Magick, Music and Ritual 12, the one and only album release for 2016 from the Anthology Project, is being released for the 20th anniversary of the December birthday of the Hermetic Library, with a giant playlist of 45 tracks by 41 artists, new and returning voices, for this Hermetic Library Anthology Album.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Hermetic Library’s birth on December 3, 1996!

Our cover includes the collage “Dark Night of the Soul” by Eugenia Loli for this deadly current year in the Thelemic Calendar, Anno V:ii (2016 e.v.), which represents the docosade of Atu V, the Hierophant and the year of the Atu II, High Priestess.

Further, active Patrons also receive an additional gratis download code for every new release as they become available.

The Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition, Hermeticism, and Aleister Crowley’s Thelema. I started the benefit anthology project to help promote newer works in the Western Esoteric Tradition to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. The anthology project also further raises awareness about the corpus and culture of magick and ritual.

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.

Appalachia – no. 201

Appalachia – no. 201 by Hermetic Library anthology artist David B Metcalfe‘s The Message may be of interest.

“An abrasive series of explorations in the contemporary aetheral ambience surrounding the Appalachian landscape – the hidden effect of electric wires and industrial waste as it rips raw holes in the subtle body of one of the world’s oldest mountain chains.

Sounds assembled 2010-2014. Processed, Fixed and Finalized August, 2014.”

1485

1485 (nRadio Variations) by Hermetic Library anthology artist David B Metcalfe‘s The Message may be of interest.

“‘In the 1950s, Friedrich Jürgensen, a painter, archaeologist, and former opera singer living in Sweden, found traces of extra voices on tapes with which he was trying to record birdsongs. Over the years, Jürgensen made thousands of recordings of the voices of the dead…’*

These voices often came through to him via a radio tuned to 1485 Khz.

Sounds assembled on chilly drives through north Georgia with the radio tuned to 1485 khz in January 2014, Processed & Fixed in the heart of the woods during the heat of warm summer nights in July, 2014.

*1485 kHz, Carl Michael von Hausswolff assisted by MSC Harding (Cabinet Magazine Issue 1 Winter 2000/01)”

File 72314


File 72314 (Variations)
by Hermetic Library anthology artist David B Metcalfe‘s The Message may be of interest.

“Variations on a theme, open landscapes of sound evoking the wandering spirits of the Cold War. A dossier of desolate dreams returning home and the subtle weight of unfinished assignments. Pathways for uneasy spirits to find peace.

– File 72314 –

for James J. Angleton (December 9, 1917 – May 12, 1987)

I, in this land of Ghosts, unseen.
But what is mine?
A spectre of memory, layers of wire, a Lie.
A memory bathed
in the deepest hues of fire.
But what is mine?
A love of all the mirrors,
against which they were pressed.

Sounds assembled 2010-2014, Processed & Fixed as the sun sank below the horizon on July 23rd, 2014.”
