Oak's Rose. The story behind Ethan's 3rd LP.

program date: 
Sun, 03/15/2009

From a PICA Press Release...  Oaks is acclaimed ambient electronic experimentalist Ethan Rose’s third full-length, following on the 2006 release Ceiling Songs and the 2007 release, Spinning Pieces. Ethan’s music was also featured in Gus Van Sant’s latest film, Paranoid Park. Ethan explains Oaks as follows: “Over the past year I’ve been coming out to the Oaks Park Roller Rink to play and record the Wurlitzer Theater Organ that is located there. The organ dates from the 1920s and was originally housed in the Broadway Theater in downtown Portland where it was used to accompany silent films. It is currently played and maintained by Keith Fortune who has been involved with the organ and the rink for the past fifteen years. I’ve had the privilege of assisting Keith with organ repairs, which has deepened my appreciation of the instrument. Musically speaking, my primary interest with this organ has been to bring its antiquated sounds into a modern context, essentially treating it with the same sense of sonic reinterpretation that I have brought to my previous works.”

Busy Week

It was a busy week for sure.  Not only did I host the Bread and Roses show, featuring Della Rae of DonorsResource.org and Janna Mock-Lopez of Goodness Magazine, which was such a treat to pull together, but I also came back the next day to create Saturday's, An Evening of Afrotainment

I should probably take a step back as my week started on Sunday, March 8 at 11am until 7pm while in radio training with Marilynn.  She provided some good tips that I was able to apply in preparation and while on air...I love "this moment of silience was brought to you by ________" fill in the blank that I was able to use during the Friday night interviews.  When the conversation begins to flow like it did I start talking before I've completed the question in my head and I end up having a lapse or what some would call a senior moment, and I'm not a senior.  The other technique I picked up on was shortening my statements, yah right, that will take some time as I'm a bit verbose by nature.  This is one I have to work on when I'm on the Saturday night show especially when back announcing...in due time...
