Echoes Christmas Week of Seasonal Soundscapes.
It’s Echoes Christmas Week with three seasonal shows to get you, keep you or take you beyond the seasonal spirit, with Christmas and Hanukkah sounds on Monday, An Echoes Night Before Christmas on Tuesday and An Echoes Christmas on December 25
On Monday, since it’s the start of Hanukkah we’ll hear some music for it including a Hanukkah tune from Grammy winners Opium Moon and new seasonal sounds by ambient guitarist Matt Borghi and R. Carlos Nakai & William Eaton’s classic Winter Dreams. We’ll also hear some regular old Echoes music by Vangelis and Grimes.
On Tuesday, get the sugar plums dancing with an Echoes Night Before Christmas. It’s a time when life seems suspended between the Christmas build-up and the explosion of Christmas morning. It’s not your shopping Mall Christmas carols. We’ll hear music from the Ornamental and Excelsis Volume 1: A Dark Noel albums, Jeff Johnson, Brian Dunning & Wendy Goodwin’s ‘s Winterfold and Smoke Fairies Wild Winter. We’ll also hear a deep ambient 73-minute take on “Silent Night” called “Silent Cycles” by Tim Story. Decorate your ears with seasonal music that’s cool and chilled on an Echoes Night Before Christmas.
On Wednesday, chill out your Christmas with more seasonal songs on An Echoes Christmas. We ease you out of Christmas day with Tom Caufield’s acoustic fantasy, I Heard It Was Christmas Day, Matt Borghi’s Ambient Guitar for Christmas and Gothic chants transformed by Voxfire and Jan Garbarek with The Hilliard Ensemble.
