STEVE ROACH: MYSTIC CHORDS AND SACRED SEQUENCERS Steve Roach cut his teeth making sequencer-driven music full
of cycling note patterns and symmetrical design. It's been about
13 years since he abandoned that sound, but recently he's begun

and drone zone explorations. In Steve Roach's Tucson studio,
he plugs in to reveal some of his latest excursions including,
Life Sequences and Mystic Chords & Sacred Spaces.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH DEEP SKY DIVERS In a living room on the outskirts of London, the English synthesizer
band Deep Sky Divers play a rare live and in-the-moment concert.

YO-YO MA'S BRAZILIAN CHAMBER MUSIC Acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma spends as much time in the world
of cross-over as the world of classical music. On his latest
album, OBRIGADO BRAZIL (Sony Classical), Ma gathers an all-star
cast of Brazilian musicians including Sergio & Odair Assad,
singer Rosa Passos, composer and multi-instrumentalist Egberto
Gismonti and Cuban wind player Paquito D'Rivera, to play music
born of Brazilian breezes and Amazon forests. Yo-Yo Ma and his
musicians talk about a music of joy and that haunting Brazilian-Portugese
melancholy known as "saudade."
