Emancipator, Rena Jones, and Flowerpulse Interview
Emancipator, Rena Jones, and Flowerpulse weave their electronic roots together into the ambient excursion of Xylem, their debut album. Emancipator has been featured heavily on the show with his gritty electronic sound, while Rena Jones is an old favorite who mixes electronics with her cello and violin. Flowerpulse is her husband (Marc Sciglimpaglia) and he’s a solo electronic artist as well. They converge on music drawn from nature, with sounds recorded in the wilds of Oregon and electronically transformed into their organic mulch. We to the garden with three electronic explorers on Echoes.
Some weekend listeners will also hear Pat Metheny, the 13th Icon of Echoes. We’ll hear him talk about his latest release, one on which he barely plays guitar. It’s called Road to the Sun and features the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet and Jason Vieaux playing new Metheny works. Pat and LAGQ talk about it on Echoes.
