CODE INDIGO: DECIPHERING TIME CODE Code Indigo is a collective of English musicians that includes

Wednesday 09/10/03 A LIVING ROOM
CONCERT WITH ADRIAN LEGG Veteran English guitar eccentric, Adrian Legg plugs into the
Echoes Living Room for an extraordinary concert of guitar music
that defies categorization. Based in folk traditions from England
to Appalachia, Adrian Legg is nevertheless a thoroughly modern
musician, using a custom electric guitar with special banjo pitch-bending
pegs and an array of electronic processing effects. Although
his latest album, GUITAR BONES (Favored Nations Acoustic Records)
is all acoustic, Legg is decidedly electric when he plays some
of this music live on Echoes.
Thursday 09/11/03 AN ECHOES REQUIEM
2003 On the anniversary of September 11th, Echoes once again creates
a soundscape of remembrance and reflection, a counterpoint to
the news and analysis that will no doubt dominate the day. We'll
dispense with voices, and let music speak with many compositions
that have been inspired by the events of 9-11 and the aftermath.
Friday 09/12/03 PAT METHENY'S ACOUSTIC
REVERIES Pat Metheny is the most highly regarded of electric jazz guitarists,
noted for his sophisticated fusion with the Pat Metheny Group
and for taking extreme chances in his music, including electric
distortion freak-outs to recordings with Ornette Coleman. But
on his new album ONE QUIET NIGHT (Warner Bros.), the New York
based guitarist takes a turn towards quiet ruminations on solo
acoustic guitar, largely inspired by post 9-11 moods. Pat Metheny
talks about his improvised reveries.
