As the summer wanes and autumn approaches, the colors of the sky and the landscape around us change, becoming warm and golden. The harvest will be coming in soon, but for now we enjoy the last lazy days of summer.
Of course it can be easily attributed via scientific explanations to the number of particulates in the air, the angle of the sun and how it’s refracted through the atmosphere, and so on.
Beyond the science, there is something truly magical about the color of the late summer and early autumn sky. We’ll hear from several musicians who paint it with sound.
