An hour of Northern California mysticism with Fletcher Tucker. His latest album of ritualistic sound is called Unlit Trail. Like the previous, Cold Spring, it’s a record that settles deep into the sacred nature of existence. It’s an lp designed to welcome the listener “into a liminal state, beyond ordinary awareness,” and into the unknown. Tucker joined us to discuss Star Trek, animism, family, the Esalen Institute, human potential, and the deep history of his instruments and home in Big Sur, California.Transmissions :: Fletcher Tucker
