BEST OF 2000

Tuesday January 2, 2001
Echoes goes in search of Eldorado, the city of gold and the 1990 album by influential synthesis, Patrick O'Hearn.  This over-looked CD proved prophetic with its Persian fusion designs.  Now out of print, we'll unearth Patrick O'Hearn's ELDORADO in an Ancient Echo.

Uttara-Kuru is a Japanese project band put together by Kazumasa Yoshioka and Seiichi Kyoda.  On their debut album, PRAYER (Pacific Moon), they put Buddhist chants to electronica beats.  Their second CD, EAST WIND (Pacific Moon), takes a more pastoral approach, merging traditional Japanese traditional folk songs and instruments like the shakuhachi and shamisen with western instruments.  Yoshioka and Kyoda talk about the exploration of their Asian heritage through a modern music.

A live performance by Harold Budd is a rare event. This early architect of ambience has explored a world of unrestrained melancholy and music he wanted to be "devastatingly beautiful."  His PLATEAUX OF MIRROR album, recorded with Brian Eno, is a landmark of ambient music.  On his latest CD, THE ROOM (Atlantic), Budd continues his ruminations.  A musician usually heard in electronic settings, we capture him in a purely acoustic performance, playing with a touch that producer Daniel Lanois said was like "playing feathers on the piano."
