expanding and moving in unlimited and transformative shapes always showing us its hidden knowledge and offer us its magickal nectars to penetrate its ineffable realms and learn and experience its sacred universe. This Mysterious universe plagued with diverse rituals and enchantments opens a new portal for sorcery for the entrance of such primal forces into  such deep regions of your consciousness.

When someone mentions Edgar Kerval, which of your works would you prefer to define you the most? Your music, or arte in which you practice and write within your books? I’m guessing none of the above can be separated!
Music is an important element in mostly of my Works, due its a powerful  gate to enter trance and inner vacuity, to explore the gnosis of the other side of eden via suggestive sounds, emanating as sigils to self transformation. Under such trance states and gnosis  in deep visions are manifested as paintings,automatic images, writings  comes in a obsessive way all the time. All those elements in  my art just represents a part of the few, humble knowledge I am gathering within years of working.
