The Hour of Enoch is Performance Art Poetry Music Theatre. Our style is theatrical and spontaneous. Many of these pieces are “one takes”. Each piece is different. Some are Spoken Word/ Dub-Poetry others are more traditional. Our music draws from a wide range of genres, shaped with ConductedImprovisation (using hand gestures for example I help guide the music) Our song writing approach is born out of “the jam”.
The Hour of Enoch utilizes an array of beats & soundscapes, with a touch of psychedelic rock and poetic “talk-sing”. All strung together with storytelling that borders at times, as a public confession. Some pieces were literally made in the back of a van on a winters night. (Wait! That sounds off…)
You will also find live footage here back in March 2020 at The Horseshoe Tavern. It was our one and only live show thus far! We recorded a few demos at Kensington Sound featuring VEZI on guitar and bass, those are littered throughout the site.
I hope you find these alternative “rock” & experimental pieces worthy of your time as you lend your open mind…” – Tim Doucette
BAD TRIP (seen below) is a new project, a dub-poetry storytelling “audiobook” based on an unpublished book I wrote called:HERO STREET. It’s an autobiographical YA novel that hovers around my “prodigal son” teen years leading up to my eventual meeting of my beloved wife. The story explores the dark maze of a mental disorder widely coined- delusions of grandeur or messiah complex. Being raised by a radical pastor, having our home torn by organized religion and yet to come full circle with both my Dad and God in my unique way, is all explored in the book. The first release of these 12 chapters is BAD TRIP and NOMAD.
Furthermore, it must be said that the video below, entitled Delusions of Grandeur is in many ways a reflection of what is illustrated in HERO STREET. (Warning: It’s not for the faint of heart.)
THE BOOK OF ENOCH SECTION I. CHAP. 1.—The words of the blessing of Enoch where-with he blessed the chosen and just, who will exist on the day of tribulation when all the wicked and impious shall be removed. 2. And then answered and spoke Enoch, a just man, whose eyes were opened by God so that he saw a holy vision in the heavens, which the angels showed to me, and from them I heard everything, and I knew what I saw, but not for this generation, but for the far-off generations which are to come.
