… or Hoor Paar Kraat* tend toward producing electronic loop-based music with a healthy dose of sampled speech.

They originally came to TheNovaLounge collective in the 90s and were quite prolific during 2001-2002. They then succumbed to their wanderlust and spent many years in North Africa, South America, and Asia returning recently with a stockpile of themes on which to expand, both musically and through literature.

We look forward to bringing you their output in due course.

* HPK took their name, with a certain amount of irony, from one half a composite Egyptian deity adopted by occult practitioner Aleister Crowley’s Temple of Thelema. The adopted deity was Heru-ra-ha, which was composed from aspects of both Ra-Hoor-Khuit and Hoor-par-kraat. Hoor Paar Kraat is often seen as the Lord of Silence (hence the irony), occasionally considered as Horus, the child, and commonly depicting as a child with a finger to his lips, a ‘Shh!’ gesture.

Hoor Paar Kraat is also connected to the receipt of the text of The Book of The Law (alternatively titled: Liber AL vel Legis, sub figura CCXX, as delivered by XCIII=418 to DCLXVI) – the central treatise of the Temple of Thelema – received by Crowley in Cairo in 1904 from the true author, Aiwass.
