The Music and Poetry of the Kesh cassette was
meant to accompany and enhance the experience of
reading Always Coming Home. Presented in this edition
as a long-playing album, where only traces of the book
linger (the jacket offers some of Le Guin's illustration,
and a letterpressed bookmark featuring the the narrative
modes of western civilization and the Kesh valley
is included), the music alone breaking the silence of
what might be. 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.
A line from the Sun Dance poem reminds us, "We
are nothing much without one another." Freedom To
Spend gives new life to the recordings of the Kesh
people in the first ever vinyl edition of Music and Poetry
of the Kesh, out on LP, and digital formats on March
23, 2018. The LP will include a deluxe spot printed
jacket with illustrations from Always Coming Home, a
facsimile of the original lyric sheet, liner notes by Moe
Bowstern, multi-format digital download code and a
limited edition bookmark letterpressed by Stumptown
Printers in Portland, OR.
