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.
From Fire to Ice
is easy to imagine why myths and legends cast autumn and spring as celestial battles between good and evil, night and day, light and dark, fire and ice. The transition brings changes in the light we see, the length of our days, the temperature of the air, and in autumn we go from the fire of brilliant foliage to the still, cold ice of winter.
Today's program celebrates the transition of autumn into winter and day into night with three new releases: AUTUMN RED from The Color of Sleep--another great music project from our friend Kuutana (thecolorofsleep.bandcamp.com/album/autumnred), Joe Frawley's brand new THE NIGHT PARADE (joefrawley.bandcamp.com/album/the-night-parade) and Robert Scott Thompson's latest, PALE BLUE DOT (anodizesound.bandcamp.com/album/pale-blue-dot).
