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, 13 June 2015: Vir Unis

Did you know that Vir Unis, also known as John Strate-Hootman, is not only a fantastic ambient musician, but also an incredibly talented painter as well? It's true!

So this week, we feature both the art and the music, both as a soloist and collaborative musician.
