Peter Lamborn Wilson

In the spring of 2015 Chris Funkhouser traveled to the Woodstock, NY home of Peter Lamborn Wilson for a series of nine recording sessions. The results of those efforts — split into twenty sets in total — can be found below. Start times for individual poems within each set can be found in curly brackets, while page numbers corresponding to this 2014 collection of Wilson's unpublished poems are found in square brackets. Listeners will want to consult Funkhouser's notes on his recordings, "Peter Lamborn Wilson: A PennSound Archive," published at Jacket2.
