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, 25 July 2015: Water's Edge
When we first planned the At Water's Edge radio program, over three years ago, we called it "At Water's Edge" and the name came fairly easily.
The underlying idea in the name was that (in addition to the fact that the studio was right next to a lake) the line between shore and sea is a magical place. It's where journeys begin or end, and whether they're inner journeys or worldly travels, they mark a major transition, a transformation--for it is impossible to travel any significant distance without being changed by the things one sees and experiences along the way.
Today's program explores those shores: inner, outer; remembered, forgotten; terrestrial or alien. Let the journey begin.
