Remember all ye that existence is pure joy; that all the sorrows are but as shadows; they pass & are done; but there is that which remains.
---Liber Al vel Legis
...this is (in part) a presentation of my translation of the last verse of Goethe's Faust, the centerpiece of a solstice ritual whose text I had written circa 1992. It was performed live at the Cow Palace for New Year's Eve 1995, as a chill-room collaboration between IAO Core and the Ambient Temple of Imagination, with this female faust, in tails, century old undertaker's top hat, and half white face, as vocalist and Enochian ritual unit. The soundtrack found its way onto an A.T.O.I. release; it is available through them for download, below.
