about

One exclusive 25 minute piece of music from Blood of the Black Owl (Chet W. Scott).

Split CD with At the Head of the Woods available through Hand Made Birds & Glass Throat Recordings exclusively!

Since 2005, collaborators Chet W. Scott and James Woodhead have fashioned incredibly moving and innovative music as The Elemental Chrysalis. During this time, each has made his mark exploring a deeply personal journey as solo artist- Chet as Blood of the Black Owl, and James as At the Head of the Woods. With both projects creating incredible snapshots into their respective journeys, here, on a split crafted over a long period, and arriving at the cusp of new full length material from both, the presence of these long time pioneers could not be felt in a more rich and inspiring way. This is a limited release, featuring art by James Woodhead.

​Track I: AT THE HEAD OF THE WOODS
"HERE I STAND" 24:12

​Track II: BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL​
"VISIONS OF STRIX NEBULOSA" 25:19

I cannot stress enough, speaking for us both, how wonderful it is to finally find closure, seeing this chapter (the split offerings) come to a close. "Here I Stand" as well as "Visions of Strix Nebulosa" were all captured during the 2008 "A Banishing Ritual (Into white)" recording sessions. Sessions from a very intense & specific time period within both of our lives.

​As some of you may already know, James contributed a significant amount of performance & composition towards my 3rd full length offering "A Banishing Ritual (Into white)." During those sessions, James also helped to establish & strengthen the foundation for visions "I & III" for an offering that initially existed as three separate spirits. The first (formerly entitled "Hibernation") & third (formerly entitled "Minutiae") movements, or "Visions" as I prefer to call them. Spirits captured of what now is to be known as "Visions of Strix Nebulosa."



For those interested, here is the written word for "Visions of Strix Nebulosa." Once again, a gift from my old friend Daniel Ellis Harrod.

Thanks for your time and support,

-Chet W. Scott

​VISION I
Sleep now my friend...

Hibernate...

Dream your dreams...

Nestle (Hibernate),

deep in your soil.

Hibernation...

​Hibernate,

The snow will fall,

& encrust the ground.

Slopes,

hills,

plains covered.

Hibernate...

​It covers your trails...

In existence.

​Hibernate,

Let your slumber wander,

into the forgotten spaces...

​Hear silence,

& see without eyes.

​Hibernation...

Converse with the ones who left long ago...

​Hibernation...

Drink deeply...

Hibernate...

Drink deeply...

Ancestral waters.

​Become without age,

without flesh.

​Sleep,

Hibernate,

Sleep,

now my friend.

Hibernate until the final hours.

And then crawl,

into the light,

of your wisdom...



VISION II
Awaken...

Awaken...

Awaken...

Awaken.



VISION III
...Minutiae...Intolerable...minutiae...
The ever growing, unrelenting obsessions,

Obsessions.

That keep us scraping in the dark.

For those infinitesimal scraps of light.

To few and far between.

Or not at all

So I eat the Moon...

In an effort to digest sleep.
I invite IT!

To become my sweat...

Much less blind (now).

We can sink,

into bottomless oceans.

With the knowledge of stars and planets,
Beat one with the other.
Exhail the mist of time to animals.

With whom, I now swim and understand...

So I eat the Sun...

In an effort to digest thought.
I invite IT!

To become my eyes...

The universe is at a loss for words.
Totems...of parallel worlds and time.

Totems...

Are made as sentinels.

Totems...
Sculptures erected,

in the deepest of waters.

Totems...
The psychic web created...
Connected through speech of dreams...

Totems...

Totems...

Totems...

So I eat the moon...

Totems...

In an effort to digest sleep.
Invite IT...

Totems...

To become my skin.

Totems...
