The Unspeakable Plan

 

The Unspeakable Plan
(Furtkamp)

 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God. And in those sounds, the proto-sounds that came out of the void, the first form from formlessness, there is beauty.

Music for me has always been a spiritual pursuit — before I ever picked up an instrument, I found the ever-living spirit of the void in a fountain pen. And as I wrote, and read the works of Crowley and Spare and whatever a young man could scrounge before the Internet was young, words began to fail at times to convey the spirit of the Voice in the Void.

It wasn’t about verse-chorus-verse or format or key or even a definite note — if the Voice wanted to speak in those terms, it would just use words. But there were things I found, things I woke up with dancing in between my ears, that would not stop until I committed them to tape, that led to years of work with “automatic music”, the equivalent of automatic writing or drawing but with sound.

Sometimes it’s harsh, sometimes it’s beautiful. Sometimes the Angel sings. And sometimes it’s smaller than the moment and bigger than me. Hook up the recorder, plug in an instrument, hit record, bell, book, and candle, and it’s there.

The best things that come from my hands and my lips and my eyes aren’t mine. I don’t dare claim them as anything but the literal product of the Work. Even as my body has failed me and blessed formlessness is near, the Voice and the music and the echo is there.

These days I am a magician and musician and dreamer, mystic and idiot, effectively locked away from the world by the curse of failed flesh, but in the Voice and the sound and the music, I am free.

I have played absolutely free for twenty years — I have only broken this rule once, just to break it. I do not play covers or set songs or even my own material twice. It is a thing of the moment, living, breathing, dying, and remaining as a record of that thing, that intent. It is a sigil of the pain, the joy of existence, the sound of the moment.

It is generally recorded live or as live as it can be given that there are times when to satisfy the piece and the moment I cannot clone myself. Overdubs are limited to complete passes and what I call “pseudo-live” in that it’s “use what’s committed to record” or “scrap the whole thing” to prevent losing the moment in the pursuit of perfection.

If at all possible, I record live in one pass, 24 tracks available at a time to allow me to focus on performance rather than mixing (and to use totally wet processing where needed live, not in post production).

Shiny Cars

 

Shiny Cars
(Stibrany)

A kind of tribute to those electronica artists I grew up with back in the 90’s. A mix of Aphex Twin, Alec Empire and old Dutch hardcore. Flashy cars or at least very loud ones, driving through the old Dutch benighted streets, blaring their noise for all to hear.

 

Raised for half of his life in The Netherlands and Germany , Chris also spent much time studying and working in Japan and Korea. After many various jobs and a short time in the Army, he currently resides with his wife in Colorado. Besides magick and meditation with a focus on Thelema, his hobbies are reading (fiction (horror, sci fi, classic lit), history, metaphysics/occult) playing the drums, and hiking and swimming.

We Are Anonymous

 

We Are Anonymous
(relayer)

“We Are Anonymous” uses the sounds of the internet & telecommunication equipment with a driving bass for maximum ear massage. Down in the layers, math will help you :D

 

relayer has been making cut-up/sample pieces since he was 9 years old, when he ran around with his dad’s portable reel-to-reel tape recorder recording the wind, trees creaking, car engines, birds, rivers and many other sound sources, then spending huge amounts of time with a splicer making what is now called “ambient” pieces.

He was instrumental in the release of the underground classics “Merlin’s Muse #3” and “Listen!” the bootleg scatalogical Terrance and Phillip EP.

House Spider

 

House Spider
(Ace of Space/Paul Le Hat)

A previously unreleased track

 

Discontent is unavailable …

One man wave of cinematic electronica from Northumbria. Has so far produced five full length albums.

Whatever it means to Ace of Space it means capturing the moment, just like taking a photograph or snapshot, in musical terms. These eclectic collections are a mixture of old school electronica and guitar instrumentals and atmospheric soundtrack work.

Attic

 

Attic
(Stibrany)

Those thoughts you thought you had removed. Those memories you thought were long gone. But like a bad penny, the sickness and dust in your old mind come crawling back. The decay creeps to the forefront of your ego and you realise you can never truly exorcise the events that meant so much to your development.

Call for submissions to Odd Order album BIT NIBBLE BYTE for 2018

Today I am announcing the call for submissions for the third Odd Order anthology album, a new anthology album of tracks by artists inspired by technology and geek culture. These benefit anthology albums help Rigaroga and Odd Order promote artists to the audience of the not only the Odd Order, but also the Hermetic Library and beyond. And, they are a mass of awesome fun.

