Cathedral

4/20/2019

This week in the news — and it was a very busy week — Notre Dame Cathedral was severely damaged by fire. It was saved from total destruction by the many fire crew members who, at great risk to life and limb, managed to save the two towers of the cathedral, and most of the artworks and artifacts kept there. Notre Dame is one of the great architectural achievements humankind has ever devised. The artworks contained in it count among some of the finest in Western civilization. It will come as...

Return to Berlin

4/13/2019
More
Rituals, journeys, and the circle of life on today’s edition of The Edges of Dreaming, with another foray into the Berlin-Schule and its heirs. A few weeks ago, Sequentia Legenda released an album that has been a dream of his for quite literally decades. A longtime devotee of this style of music, Laurent Schieber had spent years collecting the technology and expertise to pay homage to the style in his own unique fashion. Over There is the breathtaking result. We’ll feature a long-player from...

Drift

More
Welcome to the first episode of an old show. Last week we announced that At Water’s Edge was changing its name, and so today we present the first episode of The Edges of Dreaming, with “Drift”. We’ll hear tracks today from a variety of RadioSpiral artists, digging into the archives for music about drifting and floating, and beginning with a track that had been offered up for last week’s dreamscape challenge, “Driftglass”, but we had to bump (Pallid Mask sent us this beautiful track; it had...

The Edges of Dreaming

We have left the water’s edge and now drift on the edges of dreaming. Dreams can be beautiful, terrifying, dark, sad, angry, nightmarish, sweet. We explore some of those dreams on this episode. Today’s episode marks a number of milestones: The seventh anniversary of At Water’s Edge Your host’s birthday (we won’t say which one) The most epic response to a challenge that we have ever received The end of At Water’s Edge, but the beginning of The Edges of Dreaming The broadcast premiere of Land...

Mountain III

3/16/2019
More
Spring is coming to Appalachia, and Mr. Copland had the right of it: there is nothing like it in the world. This is home. I’d forgotten how much I miss springs like this — the trees are in flower, the daffodowndillies are poking up their cheerful little heads, and the world is waking up… We celebrate with the final installment of the “Mountains” series, as today we ascend to mystic heights with another blend of short and long form tracks. … Get the full episode...Mountain III

Mountain II

More
A few weeks ago, I put out a request for mountain tracks for At Water’s Edge. I thought I’d do “a show” to celebrate our new home in the mountains of western North Carolina. So many artists responded with tracks that it turned into a three part series. The first one aired on 16 February (and the podcast is here), and now after a short delay we bring you the second of the series, and the third comes around next week. On today’s edition of At Water’s Edge, we’ll hear from Tony Gerber, George L...

Something Fishy

3/2/2019
More
This edition of At Water’s Edge brings us another challenge episode, and it’s a good one! “Fish” was the challenge wherein artists were to create a track using an unusual scale (you know, fish? Scales?), and make it about being underwater. The results were gorgeous and as usual, as varied as the contributors. Artists include George L. Smyth, Museleon, Carbonates on Mars, Skoddie, Mr. Spiral, playman54, and Joe McMahon. In an unusual twist, one of the tracks that was *not* specifically...

Mountain I

More
Last week, I put out a request on Facebook for tracks about mountains. So many artists responded that the original idea became a three part series. The reason for the request is that I wanted to get your help celebrating the move to our forever home in the mountains. So we get to celebrate for weeks with tracks from artists all over the world. Listen in this episode for tracks by such diverse artists as Antara Annemarie Borg, Cousin Silas, Thom Brennan, The Lovely Moon, Skoddie, Numina,...

Fate

Forrest Fang released a gorgeous album a couple of weeks ago (OK, really, which of his albums aren't gorgeous?). We'll feature a track from The Fata Morgana Dream, and around it other works from the RadioSpiral library contemplating fate, destiny, and various paths we might take through the cosmos. We'll hear from Max Corbacho, Grégoire Lourme, Pas de la Dame Sauvage, Alien Nature and Michael Brückner, Alpha Wave Movement, Team Metlay, Dan Pound, Robert Carty, and Jarguna. … Get the full...

Sky

On this edition of At Water's Edge, we look to the skies. Inspired by a track sent to us by The Ambient Visitor that carries us over from last week's Glass challenge, we travel "Through Clear Skies" into tangerine skies, open skies, dark skies, winter skies and more. … Get the full episode...Sky

Glass

1/26/2019
More
With only a single entry for this week's "Harmonium" challenge, we draw heavily on the RadioSpiral library this week for a program inspired by glass in many states. For the “Harmonium” challenge, artists were to take glass sounds (struck, rung, sung, blown, etc.) and make music of the sounds. We only received one brief entry (thank you, Cloudwalk!), but the topic inspired a fascinating show anyway. We’ll listen to artists’ interpretations of glass in various states — shattered, smooth,...

Lost Found

On this edition of At Water’s Edge, we are lost, we wander, and we are found. The RadioSpiral library is full of wonderful musical journeys from all kinds of artists creating all kinds of sounds. Today we wander through its towers and stacks, and get a little lost along the way, stopping to say hello to Silvercord, EugeneKha, Sequential Dreams, ontol, Altus, Cousin Silas, Brother Saturn, Erik Wøllo and Byron Metcalf, Darren Harper, Incandescent Void, Bing Satellites, and Gregory Bond. … Get...
