Welcome to Koda’s Place

Koda is a free-thinking, highly creative person. Widely known as the main songwriter, lead guitarist and vocalist in the band Psychic Trance Fur (and his other music projects) he is also recognized as the person who discovered the phenomenon of visual telepathy — and developed the exercise which enables essentially anyone to experience it in just minutes. (See his book, Rational Spirituality — the exercise is presented here, free). Other books include Koda’s Psychic Party Games, and an exciting, gender bending, metaphysical novel called The Change which was published under the pseudonym D. C. Candi. All the books currently have 5-star ratings on Amazon.

He also invented Audio Animation, a theoretical process which enables a listener wearing headphones to see 3-dimensional images or “sound shapes” occurring in the space all around them — using their ears. (If you close your eyes and move your arm in a wide circle while continually snapping your fingers, you will HEAR A CIRCLE.)

Koda has invested thousands of hours attempting to create “impossible” inventions such as inertial propulsion (a way to convert centrifugal force into something that acts like anti-gravity) and a method of separating the hydrogen and oxygen in water that would result in producing free energy. He created the soon to be launched astro-dating website, which will enable members to search by astrological compatibility and print astrological compatibility reports with other members.

Now 66-years-old, he recently attempted to get a sex change “just for fun” but the medical profession refused to do it because he doesn’t want to live as a woman. During that process he developed lactating breasts and is selling his visual art with drops of milk on the back as an obviously pretentious marketing gimmick.

Hi. I’m Koda. I wrote the above in third person to make it seem a little less weird, though I am obviously rather unconventional in some ways. You will find much of my creative work on this site, books, music, art, poetry, philosophy, inventions, etc. There is enough here to keep you occupied all day. I am currently living in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, where I grew up, after spending 5 years on the big island of Hawaii. I am planning on building an earth-sheltered house near Tucson, Arizona, soon and will document that process here. I could use some help with sophisticated web development, video production and marketing, so if you have those skills, or would like to contact me for any other reason, I can be reached via email at koda@kodasplace .com. (You will need to remove the space in front of .com for the address to work.)

Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy your time here :)


The books listed here have their own webpage with descriptions and samples of their content. All the finished books can be found in stores and online retailers like Amazon.com, and are also available as ebooks.

Creating music has been my primary career ambition since I was 20-years-old, though I have yet to make a profit due to avoiding playing live and not writing songs in any particular genre. I consider myself to be an artist rather than an entertainer, and the songs I write range from acoustic guitar and rock to spacey psychedelic stuff. I am very confident there are some songs here you will like A LOT.

Visual Art

I used Photoshop to create the images presented here, with me often starting with images of naked women then manipulating them into oblivion. If you look carefully you can sometimes find breasts hidden in images, but they won’t always be there. Trying to spot them can be an entertaining game. Larger online images. along with desert photography shots, can be found at the PsyCom Art site. Prints are available in various sizes and formats. If you see something you like just send me a note on the contact form.

I have already mentioned Audio Animation. There is an article on that here, as well as pages describing my efforts to make an “anti-gravity” (inertial propulsion) machine, a way to break water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen gas with (hopefully) enough efficiency to enable cars (and everything else) to run on water, and other less radical ideas.

There is all kinds of stuff in this section. Links to videos, 2 short stories, 9 pomes, lyrics to many of my songs, a screenplay, etc. There is a link to The Dreamers website where I present some possible solutions for our socioeconomic problems. I have been working on an astrological compatibility dating site, astro-dating.com, since 1995, and hope to get it up and running soon. There are also links where you can download lucid dream induction recordings and desktop wallpaper of the Infinite Images piece you can find in the art section.

PsyCom Art

Mostly the best images from the art gallery here (with larger online images) and desert photos. Available as prints on photo enlargement paper up to 20″x30″ or larger prints on canvas or vinyl. I have also included artwork by other Utah artists there.

There ARE solutions to all the socioeconomic problems in the world. Like anything else, if something is broken you simply find the problem and fix it. The solutions involve applying reason, freedom, opportunity and fairness. I created The Dreamers to explain how to do that.

DreamMaster [screenplay]

A would-be rock star in 1976 finds himself in the body of a sexy young blond girl in 1883 and gets caught up in a war where the two sides battle in steam powered spaceships.

Short Fiction

White“- a tragically brief romantic encounter. | “The Quiet Shareholder” – has something to say about the manipulations of big business.


A few of my best poems.
