FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
DWELLER AT THE THRESHOLD ANSWERS A KNOCK ON THE DOOR The children of 1970's Space Music were born years ago. Now,
the grandchildren of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Jean Michel
Jarre are emerging. Among them are a Portland, Oregon group called
Dweller at the Threshold. This synthesizer trio creates ambient
spacescapes mixing old-style analog synthesizers with newer digital
versions. Dweller recently released a three disc retrospective
called FULL BOUNDARY CONDITION (Quantum Records). A few years
ago we talked with the Dwellers about music born in electronics
and launched into space.
ACOUSTIC EIDOLON: AMERICAN EIDOLON Acoustic Eidolon creates a delicate chamber music based on
the guitjo of Joe Scott and the cello of Hannah Alkire. The guitjo
is a hybrid, double necked acoustic guitar combining a regular
guitar and a banjo. Scott first unveiled it in his previous band,
Wind Machine. With Hannah Alkire, he plucks out a delicate filigree,
sounding more like harp than banjo. Their latest album is LIVE
TO DANCE (Acoustic Woods). Acoustic Eidolon conjures up a music
born in romance, tragedy and affirmation.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH LORI CARSON Even though she's worked with avant-rock group the Golden
Palominos and Bill Laswell, Lori Carson was best known as a singer-songwriter.
But that's not the sound of her new CD, THE FINEST THING (Meta
Records). Instead, she's concocted a shadowy ambient dreamscape
full of breathy vocals, sometimes singing lyrics, more often not,
surrounded by a chamber group of echoes and memories. Lori Carson
comes into the Echoes living room to open an ambient scrapbook
of musings and murmurings.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH R. CARLOS NAKAI Celebrated Native American flutist R. Carlos Nakai takes a
seat in the Echoes Living Room, pulls out his flute and weaves
tales of the desert southwest and Colorado mountains. He talks
about his new CD of flute solos, SANCTUARY (Canyon) and reflects
on the evolution of Native American music and the Native flute.
