Hollan Holmes Sequencer Landscapes & Women in Wires

Hollan Holmes & John Diliberto

It’s an Electronic Weekend on Echoes.

Texas-based artist Hollan Holmes paints southern landscapes and rusty artifacts by day, but he heads into electronic space at night, composing music like his CD of the Month, Emerald Waters.

Hollan Holmes: I paint a lot of old rusty things and things of that nature.  That doesn’t really come across in my music because things that inspire me in my art are tangible, things that I can see and touch and feel. The things that inspire me in my music are rather intangible.

Hollan Holmes’s  album, Emerald Waters was Echoes February CD of the Month. We find out what’s behind it on Echoes.

Women in Wires

Women in Wires. We’re celebrating International Woman’s Day by looking at women who have plugged in. These artists have bypassed convention and created their own sonic landscapes for their music. This was a pretty hard show to do 30 or so years ago, but now the world is full of creative women electronic artists, although not nearly as many as their probably should be. They’ve been getting a little more attention since the commentary, Sisters with Transistors came out last year. We’ll take a run through these musicians from Delia Derbyshire and Wendy Carlos to Laurie Anderson, Sharon Van Etten and Grimes. Women in Wires, we plug them in on Echoes.
