"Mona Lisa Overdrive" as inspired by sci-fi author William Gibson, is a musical tribute to the authors who have spun synthetic stories throughout the decades.  


From the earliest "Mechanical Men", to Robots, and Cybernetic entities such as Androids, the blending of synthetic and organic life has been woven into the fabric of Science-Fiction. This album, titled "Mona Lisa Overdrive" as inspired by sci-fi author William Gibson, is a musical tribute to the authors who have spun synthetic stories throughout the decades. 

Appropriate to the desired sound ambiance, a selection of tracks from The Roboter and Sequential Dreams have been taken from the Borders Edge Records vaults.

Dark Flight

posted Aug 21, 2016, 6:55 AM by Ron Charron   [ updated Aug 22, 2016, 4:14 PM ]


Sounds of psy/art/post rock, but also a healthy serving of synthesized ambiences and soundscapes


https://bordersedge.bandcamp.com/album/dark-flight

    The "Dark Flight" album offers a crossover of genres, borrowing from flavors of "art" and "psychedelic" instrumental rock but always within a strong envelope of ambient electronic music. A newer designation, "Post-Rock" is associated with music originating from an instrumental rock background but which often uses the traditional rock instruments as textural and sonic instruments to create instrumental tapestries that also often blend with ambient and synthesizer created soundscapes. 

This compilation album, titled "Dark Flight" presents a selection of tracks chosen for their darker but ethereal characteristics. You will find many of the traditional sounds of psy/art/post rock, but also a healthy serving of synthesized ambiences and soundscapes.

Zanshin

posted Aug 12, 2016, 3:04 PM by Ron Charron   [ updated Aug 12, 2016, 3:09 PM ]

"Gentle melodies weave through inspiring soundscapes rich in textures, providing a setting you can use to ease into your musical meditative moments"


https://bordersedge.bandcamp.com/album/zanshin
Zanshin (Japanese: 残心) is a state of awareness, of relaxed alertness, in Japanese martial arts. A literal translation of zanshin is "remaining mind". 
A number of cultures have made the cultivation of Zanshin the subject of ongoing discipline. Some would say that it is more about letting go of excess baggage and focusing on the present moment or what is also called "mindfulness". This compilation album presents a selection of tracks inspired by awareness of the present moment. Gentle melodies weave through inspiring soundscapes rich in textures, providing a setting you can use to ease into your musical meditative moments.

Jupiter Mission

posted Jul 30, 2016, 6:29 PM by Ron Charron   [ updated Jul 30, 2016, 6:31 PM ]


"A wide palette of sounds providing rich sonic tapestries enhancing the overall cinematic experience"


https://bordersedge.bandcamp.com/album/jupiter-mission

    Over the last few decades, a multitude of different styles of electronic music has evolved. With the vast range of sounds offered by synthesizers, it was only normal that electronic music would make its way into the world of soundtracks for visual productions. These productions often differentiated by a wide palette of sounds providing rich sonic tapestries enhancing the overall cinematic experience. As modern day synthesizers increasingly provided vast libraries of sounds, both synthetic and from recorded sound sources, the cinematic experience has grown into a genre of its own. Remove the video, and you still have a rich cinematic experience provided by rich soundtracks which give the listener opportunities to fill in the scenes with their own imaginations. 

This compilation album, titled "Jupiter Mission", is a selection of "Action Cinematic" electronic music chosen because of their rich evocative potential in action and adventure scenes. Sit back, close your eyes, and turn your own "internal projector" as you blast off into a space of your own creation!

Electron String Theory

posted Jul 16, 2016, 2:16 PM by Ron Charron   [ updated Jul 16, 2016, 2:18 PM ]

"An instrumental electronic music album which celebrates this synergistic 
relationship between guitars and synthesizers"

https://bordersedge.bandcamp.com/album/electron-string-theory

Guitars have always been great companions to electronic music. Some of the earliest productions in electronic music often came out of wild experimentations with electronic pedals, and processors. Eventually, as electronic music stood on its own, the wildest effects were mostly left to synthesizers, revealing the many distinct personalities of guitars (be they acoustic, electric, bass guitars). 
This compilation album of instrumental electronic music celebrates this synergistic relationship between guitars and synthesizers.
