Hermetic Library Newsletter - Issue #40 (all but finalized playlists for both MMR16 and TINAHLAA-3)

Hermetic Library Newsletter - Issue #40 (all but finalized playlists for both MMR16 and TINAHLAA-3)
By John Bell the Librarian • Issue #83 • View online
This week I pretty much worked only on both MMR16 and TINAHLAA-3. I noodled around until I got what I think are all but finalized playlists for them, including listening to them many times until I got entirely through them a couple times without making any changes. Worked on the covers and alternatives. I added drafts with everything to the library’s Bandcamp. Then I got to work on getting the covers and landing pages up on the actual library site. There’s so much that goes into getting these things ready!
Hey, when is the full first year of this newsletter? Oh, right, February. It’ll be the newsletter on Fri, Feb 4th, 2022. Okay, still a little way to go, but getting there!
And, as always, I worked on various other things on website, blog, and more … Enjoy!

MMR16 and TINAHLAA-3
The big news this week is that I have all but finalized the playlists for MMR16 and TINAHLAA-3!
Magic, Music and Ritual 16
Magic, Music and Ritual 16
Due to release for Sun in Sagittarius, An Vvii, Magick, Music and Ritual 16, the one and only album release for 2021 from the Anthology Project, the 10th year of anthologies, is being released for the 25th anniversary of the December 3, 1996 birthday of the Hermetic Library, with a playlist of 13 tracks by 11 artists, new and returning voices, for this Hermetic Library Anthology Album.

Due to release for November 25, 2021, This Is Not An Hermetic Library Anthology Album -3 is a special alternative release in 2021 just for Patrons and Subscribers of Hermetic Library. This playlist has 10 tracks by 9 artists, with both old and new voices to the project this year, which is the 10th year for anthologies, and the 25th year of Hermetic Library!
In a new twist, instead of being in no particular order, this is an actual intentional playlist. Furthermore, this playlist is intended to join with Magick, Music and Ritual 16 to form an even larger sequence. However just to make things strange, though this playlist releases prior to MMR16 in 2021, I recommend adding this album after this year’s canonical anthology in the overall order.

And, of course, there’s always MMR17 coming next year! So, if you’re an artist wanting to create the cover or a musician wanting to participate, stay tuned for the call for submissions in June 2022. (Although, if you want to get in touch before then, feel free!)
Also, as an aside, I was momentarily tempted to move the release date for MMR16 to 12/02/2021 since I just noticed that’s a Palindrome Day. (Normally I’d release it on the library’s actual birthday anniversary which is Dec 3rd.) But, it kinda takes the wind out of it when Bandcamp removes the leading 0 from the day in the date, tbh.
However, the regular release date 12/3/21 is also palindromic, of course! (which works great unless you’re from one of those strange places that puts the day before the month, like insane people might do.)
