Banco de Gaia fired one of the first shots of ethno-techno sounds into the previously electronic dominated rave culture of the early 1990s. Since then, he’s built a body of work by sampling the body’s of work from other musicians as well as sounds from the world. There was always an element of musique concrète to Banco de Gaias’s approach and now, Toby Marks, the man behind Banco de Gaia, actually has a Masters Degree in electro-acoustic music. But Marks has always been a master of sound. I talked to him about his new CD, Apollo and the art of sound bending in the Echoes Podcast.
