This week, we'll look at the many aspects of melancholia. In particular, German Renaissance master Albrecht Dürer engraving of the same name. We can linger over the many symbols of mathematics and alchemy portrayed in the work but ultimately it's all about how one feels. Expounding and deflecting for us this week are All India Radio, Plastik Joy, Matisse and Deeper Sublime, Eskazed, Blind Divine and Gate Zero. I’m Jim Nye
