~ Giant Mushrooms, Erin Hill & Her Psychadelic Harp


The multi-talented multi-instrumentalist Erin Hill is currently focusing her formidable skills on an ambitious new project - a sci-fi video album.  Much like a collection of short stories, Erin describes the ten songs on her upcoming album Girl Inventor to be little 4 minute episodes in a Twilight Zone flavored series.  The 
psychedelic harp-driven tunes run the gamut from dreamy to rocking, all topped with Erin's etherial vocals and are also waiting to be realized in video form.  The first video for the track Giant Mushrooms is already making a splash online.

I'm still hooked on the Italian classical music from last week's show, so I offer a spill-over: Bellini, Marcello, Rossini and Italian harp, plus a moshing in of baroque, Prokofiev and Honegger.

Happy Birthday to Carlos Chavez, Mexican composer and conductor. We'll hear Three Pieces for Guitar from the album Guitar Masterpieces of the 20th Century.
