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 October 2014
In this archive presentation of At Water's Edge, we celebrate All Hallow's Eve. The veil between the worlds is thin, and the spirits of the dead roam the earth, giving us shivers and causing mischief where they may. Or gently touching loved ones to reassure them.
Unlike many Hallowe'en programs, this one is not ugly, or creepy, or terrifying. In fact, it's one of our most beautiful in terms of the music you'll hear, and the images we'll share on the video feed feature some stunning graveyard images by photographer Gwynneth Anderson.
