Jon Porras is a Brooklyn based composer, musician and sound artist. According to his bio, Jon Porras (Barn Owl) creates drone music with a refined sense of atmosphere and remarkable forward motion. Regardless of the tools he uses, be it guitars and stacks of amplifiers or modular synthesizers, Porras creates cavernous sound-worlds that are as inviting as they are alien.

He has announced the release of a new album called Arroyo which will be out on April 22nd via Thrill Jockey. It is named for the Spanish word for “stream” in a nod to Porras’ heritage as a first generation Colombian-Japanese American, drifts gently from one tributary to the next in unhurried contemplation and euphoria.
