Procession of the Rice Bowls

Procession of the Rice Bowls” is a track added by Child Mercury in the Hermetic Library audio pool.


“Inspired by the sound of my rice cooker. One night I noticed that the metal bowl of my rice cooker made a pleasingly sonorous sound when hit.
It made me think of a twilight march of the villagers towards towards a temple; Foxfire flickering around them.
I decided to take advantage of this and create a song based around this sound. Did I mention how much I love my rice cooker?
We shall not reach the rice field by nightfall.
Let’s all rest by the shrine.”


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.
