Music & Poetry of the Kesh

This cassette is included in Ursula Le Guin's novel Always Coming Home, which is about a valley people called the Kesh "who might be going to have lived a long, long time from now in Northern California." The cassette features music by Todd Barton and serves as a kind of anthropological primer on Kesh music and poetry. Very, very beautiful tape, well worth seeking out. Support Barton by buying here. One of these songs is on Spencer D.'s awesome new mix!


  1. Thanks for this. I'm assuming this is the same Todd Barton now doing some beautiful electronics on the Buchla Electric Music Box?

    1. yes, pretty sure it's the same. he has a website ( and a pretty active soundcloud.

    2. yup that's Todd alright!
      this tape is an all time favorite of mine, Todd's LP "Pieces" (which contains a few of the same tracks) is well worth tracking down as well!

    3. I haven't heard the LP, but I have another tape called EXCERPTS that is good. It's mostly compositions for Shakespeare, with a kind of Chinese flute synthesizer vibe. Very cool dark concrete piece for Macbeth.

  2. thank you ben! very very beautiful indeed :)
