The children of 1970's Space Music were born years ago. Now, the grandchildren of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Jean Michel Jarre are emerging. Among them are a Portland, Oregon group called Dweller at the Threshold. This synthesizer trio creates ambient spacescapes mixing old- style analog synthesizers with newer digital versions. Dweller recently released the album, OUROBORUS (Hypnos), while Dweller member Paul Ellis just put out his second CD, INTO THE LIQUID UNKNOWN (Hypnos). We talk to the Dwellers about music born in electronics and launched into space.

Shaman's Dream reveals the incantations of their meditative music on Echoes. Shaman's Dream is percussionist Craig Kohland and sitar/guitarist Chuck Jonkey. Jonkey is a global traveler who brings back sound recordings and instruments from around the world. With Craig Kohland they merge these into global soundscapes that take a meditative hue until you listen deeper to the environmental designs, global percussion and the sitar/guitar of Chuck Jonkey. Custom designed, it looks like a guitar but plays like a sitar. Their latest album is PRANA (Shaman's Dream Music). Shaman's Dream talks about their musical mysticism.

There were a lot of great soundtracks released in the last year. Unfortunately, none of them were nominated for Academy Awards. We can't substitute for Oscar, but on this edition, Echoes listens to what Academy voters apparently didn't hear. That is, inventive soundtracks from previous Oscar winner Hans Zimmer (Black Hawk Down, The Pledge), Lisa Gerrard (Ali), and Yann Tierson (Amelie), and more. Great music isn't at the Oscars, but it's on Echoes.

Thursday 03/21/02
Echoes marks the coming of Spring with music for when day and night are equal, seeds go into the ground, and flowers spring to life. Celebrate the turning of the season with an Echoes soundscape of ambient designs and acoustic textures drawn from nature as crickets, birds, wind and ocean are drawn into a tapestry of music to praise the world around us.

Friday 03/22/02
David Darling is a master of melancholy and one of the principal architects of ambient chamber music. His latest album, CELLO BLUE (Hearts of Space) is a long-awaited follow-up to his acclaimed 1993 album, EIGHT-STRING RELIGION (Wind Over the Earth). It's another exploration of his deep chamber moods, with over-dubbed cellos, piano, synthesizers and ambiences. David talks about his chamber sound and about his own personal travails, including a stint in drug rehabilitation, that informed his cello blues.
