VII Demons is a video from Wild Worm Web which is apparently a Vivid Tribe of Psychics cover of VII Demons by Hermetic Library anthology artist Whip Angels.

 

The Hermetic Library video pool is a scavenger hunt for video from a living Western Esoteric Tradition. If you would like to submit your work for consideration, head over to the Hermetic Library video pool or contact the librarian.

The Light of Sex

The Light of Sex” is a track added by Whip Angels in the Hermetic Library audio pool.

 

“This words spoken are derived from The Light of Sex: Initiation, Magic, and Sacrament by Maria de Naglowska which was recently translated from French into Englist by Donald Traxler. You can purchase and preview the book from the Inner Traditions website: http://store.innertraditions.com/isbn/978-1-59477-415-7

God vs. Satan. Art vs. Reason. She is your Salvation.”

 

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. If you would like to submit your work for consideration as part of the audio pool, head over to the Hermetic Library audio pool or contact the librarian.

Hermes
(Kraus/Widner)

Lyrics derived from the Emerald Tablet. Track created for Hermetic Library Anthology.

The Whip Angels exist to create the sonic extension of Sex Death Rebirth, an online art collection curated by Jenna Kraus. This collaboration strives to arouse and awaken, exploring both the esoteric and erotic. Words from ancient texts are adapted and set to music to further express Jenna’s desire to merge the spiritual and sexual. Musically, the group is comprised of a variety of artists and influences- the vocal poetic air reminiscent of Lou Reed, Jennifer Charles and Leonard Cohen and musically conjuring the sounds of My Bloody Valentine, Massive Attack and Nine Inch Nails. This project is ongoing.

The Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition. This is an anthology album of tracks by artists inspired by or who incorporate ritual and magick in their work. This anthology album will help promote artists to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. It will also further raise awareness about the connection between magick, music, and ritual.

Over the last year, as a project of the library, I have created a group at SoundCloud, the Hermetic Library audio pool, for tracks and artists inspired by or manifesting the Western Esoteric Tradition. With this group I’ve been working to raise awareness that music and performance can be a form of ritual and magick. This has been a space for artists to share their music and other audio, as well as connecting artists who feel drawn to these topics and ideas, or, especially, incorporate and manifest ritual and magick in their works with other artists and a larger audience.

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. You may also wish to check out other posts at the Hermetic Library blog and the Twitter and Facebook reflections to see how the library engages people in a living Western Esoteric Tradition.

Please join the Hermetic Library in promoting these artists who have contributed their work to this benefit anthology album project. All proceeds from album sales will support the library to help cover hosting costs and other expenses like materials acquisitions.

Additionally, this album is being released on the birthday of hermetic.com which was Dec 3, 1996. This release date marks the Hermetic Library’s 15th year in existence.

Last few hours to grab the pre-release bonus track along with The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magick, Music and Ritual 1

I’ve previously announced the pre-release availability of The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magick, Music and Ritual 1 and in just a few more hours … this will finally be released into the world!

While that’s incredibly exciting for me, and I’ve been waiting impatiently to finally share the entire anthology with everyone, I want to mention once again that only pre-orders of the anthology album include immediate download of “Inner Conversation” by Mahatma Dalí. This is a 28 minute incentive track available as part of this digital pre-release in 2 parts, in your choice of MP3 320, FLAC, or other formats. This extra material really works well when added together with the entire album, but will neither be included in downloads once the whole thing is released nor will it appear on physical CDs of the anthology. So, if you’re looking to grab that, it’s time to get on that before it is too late!

Either way, whether you do decide to preorder the anthology or pick it up when it releases, please join the Hermetic Library in thanking and promoting these artists who have contributed their work to this benefit anthology album project. Please also spread the word to people you think may be interested in the work of artists who combine magick, music and ritual.

As a reminder, you can read the original announcement at Pre-release of The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magick, Music and Ritual 1 or head directly over to the anthology itself at The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magick, Music and Ritual 1.

 

 

Two new physical CD packages added to the pre-release of The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magick, Music and Ritual 1

I recently announced the pre-release of The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magick, Music and Ritual 1, and have just added two new options for those looking to also have a physical CD of the anthology.

The first option is to pre-order a “Compact Disc + Digital Album” and the second is “Compact Disc + T-Shirt + Digital Album”. Both include a CD professionally mastered by SickTanicK, and professionally pressed, with original cover and insert artwork by me, John Griogair Bell, the librarian.

Ordering the compact disc includes the full digital album, of which the two part pre-release bonus track is immediately available. People who pre-order the anthology will be sent an email when the album releases so they can download the entire set.

The t-shirt that is available is one of the fitted American Apparel men’s t-shirt with the Hermetic Library logo, made of ultra-fine, combed ring-spun cotton, that gets softer with each washing. These shirts are cut small, so size up for a looser fit.
