Jung-inspired Psychedelic Rock

The Baltimore band Arbouretum releases its new album, The Gathering, today. The album was largely inspired by Jung’s Red Book. You can read an article about the recording of the album here and visit the band’s blog here. Leader Dave Heumann’s lyrics “employ elaborate and allegorical imagery, borrowing themes from Jung and Bowles to explore the depths of the mind.”

Bert’s Red Book

No, not on Sesame Street, but in an exhibition at the Galveston Arts Center from January 22 through March 6, 2011. Houston-based artist Bert Long used Jung’s Red Book as a source, and used his own dreams and visions to create a series of paintings and drawings—his own Red Book. View images from Long’s Red Book series at his website.
