YURT makes fake traditional music. Old instruments, melodies, rhythms, and practices are gathered up in a pine-needle basket. These are anthropological recordings of a primal interior culture. Grab a pick axe, a magic talisman, and some headphones and come on down to Yurt's psycho-spiritual excavation site.

Yurt is the instrumental/experimental work of Fletcher Tucker (also of Bird By Snow). Far out and far in music made in Big Sur. "Our current age is one of re-union, the old ways are alive in we modern people. Our super-spiritual, pre-cynical, borderless self is constantly saying 'remember me?'. Yurt is a container I created to explore the infinite resonance. Words are forgotten in favor of seed syllables– rhythms, chants and riffs of a more direct nature." – F.T.

Gnome Life has released one cassette tape of solo Jew's harp recordings by Yurt. More work is forthcoming.
