LARAAJI is a visionary musician, composer, and mystic who has enchanted audiences worldwide with his ethereal and transformative performances.

Born Edward Larry Gordon and educated in music theory and composition at Howard University, LARAAJI emerged as a pioneering figure in ambient and new age music after a chance encounter with producer Brian Eno in the 70s.

With a unique blend of celestial sounds, he has been hailed as a master of the hammered dulcimer and zither. LARAAJI’s music transcends conventional boundaries, seamlessly merging ambient textures with cosmic vibrations, creating an immersive and deeply introspective sonic journey.

Film Screening: Sisters with Transistors


SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS is the remarkable untold story of electronic music’s female pioneers, composers who embraced machines and their liberating technologies to utterly transform how we produce and listen to music today.

With Laurie Anderson as our narrator, the film maps a new history of electronic music through the visionary women whose radical experimentations with machines redefined the boundaries of music, including Clara Rockmore, Daphne Oram, Bebe Barron, Pauline Oliveros, Delia Derbyshire, Maryanne Amacher, Eliane Radigue, Suzanne Ciani, and Laurie Spiegel.

Arlo Contributes to the Pandemic Self Portrait Project! 

Life Love Loss
Photo taken in my mother's radiation mask.

Hurtling into the void. Remnants of a child who once believed in possibilities. Make way for the ‘new’ way, but it's always the same way.

Tired of the script and our world's strict adherence to it. Recognizing the fire only after it's consumed, leaving us all looking for a home, HURTling.

Over the last 5 months of isolation, went from preparing my mother for a fresh start after all this, to making her last days as joyful and comfortable as possible. She spent her life battling mental illness and overcoming abuse with very little recognition. Excited finally about the next chapter of her life, she was told it was over. She deserved so much better.

Selfishly thankful for the time, to bring our family together and care for the one who cared for us thanklessly and selflessly.

I Love You Mom!

Featuring A NEW Piece From
Diablo Montalban!

"Prison Is Hell"

Virtual Exhibition
July 13-Sept. 30, 2020

“Human life depends on the stories we tell.”
~Jack Zipes, The Cultural Evolution of Storytelling and Fairy Tales, 2012

“Listen” brings discovery and intrigue to McNichols Civic Center Building website through a virtual experience. Originally designed as a classic telephone booth transformed into a listening station, participants can listen to authentic stories recorded from often voiceless and invisible members of our community.

The first series of stories is told by men who spent 20 + years in prison. The men shared intimate and brutally honest stories about their childhoods, crimes, surviving prison and attempting to create ‘normal’ lives after their return to society.

As a sociologist and ex-counselor, creator Maureen Hearty has heard many stories of perseverance and defeat. These stories taught her that all people are worthy of respect, and capable of insightful life philosophies that teach us about empathy and gratitude, no matter who they are and what they’ve done. She aimed to bring these unseen people and their unheard stories, that are full of perspective-bending experiences, into the common realm of the people’s history, to encourage empathy for others while enlightening our own self-awareness.

“Listen” is supported by Denver Arts & Venues Cultural Partner Program.

March 22, 2020 Drive By Art Gallery!

Out for a drive and at a safe distance from others?

Stop by and visit the Hypnotic Turtle DreamBox, a tiny house of magic and art hidden in the suburbs of Broomfield, Colorado

The Hypnotic Turtle DreamBox is a “little lending library” that has been transformed into an unexpected art experience. Colorado Creative and Broomfield resident, Arlo White, opened the exhibit last summer in the hopes of fostering imagination through creativity, inspiring a sense of wonder, and engaging with community.

Arlo’s current DreamBox, "Science Fiction," pays homage to the sci-fi book and magazine covers of the ‘50s and ‘60s. He draws inspiration from rock n’ roll and pop culture and combines painting, mixed media, and “found objects” to create otherworldly pieces that are experiments in dimension, texture, and color.

Visitors can walk up and peer inside or drive by and see it from the street. Tune in via car radio to hear the eerie sounds coming from the DreamBox.

Prepare for your visit by checking out Hypnotic Turtle’s resident DJ, Diablo Montalban, the master of audio disaster, who just released his new video “Science Fiction (Song for Box)” https://youtu.be/uOiGYEcW7Xs

“Science Fiction” will be on display through spring. A new artist will take over and create their own DreamBox this summer. Follow Hypnotic Turtle on social media, visit their website (hypnoticturtle.com), or join their email list for updates and announcements.

Hypnotic Turtle DreamBox is located at 115 Garnet St., Broomfield, Co 80020

Hours for sights and sounds: Noon to 10 pm everyday

The TEARS OF SILVER TOUR mixes and matches four monsters of indie rock:

KEN STRINGFELLOW (The Posies, Big Star), JONATHAN DONAHUE & GRASSHOPPER (Mercury Rev) and JESSE CHANDLER (Midlake, Mercury Rev).

The evening will be a chance to enjoy the modern classics from each artist's long history as well as some new music they have created for the occasion (and certainly cover songs beloved to them repurposed and retooled for this tour). This is the first time Mercury Rev's music has been performed in many parts of America for nearly a decade.

The location of the venue will be emailed to ticket holders the day before the show.

All Ages.
