Hello! I’m Art Levy. I’m a musician, writer, collage-maker, gardener, reader, and radio producer and host at KUTX 98.9 in Austin, Texas. This site is intended as a digital journal and sketchbook, focusing on process over product. I’m especially interested in juxtaposition, the old merging with the new, the texture of sound, and the intelligent chaos of nature. I also like dogs. Contact: artblevy at gmail dot com.
