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. Music is by JOHAN AGEBJORN, CRAIG PADILLA, JEFFREY KOEPPER, BROEKHUIS, KELLER AND SCHONWALDER, STEPHEN PHILIPS, OOPHOI, STEVE ROACH, and PATRICK O'HEARN.
