A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH KITARO
Kitaro is one of the original avatars of modern instrumental music.
He started in a Japanese group called The Far East Family Band
before heading out on his own with the 1978 album, TEN KAI-ASTRAL
VOYAGE. Twenty three years and dozens of albums later, he's still
at it and this year won his first Grammy award for his album,
THINKING OF YOU (Domo). Kitaro has just released a new CD, ANCIENT
(Domo). He descends from his ranch in the mountains above Boulder,
Colorado to come to the Echoes living room to play a couple of
pieces live. Only instead of synthesizer, Kitaro plays Native
American flute, accompanied by his wife, Keiko, on keyboards.
It's a rare live performance by Kitaro, on Echoes.
RUDY ADRIAN: AWASH IN AMBIENCE
Rudy Adrian has led a sheltered life. Growing up in New Zealand,
the synthesist actually thought he created ambient music. He's
discovered otherwise since his music has been drifting out into
the world from his island homeland. We talk with Rudy Adrian
about his New Zealand ambiences.
ECHOES OF THE HEART
Echoes celebrates St. Valentine's Day with a sensual soundscape
of atmospheric moods and poetic murmurs. We'll hear evocations
of love from the country that brought us the Kama Sutra and some
deep ambient trances of the heart.
