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.
