30 Icons of Echoes: Brian Eno & Steve Roach
This weekend we revisit the top 2 of our 30 Icons for 30 Years of Echoes. The number one Icon is Brian Eno. He has influenced our sonic landscape for nearly a half-century. We’ll hear an interview profile on Eno and music from across his career, as we delve into all things Eno, from ambient to abstraction and beyond. See John Diliberto’s list of 10 Essential Brian Eno Albums.
Steve Roach was voted #2 of 30 Icons of Echoes. In a special two-hour Echoes, it will be all Steve Roach.
When we created Echoes 31 years ago, Steve Roach was one of the artists at the forefront of our thoughts. In fact, he was the first artist ever heard on the show since he composed the theme song we used in our earlier years. He has continued evolving his sound across that time, chronicled with a prolific outpouring of releases. While other artists from the early years of Echoes have faded away, Steve Roach has remained vital. He is the second of 30 Icons of Echoes.
John Diliberto looks across the career of this influential artist, who has gone from Berlin School sequencers to techno-tribal, and back again. Steve Roach, an Icon of Echoes.
