FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH ACOUSTIC EIDOLON Eidolon means a phantom or an image of an ideal. The duo called
Acoustic Eidolon subscribe to the latter definition and when they
appear in the Echoes living room, they are definitely not an apparition.
We'll hear Acoustic Eidolon, the couple of Joe Scott and Hannah
Alkire, entwine their guitjo, a guitar-banjo hybrid, and cello
in their intricate, chamber music sound, live on Echoes.
JUNO REACTOR: MUSIC MAGIC MATRIX Juno Reactor is a techno-ambient collective centered on Ben
Watkins. He began as a more conventional techno-composer but has
expanded his sound considerably to include flamenco guitars, Latin
Chants and heavy metal thunder. In recent years he's composed
music for the Matrix films and he's just released the latest Juno
Reactor CD, LABYRINTH (Metropolis Records). Ben Watkins talks
about his own music matrix.
ECHOES JANUARY CD OF THE MONTH
GREEN ISAC: ETNOTRONICA Green Isac inhabits a quirky world of ambient music where
charming melodies and arrangements fall somewhere between faux-exotica
and the trash heap, a meeting ground of the Penguin Café
Orchestra with Cluster. The duo includes a member of the Norwegian
pop group, Bel Canto and their singer, Annelli Drecker. She appears
on Etnotronica as Green Isac Green Isac orchestrates an often
haunting sound world, with a twinkle in their eyes. We've picked
it as our CD of the Month for January 2005.
LIFE IN BALANCE: SPINNING BOWLS Tibetan singing bowls have been with us for a long time. Life
In Balance is a Pittsburgh-based duo that trades the metal bowls
for quartz crystal bowls and mixes them with flutes and electronics.
Life in Balance are Steve and Ami Sciulli. Steve handles the flutes
and electronics, while Amy uses the bowls you won't find in any
kitchen. Their music ranges from deep meditative drones to the
electronica dance grooves of their latest CD, STAR. Life in Balance
shows us the way.
