A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH NIGEL SHAW Join us in the 800 year old farmhouse of Nigel Shaw and his
wife, Carolyn Hillyer when they take us back in time to the ancient
music of the Northernlands. Shaw's latest album is Ancestors
(Seventh Wave) on which he adapts recordings of northern native
tribes like the Sami and builds his own compositions around them.
Accompanied by these old, and often long dead voices singing
ancient songs, Nigel and Carolyn play live with Nigel on Native
flute and Carolyn singing and playing percussion.
Tuesday 08/26/03 AUGUST CD CLUB SELECTION
Tim Story & Hans-Joachim Roedelius/Lunz Lunz is a lake in Austria, but it might as well be a lake
of the imagination as Tim Story and Hans-Joachim Roedelius create
a haunting soundscape of refined elegance and introspective moods
that take a subtle shift to the left of reality. Tim Story needs
no introduction for Echoes listeners. We coined the term "ambient
chamber music" to describe his sensual liquid sound that
merges classical influences along with electronic ambiences and
a gift for melody that would leave Erik Satie crying. Hans-Joachim
Roedelius is one of Tim's mentors. A founding member of the German
electronic duo Cluster (then called Kluster) in 1970, he's gone
on to release dozens of recordings ranging from pure ambient to
classical works. Roedelius and Story have been working together
for a few years, and finally they've released an album together
called Lunz. Its melodies linger like the aftermath of a dream,
both familiar and strange, painted in water-color textures that
make each melody shimmer like quicksilver.
BOB HOLROYD'S GLOBAL PLUNDER Bob Holroyd has the world at his fingertips, or at least on
sample discs he uses to create his ethno-techno sound designs.
He had a dance club hit a couple of years ago with his percussion
driven "African Drug", but his latest CD, Without Within
(Six Degrees) takes a more introspective approach to global fusion.
In his English studio, Holroyd talks about making library music
and adapting the sound of the world form musicians he's never
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH SAVAE Join us in the living room of SAVAE [SAH-vay] the San Antonio
Vocal Arts Ensemble when they intone the hymns and songs of their
new CD, ANCIENT ECHOES. SAVAE has created an international following
for music that unearths ancient Judeo-Christian hymns from around
the world, sometimes played with medieval instruments, oather
times using Aztec drums and Meso-American wind instruments.
But always centered on their seven voice harmonies. We travel
to the living room in San Antonio where SAVAE create their music
to hear them perform live.
