LOOP GURU TAKES A BATH Loop Guru is the longtime ethno-techno band from England,
willfully lifting samples from records that go acorss cultures
and time, re-mixing them into their own, often atmospheric, rhythmically
pulsing compositions. They've just released their first CD in
5 years, Bathtime with Loop Guru (Hypnotic Records). We enter
the studio of Loop Guru co-founder Dave Muddyman and his partner
in sonic crime, Sam Dodson, to talk about their latest formulation.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH JOHN WUBBENHORST John Wubbenhorst is an American musician, but he specializes
in the Indian bamboo flute called bansuri. For the last several
years, he's been creating an east-west fusion with his group,
Facing East, combining guitar and bass along with Indian percussion.
John Wubbenhorst and Facing East eschew seats and instead, sit
on the floor for an Echoes Living Room Concert, playing music
form their latest CD, Facing Beloved (Facing East Productions).
SERART: PAN-GLOBAL LINGUISTICS Serart is an unlikely combination of Serj Tankian, lead singer
of nu-metal group, System of a Down and Armenian-Turkish multi-instrumentalist
and singer Arto Tunçboyaciyan. Arto has played with Night
Ark, Al DiMeola and new age pioneer Paul Winter. He sings in
an imaginary supralingua dialect and is as likely to beat on your
trash can as play the many exotic Middle Eastern stringed and
percussion instruments he has at his command. Tankian places
those sounds in a fractured mix of electronica jungle grooves,
eclectic samples, metal guitar stabs and shattered rhythm structures.
The two artists talk about the joyfully chaotic mosaic on their
self-titled debut (Serjical Strike/Columbia Records).
