Emerald Web


Emerald Web was a band that recorded, performed in Planetariums, composed soundtracks for Carl Sagan, and concert toured around the US, from 1978-1990. They were known for innovative synthesizer orchestration and created a unique blend of "electronic space music" and acoustic instruments. The band consisted of Kat Epple and Bob Stohl who composed on keyboards, digital orchestrations, flutes, and Lyricon. Their 11 albums include: "Dragon Wings and Wizard Tales", "Whispered Visions", "Sound Trek", "Valley of the Birds", "Aqua Regia", "Nocturne", "Lights of the Ivory Plains", "Traces of Time", "Catspaw", "Dreamspun", and "Manatee Dreams of Neptune". In addition to some self-published albums, the band was also signed with record labels Fortuna Records, Celestial Harmonies, Scarlet Records, and Passport Records. Their album, "Catspaw" was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1986. Other musicians who performed or recorded with Emerald Web include Barry Cleveland, Jon Serrie, Ben Carriel, and Steve Weiner.

Flautist, keyboardist, and vocalist Kat Epple performed, recorded, and co-composed the music of Emerald Web continues to release albums under her own name.

Keyboardist, Lyricon player, and flautist, Bob Stohl who performed, recorded and co-composed the music of Emerald Web passed away in 1989 at the age of 34. He was renowned for his innovative synthesizer orchestrations and for his Lyricon playing. The Lyricon is an unusual hybrid synthesizer/woodwind instrument that creates a variety of sounds on this album such as electric guitar, oboe and french horn.

Excerpt from a review of their "Manatee Dreams of Neptune" album:

The Web continues to blend organic, elemental timbres of flutes and other acoustic traditional instruments with the latest tools of musical technology. From their earliest album together, (1978) "Dragon Wings and Wizard Tales" to "Manatee Dreams of Neptune", they have always remained true to their vision of a beautiful simplicity, yet paradoxically their music exudes an alluring warmth and elegance through technology.

Robert Carlberg, music reviewer for Electronic Musician Magazine