Theme for 2018 is BIT NIBBLE BYTE

The deadline for submissions to the 2018 anthology album is September 30th, 2018. Be sure to stay tuned to the blog and the soon to be added pages for the Odd Order anthology project for reminders and updates along the way.

 

Deadline for submissions is September 30th, 2018. Release is planned for a subsequent date to be determined before the end of 2018.

Be sure to read through the terms and conditions for artist submissions to an anthology album, included below (which includes specific information about acceptable file formats), and after that if you have any questions, comments or wish to contribute to this project; contact Rigaroga.

Please consider joining Rigaroga and Odd Order in promoting your work by contributing to this benefit anthology album project. All proceeds from album sales will support Rigaroga and Odd Order to help cover hosting costs, materials acquisitions, and other expenses.

 

Check out the first anthology albums, help spread the word about the Odd Order anthology project, and let those you think may be interested know about this new opportunity to participate.

 

Cover Artwork and Design

If you would like to make a proposal for the artwork and design of this anthology, please get in touch! Take a gander at all the other covers and consider joining the illustrious artists who have participated with their work on those anthologies.

Subscriber-Only EP

This year I’d like to create a subscriber-only EP as a special additional perk for those people who have subscribed to Rigaroga’s Odd Order on Bandcamp. This will be a few tracks on an exclusive release just for subscribers that will be released in addition to the 2018 anthology.

Bonus Download Submissions

If you are creating something else, and would like to be included in the anthology download as a bonus, let me know. I’m open to bonus artwork, game demos, download codes, essay, articles and … well, anything that can be included in a digital download!

Hermetic Library anthology

Please also consider the Hermetic Library anthology, Magick, Music and Ritual 14, which is also being announced today with the same deadline. Hermetic Library Albums are annual compilations of tracks by artists inspired by or who incorporate ritual and magick in their work. Inspirations include Hermeticism in a broad sense, the Western Esoteric Tradition, and Aleister Crowley’s Thelema.

Become a Patron

This last year has been a renaissance for me as an active streamer, with lots of Video Game Streaming, Tabletop Roleplaying Games, and IRL videos; including several new ongoing series. I’ve also become a Twitch Affiliate earlier this year. With my patronage campaign, I hope to create more ways I can connect with and develop community with a circle of fans with whom I can share a love of weird and wonderful technology and geekery. One thing I love to share is my excitement and joy around music through this anthology project.

One of the best ways to get add anthology releases to your personal music collection is through Rigaroga’s Patron campaign at Patreon. Patrons will each receive a gratis download code for the any release while they are active in addition to all the other patronage rewards they may receive, and that ends up being the most cost effective way to get these albums.

Our June Ah!

 

Our June Ah!
(Beaumont)

Our June Ah! is the story of Krishna revealing himself to Arjuna as God. It jumps octaves in several ways in the second half because the idea of “God(s)” in many ways is a being an octave above us, or even below us.

Abyss In Thee Serpent

 

Abyss In Thee Serpent
(Rance)

 

My name is Marc, I first encountered esoteric ideas when I was 15 years old in a book called The Black Arts by Richard Cavendish, It was not until I was 17 that I was introduced to the ideas in the Book of Thoth by Aleister Crowley (especially The Tarot and Animism) . I am now 45 and have related to various esoterica through music, art and personal practice during the intervening time. From Psychic TV and Coil to The shamen and Goa Trance via Throbbing gristle and everything in the Rave scene from the late eighties onwards. It seems impossible to fill this space with all my influences from the world of musick.

My process to create starts with words, I use keywords and expressions around an intention and cut up the ideas until they give birth to something that intuitively feels correct. I then paint the assemblage of language into a montage of symbolic images and colours. After this I charge the image through acoustic percussion and mantra (traditional or otherwise). Once I have obtained communication with my project and entered into a contract with it I move to my PC maintaining the state of trance and interaction in order to assemble a sonic tapestry of samples and sounds that reflect or are guided and informed to be representations of my communion with my work, I then edit and restructure. (Though not always) The sound has to be a reality of the contract/contact those are the terms and conditions.

I compose sound under three names Wolven Angel (Inspired by T.A.Z), M.A.R. and Children of Osiris, These personas/conditions/constructs serve different attitudes of purpose in order to guide certain aspects of my projects. Each set of conditions forms a set of temporary expressions recorded.
