A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH AIR The French duo called Air is both retro and moderne, chilled
pop and ambient lounge. They created a splash in 1998 with their
album, MOON SAFARI (Astralwerks) featuring the oft heard instrumental
"La Femme D'argent" and the Moog driven pop song, "Sexy
Boy." This year they released their CD, TALKIE WALKIE (Astralwerks)
as well as contributing a piece to the film Lost in Translation.
Air comes into the Echoes living room to play music from their
latest CD and a cue from their soundtrack for "The Virgin
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH WILLIAM EATON William Eaton brings his exotic stringed instruments, like
the Lyre-Harp guitar, to Echoes, playing his music live. On his
latest album, SPARKS AND EMBERS (Canyon Records), Eaton deploys
his instruments in an exotic world chamber fusion that draws its
rhythms from the middle east and Africa, it's melodies from India
and Appalachia and it's atmosphere right out of the desert southwest
where the William Eaton Ensemble lives. With percussionist Will
Clipman, flutist Claudia Tulip, and violinist Allen Ames, Eaton
weaves global themes with Native accents live on Echoes.
THE MINISTRY OF INSIDE THINGS: ELECTRONIC DECRYPTION The Ministry of Inside Things is synthesist Chuck Van Zyl
and guitarist Art Cohen. Van Zyl is a disciple of 70's space
music and hosts the long-running space music radio show, Stars
End at WXPN in Philadelphia. When he isn't spinning CDs of heroes
like Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and their more recent descendants,
he creates his own electronic dreamscapes with Art Cohen. Their
debut CD is EVERLASTING MOMENT (Synkronos). In Van Zyl's Upper
Darby home, Van Zyl and Cohen talk about the inspiration, directions
and secrets of The Ministry of Inside Things.
