Borghi & Teager on this week’s ‘Hearts of Space’!

This is another big week for Matt Borghi & yours truly, as we’re featured on this week’s transmission of Hearts of Space. The episode, titled “SAXOPHONIC,” focuses on the use of saxophone in ambient music. We’re truly humbled for a few reasons:

1. Our music has been included in the HOS roster. Between that, Echoes, and Star’s End, we’ve achieved the holy trinity of ambient music programs in the last 6 months, and we’re very thrilled! Who knew we’d be here after releasing Convocation a little over a year ago…
2. We’re the only artists with multiple tracks on “SAXOPHONIC.” That was definitely unexpected.
3. We’re in truly GREAT company for this episode, including ECM heavyweights John Surman and the one and only Jan Garbarek. Considering Matt’s and my special affection for ECM, that’s a feather in our cap. I never thought I’d see my name next to Garbarek’s on a playlist…
