Something Fishy

Posted on

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 written for the challenge nevertheless met the terms so precisely that we’re adding it to the album anyway. That is available via http://radiospiral.shop.

Mountain I

Posted on

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, Altus and more. And BONUS– we’ll also be playing a track from the brand new album by Mirror of Dreams, a new collaboration by our friends Har and Kris Tilbury.

Fate

Posted on

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.

Sky

Posted on

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.

Glass

Posted on

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, stained, still, and much more. We’ll hear the challenge track from Cloudwalk, and then turn to the RadioSpiral archives for works from ʞu¡0ɹʞS, John Koch-Northrup, Bing Satellites, Luna Firma, Max Corbacho, Robert Rich, Tone Ghost Ether, Tony Gerber, Numina, Emerald Adrift, EugeneKha, Michael Brückner, Thom Brennan, Pallid Mask, Jack Hertz, and Altus.

Lost Found

Posted on

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.

Snow

Posted on

In the North Carolina Highlands, also known as Asheville, forecasters are predicting snow this weekend. It stands to reason that “Snow” should be today’s topic on At Water’s Edge.

We’ll hear all kinds of snow music from all kinds of artists in the RadioSpiral library, including a collaboration yours truly did with Scott Lawlor some years ago called “Recollecting the Snow”.

Grab a blanket, stoke up the fire, heat up the cocoa, and join us for “Snow” from At Water’s Edge.

Night of the Soul

Posted on

This week’s edition of At Water’s Edge is another challenge episode. The requirement for the challenge was to create a winter track that did not rely on the usual audio tropes such as sleigh bells and so on.

The episode now takes on extra significance for personal reasons, and we are grateful for the outpouring of love and support.

We’ll hear new works for the challenge from Museleon, Carbonates On Mars, David Gerard, Jack Hertz, Flavigula, Mr. Spiral, Glenn Sogge, and Coaxeman; then we round out the show with library tracks from Numina, Tim Kays, and Lucette Bourdin.

The Long Dark

Posted on

Next week, the 29th of December, is the winter challenge episode (so send in your tracks!). We decided to make this week and next week a two-part series, with next week devoted to the challenge, and this week devoted to the solstice. So they are

“The Long Dark” 
“Night of the Soul”

This week’s episode features library tracks from a variety of artists, including Altus (Canada), Lucette Bourdin, Aovi Ontol, Brother Saturn, Christopher Short, Emerald Adrift, Jack Hertz and Wolfgang Gsell, and Cousin Silas and Wolfgang Gsell.
