Magick, Music and Ritual 12, the one and only album release for 2016 from the Anthology Project, is being released for the 20th anniversary of the December birthday of the Hermetic Library, with a giant playlist of 45 tracks by 41 artists, new and returning voices, for this Hermetic Library Anthology Album.

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.

Pyramidox vel Heb á Qual

Pyramidox vel Heb á Qual by Michael Idehall, who is also a Hermetic Library anthology artist, is a work that will be available for pre-order on Oct 21st, 2013 in a deluxe edition and due to release January 2014.

Michael Idehall Pyramidox from Aeon Sophia Press

“The vestments of old ages will wither along the road of pilgrimage, and newborn flesh will house the smokeless flame of gnosis. And thus a new book may have and old heart, and the songs of my mothers will be sung by foreign throats.—Oracle of Heb á Qual

The Pyramidox vel Heb á Qual constitutes a contemporary exploration of the grimoire known as The Treasure of the Old Man of the Pyramids, executed by means of sorcerous reification in order to present the mysteries that veil the heart of a book of power.

New incantations complement the twenty reworked talismans, and a transmission of sigils for entering into the tutelage of the Sentinel of this liber spiritum has been appended to the more traditional content.” [via]

Belzelbuth (Hermetic Library Mix)

 

Belzebuth (Hermetic Library Mix)
(Idehall)

Belzebuth was composed during a period of intense congress with the principal spirits of the Grand Grimoire. It was fashioned through states of possession, and the composition holds keys that can enable the listener to enter into similar states of consciousness.

Lord Belzebuth is called “The Veiled One”, and sonically this composition can be said to represent winds or waves moving across the veil from Sitra Ahra and into Malkuth/Lilith. Like rays of light shining through the fibbers of a gauze, the gnosis of Belzebuth enters the world.

Michael Idehall resides in Sweden and is a published author, artist and musician whose artworks have been exhibited in galleries and museums.

The artistic output of Michael Idehall always strives towards manifesting an opening to a world beyond the mundane. The creative process involves honing in on the nexuses between the flows of mind, matter and spirit. Nexuses which exist inside the human being, but also in the outer world, as conglomerations of energy and matter. In Michael’s creations, this convergence is revealed through the clash of ancient and modern, natural and artificial, and first and foremost the instilling of spirit into object.

Michael’s latest musical work has been described as reminiscent of “Psychic TV, Coil and similar, esoterically inclined artists. Not that his seancetronica really sound like any of those, but he — or what ever unseen force is imprinted into his machines — conjures up the same emotional states.”

  1. Kim Cascone – Alchemisphere One 34:02

 

The Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition. 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.

This Summer 2012 issue of from the anthology project is the fourth release but also the penultimate album in the first full cycle of seasons for the anthology project. Magick, Music and Ritual 4 brings together over 3 hours of music which span 2 physical CDs plus a bonus track for digital downloads.

I’ve given somewhat poetical names to the several parts of this issue based on how each part of the overall playlist felt to me as I was putting it together. The first part of this issue seems to me carries the feeling of Summer during the day, that gives the gift of the Voice of the Sun. The second part seems like a darker journey reminiscent of the Summer at night, offering a Vision of the Moon. The bonus track is a binaural meditation that could be taken as that liminality in the very dark before the light returns when consciousness is altered, a dream time when is heard the Silence of the Stars. These three parts are each distinct, in that they have each a character of their own, but they also participate in a complete and contiguous playlist.

The artists who have participated on this anthology album span continents, languages, countries, and regions. There are a variety of ages, experience levels, styles here as well. Some artists have participated before on anthology albums or in the Hermetic Library sound pool, while some have not been heard before in either.

The ongoing visual theme of the anthology covers has past the bright promise of Spring, represented in the previous, and now smolders in the crazy-making heat of Summer. The Sun has conquered the sky and this brings the leisurely joy of wealth, the ecstatic exertion of work and also the weary climax of both.

Summer to me is a union of many opposites that transcends the abyss of differences. This issue of the anthology seems to be an exploration of that idea and feeling.

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.

Roots

Roots” by Michael Idehall is a track added by Beläten in the Hermetic Library audio pool.

 

The Hermetic Library audio pool is a participatory place for sharing 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 other audio, and connecting with artists who feel drawn to these topics and ideas, or, especially, incorporate and manifest ritual and magick in their works.
