Michael Whalen's CD of the Month and an Interview with Hans Christian
This weekend on Echoes it’s an electronic fantasy when we explore Sacred Spaces, a new synthesizer epic by Michael Whalen. With an array of keyboards and synths, Whalen creates an electro-orchestral symphony. Read John Diliberto’s review now and hear it when we play it on Echoes.
Some weekend listeners will also hear from cellist Hans Christian. He has been a fixture on Echoes for all its 30 years, both as a solo artist and with the duo, Rasa. His music has ranged from electronic to solo cello to Hindi chants. His latest album, After the Fall was the Echoes CD of the Month for February. He talks about this heavily electronic album that took him back to his roots which include Pink Floyd, Space music and time in the acoustic and spiritual places of his father’s church. John Diliberto goes to church with Hans Christian on Echoes.
