ID Music Meets Root Strata Inna Big Bend Style

Inter-Dimensional Music – the top-rated “New Age Talk” broadcast in the Big Bend since 2010! – returns to the airwaves tonight, Sunday March 1, 2015 from 9-11pm on Marfa Public Radio. Also always streaming live at marfapublicradio.org, and *rarely* archived at interdimensionalmusic.com.

We’ll be joined in studio tonight by itinerant Root Stratan Maxwell August Croy, who’s returned to Far West Texas for self-imposed exile/residency. We hope to hear more of the music he’s been working on, including a soon-coming collaboration with another friend of the show, cosmic harpist Mary Lattimore. We’ll also be talking high desert mind expansion strategies while cycling through psychedelic folk music (watch for the obligatory Dead jam), and maybe some downpressing folk metal so as to make sure our silver linings have more than a touch of grey.

We’ll also get into some music from the Marfa Myths festival, which arrives in these high desert grasslands on March 13 for a weekend of sound bathing, tape chanting and other irie activities featuring New Age-allies well known to ID Music listeners, such as Bitchin Bajas, Grouper and Jefre-Cantu Ledesma. Keep an eye on Marfa Public Radio and Ballroom Marfa for more coverage.



We’ll be back later this March with more news about Chambo’s next installation, a collection of photo-based works informed in part by the writings of Victorian proto-ecologist (and erotophobe?) John Ruskin. Fresh lichen prints are making their way to Marfa from Color Wheel Digital in Baltimore, destined for the expanding plant-mind meditation zone already in progress at Etherington Art.

Daniel Chamberlin writes:

There’s a good reason that Inter-Dimensional Music is the number one New Age radio broadcast in the Big Bend region of Far West Texas: Since we first started transmitting on Marfa Public Radio back in the spring of 2010, each song we’ve played has been selected with the goal of offering all the souls passing through the Chihuahuan Desert a soundtrack worthy of our luminescent high country vistas.

So whether you’re waiting in line at the Sierra Blanca Border Patrol checkpoint; watching the lights of Boquillas from the South Rim of the Chisos; channeling the spirit of curandera Jewel Babb deep in the Quitman Mountains; decoding starlight vibrations at the McDonald Observatory; vibing on the sky island rhythms of the Davis Mountains…
