Aleister Crowley (/ˈæl.i.stə ˈkrli/; born Edward Alexander Crowley; 12 October 1875 – 1 December 1947) was an English occultistceremonial magician, poet, painter, novelist, and mountaineer. He founded the religion of Thelema, identifying himself as the prophet entrusted with guiding humanity into the Æon of Horus in the early 20th century. A prolific writer, he published widely over the course of his life. Crowley gained widespread notoriety during his lifetime, being a recreational drug experimenterbisexual and an individualist social critic. He was denounced in the popular press as “the wickedest man in the world” and a Satanist. Crowley has remained a highly influential figure over Western esotericism and the counter-culture, and continues to be considered a prophet in Thelema. Liber AL vel Legis (Latin pronunciation: [ˈliːber ˈaː ˈɛɫ weɫ ˈleːgis]) is the central sacred text of Thelema, allegedly written down from dictation mostly by Aleister Crowley, although his wife Rose Edith Crowley is also known to have written two phrases into the manuscript of the Book after its dictation. Crowley claimed it was dictated to him by a discarnate entity named Aiwass. However, the three chapters are largely written in the first person by the Thelemic deities NuitHadit, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit respectively, rather than by Aiwass/Aiwaz.



Cada concert de Discordian Comunity Ensemble és únic però aquest te un afegit especial. Pricto ha començat a treballar amb un nou sistema de notació on els caràcters literaris es tradueixen en caracters musicals. El llibre escollit per posar aquest nou sistema és el Llibre de la Llei de Crowley, així que es podría considerar una invocació a Aiwass de forma indirecta.

Com a gran coneixedora de la història de la música que és, Shak Benavides ens convida a una sessió especial on escoltarem música composada i interpretada per dones desde el segle XIX a la primera meitat del segle XX, música clàssica, folk de llocs remots, de avanguarda, jazz i música popular que ens farà viatjar en el temps
