On this edition of At Water's Edge, we feature both music and artworks of Mystified, aka Thomas Jackson Park (mystifiedmusic.com/). It seems perfect that he is a fan of Jackson Pollock, and you can see it in his work, which we'll feature over on the video side. You can find his artworks at archive.org/details/thomaspark
The music will include Thomas' 2007 release Audio Paintings in its entirety, as well as other works selected by him especially for this program.

Risen Gods is a 15-minute drone by Mister Vapor written to bring on the "Rising" of a listener's fallen, or sleeping, gods. The drone should calm, while stimulating creativity and awareness. Listen and re-connect with your Ur-self.

As stated, more will be added soon. So, please, stop by my collection and gather some original painting-based images for yourself! Here is the collection:
