ECHOES OF SALVADOR DALI On the centenary of the icon of surrealism, we celebrate the
world of Salvador Dali in sound. Musicians from across the spectrum
have been influenced by Dali's dream-state drawings and serpentine
visual relationships. We create a soundscape that breaks through
the "Persistence of Memory," featuring musicians with
"Heads Full of Clouds" who have traversed the "Phantasmagoria"
of Salvador Dali.
AIR: RETRO-FUTURIST SEX AND SOUND Air is the innovative French band who came to renown in 1998
with their album MOON SAFARI. They recently released their third
full-length CD, TALKIE WALKIE (Astralwerks), which explores themes
of love and moods of retro-futurism. We talk with Nicholas Godin
and Jean-Benoit Dunckel about their nostalgic look at love and
creating scores for films like Lost in Translation.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH R. CARLOS NAKAI Celebrated Native American flutist R. Carlos Nakai takes a
seat in the Echoes Living Room, pulls out his flute and weaves
tales of the desert southwest and Colorado mountains. He talks
about his new CD of flute solos, SANCTUARY (Canyon) and reflects
on the evolution of Native American music and the Native flute.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH THE CALIFORNIA GUITAR TRIO Imagine three virtuoso guitarists playing as if they were
one musician, but with 18 strings. That's the California Guitar
Trio, three musicians who studied with King Crimson guitarist
Robert Fripp and played in his League of Crafty Guitarists, a
20 piece guitar orchestra, before embarking on their own path
13 years ago. They've just released a compilation CD, THE FIRST
DECADE, celebrating 10 years of recording. The trio comes into
the Echoes Living Room to play a pair of new songs, an old Echoes
favorite and a startling rendition of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."
