“Gaia. Mother. Earth.” – Musical Nature – Forgotten Textures (1998)

Released as a cassette (remember those?) back in 1998, the collection Forgotten Textures from Musical Nature include heavily manipulated drum loops over haunting drones and noise. “gaia.mother.earth” is a remarkable track that could easily be, as one online reviewer described it, “…the soundtrack for a journey to the center of the third rock.” This track embodies the idea that we’ve been exploring on “At Water’s Edge” that music is all around us, and doesn’t always have to be “pretty” to be “beautiful”.
