Thomas Sheridan – Spectral Sounds: Hauntology and Music

February 22, 2020

Thomas Sheridan and Greg Moffitt discuss hauntology and music. In his book ‘Ghosts of My Life’, Mark Fisher defined hauntology as “music and culture that draws from and examines a sense of loss of a post war utopian progressive modernist future that was never quite reached.” Hauntological music has been described as music that evokes cultural memory and the aesthetics of the past, fixated on ideas of decaying memory and lost futures, and music that explores ideas related to temporal disjunction, retrofuturism, and the persistence of the past. The discussion includes electronic music, space rock, synth pop, vaporwave, and music for film and television.

Thomas Sheridan – The Secret Science of Sorcery – Part Two

May 12, 2018

Thomas Sheridan discusses his book ‘Sorcery – The Invocation of Strangeness’. In the modern world, we no longer have time for magic, dismissing it as mere mumbo-jumbo from less enlightened times. One might say, in fact, that the magic has gone out of our lives. Most of us, however, misunderstand just what magic is – a mechanism for manipulating the world around us, which through suppression and since the ascent of the scientific age, has mostly faded from memory. Yet this force lives on and indeed is fundamental to the very fabric of the Universe.

Thomas Sheridan – The Druid Code: Magic, Megaliths and Mythology Part Two

November 12, 2016

Thomas Sheridan discusses his book The Druid Code: Magic, Megaliths and Mythology. The Druid Code sets out to examine the wider concept of magic and mythology being utilised as an early form of social psychoanalysis by the druids, how magic theory developed from this, and how this evolution of ritual magic eventually made its way into folklore, witchcraft and Freemasonry. The Druid Code utilises mythology connected to sacred sites, developing a bidirectional conduit back through time, to reveal what took place in 2500BC – a shift in human consciousness that made humans what we are today. From Atlantis to alchemy, you will never see history in the same way again.
