The Seven Heads of Gog Magog is the name given by tomb-dwelling autodidact ‘poly-myth-storian’ Emma Florence Bausor to the ‘musicians’ responsible for seven sound recordings that were delivered to her anonymously in 2014. Or rather The Seven Heads of Gog Magog are not conventional musicians at all, Bausor claims, but seven museum objects, objects from which the recordings have ’emanated’.
As Bausor explains on her blog dedicated to the recordings: “From 14th October to 4th November 2014, every Tuesday and Friday, I uploaded seven recorded songs. I have named these recordings The Seven Oracles of Gog Magog. I also attempted to elucidate each of these songs in an accompanying blog post. I call these tracks ‘oracles’ because they are premonitory or prophetic emanations that seem to have issued from – or through – seven objects, or ‘Seven Heads’, from museums in Cambridge. I call these objects The Seven Heads of Gog Magog.” We firmly recommend that you read Bausor’s brilliantly polymathic blog posts about the recordings. These posts, in her words, seek to “speculate on the nature of [each recording’s] enigma”. The tracks were released together on CD by Owd Scrat in 2018.
