Dare

Posted on

The second of a two part series, this week we focus on various kinds of courage: daring to dream, daring to look into the future, daring to leap, daring to love.

Last week we heard music about Truth and perception, and observed that telling the truth can sometimes make one vulnerable. So truth is, in fact, a kind of dare.

We’ll hear music by mindSpiral, Different Skies ensembles from a couple of different years, Ben Cox, Emerald Adrift, Altus, Sequential Dreams, John DuVal, Glenn Sogge, SiJ and Paul Minesweeper, Syndromeda, usr/sbin, and Ricky Kej with the Soweto Gospel Choir and a ton of other great musicians from the album Shanti Samsara.

Truth

Posted on

Truth is stranger than fiction.

Life imitates art.

What is truth?

The world around us is increasingly bizarre, where the truth as it’s presented must be questioned every minute of every day. But the truth (see what I did there?) is that humans have been fiddling with truth as long as we’ve been around. We bend it to suit our needs, whether to ourselves or to the people around us, and even the most honest among us has done it. Telling the truth about ourselves makes us vulnerable, and others take advantage, so we learn to hide it. We obscure our reality in hopes of turning our path to a positive outcome.

On today’s edition of At Water’s Edge, we explore truth and untruth and the bending that happens in between. It’s an interesting, varied ride. We’ll hear from Audio Gourmet, Night Note, Kuutana, Bing Satellites, Empty Vessel, grüm~pé, Ozone Player, Kit Watkins, Lucette Bourdin, Daniel Robert Lahey, Max Corbacho, and December Nightskies.

“Truth” is part of a two-part series; next week is “Dare”. Do you?
