Gareth Jones is a classically trained guitarist and former dancer. The Louisville, Kentucky based musician released an album called CLASSICAL TRANCE that merges his acoustic guitar classical techniques with minimalist structures and hypnotic grooves. We talk with Gareth about his early career as a ballet dancer, his chrysalis state as a rocker and his rebirth as an ambient classical guitarist.

In 1972, a mysterious album came out on Island Records with no tunes or melodies, just a shimmering Aurora Borealis of sound, diaphanous and reverberant, like windows opening up into an altered state of consciousness. The album was TIBETAN BELLS and the musicians were Henry Wolff and Nancy Hennings playing ancient Tibetan ceremonial instruments. They made several more recordings and now, that first album has come out on CD for the first time. In New York, where they now live, we take a journey with Henry Wolff into a world of vibration.

Free System Projekt is a Dutch synthesizer trio following the circuitry laid down by Tangerine Dream in the 1970s. On albums like POINTLESS REMINDER (Quantum) they use modern synthesizers modeled on old-style analog instruments like the Moog synthesizer, improvising spacescapes around throbbing rhythms, ethereal Mellotron atmospheres and modal melodies. Sitting on the Echoes Living Room floor, surrounded by wires, computers and keyboards, Free System Projekt lifts us into the stratosphere in this live performance.

Friday 11/02/01
"Ambient" is an adjective we toss around a lot on Echoes, but we've never applied it to the tuba until Tom Heasley's album, WHERE THE EARTH MEETS THE SKY (Hypnos). Heasley, who lives in Palo Alto, Ca, uses extensive electronic processing to turn his tuba into a pod of whales and a galactic transport ship in slow motion, languid soundscapes. It often sounds electronic, but every sound begins on the tuba. Heasley puffs up and blows when he demonstrates his techniques on Echoes.
