Emerald Tablet Kickstarter

We are two days into a kickstarter to create a professional recording of our original musical setting of The Emerald Tablet.

Help us reach our goal and make this record happen! We have to meet the goal this month, and it’s all-or-nothing. There are many perks available including the recording itself, an Emerald Tablet poster, tickets to the record release concert and a Cult of Orpheus T-shirt.

Thank you for the support!
