S5-35: Elemental Music: Water, Part 2


“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”  – Loren Eiseley

Earth.  Air.  Fire. Water.  From the times of the ancient Greeks, and up to the present day, these four elements have been considered the building blocks upon which everything arises.  The element of water is critical to our existence.  We can live quite some time without food, but we cannot live more than a few days without water.  It’s no surprise, then, that water permeates so much of the music we hear.  Today’s episode is all about water music – music composed and performed with music as the inspiration.
