Episode 021 – Erwilian & David Arkenstone premieres

first aired 08.15.23

This week on Convergence Zone, I’m premiering a new track by the legendary David Arkenstone; I’ve been listening to his music since picking up “Valley in the Clouds” on cassette in 1987.  Since then he’s pushed boundaries of new age, soundtrack, Celtic, ambient, and more — and he’s returning to the Pacific Northwest on tour starting next month.  I’ll have his brand-new single “The Icy Brook Finds Its Way”

I’m also premiering more local New Age, with another track off the upcoming live album by the ensemble Erwilian

Speaking of artists coming to the PNW, synthwave masters Small Black return with November dates in Vancouver BC, Seattle, and Portland, celebrating the 10th anniversary of “Limits of Desire”; I’ve got a banger from the new deluxe reissue, along with the latest by Vancouver’s Noble Oak

Pat Metheny also returns to Jazz Alley in November celebrating some of his early work, and I’ll also include great new neo-jazz from  Javier Nero and a recent piece by Makaya McCraven

Plenty of new ambient from LA duo Fog Net, along with Portland’s Daryl Groetsch, Patricia Wolf, and Seroli

And more surprises – join me Tuesday night at 10:30pm PDT on 90.7 KSER-FM, 89.9 KXIR-FM, and on the web at
