Ancient Journeys

Today, join us on a musi­cal jour­ney across the Ancient World, guid­ed by the ancient and mys­te­ri­ous Piri Reis Map; and look at the use of AI in art at 12 noon/4pm SLT. And tune in for Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity every four hours from 4am Pacific.

On our musi­cal jour­ney, we vis­it Ancient Greece, Rome and beyond to encounter the Sev­en Won­ders of the Ancient World. We redis­cov­er lost Atlantis, the ancient civil­i­sa­tions of South Amer­i­ca, cross the Pacif­ic and even trav­el to Antarc­ti­ca and the Moon.

An exten­sive col­lec­tion of music today, cross­ing sev­er­al gen­res from clas­si­cal to New Age, and fea­tur­ing such pieces as the late Stu­art Mitchel­l’s beau­ti­ful Sev­en Won­ders Suite, Vaugh­an Williams’ Sin­fo­nia Antar­ti­ca, the Car­tog­ra­ph­er album from E S Posthu­mus (the inspi­ra­tion for this playlist), Karl Jenk­ins’ Imag­ined Oceans and some Fresh Aire from Mannheim Steamroller.

Join us on today’s Ancient Jour­ney — then at noon or 4pm Pacific/SLT, 8pm or mid­night in the UK, don’t miss the lat­est episode of our series Where Have You Been? at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic, where we sug­gest places to go and things to do around the Sec­ond Life Grid. This time we take a dive into the pos­si­bil­i­ties of AI in art: there’s a gallery exhib­it this month com­posed com­plete­ly of AI Images at Kon­dor Art Cen­ter by artist Monique Beebe: “Mon­sters, Demons, & Chess” and that’s our fea­tured des­ti­na­tion for this episode.
