The Hermetic Library at has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition. This is an anthology album of tracks by artists inspired by or who incorporate ritual and magick in their work. Each anthology album helps promote artists to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. These albums also further raise awareness about the connection between magick, music, and ritual.

Beginning in 2011, I started the 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. These are the profiles of participants in the anthology project for work inspired by or that incorporates ritual and magick.

As a project of the library, originally I created a group at Soundcloud (unfortunately a feature they removed), then moved the Hermetic Library audio pool to the BBS, for tracks and artists inspired by or manifesting the Western Esoteric Tradition. With this pool I’ve been working to raise awareness that music and performance can be a form of ritual and magick. This has been a space for artists to share their music and other audio, as well as connecting artists who feel drawn to these topics and ideas, or, especially, incorporate and manifest ritual and magick in their works with other artists and a larger audience.

Please join the Hermetic Library in promoting these albums and the artists who have contributed their work to the benefit anthology project.
