Edges of Solstice

Posted on

This edition of Edges of Dreaming celebrates the Winter Solstice. It is the darkest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Some of us look inward (those that are not caught up in the holiday shopping frenzy), sip soup and warm drinks, delight in home arts and each other’s company, and other such winter activities. For some, it is a dark night of the soul as well, being afflicted by the missing sun, affected by loneliness, reminded of friends and family who have crossed the rainbow bridge…

And yet.

And yet, starting tomorrow, the sun begins to return to us, so it is also a time of hope and looking forward.

The first part of the program brings us tracks that were suggested or offered by artists as being relevant to the topic, from previous releases.

Most of this episode is devoted to the most recent challenge, where artists were to create tracks that felt to them like darkest winter. There were no other constraints. The results, as usual, are both varied and beautiful. Enjoy!

As usual, the challenge tracks are offered as an album on our Bandcamp shop: http://radiospiral.shop.

Introducing…

Posted on

In last week’s episode of The Edges of Dreaming, we played new releases by existing artists. Mistakenly programming a couple of older tracks by an artist new to the station gave me the idea to present all new artists this week. These folks have been doing their thing for a while, but have become part of the RadioSpiral family in the past few months.

So we’re pleased to present tracks by Off Land, Spaghetti Eastern Music, Ocean In a Bottle, Sheleah Nahshon, Kelly Woodrow, Sonic Bodhi, Schneefels, and Hendu’s Groove.

At the end of the episode yours truly plays a live set. Enjoy!
