OGRE & Dallas CampbellNOTLD” ★ Label: Lakeshore Records ★ Rel. 14 October 2016 ★

A new score by synth masters OGRE & Dallas Campbell for the classic horror film!

Night of the Living Dead is directed by George A. Romero. Criticized at the time for its explicit gore, the film has since garnered critical acclaim for its sharp social commentary and for launching the popular genre of zombie horror. It has been selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry as a film deemed “Culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant.”

Robin Ogden (OGRE) is a musician and composer based in The UK who has provided music for film, games, and more. Dallas Campbell (Dallas Campbell, Magic Happened) is a West Virginia based producer on the border with zombie capital Pittsburgh who boasts a massive collection of analog synthesizers.

Despite living 3594 miles apart, and having never met in person, they collaborate online by the wondrous power of Facebook chat. Night Of The Living Dead is the third installment of their transatlantic collaborations to see the light of day.

Julien Mier :: Shiny Silver Lining

Julien MierShiny Silver Lining” ★ Label: King Deluxe ★ Released 07 June 2016 ★

The main threads of Shiny Silver Lining are those things that come along the way that you didn’t envision in the first place. It’s a change of scenery, transitions, change of seasons, things that get lost, replacing the old veins by growing new arteries and paths, feeling lost in translation, feeling foreign in the familiarity. The color of transformation. It’s about finding positivity in things that get worn out and seeing the good things of dark brooding clouds and waves that are 100 feet high that keep on coming to crush you and all you can do is float.

King Deluxe presents music by Julien Mier “Sea of Decay” • Animation by Kamiel Rongen.

Cartomancer Program Notes

In ‘The Mystic Test Book’ (1893), 19th century American astrologer and mathematician Olney H. Richmond outlined a complex system for using a standard deck of playing cards for divinatory purposes. The deck is referred to as a book, which he claims to be the world’s oldest, dating back to a time before modern written language. He claimed the “science of the cards” originated in the ancient continent of Atlantis, where it is said four rivers flowed from one source, four kings ruled in one capitol, and which was thought to contain the site of the biblical Garden of Eden. Earlier, in 1889, Richmond had founded the Order of the Magi in Chicago to teach an astrologically based theological system. The Order was one of the many new astrological religions founded in 19th century America . Olney’s temple was originally located on the second floor of his home where he regularly taught to about 30 men and women. The temple is thought, by occult scholar Aidan Kelly, to have functioned as an “outer court” for a coven of witches.

Arline Richmond (born Pauline Goede, 1892), was the adopted daughter of Richmond, who later became is wife; Pauline changing her name to Arline after joining the Richmond family. She became quite active in the Order of the Magi and wrote or compiled several books about the surrealistic experiences of her foster father/husband during his life that led him to establish his religious Order. After his death in 1919, Arline assumed the role of Magi High Priestess.
