This week we mark the official beginning of the fall season with the autumnal equinox. Here in the northern hemisphere, the sun has descended from the lofty heights of summer halfway to the low point of winter, and the days and nights are approximately of equal length: more accurately, the equilux.
Musically, we return to the complex tones of traditional acoustic instruments — the piano, the guitar and the cello. It’s a time for minor keys, descending progressions, and deepening harmonies, as we explore the sound of the season. On this transmission of HEARTS of SPACE, an ambient-acoustic journey for early autumn called THE FADING LIGHT. Music is by JEFF PEARCE, HANS CHRISTIAN & HARRY MANX, WILL ACKERMAN, KEVIN KELLER, HELEN JANE LONG and others.
