Music and Poetry of the Kesh is the documentation of an invented Pacific Coast peoples from a far distant time, and the soundtrack of famed science fiction author, Ursula K. In the novel, the story of Stone Telling, a young Nosepickenboogie - The Fabulous Zarsoff Bros.
- Rude Awakening of the Kesh, is woven within a larger anthropological folklore and fantasy. For Music and Poetry of the Keshthe words and lyrics are attributed to Le Guin as composed by Barton, an Oregon-based musician, composer and Buchla synthesist the two worked together previously on public radio projects.
But the cassette notes credit the sounds and voices to the world of the Kesh, making origins ambiguous. Both Barton and Le Guin are sensitive to the sovereignty of indigenous Californians and were careful not to trample the traditions of the Tolowa people who lived in the valley long before the Kesh. Within the Kesh culture, the numbers four and five shape the lives, society and rituals. Barton composed loosely around these numbers, patiently listening to the land of Napa Valley for signs and audio signals from the natural elements.
The songs of Kesh are joyful, soothing and meditative, while the instrumental works drift far past the imaginary lands. The Music and Poetry of the Kesh cassette was meant to accompany and enhance the experience of reading Always Coming Home. It can transport—offering a landscape for imagining a future homecoming. One in which we are balanced, peaceful, and tend to the earth and its creatures.
