Hermetic Library album call for 2017 submissions

Today I am announcing the 2017 call for submissions for Magick, Music and Ritual 13, 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, music and magick. And, they are a mass of awesome fun.

Magick, Music and Ritual 13 will be the one and only album release for 2017 from the Anthology Project. The deadline for submissions to the 2017 anthology album is September 30th, 2017. Be sure to stay tuned to the blog and the pages for the Hermetic Library anthology project for reminders and updates along the way.

Call for Submissions for Magick Music and Ritual 13

 

Deadline for submissions is September 30th, 2017. Release is planned around the anniversary of the Hermetic Library’s birth on Dec 3rd, 1996.

Will You Take Me All The Way

 

Will You Take Me All The Way
(Washburn)

The Implicit Order is not involved in any wave, stream, genre or scene. I/O started in 1989 as a Mail Art project and by the early 1990’s it developed into a full time musical project incorporating many of the Industrial/Experimental ideas of the late 1970’s, 1980’s and beyond. The band always tried to inject a sense of the Occult, humor and an off-kilter view into the image and recordings. The Implicit Order was active in the Cassette Culture of the 1990’s up to 2001. In 2002 the band took a break from recording and resumed in 2008. Some labels of note that I/O has appeared on: Wholeness Recordings, AIN23, Phantasma Disques, Classwar Karaoke, Vuzh Music, SuRRism Phonoethics, Black Circle Records, Clinical Archives, EE Tapes, Cohort Records

Broken Fire

 

Broken Fire
(Ace of Space/Paul Le Hat)

This is a solemn dedication to a dear beloved sister who quietly passed away in 2016 after a long illness. Also to the people involved in her palliative care, her family and friends who helped her on her journey. The distance between us never stopped us talking to each other about what was happening to her, we made check lists, issued directions, recalled the happy and sad events in our lives. I learned new things and re-learned things I’d forgotten about. On my visits we packed books and art works to be given away, added to those check lists, made food from our youth, reminisced some more, I became the artist’s assistant and we walked on shorelines and footpaths of her favourite places without fuss or complications. These simple things were her signals of reassurance.

Discontent is unavailable …

One man wave of cinematic electronica from Northumbria. Has so far produced five full length albums.

Whatever it means to Ace of Space it means capturing the moment, just like taking a photograph or snapshot, in musical terms. These eclectic collections are a mixture of old school electronica and guitar instrumentals and atmospheric soundtrack work.

Around the Strophalos

 

Around the Strophalos
(Ortega)

Around the Strophalos is the opening track of my recent debut EP Pagan Anthology. Thematically it is inspired by a fantastic cross between blues history and the ancient Hecate’s worship. Some year ago, I fantasized if in that famous mythical episode in the history of blues, bluesman Robert Johnson hadn’t sold his soul to the devil at a crossroads but, instead, invoked Hecate, Greek goddess of the crossroads. With this fantasy in mind, I lit a candle in the darkness of my home studio and, on a drum loop, I began to improvise the melody that would become this track. Its title comes from a fragment of the Chaldean Oracles. My friend Leonardo Reyes has recorded some guitar parts.

Utopia Eleison is a project by Israel Ortega (Caracas, Venezuela) who started on the grounds of prog and classic rock to later embrace electronic, ambient and world music. Today he is making computer-based music inspired by both multiple musical genres daily frequents and his love for books and literature. With his moniker Synth Avesta, he is also producing a more electronic/pop-oriented music.

Better Way

 

Better Way
(Logan)

Written by Kim Logan
Produced + Engineered by Brett Orrison
Recorded at Century Recordings in Dripping Springs TX
Kim Logan (vocals, electric guitar)
Ricky Dover Jr. (electric guitar)
Gyasi Heus (electric guitar) Cody Reid (electric bass)
Amaia Agirre (keys)
Houston Mathews (drums)
Brendan Lazar (percussion)

Kim Logan arose from the swamps and beaches of Sarasota, Florida after a decade in the opera industry, to write songs and make records in Nashville.

With her education from the Berklee College of Music, and years of the kind of hands-on learning you can only get in honky-tonks and on highways, Kim flexes her artistic muscles in every medium of art possible. In addition to the release of her debut self-titled album, Kim has penned published poetry and essays, consulted on and served as muse for a fashion designers and vintage curators, and collaborated with everyone from filmmakers, to burlesque and hoop dancers, to portrait artists, in interdisciplinary displays of performance art.

The second oeuvre of Kim’s work will be released in late Summer 2016. The first two chapters are produced and developed by the formidable sonic wizards Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton), and Brett Orrison (The Black Angels). Kim continues to innovate, reinvent, and create from nothing. Kim is also an ensemble/comprimario singer with the Nashville Opera company, and can be seen in productions throughout their festival season.

A classic, craftsman’s songwriting sensibility, paired with sonic homage to each unique sub-genre in history which has influenced her, makes for Kim’s gap-bridging, line-blurring, time-traveling sound.
