As we descend into autumn, cooling temperatures condense water vapor in the atmosphere into mist and fog. At dawn on fall mornings, we find a new world, magically air-brushed by sun and water. At night, it's a kaleidoscope of surreal colors and luminescent curtains surrounding cars, signs and streetlights.
Mist is ethereal and mysterious. It blurs and conceals, softening form and blending colors into hazy gradients, shrinking the world around us to a gauzy blanket, bending light with a palette of optical special effects: rings and halos, diffusion, refraction and reflection.
In ambient music, the equivalents of fog and mist are deep drones, shadowy harmonies, and dense clusters of subtle sound. It's music for drifting slowly...in a field of dreams.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, a journey in the autumn atmospheres...on a program called MISTS OF TIME.
