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, 28 November 2015: The Calm Before the Storm

Changes are afoot. The world is shaking out of control under political, economic, and climate pressures. Here in the U.S., there are many of these storms brewing as we ready ourselves for a year of election frenzy, which is already beyond insane.

Add to that the coming month of *buying* frenzy before Christmas, and you have a relentlessly frenetic and panicked landscape.

So today's music is all about calm. Let the calm take over for a while. Take a breath...
