Ulrich Schnauss Falls to the Top of Echoes Top 25
Music with Progressive Rock roots dominates the Echoes Top 25 for February. Ulrich Schnauss’ A Long Way to Fall was the Echoes CD of the Month. His inspirations are in 70s German space music and Krautrock as are all the musicians on the Manikin Records Second Decade 2002-2012 collection as well as Ian Boddy and Bertrand Loreau. Brian Reitzel, the soundtrack composer looks to Pink Floyd for adapting “Moonlight Sonata” to a post-rock sound on his score to Boss, while Jon Durant & Colin Edwin are the children of Genesis, King Crimson and the Mahavisnu Orchestra, not to mention that Edwin is a member of the progrock band, Porcupine Tree. Check out the rest of the Progressive evolution in the Echoes Top 25 for February.
