"Groundbreaking work" (New York Times) - Ben Ratliff, author of Every Song Ever
My writing explores the role of esoteric spirituality and intuitive discipline in the creative process of music, often with a focus on American history and various artistic figures therein. In 2021, Coolgrove Press published Buddhist Bubblegum: Esotericism in the Creative Process of Arthur Russell. My long-form essays have been published in print, via Abraxas Journal, The Open Space Magazine, and FOARM Magazine, and online, via Ear_Wave_Event and Desert Suprematism. I am currently editing the unreleased treatise on intuition, Intuition in the World-Making, by composer Arthur Farwell. And I am preparing the manuscript for The Illusioned Ear, my cultural history book, exploring the role of auditory imagination and esotericism in American music history.
