AN AMBIENT SUMMER SOLSTICE CELEBRATION
WITH STEVE ROACH, ROBERT RICH, JONN SERRIE AND JEFF PEARCE Echoes celebrates the summer solstice this year with a special
live performance recorded during last year's summer solstice at
the Whitaker Science and Art Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
in a collaboration with Echoes, the Whitaker Center and Echoes
affiliate, WITF in Harrisburg. Jeff Pearce journeys from Indiana
to unfold the intricacy of his solo ambient guitar meditations.
Bay area musician Robert Rich sets up a primal percussive throb
with synthesizer textures, flutes and lap steel guitar. Out of
the desert of Tucson, Steve Roach arrives to conjure summer thunder
at the edge of the abyss in his techno-tribal dervish. Jonn Serrie
travels from Atlanta, Georgia to walk the spaceways of his synthesized
planetarium music. On the longest day of the year, Echoes creates
a soundscape that causes the night to pulse.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH IAN BODDY Veteran English synthesist Ian Boddy crosses the pond to inaugurate
the new Echoes living room. In the summer of 2003, Ian appeared
on Echoes as part of Redshift when we recorded them in London.
This time, Ian comes in solo, plugs in his electronic rig and
fires up live renditions of music from his latest CD, CHIASMATA
BANSHEE IN THE KITCHEN: FROM EMERALD ISLES TO SUN BAKED FIELDS Banshee in the Kitchen is a trio of women from Bakersfield,
California who've gotten together to create their own take on
Celtic music. They've released a few albums, the latest under
the name of hammer dulcimer player Brenda Hunter is CATCHING THE
MOONCOIN (Speirbhean Records). Flutist and accordionist Jill
Egland and guitarist and bouzouki player Mary Tulin round out
Banshee in the Kitchen, firing through traditional Celtic tunes,
and Celtic inflected originals. We talk with the Banshees about
Celtic music in the flatlands of Bakersfield.
