Slightly Eccentric Journey

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, July 19, 2008

Michael Brook, the longtime electric guitarist, producer, instrument builder, inspired collaborator and composer joins us for this New Sounds program. He is responsible for the music behind the global warming documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," and contributed compositions to Gregory Colbert’s traveling exhibition, “Ashes and Snow,” and has scored the film "Who Killed the Electric Car," which premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. Inventor of the "infinite guitar," the Canadian ambient composer has done extensive work with Brian Eno, worked on many musical creations involving 4AD artists, contributed to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s “Mustt Mustt” and collaborated with him for “Night Song.” Brook’s latest solo release is called "RockPaperScissors," and he’ll present selections from this “slightly eccentric” travelogue, (along with tunes from a storied 25-year career of making music with folks like Daniel Lanois, Brian Ferry, The Pogues, and the Armenian duduk flute master Djivan Gasparayan.)
