At Water’s Edge looks into unexplored corners of ambient electronica to uncover beauty in unexpected places. Music is everywhere–sometimes pretty, sometimes dark, always beautiful. awe.fm
Music is everywhere, in everything: in the hum of a city,
in the pulse of construction machinery or a heartbeat,
in footsteps, in laughter, in breath, in the shuffling of an impatient audience…
and, like John Cage’s “Four minutes and thirty-three seconds”,
all you have to do is sit and listen.
At Water's Edge, 27 September 2014: StoryTime
Ambient music shapes itself incredibly well to narratives in one form or another, whether implied or literal. This week's edition of At Water's Edge features both. We'll hear tracks that create a story in the listener's mind, and we'll hear tracks with actual narrated stories. So sit back with your tea or coffee or chocolate, and prepare to be regaled...
