Mixing Bowl

All about the remix on this edition of At Water’s Edge: artists who have remixed each other’s works, adding their own unique voice to an already excellent track.


The video archive of today’s program, featuring paintings by Ade Hodges, is available here.

Sound of Silas cover artYou’ve heard the news about the latest release from We are all ghosts? Cousin Silas (Music)‘s grand Sound of Silas? Well, one of the nifty things that they’re doing is offering bonus tracks to those folks who purchase the CD (and there are only a few left!). Those tracks have a unique spin: they’re remixes by other great ambient artists of Cousin’s work, and ONLY available if you buy the CD… or listen to this show. 😉

PrintIn addition, Christopher Alvarado is releasing a remix project of his recent (and excellent) Creation by Inertia. This latest release (coming soon!) is called Modified by Inertia, and we’re taking a slightly different approach. Instead of playing first one album and then the other, we’re playing the original track and its remix one after the other–so the two albums are laced together.

To fill out the show (but by no means an afterthought), we have two remix tracks in the opposite direction: Cousin Silas remixes of tracks by Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt, plus a remix by Apta of an original track by Northcape.

The Loneliness of the Chameleon Cousin Silas & Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt

Notes from the author of “The Loneliness of the Chameleon” (story):

This track means a lot to me. It was first made as a clip for literary agents and networkers in the English speaking  world, for the novel (about actual true crime in Berlin) is still published in German language only.

A friend of mine, American author and teacher Michael Kroetch, also living in Berlin, translated, edited, intonated and „filmed“ what he considered as the main essence of my book – which lays in this chapter.

That´s why I send you attached the link to my blog. So you can see:

a) the videoclip, which was the basis of Sean D. Cooper´s and Cousin Sila´s wonderful work on it

b) a summary of my book in English (whose main caracter is a called Rebekka too) and

c) The English chapter which the whole clip – then track – is based on (once on my blog you just click on: The extract shown in the trailer the chameleon (3))


While this will be broadcasted on saturday I will have a public reading of „The Loneliness of the Chameleon“-book on a reading tour through Germany. I feel blessed about this time-wise coincidence.

Also, a new feature this week on the Livestream video feed: we will begin curating art works in future shows. This week we feature the paintings of our friend Ade Hodges.

He uses acrylic paint on canvas and incorporate bits of fabric, beer bottle caps and other flotsam (which is why we think his work is good with a “remix” program!). His style is surreal fantasy involving abstraction with a nod toward 1950s poster art. Ade loves science fiction and fantasy and his images are suggestions of alien planets and the like. His works have adorned the covers of several ambient albums recently, which he owes to Cousin Silas, an old friend who introduced him to the community.
