In this episode Todd Barton takes us on a musical and literary journey back to 1985 when he worked with Ursula K. Le Guin, famous for the EarthSea novels. Todd Barton created the musical score for Ursula’s fascinating novel, Always Coming Home, which focuses on a people that might have lived a long time ago in Northern California, and the book came with a cassette tape of music, songs and poems for The Kesh co-created by Ursula and Todd. The music for Always Coming was originally created using authentic acoustic instruments and Todd’s Roland Jupiter 8. Unfortunately he sold the Jupiter 8 many years ago, so has re-created the sounds from the track Music of the 8th House using the Buchla Music Easel.
