This Week From Hearts of Space: PGM 972 ‘SUPERNATURAL’

i1
About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us:
“The worlds of fantasy and imagination have a cherished history in popular fiction, with legions of dedicated fans around the world. Inspired by mythology and folklore extending back to the earliest human cultures, fantasy fiction emerged as a genre in the mid-19th century and came to prominence in the 20th with medievalist classics like Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings,” C.S. Lewis’s “Chronicles of Narnia,” and J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series.

While born in literature and later extended to popular films and computer games, musicians have also been exploring this rich field of imagery to create ambitious concept albums. On this transmission of Hearts of Space, imaginary worlds, spectral and ethereal sounds, and fantastic themes — on a program called SUPERNATURAL. Music is by PRISCILLA HERNANDEZ, PSICODREAMICS, KLAUS SCHULZE, STEVE BRAND, BUILDING THE CATHEDRAL, BETWEEN INTERVAL, THIERRY DAVID and PAUL AVGERINOS.”

This Week From Hearts Of Space: PGM 971 ‘WINTER HARMONIES’

i1
About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us:
“It seems the farther north you go, the warmer the music. It’s a generalization to be sure, but whether the genre is North Country folk music, classical, jazz, electronics, or some creative hybrid — northern musicians have a history of chasing away the chill with melodies and harmonies that please the ear, warm the heart, and nourish the soul. More often than not those harmonies are consonant, derived from the great European romantic tradition, and extended with love and care.

On this transmission of Hearts of Space…a midwinter collection of instrumentals that bring us that sought-after feeling of warmth and space…on a program called WINTER HARMONIES. Music is by BILL DOUGLAS, SECRET GARDEN, WILLIAM ZEITLER, JEFF PEARCE, KETIL BJORNSTAD & DAVID DARLING, FRANCOIS COUTURIER, THE TYTINGVAG ENSEMBLE, and introducing M.K.SOL.’

This Week From Hearts of Space: PGM 901 ‘FLOATING REVERIES’

fr
About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us:
“Under the gray skies and chilled atmospheres of winter, we attune to a slower pulse. Activities curtailed for the moment, there’s time to dream a bit, and for that we revisit our old standby, the grand piano.

Though large and massive in the physical world, in the world of music, the piano can fly and float…on weightless waves of sound. And when combined with ambient electronics, we have a potent vehicle for travel to deep and distant dimensions.

On this transmission of Hearts of Space, a piano/chamber/electronic journey called FLOATING REVERIES. Music is by LUDOVICO EINAUDI, ELENI KARAINDROU, BRUNO SANFILLIPO, ASHLEY/ROEDELIUS/STORY, and MICHAEL JONES.”

This Week From Hearts of Space: PGM 970 WINTERSCAPES 2

i3
About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us:
“The winter atmospheres range from airy transparent blues to dense monochromes; from brilliant sun to chilled mists, and skies overcast by sullen clouds. Winter drains the color from the
landscape and leaves behind a subtle palette of grays, browns, and blues. And after the snow, a world of whites.

In the far north, the earth freezes hard and time seems to slow. It’s a silent contemplative environment that’s inspired electronic musicians to create a sub-genre called ‘glacial and
isolationist ambient’.

On this transmission of Hearts of Space…we take a deep dive into the winter atmospheres on a program called WINTERSCAPES 2.”

We will hear music from ERIK WOLLO, MAX CORBACHO, IGNEOUS FLAME, PAUL VNUK JR. and OOPHOI, NETHERWORLD, and MARKUS REUTER

This Week From Hearts of Space: PGM 969 CRYSTAL COSMOS

i1
About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us:
“Winter brings crystals called ice and crystals called snow. And in the music of the season, we find crystalline sounds, made by instruments of metal, glass, and quartz — crystal molecules all.

Whether bells, singing bowls, quartz crystal bowls, ‘glass harps’ of tuned wine glasses, or the ‘glass harmonica’ invented by BENJAMIN FRANKLIN — these instruments in the resonant percussion and rubbed autophone families are all made from crystalline
materials and share a sonic signature often called “ethereal.”

They’re beautiful, quiet and powerful, and want to be heard together. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do on this transmission of Hearts of Space called CRYSTAL COSMOS. Music is by WILLIAM ZEITLER, ROBERT TISO, DENNIS JAMES, YATRI, DANIEL LENTZ, and MICHAEL STEARNS.

This Week From Hearts of Space: PGM 968 ICE CASTLES

i1
About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us:
“Here in these early days of changing climate, our concept of winter may need some adjustment. While we’re enjoying t-shirt weather in California, south Texas and Florida, other parts of the U.S. are getting hammered by record rain, sleet, and snow. It’s a disruptive challenge for the entire country, and we may be dealing with a lot more of it in years to come.

OK, that’s the hard news, but one of the good things about winter storms are the visual and sculptural effects of frozen water — ice crystals on windows, icicles on trees and buildings, and blankets of snow airbrushed on the landscape that transform our world into something magical.

Among the most magical of winter’s artistic delights are ice castles. Whether naturally occurring where moving water meets freezing cold, or artistically created — ice castles are a yearly attraction in many cold weather climates. On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we search for the sound of frozen water, on a program called ICE CASTLES. Music is by KIRSTY HAWKSHAW, ANDREW LAHIFF, BRIAN ENO, MAITREYA, BETWEEN INTERVAL, MICHAEL KASTRUP, and JUSTIN VANDENBERG.

This Week From Hearts of Space: PGM 862 “ABSOLUTE ZERO”

i3
About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us:
“In the brief days after the winter solstice, we pass the apogee of the yearly cycle of earth and sun, and plunge into the season of cold and dark. For our friends in Alaska and the Arctic north, the days become mere formalities. The distant sun struggles to reach the horizon, appears briefly, then retreats into darkness. Water hangs suspended in the blue-gray atmosphere,
and we enter a world of deep, silent spaces, muted by fog and snow.

On this transmission of Hearts of Space, a journey to the quiet heart of winter called ABSOLUTE ZERO.”
