The Hermetic Library audio pool is an experimental auditory scavenger hunt for sounds and music of a living Western Esoteric Tradition.

Music and performance can be a form of ritual and magick. Works and artists have long been inspired by the ideas of Western Esotericism and Mysticism. This group is to help create a space for sharing music and connecting with artists who feel drawn to these topics and ideas, or, especially, incorporate and manifest ritual and magick in their works.

The Wise

The Wise” is a track added by The OVRMN in the Hermetic Library audio pool.

1.Thee I invoke, the Bornless One.

3.Thee, that didst create the Night and the Day.
4.Thee, that didst create the darkness and the Light.
5.Thou art ASAR UN-NEFER (“Myself made Perfect”):
Whom no man hath seen at any time.
6.Thou art IA-BESZ (“the Truth in Matter”).
7.Thou art IA-APOPHRASZ (“the Truth in Motion”).
8.Thou hast distinguished between the Just and the Unjust.
9.Thou didst make the Female and the Male.
10.Thou didst produce the Seeds and the Fruit.
11.Thou didst form Men to love one another, and to hate one another.


Palisades” is a track added by The OVRMN in the Hermetic Library audio pool.

But what changes come upon the weary desert of our culture, so darkly described, when it is touched by the magic of Dionysus! A storm seizes everything decrepit, rotten, broken, stunted; shrouds it in a whirling red cloud of dust and carries it into the air like a vulture. In vain confusion we seek for all that has vanished; for what we see has risen as if from beneath he earth into the gold light, so full and green, so luxuriantly alive, immeasurable and filled with yearning. Tragedy sits in sublime rapture amidst this abundance of life, suffering and delight, listening to a far-off, melancholy song which tells of the Mothers of Being, whose names are Delusion, Will, Woe

Yes, my friends, join me in my faith in this Dionysiac life and the rebirth of tragedy. The age of Socratic man is past: crown yourselves with ivy, grasp the thyrsus and do not be amazed if tigers and panthers lie down fawning at your feet. Now dare to be tragic men, for you will be redeemed. You shall join the Dionysiac procession from India to Greece! Gird yourselves for a hard battle, but have faith in the miracles of your god!


$ameal” is a track added by The OVRMN in the Hermetic Library audio pool.

“And when she saw her desire, it changed into a form of a lion-faced serpent. And its eyes were like lightning fires which flash. She cast it away from her, outside that place, that no one of the immortal ones might see it, for she had created it in ignorance. And she surrounded it with a luminous cloud, and she placed a throne in the middle of the cloud that no one might see it except the holy Spirit who is called the mother of the living. And she called his name Yaltabaoth. […] And when the light had mixed with the darkness, it caused the darkness to shine. And when the darkness had mixed with the light, it darkened the light and it became neither light nor dark, but it became dim. […] Now the archon who is weak has three names. The first name is Yaltabaoth, the second is Saklas, and the third is Samael. And he is impious in his arrogance which is in him. For he said, ‘I am God and there is no other God beside me,’ for he is ignorant of his strength, the place from which he had come.”
– The Apocryphon of John

There are various kinds of sight. We can see through the context of music, emotion and insight. We can see with our physical eyes, but we can also see with our inner eyes. Or, as the mystics often called it; our Third Eye. This point of imagining sentience is our connection back to Sophia, back to the source. It is our window into the eternal force that animates us, and provides all we know of joy and love. Samael would have us forget Sophia; raped and slain by the patriarchy, a victim of the ultimate matricide. But Sophia is not dead. She is the sentient capacity for life.

Collage Pompeian Sur Le Régime De Vichy

Collage Pompeian Sur Le Régime De Vichy” is a track added by Manuel Montero in the Hermetic Library audio pool.

Le journal intime n’a pas pris à cause qu’il a dû être effacé au fur et à mesure. Ce qui est peut-être mieux, car un homme qui parle mal d’une femme est quelque chose de regrettable toujours.

L’orientalisme, au point de raisonner en bouddhiste, de Shopenhauer trouve son accomplissement discret chez Heidegger, et plus populaire chez les beatniks. Il s’agit de saisir que les orientaux tiennent les rennes du cosmos du fait qu’ils simulent croire en Dieu, étant pourtant des magiciens qui croient plutôt à une réalité mystérieuse.

Je viens d’accomplir un collage fumé pompéien sur le Régime de Vichy.

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,

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

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
