Tzadik Records has announced a September of a new live album by by label founder, John Zorn – The Hermetic Organ Vol. 9 – Liber VII . This release is based on Liber Liberi vel Lapidis Lazuli, by the Master Therion. The posted description says:
Filled with wild sounds, bizarre juxtapositions, soulful melodies, and pulsating drones, this outrageous recital is one of Zorn’s very best. Inspired by Aleister Crowley’s Liber Liberi vel Lapidis Lazuli, and performed in a kind of trance state, this is music beyond thought, beyond beauty, beyond rationality. Recorded at St. John’s Cathedral in Knoxville, Tennessee during the 2022 Big Ears Festival, this is Zorn at his metaphysical zenith. Organ improvisations with Mystery at its very heart—you have never heard such sounds!
