about

This fourth issue from the anthology project is the penultimate album in the first full year. Magick, Music and Ritual 4 brings together over 3 hours of music which span 2 physical CDs plus a bonus track for digital downloads.

I've given somewhat poetical names to the several parts of this issue based on how each part of the overall playlist felt to me as I was putting it together. The first part of this issue seems to me carries the feeling of Summer during the day, that gives the gift of the Voice of the Sun. The second part seems like a darker journey reminiscent of the Summer at night, offering a Vision of the Moon. The bonus track is a binaural meditation that could be taken as that liminality in the very dark before the light returns when consciousness is altered, a dream time when is heard the Silence of the Stars. These three parts are each distinct, in that they have each a character of their own, but they also participate in a complete and contiguous playlist.

The artists who have participated on this anthology album span continents, languages, countries, and regions. There are a variety of ages, experience levels, styles here as well. Some artists have participated before on anthology albums or in the Hermetic Library sound pool, while some have not been heard before in either.

The ongoing visual theme of the anthology covers has past the bright promise of Spring, represented in the previous, and now smolders in the crazy-making heat of Summer. The Sun has conquered the sky and this brings the leisurely joy of wealth, the ecstatic exertion of work and also the weary climax of both.

Summer to me is a union of many opposites that transcends the abyss of differences. This issue of the anthology seems to be an exploration of that idea and feeling.

Please join the Hermetic Library in promoting these artists who have contributed their work to this benefit anthology album project. Please also spread the word about these anthology albums to people you think may be interested in the work of artists who combine magick, music and ritual.

Track Name: Johann Heyss - A voz do falcão
O mar negro me tragou em sono
a água escura invadia o bote
ou sou eu que me entorno
por querer decifrar o mote?

Melíflua a canção da voz do falcão
Onírica onda da luz da escuridão

Eu estou dentro do círculo de Adonai
o sol me esquenta a fronte
e nas costas a lua azulada vai
atrás de mim pelo horizonte

Melíflua a canção da voz do falcão
Onírica onda da luz da escuridão

Ele é caído como uma formiga da galáxia
a percorrer a terra em pernas de folha
tentando iluminar sua verde amnésia
que explode na areia da bolha

Melíflua a canção da voz do falcão
Onírica onda da luz da escuridão
Translation: The Voice of the Hawk

The black sea has dragged me in dream
the black water invaded the boat
or is it me who pour myself
for wanting to decipher the motto?

Mellifluous the song from the voice of the hawk
Oneiric wave from the light of darkness

I am inside the circle of Adonai
the sun warms my front
and on my back the blue moon goes
behind me through the horizon

Mellifluous the song from the voice of the hawk
Oneiric wave from the light of darkness

He is fallen as an ant from the galaxy
wandering the earth in legs of leaves
trying to illuminate its green amnesia
that explodes on the sand of the bubble

Mellifluous the song from the voice of the hawk
Oneiric wave from the light of darkness
