DEEP SKY DIVERS: NORTH COUNTRY SPACE MUSIC Deep Sky Divers are an electronic duo from Northern England
and southern Scotland. Inspired by German space music, they've
been forging their own electronic designs on albums like THE NEW
FAST LANE (Any Robinhood). Synthesists Jon Short and David Jones
talk about their music and Jon pounds out the melody of their
best known tune, "Raging Calm" on the very same upright
piano on which he learned to play as a child.
CLIFF MARTINEZ: SOUND SCULPTURE SOUNDTRACKS Cliff Martinez is one of the more idiosyncratic of Hollywood
film composers. The original drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers,
he's since carved out a niche career with his atmospheric soundtracks,
mostly for director Steven Soderbergh including Sex, Lies and
Videotape and Solaris. In addition to the usual film composers
tools of orchestra and synthesizers, Martinez has custom instruments
including American gamelan and the other-worldly sound sculptures
of the French Baschet brothers. He merges these into haunting
scores that brim with atmosphere and mystery. In his Los Angeles
home, Martinez plays his instruments and talks about the interior
spacescapes of Solaris and his latest film, Wicker Park.
IAN BODDY & MARK SHREEVE: WELDING THE ANALOG ARC Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve are now the grand old men of English
space music. Since the late 1970s, Ian Boddy has released dozens
of solo recordings. Mark Shreeve came along a few years later,
but has several solo albums to his credit as well as a pack of
CDs with his group, Redshift. The pair also record as a duo called
Arc and they have a new CD out, BLAZE (DiN Records). In Mark Shreeve's
London studio, the duo talk about creating retro space music in
the modern world.
