Matt Borghi & Michael Teager on Echoes

Hear Two Musicians Who Begin at Zero

These days in contemporary music, most musicians don’t leave much to chance when they play live. They either adhere to note-for-note recreations of their recorded work or they just have it all in a computer, hit play and have a perfect, if frozen performance.  Ambient guitarist Matt Borghi and saxophonist Michael Teager don’t work that way.  They create their music in the moment, improvising on mood and texture.  Borghi has been at the ambient thing for years with several recordings of barely-there ambient guitar out.  Teager comes from more of a jazz tradition. The two musicians talk about the genesis of their music from a lounge act and jam band into their free form excursions tonight on Echoesborghi-convocation

Jazz goes Ambient with Matt Borghi & Michael Teager on Echoes Tonight.

These days in contemporary music, most musicians don’t leave much to chance when they play live. They either adhere to note-for-note recreations of their recorded work or they just have it all in a computer, hit play and have a perfect, if frozen performance.  Ambient guitarist Matt Borghi and saxophonist Michael Teager don’t work that way.  They create their music in the moment, improvising on mood and texture.  Working on themes from their album, Convocation, we’re going to hear them do it live tonight on Echoes when Matt Borghi and Michael Teager head into space, untethered on Echoesborghi-convocation

Heavenly Choirs from Julianna Barwick on Echoes

Julianna Barwick & Scott Bell on Echoes

Julianna Barwick & Scott Bell on Echoes

Enya may not be putting out any new music but there are many artists who are taking that layered vocal sound in different directions.  One of them is Julianna Barwick.  The Louisiana born, Missouri raised and of course, Brooklyn based artist does something Enya doesn’t dare do, perform live, layering her voice in real time choirs.  Earlier this year Barwick released Nepenthe, an album of vocal music that seems to rise out of cemetery fog, a ghostly, amorphous sound ascending toward the heavens.  It’s a very rarefied released coming from the alt-rock heavy Dead Oceans label.

doc069.11183v4A very rarefied released coming from the alt-rock heavy Dead Oceans label, Nepenthe is ambient music for voice, with Barwick creating her vocal choirs in real time using looping and lots of delays and reverb.   It’s like Enya with the sweetness strained out through Joan La Barbara and looped in Frippertronics.     Joined by ambient guitarist Scott Bell, we’re going to hear Julianna Barwick do it live tonight on Echoes.
