Reminder about the call for winter 2012 submissions to the Hermetic Library Anthology Album and an idea about readings of drama, poetry and spoken word

If you haven’t already checked out “Hermetic Library Anthology Album call for winter 2012 submissions” you really should gander at this call for submissions to the next anthology album of tracks by artists inspired by or who incorporate ritual and magick in their work. These anthology albums help promote artists to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. These albums raise awareness about the connection between ritual, magick and music. Check out the previous release, help spread the word about the anthology albums and this new opportunity to participate to those you think may be interested, but first and foremost consider contributing to this next anthology!


Also, I’ve had in mind, and I’ve been reminded by posting more of Aleister Crowley’s poetry to the blog this week, that there is so much material, both poetic and dramatic out there, not just by Aleister Crowley, of course, and certainly people have their own work to offer as well, that perhaps people, individually or as a group, would be interested in doing dramatic and poetic readings either for the anthology or for another anthology. Perhaps, if there are submissions enough, an entire anthology album specific to drama, poetry and spoken word?

Do you have a work that you’d like to record as a solo or group reading of some piece, by yourself or by another author? Perhaps you’d like to share a reading of something from Aleister Crowley‘s Collected Works, or any of a number of other books, or perhaps one of the works of another author or playwright who is part of or inspired by the Western Esoteric Tradition. Especially for Aleister Crowley, there is so much in the corpus that no one hears performed, both poetry and plays, that there’s a wealth of material! Or, why not go back even further in time to the Papyri Graecae Magicae, The Sacred Texts, or something else entirely?


So, with that in mind, I am adding, to the call for winter 2012, a specific call for recordings of drama, poetry and spoken word related to the Western Esoteric Tradition. If enough people are interested, this could turn into a dedicated anthology album!
