Tuesday, Jan 5, 2021 – Echoes Program 2101B

Amon Tobin was an early pioneer of jazz driven electronic music at the turn of the millennium, and now, after a four-year hiatus, he’s returned with new music and new pseudonyms, including the psychedelic persona of Figueroa, where he even sings. John Diliberto drops a tab when he talks to Amon Tobin on Echoes.

Wednesday, Jan 6, 2021 – Echoes Program 2101C

We talk about brain tumors, dreams, pandemic, and some of the best music of 2020, when we talk with Erik Wøllo and Michael Stearns. Stearns is a legend of electronic music from the 1980s. His album, Planetary Unfolding is a classic. Erik Wøllo isn’t far behind, with 5 CD of the Month picks over the last 30 years. But their first collaboration, Convergence almost got terminated.

Michael Stearns: I took the train down to Berlin to visit a friend for 3-4 days before I came back here. And I had a seizure and they took me to the hospital and discovered a brain tumor, so I was in Berlin for the whole month of March and got the last flight out on United Airlines back to the US.

We talk with Erik Wøllo and Michael Stearns about the trauma and dreams behind their September CD of the Month, Convergence .

Read John Diliberto’s review of Convergence.
