Weekend, Mar 21-22, 2020 – Alex Somers & Celtic Sounds

Alex Somers' Ambient Soundtracks: The Echoes Interview

Alex Somers is a name you hear on the fringes. He’s produced people like singer Briana Marella and Julianna Barwick.  He worked on the last two albums from Icelandic Icons, Sigur Ros and then formed a duo with Jonsi from that band. And now he’s in Hollywood scoring major films like Captain Fantastic, Honey Boy and Taylor Swift’s Miss Americana. I caught up with him in his LA studio where we talked about ambient drama.

Some weekend listeners will also hear Celtic airs and graces on a Celtic Soundscape for St. Patrick’s Day. John Diliberto dials up the ethereal side of Celtic sounds including new music by Clannad and Seamus Egan and classics by Enya, Afro Celt Sound System and Jeff Johnson. It’s all going green, the Irish way.
