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, 10 October 2015: There Is Beauty In Change
Recently a meme went around Facebook, a gorgeous photo of autumn leaves, with the text "Autumn is nature's way of reminding us that there is beauty in letting go of dead things."
And so there is. There is beauty in the making room in our souls for new things, in the restorative nature of lying fallow for a time, in the harvest of the bright season's fruits, and in preparing for the introspection of winter.
"There is beauty in change and the anticipation of what is to come." Bryan Carrigan, whose new work "Fall Into Winter" is featured on today's program, wrote that while we were preparing this episode.
We'll also hear Ishq's recent release "Autumn Light" along with a Stillstream favorite, Altus (Canada)'s "Autumn Breeze".
