I have a theory that at one point we will have enough data from enough instances of weather that we will be able to accurately predict all future weather events. I'm not sure what that magical number of data points is, but I do believe we will cross that threshold eventually.

I know Jesse because one time I tricked him into helping me throw a weird dance party called Area Fifty-Fun in the middle of rural Utah.

It's because of that magical mystery moment that I've gotten to know Jesse and hear first hand about the cool underground stuff happening in SLC, a lot of which has been directly at the hands of Jesse over his 20+ years of DJing and promoting. Jesse is also the founder of New City Movement and the proud father of 3 cats.

I'm excited to share his uplifting disco set recorded live at an afterhours situation. Take it for a spin. You deserve it.

ANY006: Mr. Jesse Walker


What is a question you have about the future?
What is the fashion of the future? Hopefully unisex onesies like in most classic Sci-fi.
What is something from your past that you want to revive/revisit (philosophies, habits, friends, artists, foods, etc)
The world needs a revival of full-on wackadoodle tiki-bars. Some of my first vinyl records that weren’t my parents I found at thrift stores in Idaho Falls where I grew up. Exotica and Space-Age bachelor pad music was one of my first loves around the same time I got in to rave culture.
What is something you are excited to learn about?
What it is exactly I’m allergic to.
If you were an architect, what would you build?
A boutique budget motel! Or perhaps a futuristic home… say an updated take on the “House of Tomorrow” from the 1933 or '64 World’s Fair.
What song sounds like the future to you?
"Same River Twice” by Steve Hauschildt. The future is calming and serene.
In the future, I’ll never have to…
…pay for energy.
What's your personal slogan for the next 365 days?
“Be the change you want to see in the world"
We have to resist the crazy that’s enveloping us right now, all while keeping from lowering our standards or civility in general. Social media is a powerful tool but it’s also helping take us straight to the darkest depths. How can we organize this anger into positive change as well as support for leaders who will restore the balance. I try to personally never say or promote anything online I wouldn’t say person to person.
How do you expect dance music / nightlife to change under the new president?
More than ever music will be a form of pure escape as well as a way to communicate the message of the day. It’s hard to say if it will get better, worse, darker, or more experimental. I imagine music, and all art forms pushing harder in every direction.
What movie/art piece/tv show changed the course of your future?
Stalker (Film by Andrei Tarkovsky) opened me up to the idea that Science Fiction could be more political and existential in nature. On the Silver Globe by Andrzej Żuławski is also super interesting that way and very relevant today.
Any gigs coming up?
March 9 w/ Green Velvet (Cajual, Relief) at Metro Music Hall, SLC
March 11 w/ Jozif (Visionquest) location TBA, SLC

You can find Mr Jesse Walker on soundcloud, instagram and New City Movement


I always carry a kite with me in my car. It's an idea I got from a friend's grandpa.
I think wind is hilarious. I understand how it happens, but it still feels mysterious to me. Its invisible but very visceral.

This real time animated map shows wind speed and direction around the country, and its very pretty.


Forecasting is a classic example of seeing the future. But you don't need a smart phone or a weather station to know what the weather is up to. For instance, you can tell by looking at the surface of your morning coffee to see if we are in a high or low pressure system. Here are some no/low-tech ways to know what the weather is gonna be doing in the next 24-48 hours.

Outdoor Herbivore has a nice overview of weather stuff and even some useful observable phenomena to give you clues about the weather

Backpacker has some basic info and vocab about weather that even includes a handy quiz you can take!


Weather is one of the few things that we all collectively experience.

Olafur Eliasson's The Weather Project at the Tate Modern included the installation of a mirrored ceiling and a "Sun" in the Turbine Hall, but also a survey of how people relate to the weather and how the weather helps people relate to each other. His work deals primarily with phenomenology, nature, perception and science.

See pictures, videos and read some of the info gathered in the surveys.

Also, the Olafur Eliasson Studio Instagram account is really rad. Lots of cool art/science/optics experiments


There is an art installation where it rains indoors but you wont get wet. I tried to see it in LA back in September but it was closed for repairs. So join me in watching this video of it instead.

If enough people stood in the room, could we get the rain to stop?


The Weather Underground was a political action group active 1969-1977 that used bombing of (empty) federal buildings to make political statements about the United States' war engagements. Their name comes from the Bob Dylan lyrics "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows"

There was a documentary made about the organization in 2002.


When you name a cloud, you name it as it is in a moment in time. When I took this photo, these clouds in SE Utah were Cumulus clouds. A few hours later they were nothing.

Here is a nice video to help you understand different cloud names (or, Genera, as its called).

If you're interested in learning more, there are two apps for your phone: Coton and Cloudspotter. I like Coton better.

Or I can come give you a cloud identification workshop!


How much of the future is intentional, designed and controllable?
How much of the future is the emergent path based on the mishmash of people and their individual actions?
