ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Ethno-Wave love child of collaborators Frank Harris & Maria Marquez, Echoes compiles
a collection of mid 80’s to early 90’s material tracking two musical dreamers. Avante-
pop flourishes married to the heart strings of an imagined synthetic Amazon. Fascinated by the rapidly emerging midi electronics of the early ‘80’s, Frank was immersed in sound work for companies such as IBM and producing the likes of Diamanda Galás around the time he began collaborating with Maria.
Envisioning a tropical Sade, the music they created more often veers towards the leftfield, revelling in the embrace of Maria’s Venezuelan roots & folklore visions in combination with the exploration of Frank’s custom Synclavier synth station (the first keyboard to incorporate 16bit sampling).
Compiled here, songs such as ‘Canto Del Pílon’ and ‘Tonada de Ordeño’ resonate with a charged future/primitive electricity that mainline Maria’s song-to-a-siren vocals with Frank’s lush sonic alchemy. On ‘Echoes’ the voice becomes instrument, found sound transforms to melody, the fragile meets the sublime, old is married to new. Somehow this music has become timeless and many say, even more relevant today.
