As one half of Barn Owl, Jon Porras follows in the footsteps of his drone duo for his solo outings, making ambient soundscapes with a lone guitar. His first album, Undercurrent, was released on Rootstrata in 2011, and 2012's Black Mesa followed on Barn Owl's label of choice, Thrill Jockey. Porras returned in 2014, shifting from the more arid desert sounds of Black Mesa to a more throbbing and electronic palette with third album Light Divide.
