Tonight, join Doug Skinner for the second of three concerts/lectures of occult and anomalous music including music attributed to aliens and fairies, music from occultists and secret societies, and an assortment of oddities.
Tonight’s iteration will feature music from alchemists and Rosicrucians; music from cults and secret societies. Selections include Athanasius Kircher’s music of the spheres, Lawsonomy hymns, and a puzzling tune by Paschal Beverly Randolph. Plus: the proper use of a monochord.
We hope you’ll join us for the entire series (See three-lecture ticket):
