ICONS OF ECHOES
Over the years certain artists have emerged as icons of the Echoes soundscape. These are musicians who shifted the direction of music, whose work influenced a generation and usually, musicians who also tend to be articulate thinkers about their art. In this series, you'll get all of the features Echoes has produced on these artists, often encompassing their entire careers.

DEAD CAN DANCE/LISA GERRARD-VOICES OF ECSTACY

Ecstatic vocals have been a part of Echoes for the last 13 years, and no one has brought us more ecstacy than Lisa Gerrard and Dead Can Dance. Lisa Gerrard and her Dead Can Dance partner, Brendan Perry, filtered sounds and spirits from the ancient past and merged them into a ritualistic music. They sound like they could have emerged from the crossroads of the crusades, but with the help of modern technology. Lisa Gerrard's immaculate voice intones words of a language of the imagination while Perry surrounds her with atmospheres and rhythms that propel the music forward. Dead Can Dance has broken up, but Gerrard has already established a solo career that will take her into the next decade of Echoes.
