Jonathan Wayne “Slate” Mills, scientist, educator, and musician, has succumbed to a recurrence of the cancer that plagued him for well over a decade. A performer at several of the Different Skies festivals at Arcosanti, Jonathan was responsible for a number of well-remembered compositions, including “The Fire Balloons”, a video for which may be seen here:
