2020 / Album

Released: Sun in Sagittarius, An Vvi

Magick, Music and Ritual 15, the anthology album for 2020 from the Anthology Project, is being released for the anniversary of the December 3, 1996 birthday of the Hermetic Library, with a playlist of 8 tracks by 7 artists, new and returning voices, for this Hermetic Library Anthology Album.

Our cover includes The Hanged Man, from the Dream Logic Tarot project, a collaboration by Jay Gidwitz and Anthony Teth for this current year in the Thelemic Calendar, An V:vi (2020 e.v.), which represents the docosade of Atu V, the Hierophant and the year of Atu VI, The Lovers. However, the image itself, as described in the artists' statements, is Atu XII, The Hanged Man, and was chosen because of our current lives in these plague years. We also have an alternative cover, included with the album download, that features Alchemy Mask by Jay Gidwitz.

As a bonus download, included with this issue, is the video Supernatural by Vivian Giourousis, with music by Kristeen Young, performed by Waterworks.
