A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH LANTERNA Lanterna is Henry Frayne, a guitarist from Champaign, Illinois
who creates an evocative, haunting sound based in the twang of
surf guitar fed through delays and reverb. His album, HIGHWAYS
(Bad Man) was Echoes' CD of the Month for March. Henry Frayne
visits Echoes, where he plugs in his guitar and creates ambient
renditions of an Americana of the imagination.
ECHOES JUNE CD OF THE MONTH
BT: MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE FILM "MONSTER" (DTS) Monster was a harrowing film portrait of Aileen Carol Wuornos,
a street prostitute who was executed for killing seven men in
Florida during the 1980s. But counterpointing Wuornos's tragic
tale is a haunting score by BT (Brian Transeau). He crafts a melancholy
refrain of tremolo guitar, chime-like keyboards and ripped metal
into a haunting landscape. A special bonus of this disc is a DVD
5:1 surround CD. We get immersed in the score to Monster, the
Echoes June CD of the Month.
JEFF BEAL & NAWANG KHECHOG: SCORING TIBETAN TRAGEDY TIBET: CRY OF THE SNOW LION is the critically acclaimed documentary
about the plight of Tibet, filmed over the course of ten years
by director Tom Peosay. Scoring his horrific tale is film composer
Jeff Beal and Tibetan exile, former monk and flutist, Nawang Khechog.
Together they create a haunting score that borrows from the sounds
of the Himalayas with Tibetan horns, flutes, chants and percussion,
but arranged into an emotional underscore. Jeff Beal, Nawang Khechog
and Tom Peosay talk about their Tibetan odyssey.
MOYA BRENNAN: JOURNEY OF A CELTIC HARPIST Moya Brennan has been the voice of Clannad, the pioneering
Irish group for their entire 30 year career. She also has several
albums of her own; the latest is TWO HORIZONS (Universal Music),
a choral hymn to the Celtic harp and Irish mythology, but all
of which is underscored by her Christian faith. In this sound
portrait, Moya Brennan takes us along on her pilgrimage.
