Road to Aaru

Road to Aaru” is a track added by Oraton in the Hermetic Library audio pool.

Set, destroy and break me down,
Separate, divide my being,
Isis nurse the ha,
Align my eyes,
Father know me,

Son, journey under the world,
To meet and battle the serpent,
Rise in the east and become,
All and one

Follow your shadow under,
Twisted demons stand guard at the gates,
Mind passes through in danger,
Still the peril of falling again,

Ka meet with Ib and the jackal,
Ammit be still for order I seek,
As mother unites my skin,
For such unions may lift me from the night,

Son, journey under the world,
To meet and battle the serpent,
Rise in the east and become,
All and one,

Father, see that I walk towards you,
Know my intention for I’ll soon,
Revive your spirit and fly,
Reunite

Rise from Duat,
Come forth to Aaru,
Reborn,
The son and the father,
All and one now,
Forever

Son, journey under the world,
To meet and battle the serpent,
Rise in the east and become,
All and one,

Father, see us unite in the fields,
Now and forever we yield,
Reap the rewards of the son,
Born after death

Master and Margarita

Master and Margarita” is a RM Isaiah track added by The High Witness in the Hermetic Library audio pool.

Hope I can drink myself to sleep
Before the sun it gets to rising
I beg the Lord my soul to keep
Every time I close my eyes
Nobody I know is a wise man
I’m pawning my collection of friends
Ain’t no use in saying what we believe in
Cause nowadays the war never ends (2x)

Chorus
I’m your master you’re my margarita
You know I got the heart of a dog
I laugh at every other disaster
That man and god they send my way
Whatever man and god may send my way

The one thing you can always depend on
Trouble waits around the bend
The more defenseless that they can descend on
Is the less time that they have to spend
Somebody wake me up if I am still sleeping
Go on and call me terrible names
They’ll shear the sheep and use ‘em for kindling
Cause it’s hard to start a fire in the rain (2x)

Chorus

You ask me about my trip to the labyrinths
An I can’t think of nothing to say
Like you , I think They’re magically tragic
In their own Mephistophelian way (2x)

Chorus (2x)

The Magnificent Accord

 

The Magnificent Accord
(Dave Migman)

This song is one of a 20+ part sequence of tunes culled from notebooks. In 2012 I bought a one-way ticket to Greece and roamed the Cycladic islands and found myself in Turkey. Above the little town of Kas I came across an ancient temple, and would sit writing what came, inspired by the landscape and the ancient Temples I was visiting everyday.

After leaving Turkey I travelled by ferry to Crete from Rhodes (a nightmare 17 hours in a storm). From there I went to the tiny volcanic island of Santorini where I have friends. I rented a cave house for three months and began laying tunes down and writing.

The winter was harsh, cold and windswept, but my secluded quarters afforded me a haven from the elements. I would record in the echoing chambers and used what little instruments were available to me. I had a wee harmonica, a bowed piece of driftwood struck with elastic bands, a thumb piano and my MacBook (thus I was also able to utilize the virtual keyboards available in Garageband). Compositing was performed in both Garageband and Audacity.

With The Magnificent Accord I wanted to use my harmonies to build a sense of the wonder and power of that particular moment, watching the sunset as storm clouds drifted in from across the Aegean … rainbows and burgeoning moons!

Dave Migman is a prolific writer of poetry and dark fiction. There is a novel entitled The Wolf Stepped Out, a sort of urban ‘Inferno’, and there is also a spoken word album called ‘Sheol’, an artistic collaboration with Serbian musician Spleen Erebus. There are also many pomes and stories scattered over the vast, immeasurable space of the cyber realm.

Much of Dave’s recent work reflects his love for travel and his engagements with an animate, mythological reality. For twenty years he has earned a living by carving stones in Edinburgh, Scotland. He draws his inspiration from a vast reference base culled from various obscure sources over the past two decades. There are Celtic, Pictish, Viking, Neolithic and many more besides. In doing this he also explores ancient mythological threads that reoccur in various cultures. All this bears influence upon his art and writing.
