Echoes Playlist
Bill Fontana is a trained musician and composer, but his music doesn't use any orchestral instruments. Instead, he takes natural sounds from the environment, like ocean waves at Normandy, the clockworks of Big Ben, or the foghorns of his home by the San Francisco Bay, and transmits them to distant locales. Fontana creates a sonic dislocation, allowing us to hear these sounds and landscapes in new ways. In his studio, Bill Fontana takes us out to the world and into sound.
