ROBERT FOX'S ELECTRONIC THEATRE Robert Fox is a veteran English synthesist who started as
a drama teacher making music as soundtracks to plays he was directing
in Wales. Fox is still teaching and directing, but he also releases
dense, orchestral electronic albums on his own and as a member
of Code Indigo. His latest work, UNDERWORLD, comes from a production
of Faust. We talked to Fox in England about his unconventional
career and predilection for electric space epics.
AN ECHOES ST. PATRICK'S CELEBRATION WITH MOYA BRENNAN Moya Brennan was the voice of Clannad, the Irish band that
paved the way for the new Celtic music of the 1980s and 90s.
Now on her own, Brennan continues with a spiritualized music,
neither Celtic nor New Age, rock nor folk. She recently released
a new CD called TWO HORIZONS (Universal Music). Moya Brennan
comes into the Echoes Living Room with her band to play Celtic
harp and sing her symphony for the voice. Moya Brennan is the
centerpiece of an Echoes St. Patrick's Celebration.
DEEP SKY DIVERS: NORTH COUNTRY SPACE MUSIC Deep Sky Divers are an electronic duo from northern England
and southern Scotland. Inspired by German space music, they've
been forging their own electronic designs on albums like THE
NEW FAST LANE (Any Robinhood). Synthesists Jon Short and David
Jones talk about their music and Jon pounds out the melody of
their best known tune, "Raging Calm" on the very same
upright piano on which he learned to play as a child.
AN ECHOES VERNAL EQUINOX Celebrate the turning of the season with an Echoes soundscape
of ambient designs and acoustic textures drawn from nature as
crickets, birds, wind and ocean are drawn into a sonnet of music
to praise the world around us.
