Echo Us to set to play Jimmy Mak’s and more- release video mini-documentary about new album, 2:12, À Priori Memoriaé.
2013 Independent Music award-winners Echo Us will play two more Portland area shows to start off 2014- The first being Jan. 28th at Jimmy Mak’s opening for Mel Brown’s Septet. The show is part of Jimmy’s “Partner’s In Jazz” series and brings together an extra-eclectic night of Echo Us’ pop / classical fusion with jazz.
Echo Us’ upcoming album, 2:12, À Priori Memoriaé is on its way in 2014, and a mini-documentary on the recording of the new album is just released. A video for the single “Nightlight” also recently appeared, featuring vocalists Ethan and Henta morphing their interlocking duets amidst a background of concert harp, strings and oboe. Ethan emphasizes what a natural process the album was to make, and how much it was a step outside from the successful formulae already put it place on the previous album Tomorrow Will Tell The Story.
À Priori Memoriaé firmly fuses Echo Us’ ambient music core with live classical musicians. “It was a very organic process” says Ethan. “The entire recording sounds like a live performance. It is quite possibly the most innovative work in the Echo Us catalog, and was put together in such a way as to make one feel a continuous stream of images and emotion, based off of only a few melodic fragments- In that way, it’s a classical composition, contrapuntal, with many melodic inversions and alterations creating its flow. The album barely features anything resembling a drum kit, and that was intentional”.
The new album features Raelyn Olson (Concert Harp), Chris Smith (Flute), Christina Fitzgerald (Oboe), and as mentioned, the vocals of GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Henta.
Echo Us will announce release plans for the new album in due time, and continue their acoustic performances.
