Converting the word 'equinox' from latin is to say 'equal' and 'night'.
Equinox occurs when the sun crosses the celestial equator making the length of both day and night almost equal. It takes place twice a year, around 20th March in the Northern Hemisphere, we know as spring. In the Southern Hemisphere this month is autumn. Back in the Northern Hemisphere on 22nd/23rd September we see Autumn and the Southern Hemisphere sees spring. During equinox both hemispheres will get equal amounts of light (around 12 hours).
As it takes place this week around 20th March it also known as the 'vernal' equinox and marks the beginning of the new year in Assyrian, Hindu and Persian calendars. This week we are also seeing March's full moon on Friday 18th - a time of the month historically said to have caused rocky moments in the psyche hence the word 'lunatic'. Possibly 'non-PC' these days but that said there's definitely a magnetic energy caused by this phase and I guess when put to use it can transpire into artwork.
The following is a list of artists and their tracks who have somewhat engaged the above themes relating to time, orbit, space and nature in their summary of sound.
We hope you enjoy:
10. DART - Dawn
11. Dyce - Apollo
16. Jamie Woon - Night Air (Solomun Edit)
