Riding the Storm with Russel Walder: The Echoes Interview
Our CD of the Month in October was Speak to the Storm by Russel Walder. it was so compelling i had to talk to the oboe player who we first knew as one half of the duo Ira Stein and Russel Walder on Windham Hill Records. Because the music he makes on his own in his adopted home of New Zealand, is quite a bit darker than anything he recorded with the duo. When he says speak to the storm, he means it.
Russel Walder: I absolutely believe that the internal conscious state of existence is a storm that never ends, ever.
He’s created a hallucinogenic world fusion album that speaks to a different way of looking at consciousness. We’ll talk to him about the psychological weather, virtual instruments and more.
