Wordless Echoes – American Landscapes 2015

Five hours of continuous instrumental soundscapes celebrating Independence Day.

GrandCanyon_Outcrop2_BW-1000Every independence week we take a trek from sea to shining sea and all those other places to create a soundscape of America. In this special On-Line Only stream we’ll hear evocations of the desert southwest, the Appalachian trail, and Maine forests. Imagine yourself staring at the red skies of Sedona, paddling down the Swannanoa River in North Carolina or traveling the Frio River in Texas. Those are only a few of the locations we’ll be wandering in a soundscape of Ambient Americana. This is our way of celebrating the Fourth of July Weekend. Less dangerous than fireworks and healthier than whatever you have on the grill.

But weaving all through the five hours is the ambient Americana side of the show, that sound that merges western and country influences with ambient production and moods. It’s a sound that effectively began with Ry Cooder’s Paris, Texas soundtrack but it has continued over the years with artists like Lanterna, Bruce Kaphan and Bill Frisell. It’s something you might imagine as the score to Once Upon a Time in the West or Hell On Wheels.

It’s a five-hour soundscape that includes Scott August, Paul Winter, Philip Aaberg, Tycho, Pat Metheny & Lyle Mays, R. Carlos Nakai, Patrick O’Hearn and more. So saddle-up and get ready for a unique kind of music for Independence weekend. It’s Ambient Americana at Echoes On-Line.
