The Imaginary Paradise of Richard Burmer in Echoes Podcast
On the 10th anniversary of his death, we remember electronic composer Richard Burmer. Burmer was among the California electronic scene of the early 1980s that included Steve Roach, Robert Rich and Michael Stearns. Creating his own instruments through sampling, Burmer composed orchestras of sound that were dynamic, epic and unrelentingly melodic. He died on August 9, 2006. We remember this artist whose music still sounds so true. We hear archival interviews with Burmer, as well as remembrances from musicians Steve Roach, Michael Hoppé, and Hollan Holmes, and Hearts of Space founder and host, Stephen Hill.
