FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
DOUG WOOD: JOURNEYMAN GUITARIST Doug Wood is a journeyman guitarist living in Cleveland who
has been making a pastoral brand of acoustic guitar music that's
edged by a post-Michael Hedges sensibility. Doug Wood talks about
the evolution of his sound.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH JORANE Canadian singer-songwriter cellist, Jorane comes to Echoes
to reveal her intimate songs in our intimate living room, live.
There aren't too many singer-songwriters whose main instrument
is the cello. Jorane is a Canadian musician with several albums
released north of the border, but she recently released her first
U.S. recording, THE YOU AND THE NOW (Six Degrees), a haunting
disc of luminous cello driven songs and Jorane's darkly insinuating,
hymn-like vocals. We hear her playing live, on Echoes.
AN ANCIENT ECHO FROM POPUL VUH Popol Vuh was a legendary German band who scored most of Werner
Herzog's films including Aguirre, the Wrath of God. Florian Fricke,
the founder and principal composer of the group passed away a
few years ago. Now many of Popol Vuh's albums are being re-released,
many of them coming out for the first time ever in the U.S. We'll
be sampling a trio of thee recordings, including their soundtrack
JON HASSELL: Improvisations in Intuition Jon Hassell is a seminal figure in contemporary music. A student
of Karlheinz Stockhausen and a musician in LaMonte Young's Theatre
of Eternal Music, he has roots in mid-20th century experimentalism
and minimalism. On his own, he's crafted a fourth world music
that has embraced rhythms from Africa to Bali, all sliced through
with modern technology, dub grooves, ambient atmospheres and his
own vapor trail trumpet lines. He's been an influence on Brian
Eno, Steve Roach, Robert Rich and hundreds of other musicians.
In an LA studio where he's mixing his latest album, Jon Hassell
talks about his hallucinatory swirl of seductive rhythms and soul-searing
trumpet called Maarifa Street (Nyen).
