Mosque : Painting by Mumtaz Hussain (http://mumtazart.com)

Something Old, Something New

Ambient music has come to mean many things, and the definition is pretty open to interpretation. Some works are purely noise/glitch, using only electronics…and some are a fascinating use of traditional acoustic instruments and/or voices, and some are combinations of both.

On this edition of At Water’s Edge, we look at the creative ways that traditional sounds are incorporated into ambient music, featuring three different ambient artist projects: Red Planet Orchestra, Bryan Carrigan, and Tom Caufield.

The video broadcast features the paintings of Mumtaz Hussain, a Pakistani artist and filmmaker who has made his home in New York City for many years. His work combines traditional media and images of South Asian antiquity with a modern abstract approach, blending old and new, East and West.

Part two of a series, this week's edition of At Water's Edge has a unifying theme, that of some field recordings of Mojave desert ravens, along with some other starting materials. Each artist we'll hear over the next few weeks worked from the same base materials and created wildly different results.

Nevermore (Part 2)

The image of the raven has its roots in legends from all over the world. Harbinger of death, protector, spy, prophet, messenger; the raven embodies all of those things in our collective psyche. Part two of a new series from At Water’s Edge and Radhaus, we continue the “Nevermore” tracks with works by Parityflux, Michael […]

The program includes original words by Patricia Holland Moritz, and imagery by Ms. Moritz and others. It’s a somber topic, and even here there is beauty–though […]

25 October: BEYOND THE GHOSTS: For the weekend before Hallowe'en (25 October), we have a treat (no tricks!): music about ghosts and memories, and a curated selection of photography by Gwynneth Anderson.

Beyond the Ghosts

It’s the weekend before All Hallow’s Eve. The veil between the worlds is thin, and the spirits of the dead roam the earth, giving us shivers and causing mischief where they may. Or gently touching loved ones to reassure them. Unlike many Hallowe’en programs, this one is not ugly, or creepy, or terrifying. In fact, […]
