In her Marin County home overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Mount Tamalpais, Suzanne Ciani performs live on Echoes. She started out as an avant-garde electronic composer, came to renown for commercial jingles and sound effects, and helped launch New Age music. Now Suzanne concentrates on her piano music, releasing PIANISSIMO III (Seventh Wave) her third album of unaccompanied solos. We captured Suzanne on a glorious Northern California day, seated at her grand piano, playing music born in the view right outside her windows.

Laurie Anderson is currently out on tour with her new performance work, "Happiness" and a new album, LIVE IN NEW YORK (Nonesuch). We return to our feature with Anderson from the summer of 2001. At that time, Laurie Anderson was contemplating the designs of her latest studio album, LIFE ON A STRING (Nonesuch). In Laurie Anderson's Manhattan studio, she tells the stories of her life in New York, pre- 9/11.

Darshan Ambient is the recording persona of Oakland-based musician Michael Allison. He began as a rock and roll bassist, playing in groups that included former Labelle singer Nona Hendryx. But he switched several years ago into more ambient designs, inspired by his studies in yoga and other spiritual disciplines. He's released nearly a dozen albums, most of them on Michael Allison talks about the sonic designs of Darshan Ambient.

Friday 05/24/02
A self-described "jazz drummer gone AWOL," Alex Cline takes us into a world of rhythm and Zen in his Los Angeles percussion room. A longtime fixture on Southern California's noisy avant-garde jazz scene, Cline explores a more contemplative sound on his own recordings, including his latest, THE CONSTANT FLAME (Cryptogramophone). The liquid melodies of violin, guitar and voice overlay his restrained rhythms to create a sound somewhere between chamber jazz and Japanese court music. We take a tour through Cline's massive percussion arsenal, and talk with him about the zen of improvised music.
