FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
SOUND TRIBE SECTOR NINE: ARTIFACTS OF THE FUTURE Sound Tribe Sector Nine calls themselves a collective, integrating
guest musicians, multimedia artists and even the audiences at
their live shows into their expansive musical concept. Fundamentally
a band of accomplished instrumentalists, STS9 has made computer-based
looping and sampling an integral part of both their live shows
and recording process. Guitarist Hunter Brown and bassist David
Murphy talk about the intersection of electronica and improvisation
that's heard on their latest CD ARTIFACT.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH THE ALBUM LEAF On record, The Album Leaf is the brainchild of Jimmy Lavalle,
who composes the music and plays most of the instruments. But
on stage, he puts together a group of versatile and seasoned musicians
to give life to his music in concert. LaValle brings The Album
Leaf into the Echoes Living Room where they unfold the haunting
melodies and ambient moods of their CDs, IN A SAFE PLACE (Sub
Pop Records) and SEAL BEACH (Better Looking Records).
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH BLOW UP HOLLYWOOD Their name is certainly scary and threatening, but the music
of this New York-based art rock group ventures into regions of
dream pop, moody rock and evocative chamber instrumentals. Their
recent album, FAKE, is already garnering critical hosannas.
Blow Up Hollywood conjure up a special set for the Echoes soundscape
when the play live.
LAUREL MACDONALD'S LUCID LULLABIES On her latest CD LUSCINIA'S LULLABY, Laurel MacDonald sings
in Latin, Gaelic, English, and in a lighthearted vocalese that
owes as much to the swinging 60's pop of the Swingle Singers as
to the avant-garde of Meredith Monk. In their Toronto studio,
MacDonald and her partner, producer Philip Strong, layer voices,
rhythms and atmospheres to create soundtracks for modern dance
and independent films. We talk to Laurel MacDonald, Philip Strong
and Toronto Dance Theater choreographer Christopher House, about
music and movement.
