The Echoes May CD of the Month is a collaboration between trumpeter Jeff Oster, guitarist Vin Downes and multi-instrumentalist Tom Eaton. Back in 2017, they came into our studio to play a live, improvised set of ambient music. At the time, and on the spot, they called themselves Departure. You can hear that concert here. It’s taken 7 years, but they have finally released an album, Seven Conversations.  They changed their name, but the music remains the same. Their album, Seven Conversations, is a journey of ambient improvisations and intimate interplay. John Diliberto features it as the May CD of the Month on Echoes from PRX.

Limina (Tyler Durham)

Take Sigur Ros, add in strings and a more classical sensibility and you wind up with Limina. That’s the project of Tyler Durham. He’s a journeyman film composer who creates additional music to accompany scores by Pinar Toprak and James Newton Howard. But Limina is his own expression. He creates his music electronically, but then takes his string and orchestral parts to a real orchestra to perform.  Then he messes with that electronically.  The result is a haunting album called Coming Home, that tells a tale of travel and hidden thoughts. John Diliberto talks to Limina on Echoes from PRX.
