Coming up on Echoes music from the Arab underground when we hear Yasmine Hamdan and her new album Al Jamilat (The Beautiful Ones). We’ll also hear new music from Clannad’s Moya Brennan and her album, Canvas.
On the next Echoes it’s Nordic Dreams. From Sigur Ros to Agnes Obel, Erik Wøllo to Ane Brun we’ll hear the sound coming out of Scandinavian musicians that seems to emerge from the other side of consciousness.
Morton Subotnick was a pioneer of electronic music. His 1967 album, Silver Apples of the Moon signaled a new way of making music that only used electronics. He talks about the early days of electronic music on Echoes.
