Crickets

Posted on

This edition of The Edges of Dreaming is the next challenge episode: “Crickets”. Artists were to create tracks either using actual cricket sounds, manufactured sounds, or things that reminded them of crickets. Three artists responded with tracks as wildly different as one could imagine.

The rest of the episode is dedicated to twilight, the best time to hear crickets in warmer weather. We’ll hear tracks from Robert Carty, Bing Satellites, Robert Rich, Altus, Loren Nerell, Christopher Short, Phillip Wilkerson, Conni St. Pierre, Paul Vnuk Jr., Daniel Robert Lahey, and C. Reider.

Cathedral

Posted on

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 little surprise to anyone that some of France’s wealthiest families leapt to pledge fabulous amounts of money toward the cathedral’s restoration.

And yet.

And yet.

How far could that money go to save the sanctuaries and cathedrals given to us by our planet? Or to level out the inequities generated by the accumulation of such vast sums to begin with? To feed the bodies — the human temples — of people who are starving every day?

Today’s episode is dedicated to Notre Dame and its rescuers, and to the other cathedrals, temples, and sanctuaries, human-made and nature-made, that one finds on this beautiful planet.

Return to Berlin

Posted on

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 it, as well as tracks from Sequential Dreams, Phrozenlight, Frore & Shane Morris, Jim Ottaway, Christian Fiesel, Fabio Keiner, Eric “The” Taylor, Cloudwalk, and Tim Kays.

Several of the tracks are from Legacy and Evolution, the tribute compilation we released a few years ago to commemorate the passing of Edgar Froese in 2015.

Drift

Posted on

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 been previously released, and because we had so much music last week, we chose only new tracks written specifically for the challenge). It was so beautiful, and was just the right thing to start off the new direction of the show.
