Agnes Obel Interview and Fiona Joy Hawkins & Rebecca Daniel Live This Weekend on Echoes.
This weekend on Echoes, Danish singer Agnes Obel. She creates a haunting ambient chamber pop music. She’s been a big part of the show since her 2010 debut, Philharmonics, an Echoes CD of the Month, as was her last album, Citizen of Glass. She puts out a great album about every 3 years and her new one follows suit. It’s called Myopia. It’s a look inside Obel’s head.
Agnes Obel:: I’ve tried to, to recreate different states of mind that I’ve experienced and my wish is that the listener is sort of stepping into that and experiencing that state of mind in my perspective.
On Myopia, she explores states of mind from insomnia to loss, all couched in her muted arrangements and whammy bar voice. John Diliberto talks with Agnes Obel on Echoes.
Some weekend listeners will also hear a serene and free-flowing exploration of chamber music moods when we hear pianist Fiona Joy Hawkins and violinist Rebecca Daniel in a beautiful and intimate performance playing music from their album, The Lightness of Dark. Fiona Joy Hawkins goes the deepest she’s gone on a recording and the mix of their two instruments, plus Daniel’s wordless soprano voice and Hawkin’s ethereal whisper makes this session intoxicating. Fiona can also be heard recently playing live on Echoes with FLOW. You can hear that concert streaming now. But tonight, take a front row seat to Fiona Joy Hawkins and Rebecca Daniel live on Echoes.
