This year marks the 20th anniversary of Hermetic Library’s birth on December 3, 1996!

Our cover includes the collage “Dark Night of the Soul” by Eugenia Loli for this deadly current year in the Thelemic Calendar, Anno V:ii (2016 e.v.), which represents the docosade of Atu V, the Hierophant and the year of the Atu II, High Priestess.

Please join the Hermetic Library in promoting these artists who have contributed their work to this benefit anthology album project. Please also spread the word about these anthology albums to people you think may be interested in the work of artists who combine magick, music and ritual.

The best way to add this anthology, as well as previous releases and future Hermetic Library albums, to your personal music collection is through the Patron campaign at Patreon. Patrons receive a gratis download code for a previous anthology release of their choice each year in addition to all the other patronage rewards they may receive. Further, active Patrons also receive an additional gratis download code for every new release as they become available. Patrons in 2016 as of this release will have had the opportunity to receive at least two full anthology albums from the collection, and more in the future, as well as helping to support the Anthology Project and the work of the library.

The Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition, Hermeticism, and Aleister Crowley’s Thelema. I started the benefit anthology project to help promote newer works in the Western Esoteric Tradition to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. The anthology project also further raises awareness about the corpus and culture of magick and ritual.

I encourage you to check out the Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com, if you aren’t already familiar with it, as that’s the reason this project exists and may also offer inspiration to you. The site was started in 1996 and has ever since consistently been an extremely popular resource for students and researchers interested in the Western Esoteric Tradition.

Sumeria

 

Sumeria
(Khan Kurra)

Sumeria is an electronically composed piece conveying a state of trance. It was created slowly during a series of meditative sessions; it marks the birth of the Khan Kurra project, as its synthesis, sonic qualities and creation ritual seemed to the composer to establish a pathway to vast new arcane and deeply emotional musical realms. Khan Kurra embarked here and continues on this journey.

Khan Kurra is an electronic music producer based in the swampy hinterlands of Florida. Using an amalgamation of modern sonics, organic textures and sounds culled from forgotten sources, Khan Kurra’s sound suggests something ancient, somehow conjured through a ritualized use of contemporary technology.

This Spring 2012 issue from the Hermetic Library Anthology Project is being released in mid-June. There’s 10 tracks on this anthology album from a number of new and returning artists. This is a playlist that makes me want to dance, makes me want to laugh, makes me want more. It’s got an itch that wants to be scratched, and that’s what Spring is all about. This release starts out with a strong rock beat with a glitchy guitar riff then moves to a moody melody with attitude. From there, an impromptu rap collaboration that leads to a strong electronica beat. A distorted electronica beat accelerates into an extended set of different raw glitched audio energy from several artists. The penultimate track is a fantastically awkward, lyrical and poetic piece that pretty much is exactly everything about how Spring feels to me, and then ultimately full circle to a final catchy and glitchy guitar riff that I think strongly and authoritatively announces an abrupt crossing of the sun into the coming Summer.

There’s a lot of itchy glitchy sounds to this playlist that seem to me just perfect for the feeling of the warm spring sun. You also know this feeling of everything stretching Winter-sore muscles and just aching to start running or climbing through the sudden sunshine. The cover image for this anthology builds on the sequential narrative, the progression from the previous anthology visuals and is meant to evoke the same Spring-like tension developing, an explosive potential just barely managing to hold itself in.
