Matt Marble (b. 1979, Mississippi) is an artist, author, and audio producer currently living in Greensboro, NC. Both creatively and through historical research his work explores the inspired intersections of art and spirituality and the intuitive disciplines they mutually employ. Matt is the author of Buddhist Bubblegum: Esotericism in the Creative Process of Arthur Russell ("groundbreaking work," New York Times), published by Coolgrove Press. He is also the host of Secret Sound, an audio series revealing the influence of esoteric spirituality on marginalized voices in American music history. Matt's visual art and music are often rooted in his own dreamwork divination practice--the Astramira or "Wondering Stars"--which has been featured as a solo art exhibition at Greensboro Project Space. Matt holds a BA in Speech & Hearing Science from Portland State University, a PhD in music composition from Princeton University, and a totemic black rattlesnake from his dreams.
