Summary for the week ending Jul 15, 2018

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending July 15, 2018.

I’ve gotten Postal Exchange and Publication Subscription mailings out on Friday, and some Patrons have let me know they’ve already gotten theirs! I’ve also already started working on the next.

Don’t forget that I announced the call for submissions to Hermetic Library’s anthology album for 2018, Magick, Music and Ritual 14! The first submission has arrived, so it has begun!

Still looking for help and others to join me in a working community around the library, of course.

Lots of new pages and work on old pages on the site, which is pretty much every week, really. You can always check the front page of the site which shows the most recent changes and new pages, or check out the Recent Changes special page for a full list.

Want to join me on this blog and create new art or writing for Hermetic Library? Pitch your Idea.

Help get some conversations started over on the BBS and Chat.

Be sure to check out the actual Hermetic Library, and drop a buck in the tip jar or become a Patron.

Consider also checking out what I’m up to on my personal blog and at Odd Order.

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending July 8, 2018.

I’ve received a package from Fiddler’s Green with things I’ll be sending out to Patrons with Postal Exchange and Publication Subscription perks. I should get those out this week, if I get them all sorted!

Don’t forget that I announced the call for submissions to Hermetic Library’s anthology album for 2018, Magick, Music and Ritual 14!

For some reason, I appear to have started doing some Iconomancy and Pilgrimage to Far-Distant Countries activity again, at least for now.

Summary for the month of June 2018

Here’s a summary of activity for the month of June, 2018, and a few days on either side.

Huzzah! Time to come back from my June hiatus whilst I moved across country, and here’s what’s gone on since I last posted a summary.

I made it. I survived the move. I’m in the new place. However, I’m still not unpacked and I’m still getting back into the swing of things as all the dust has started to settle.

First off, just as I was going on hiatus, I announced the call for submissions to Hermetic Library’s anthology album for 2018, Magick, Music and Ritual 14!

Next up, I’ve got the next Postal Exchange and Publication Subscription perks lined up for ongoing Patrons of the library over on Patreon. I’ll be getting those in the mail in the next week or so! Also, I’ve got others after that in the works, and should start to have those each ready shortly thereafter, getting into the groove of doing them regularly like I’ve been meaning to do.

And, I’ve gotten permission to mirror J S Kupperman’s Journal of the Western Mystery Tradition.

I’ll be getting those up on the site as I am able, but the first issue is ready, so check it out: No. 0. (Vernal Equinox 2001) Introduction to the Western Mystery Tradition.

Okay, that’s a whole lot of stuff that happened whilst I was away on hiatus, huh?! I’m sure I’ve forgotten some other stuff that’s happened. But, I should be back to doing weekly activity summaries now!

Hermetic Library album call for 2018 submissions

Today I am announcing the 2018 call for submissions for Magick, Music and Ritual 14, 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 14 will be the 2018 release from the Anthology Project. The deadline for submissions to the 2018 anthology album is September 30th, 2018. Be sure to stay tuned to the blog and the pages for the Hermetic Library anthology project for reminders and updates along the way.

Hermetic Library Anthology 2018 Magick Music Ritual Call for Submissions

 

Deadline for submissions is September 30th, 2018. Release is planned around the anniversary of the Hermetic Library’s birth on Dec 3rd, 1996.

Be sure to read through the terms and conditions for artist submissions to an anthology album (which includes some new and more specific information about acceptable file formats), and after that if you have any questions, comments or wish to contribute to this project; contact the librarian.

Please consider joining Hermetic Library in promoting your work by contributing to this benefit anthology album project. All proceeds from album sales will support the library to help cover hosting costs, materials acquisitions, and other expenses.

 

Check out all the previously released anthology albums, help spread the word about the Hermetic Library anthology project, and let those you think may be interested know about this new opportunity to participate.

 

Cover Artwork and Design

If you would like to make a proposal for the artwork and design of this anthology, please get in touch! Take a gander at all the other covers and consider joining the illustrious artists who have participated with their work on those anthologies.

Subscriber-Only EP

This year I’d like to create a subscriber-only EP as a special additional perk for those people who have subscribed to Hermetic Library on Bandcamp. This will be a few tracks on an exclusive release just for subscribers that will be released in addition to the 2018 anthology.

Bonus Download Submissions

If you are creating something else, and would like to be included in the anthology download as a bonus, let me know. I’m open to bonus artwork, essay, articles and … well, anything that can be included in a digital download!

Odd Order anthology

Please also consider the Odd Order anthology, currently in its 3rd year, which is also being announced today with the same deadline. Odd Order Albums are annual compilations of tracks by artists inspired by or who incorporate geekery and nerdy mishegoss in their work, an anthology album of tracks by artists inspired by technology and geek culture. These benefit anthology albums help Rigaroga and Odd Order promote artists to the audience of the not only Odd Order, but also Hermetic Library and beyond.

Become a Patron

One of the best ways to add anthology releases and this upcoming Hermetic Library album to your personal music collection is through the Patron campaign at Patreon. Patrons will each be offered a gratis download code for each new release while they are active in addition to all the other patronage rewards they may receive, and that ends up being the most cost effective way to get these albums. Consider becoming a Patron today!

Summary for the week ending May 27, 2018

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending May 27th, 2018.

This will be my last weekly summary before going on hiatus at the beginning of June. I’m moving across the country, traveling almost literally a reverse Oregon trail with everything I own. Hopefully, I don’t die of whatever the reverse of dysentery is!

The Reverse Oregon Trail

The trip will take about a week, and then I’ll be getting set up there. I’m not sure how long the whole thing will take, or when I’ll be back online. But, we’ll see! I’ll resume regular updates when I am able.

But, whilst I’m traveling and getting settled, there will still be activity. I’ve got a bunch of book reviews and things scheduled for the blog, and so forth. Also, I’ll be announcing the call for submissions to Magick, Music and Ritual 14, the Hermetic Library Anthology Album for 2018, on June 1st!

Summary for the week ending May 6, 2018

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending May 6th, 2018.

This month I’m getting ready for a big move across country. So, I’m quite distracted by this looming event, and it’s my project all month long to get everything left to get ready ready. I’ll still be working on the library projects, of course, but I’m also getting ready for some time that I won’t be able to be online.

In the beginning of June, I’ll be disconnected and traveling; then, there will be a period when I have to wait for Internet to be installed again. I’m not entirely sure how long all that will take, so I’m planning on having a bunch of posts queued up on the blog and social media scheduled through June to post. I’ll hope it will be quick, but there’s no way to know yet. I’m looking forward to getting everything set up so I will be able to return to working on the site again!

I’ve don’t think I’ve mentioned this before but I’m essentially doing a reverse Oregon trail for this one. It’s a long trip, and I’m moving to a region where I’ve never lived. It’s daunting, but I have hope it will work out for the best! I hope the cats and I make it safely there and can hardly wait to get settled in the other side.

Summary for the two weeks ending Apr 29, 2018

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending April 29th, 2018.

Accidentally skipped posting a summary for last week. Also, getting Bob Black‘s material onto the site is taking way longer than I thought. It’s pretty amazing how well footnoted the first piece I started working on is, but, wow, it takes time to format those and link books and resources mentioned in them!
