From director Zoë Dehmer, the music video “Bos Taurus,” from Celestogramme’s newest album, Wish Vehicles, explores the underlying goal of all ritual — transformation. Drawing upon common iconographic elements of ancient Minoan religion, “Bos Taurus” explores the multisensory ways we both reconstruct the past and imagine and amplify it in novel ways. The transformative act in this video, based on rituals of the Minoan civilization in 1500 BC, presents a symbolic "taming" of natural forces. We hope to illuminate some of the ways these elements — the snake, double axe, and horns of consecration — could have been employed in personal contexts. The divinity is approached through wild animals, which simultaneously fill one with both desire and fear.
