The Sacrosanct Oracle//Composition Deck is a collection of resource-based oracle messages that double as indeterminate graphic scores. Composed to uphold folx of marginalized gender identities, the cards offer space to assess, access, cultivate, claim, and share resources to dismantle the binary, gender-based cultural conditioning of patriarchal power structures as we forge our own paths forward.
Created by toychestral electroacoustic composer-performer Alexa Dexa, Sacrosanct holds 50 hand-drawn and digitally colored oracle//composition cards measuring 3.5” x 5.75” and an altar card featuring a spell for synchronicity. An accompanying 108-page, hand-written and risograph-printed guidebook presents methods for resourcing yourself and musically reading the cards to invoke songspells (intentions that hold space for infinite possibility translated letter for letter into musical phrases that manifest transformation through the process of deep listening).
Accessing music as transformative self-care through the Sacrosanct Oracle//Composition Deck requires only a mechanism for generating sound and connection to experimentation and play. Formal musical training is not necessary.

Sacrosanct is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York state legislature, and administered by the Huntington Arts Council.
