Best part of waking
up is Raga Bhairavi
in these headphones, dude

… haiku in the style of @revoltoftheapes.

Preparing for next week’s February edition of Inter-Dimensional Music on Marfa Public Radio, navigating raga headspace with the help of Tawfiq and Tanarang. Of all our recent discoveries, Raga Bhairavi is perhaps the most enchanting, and has now become part of our regular morning routine at the Indianapolis Zen Center. From Tanarang’s raag index

Any one who claims to know or appreciate music cannot be unaware of the queen of melodies i.e. Raag Bhairavi. The soft (Komal) notes and their smooth rendering with pleasing touches – Khatke, Jhatke and Murkiyan simply mesmerizes the audience. A pleasant sobering atmosphere full of love and piety is created and one feels so close to the Supreme. Its compositions include several Thumris, Bhajans, Ghazals, Songs etc. Since it is an ocean of immense possibilities the melodic combitions can include all the twelve notes with skill.

Inter-Dimensional Music News: October 2015

Chambo relaxes with friends in the Adirondacks

Inter-Dimensional Music returns to the airwaves of the Big Bend on Sunday, October 4, 2015 from 9-11pm (CT). As always, you can hear us the first Sunday of every month on air at Marfa Public Radio, broadcasting across the Trans-Pecos at KRTS 93.5 FM in Marfa, KRTP 91.7 FM in Alpine and KDKY 91.5 FM in Marathon. You can stream the show live at marfapublicradio.org, follow along @CosmicChambo, and find intermittent updates at interdimensionalmusic.com.

Subscribe to the ID Music newsletter and never miss a broadcast!

Tonight’s show is inspired in part by the Barred Owls of Owl Pond, and the Adirondacks camp where your host spent the early part of September in communion with his family of cousins, aunts, uncles, mosses, ferns, mushrooms, trout, ospreys, damned cormorants and the aforementioned birds. Listen for Barred Owl calls throughout the broadcast. ID Music will also feature some new field recordings from Pinto Canyon Road by People & Sounds podcaster Katherine Rae Mondo.

In the first hour, new music from Matthewdavid’s Mindflight and Sun An, some (allegedly) old music from Kon Teifi, and classic ‘80s New Age from David Casper and William Linton.

In the cosmic metal hour we’ve got some thoughts on loneliness, desolation and love from Marissa Nadler, Windhand and Chongyam Trungpa, along with fresh jams from Black Breath, Deafheaven and Vanum.


The Last Marriage of Space and Time, my show featuring linen-cotton canvases inspired in equal parts by J.G. Ballard’s The Crystal World, the tapestries of William Morris, and the back-patch art of the metal and punk communities, came down last week. Exhibition documentation is now online at Into the Green.

The 56” x 38” works are printed in an unlimited edition on linen-cotton canvas, and are available from Marfa Book Company for $200 plus shipping. Contact them here.


Wildflower Sigils and Mantras is still on view at the bookstore; these unframed, unlimited-edition prints are available for $100 and $150. Works are printed with archival inks on Hahnemühle Bamboo paper by our friends at Color Wheel Digital. Contact the good people at the store for ordering information.


There’s also a new show at the squat gallery (aka the South Plateau Adobe Ruin) including works in concrete and bone by Tyler Spurgin, and an installation of my lichen canvases. Contact either one of us to schedule a visit. The gallery is hosted in an abandoned building at the south end of Plateau street in Marfa. If you visit independently, please use an inside voice, don’t bother the wasps, and enter at your own risk.

In other news …

  • Listen to Tom Michael’s Desert Surf Films interview with Ballroom Executive Director Susan Sutton, Desert Surf filmmaker Ian Lewis and yours truly on Marfa Public Radio.

  • Katherine Rae Mondo’s “West Texas Talk” interview with me and other Far West Texas EMTs about the existential and tactical challenges of life as a medic can be streamed and downloaded from Marfa Public Radio, or as a People and Sounds podcast.

Dream well, friends,
