Preston Reed wasn't trying to make a statement on his new album, HANDWRITTEN NOTES (Outerbridge), but he did. Preston is an under-rated marvel of the acoustic guitar. His name used to be mentioned in the same breath as Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges and judging from this tour de force solo album, it still should be. Reed uses many of the same two-handed techniques employed by Hedges, tapping his strings and banging on his instrument. He works a delirious combination of deft polyrhythms and melodic counterpoint that spins your head, yet, there's also a rustic folk edge to his playing that keeps it earthy. Preston comes to Echoes to talk about his twenty year career and continuing evolution.

Axiom of Choice is headed up by two Iranian musicians, singer Mamek Khadem and guitarist Loga Ramin Torkian. On their second album, NIYA YESH (Narada World) they orchestrate a sensual and mystical sound that mixes Torkian's quarter-tone flamenco/Persian guitar style with ambiences from India, percussion from the Middle East and the darkly alluring voice of Khadem. Singing in Farsi and with wordless vocals, her voice laces many of these songs with a dark mystery. In their Los Angeles store, surrounded by artifacts and antiques from the Middle East and Asia, they talk about their music.

Artists have been reinventing classical music in cross-over formulas for most of the second half of the 20th century, from the Swingle Singers jazz take on Baroque counterpoint to Apollo 100's hit adaptation of Bach in 1972. San Francisco Bay area producer Dawn Atkinson has been adapting the classics to modern instrumentalists for Windham Hill and Imaginary Road records for the last few years with albums including THE IMPRESSIONISTS and A DIFFERENT MOZART. Her latest foray is A DIFFERENT PRELUDE (DECCA), updates of classical preludes from Bach to Gershwin. Dawn talks about classical cross-over along with A DIFFERENT PRELUDE contributors Clara Ponty and Patrick O'Hearn.

Forrest Fang is classically trained on violin, but his music has always been a collage. His Richmond California home is stuffed with odd instruments from around the world made of animal horns, bones, skin, gourds, and metal. He works them into abstract designs generated on computer and synthesizers. Lately he's been working with odd American folk instruments, integrating them with computer-generated fractal patterns. We visit Forrest Fang's sound museum and talk about his recent album, GONGLAND (Projekt).
