Memory Flashes for Jon Hassell
Memory Flashes is a radio tribute to the father of fourth world music. This program features heartfelt remembrances of Hassell from Brian Eno, Terry Riley, La Monte Young and many other friends, family members, collaborators, and admirers.
Jon Hassell pushed beyond the boundaries to change the way we experience sound. As the originator of Fourth World music, the trumpet player and composer conjured shapeshifting sonic forms that floated at the edge of consciousness. His nuanced, dreamlike landscapes were sacred spaces where sensuality reigned supreme and the ear served as a path to the beating heart.
