Yung Coyote resides way out in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, between wooded rivers along the Batona Trail itself, the namesake of Batona Music.
Since his resurgence from the depths of the cedar swamp in 2012, he has become an infamous creature of the Pine Barrens. From the culture-altering Gridwork parties in Atlantic City to audio features in grand scale European art installations, his work so far as been powerful, yet sparse; until he brought us here, on this Path of Symbols.
In desolation, he can be found cutting trails to mythical dimensions of sound on global instruments and archaic machinery; carving messages into time through glorious notes and purifying echo. Coyote has been scanning all cultures modern and antique, and there is no telling what direction the trail may take next...
