Canyon Meadows

Kyle Bobby Dunn - Canyon Meadows from joe morgan on Vimeo.

Kyle Bobby Dunn is a Brooklyn based composer (and a buddy of mine) who churns out viscous drone pieces that are drenched with restrained beauty. This video is consisted of clips sourced from videos he made in Canada during his childhood.

He has a new record out called "Ways of Meaning" that I would recommend to anyone.

Thomas Pynchon

Welcome to what I'm calling Traces From Nowhere 

I leave the first post with a segment from Everett Ruess's poem, "Pledge to the Wind". A young wandering poet and artist, He vanished into the canyons of Utah and allegedly, "left behind a final signature carved into a rock: "Nemo" or "no one"1

   Onward from vast uncharted spaces,
   Forward through timeless voids,
   Into all of us surges and races
   The measureless might of the wind. [...]
