Review at BOF-O21

The Chestnut Tree compilation includes over 60 artists from 18 countries, collected for the program’s one year anniversary on KPFT , 90.1FM in Houston, Texas. The program also airs on, the largest ambient radio community on-line. This compilation is released through Buddhist on Fire as a creative commons download.

This project represents a system of artists, community radio and net labels that promote a large range of non-commercial and legally free music. This encourages new, creative and experimental music, listener exploration and free information. Thank you to all who donated their work, time and creativity for this compilation.

I'm grateful for anything that reminds me of what's possible in this life. Books can do that. Films can do that. Music can do that. School can do that. It's so easy to allow one day to simply follow into the next, but every once in a while we encounter something that shows us that anything is possible, that dramatic change is possible, that something new can be made...
