An ECHOES SOUNDSCAPE FOR ST PATRICK'S DAY Echoes creates a soundscape in green for St. Patrick's Day,
including new music from Afro Celts and old favorites from Solas,
Skyedance, Davey Spillane and more.
DAVID & STEVE GORDON: SOUNDING THE TRIBAL DRUM David and Steve Gordon are brothers with a long history in
new age music. They started with prototypical new age albums in
the 1980s, mixing environmental sounds with wispy melodies for
guitar and keyboards. In the mid 1990s they decided to go tribal,
adopting Native American imagery and instruments on their album
SACRED SPIRIT DRUMS (Sequoia). They recently released an anthology
of their music, SACRED DRUM VISIONS, while Steve Gordon has stepped
out on his own with DRUM PRAYER, which takes the Gordons' sound
into a new direction. Echoes visits the brothers in their studios
in Northern and Southern California.
AN ECHOES VERNAL EQUINOX Echoes marks the coming of Spring with music for when day
and night are equal, seeds go into the ground, and flowers spring
to life. Celebrate the turning of the season with an Echoes soundscape
of ambient designs and acoustic textures drawn from nature as
crickets, birds, wind and ocean are drawn into a sonnet of music
to praise the world around us.
ECHOES AT THE OSCARS Echoes goes to the Oscars with music not only from this year's
soundtrack nominees, Thomas Newman and Philip Glass, but from
nominated movies whose soundtracks weren't deemed ready for Oscar,
but which are just right for Echoes.
