“‘In the 1950s, Friedrich Jürgensen, a painter, archaeologist, and former opera singer living in Sweden, found traces of extra voices on tapes with which he was trying to record birdsongs. Over the years, Jürgensen made thousands of recordings of the voices of the dead…’*

These voices often came through to him via a radio tuned to 1485 Khz.

Sounds assembled on chilly drives through north Georgia with the radio tuned to 1485 khz in January 2014, Processed & Fixed in the heart of the woods during the heat of warm summer nights in July, 2014.

File 72314 (Variations)
by Hermetic Library anthology artist David B Metcalfe‘s The Message may be of interest.

“Variations on a theme, open landscapes of sound evoking the wandering spirits of the Cold War. A dossier of desolate dreams returning home and the subtle weight of unfinished assignments. Pathways for uneasy spirits to find peace.

– File 72314 –

for James J. Angleton (December 9, 1917 – May 12, 1987)

I, in this land of Ghosts, unseen.
But what is mine?
A spectre of memory, layers of wire, a Lie.
A memory bathed
in the deepest hues of fire.
But what is mine?
A love of all the mirrors,
against which they were pressed.

Sounds assembled 2010-2014, Processed & Fixed as the sun sank below the horizon on July 23rd, 2014.”

Ferdinando Buscema: magic, wonder, and Boing Boing: Ingenuity

Ferdinando Buscema: magic, wonder, and Boing Boing: Ingenuity” [HT Phil Legard, also] is a video including features of interest such as Erik Davis’ TechGnosis: Myth, Magic, and Mysticism in the Age of Information, David B Metcalfe’s Lullian wheel, Robert Anton Wilson, the art of memory, & more of relevant interest peppered throughout; culminated by an invocation of the accomplishment of the Great Work.

“Ferdinando Buscema is a magic experience designer whose work draws from mechanical engineering, sleight-of-hand, and his explorations of hermetic traditions. We couldn’t have asked for a more astonishing opening presentation at Boing Boing: Ingenuity, our theatrical experience that took place at a former Masonic Lodge in San Francisco on August 18. During his performance, video above, Buscema revealed the final secret of the Illuminati, and guessed my password, which I have since changed. We look forward to future collaborations with Ferdinando whose wizardry and warmth is an inspiration to Happy Mutants everywhere! Get illuminated.”
