Check out the new re-issue of “Dragon Wings and Wizard Tales” by Emerald Web, on Finders Keepers Records!
This special cassette edition of Emerald Web’s Dragon Wings and Wizard Tales (1979) finally presents the debut LP by Miami based husband and wife synth enthusiasts on the choice format that came to represent the DIY new age electronic movement in the following decade. Licensed and mastered with the full co-operation from the duos own home run Stargate Records, this rare LP is the label’s only release that didn’t come out on the cassette format until now - presenting new fans with the perfect introduction to the group and genre and completing the full cassetteography for the growing number of private issue new age tape collectors currently lurking in eBay’s darkest corners.
An early seminal precursor to 1980s electronic new-age/minimal synth/relaxation music boom and a welcome feminine take on the genre (critically epitomised shortly after by the likes of Suzanne Ciani) Dragon Wings and Wizard Tales hear the multi-instrumentalist duo combine a broad range of modular synths (as found in similar formation to ambient krautrock records by Klaus Schulze) and the use of the Lyricon wind synth (as favoured by Swiss electronic pioneer Bruno Spoerri).
This LP also features seldom heard lead vocals from Kat Epple, an element in their music which later disappeared in favour of non-lingustic spiritual soundscapes and universal tantric electronics. As part of an ongoing relationship with Kat Epple, and in honour of Bob’s untimely death in 1990, this limited cassette will proceed an in-depth anthology of the duo’s extensive production work, new to Finders Keepers in the imminent future.

How local musicians are weathering the tough financial storm
by Dan Prowse Whicker
Famous psychologist Abraham Maslow once said, “A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.” Anyone with a strong creative side can relate to that sentiment, as can those who are close to someone with a creative spirit. There is a force deep inside of every artist that compels them to pursue their craft, to share it with the world in some way no matter what their circumstances. Indeed, for the true artist, the hardest of times cannot stop the flow of creativity. Rather, the drive often becomes stronger in the face of adversity.
In Southwest Florida, there is a group of artists that understands this all too well—our local musicians. They entertain us through the good times, when business is booming, people are happy, and money is flowing through the local economy. They are also there for us when times are tough, when things are slow, people need relief, and money is tight.
The business side of music is something that Southwest Florida musician Kat Epple also knows very well. Like Heck, she’s managed to continue with her music full-time despite a tough economy, but she credits her business and marketing skills with keeping her going.
For the past twenty years, Epple has witnessed a lot of change in the local music scene, both good and bad. “About three years ago,” she says, “it seemed like everything just completely dropped.” Art galleries, where Epple would often perform world flute music at openings, lacked budgets for live music, and her musician friends who entertained in clubs went from performing five nights a week to two nights if they were lucky. “I think that there was a lot of panic from club owners and gallery owners, thinking, ‘Oh my God, what are we going to do?’” recalls Epple.
During those years, many of her friends had to seek day jobs to make ends meet. That might not seem so bad to the rest of us, but according to Epple, what it means for musicians is less rehearsal time, less time for networking to find venues, and less time to market themselves musically.
What helped Epple get through some lean years was her differentiation. Since she prides herself on performing only original music, she attracts a different audience and different venues. Art events, concerts, and other special events are her outlets, instead of restaurants and clubs. She also does a lot of work in film scoring and soundtracks, which, despite becoming a little harder to find during the past three years, has kept her employed and able to stay in music full-time.
Epple has found that business savvy must be combined with musical talent if a musician wants to perform full-time. Likewise, fans and venues should understand that their support really can make or break a musician. “They are a business,” she says. “If you don’t support them, they will have to go get a different kind of job, and they may decide to never try it again. It is so much work to make a living as a musician.”
With families, bills, and the usual concerns of life, our local musicians are really just regular people who have a passion for their music and for sharing it with others. Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that the person under the colored lights and behind the microphone has the same daily struggles as everyone else. They seem happy and are uniquely talented; we want them to be above any problems so that they can help us to escape ours. Yet, as most of them will tell you, they need us as much as we need them.

The Power of Music
By Mike James
When others would sit on their hands and watch the world go to pot, Kat Epple picks up her flute and plays—and plays.
The Ft. Myers woman, an internationally known recording artist, will be coming to The Renaissance Academy at Florida Gulf Coast University in Punta Gorda Tuesday, March 8 to share her love of music. FGCU is located at 117 Herald Court in downtown Punta Gorda.
“I really enjoy talking about music and bringing new forms of music to people, helping them to see and feel music in a brand new way” she said, “I try to bring more music into their world and more appreciation of music’s power to heal, relax, and help enjoy life in general.
During her talk at FGCU, which will take place from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. March 8, Epple will talk about her collection of flutes, play music from several of her 23 albums, and talk about the influence of music in people’s lives.
John Steinbeck wrote that humans share a common soul, a tenet to which Epple subscribes.
“Often when we listen to the radio or the tunes in our CD collection we miss out on other music,” she said. “Music can be a way of opening up people to new ideas.”
Epple knows of what she speaks. Her latest project is collaboration with heavy metal guitarist Devin Townsend, who grew up listening to Epple’s haunting, evocative flute music. She speaks of her travels to other lands where, she says, she starts out as a “blonde American woman but, as I play, I become an honored guest and a member of the village.”
Epple even talks to the animals, ala Dr. Doolittle. She has played for dolphins and elephants, and remarked on how their appreciation often mirrors the reception from humans.
Of a group of dolphins, for example, she said that “the babies would listen for a while, swim away and come back, which the juveniles didn’t stick around—sort of like our demographics.” She recalls playing for an elephant at the Oakland, California zoo, and how the creature twirled her trunk in lazy arabesques while swaying with her front legs.
The busy flutist will continue her benefit work for the environment March 19, 2011 at the Bonita Springs Riverside Park Bandshell during a fundraiser for Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed Land Trust, one of many contributions she makes.
She is an Emmy Award-winning performer and composer who has written music for television shows as varied as those of National Geographic or the soaps.
“I really love that, making the music for all of those soap operas,” she said. “Almost any mood or theme will come up in the soaps. I welcome the challenge of stepping outside my musical comfort zone to create music I otherwise would not do”
The Renaissance Academy is committed to providing diverse learning opportunities in Charlotte County.
