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.

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.

No results.

At Water's Edge, 9 May 2015: StillStream's Tenth

Stillstream is ten years old this year, and we're celebrating by honoring the artistic efforts of the guy who made it all possible: Palancar (aka Darrell Burgan), who founded the station and managed to persuade a bunch of ambient artists that this would be a good thing.

Ten years later, it still is.

So this week, we'll be hearing music by Palancar, as well as music from the netlabel he founded, earthMANTRA (
