Relaxing with Machinery

Berlin school electronic music--some ambient, some... not so much--on this edition of At Water's Edge, and featuring photography of Berlin resident Silva Capitana.

Wir sind alle Berliner

The Berlin-schule (Berlin school) is a style rather than a place (although most of its early practitioners were in West Berlin). Begun in the 1970s, it encompassed a particular style of electronic music, and some of the innovative early records formed the basis of ambient music. Klaus Schultze, Tangerine Dream: you know many of the names. Video […]

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.

Nevermore (Part 2)

Part two of a new series from At Water’s Edge and Radhaus, we continue the “Nevermore” tracks with works by Parityflux, Michael […]
