FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
FRITZ HEEDE & JOHN BANKS: ILLUMINATED PSYCHEDELIA Animated DVDs usually have pedestrian images or derivative,
canned music, but Fritz Heede and John Banks' DVD, ILLUMINATED
MANUSCRIPTS, defies that precedent. The disc is full of surreal,
images that morph and flow one into the other creating a world
of fantasy and light where doors open into glistening vistas and
chairs are swallowed by vines. Fritz Heede's music follows suit
with a delirious, eastern-inspired swirl of propulsive hand drum
rhythms, ambient moods and melodies that spin like a dervish refracted
in time. We create a sonic journey into the surreal world of Illuminated
Manuscripts with Fritz Heede and John Banks.
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.
AIR: RETRO-FUTURIST SEX AND SOUND Air is the innovative French band who came to renown in 1998
with their album MOON SAFARI. They recently released their third
full-length CD, TALKIE WALKIE (Astralwerks), which explores themes
of love and moods of retro-futurism. We talk with Nicholas Godin
and Jean-Benoit Dunckel about their nostalgic look at love and
creating scores for films like Lost in Translation.
LANTERNA: AMBIENT AMERICANA Lanterna is Henry Frayne, a guitarist from Champaign, Illinois
who creates an evocative, haunting sound based in the twang of
countryfied guitar fed through delays and reverb. His album, HIGHWAYS
(Bad Man) was Echoes' CD of the Month for March. Henry Frayne
enters the Echoes Living Room, where he reveals roots that go
back to Revox tape machines and gothic rock.
