This week, we'll look into the fire. Mesmerizing as it is, fire is a perfect metaphor for love, desire and passion. From the dazzling white of 1,500 degrees C to Dull Red of 700, fire's ability to warm, over the long term yet burn quickly or smolder for weeks matches our personal histories, relations and ourselves.

This week, we'll look at the illusion of permanence and the inevitably of change. The tricky thing about change is that it is often not even perceptible. Gradual and incremental, it often takes a change in perspective to see the change happening all around us.

This week we look at emotional isolation. It seems the more we reach out the less we feel. It might be the continuing reliance on the intrawebs or fragmentation of society but increasingly many of us are alone and not by choice. Next time you are at a restaurant and see a couple glowing with the bluish tint of their separate mobile phones or simply sitting together but not talking, you'll understand what I mean. Demonstrating the ways we've becoming isolated on this episode of Idyllic Music are White Blush, Bioscape, Niyaz, Soulacybin, Winterstrand and Kate Martin. I'm Jim Nye…

This week, we'll look at loves first heartbreak. When young untested emotions are at their most potent and everything seems so damned important. As George Eliot so aptly put it. There is no despair so absolute as that which comes from the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and be healed, to have despaired and recovered hope. On this episode of Idyllic Music we'll hear from Globular, Jah Wobble, Zeus Scientist, EeBoO, mmpsuf, and Chriss SoLo. I'm Jim Nye…

This week's episode of Idyllic Music is brought to you by the number 3. It is, I believe, the most ubiquitous symbol man has created throughout history. From religion to physics and beyond, the number 3 is found everywhere. The atom is made up of 3 components. Almost all faiths have a core aspect containing 3 parts. Shakespere, Tolkien and a host of modern authors have found the trilogy or number 3 irresistible. All of this despite the overwhelming dominance of the number 2 in our own biology, 2 eyes, ears, arms and legs. What is it about that added digit? Exploring the musical end of the number 3 for us are Nicolas Eller, Radioactive Sandwich and Ovalys. I'm Jim Nye.Try the new Idyllic Music app.…

Whether the result of the discovery or admission of infidelity or the euphemism of 'growing apart', the cold numbness deep inside of those unaware and most pained lives on in a hundred ways. Its never about them as protested but the left behind deal in anger and recriminations, self-doubt and what-ifs. It is a sadness that lessens over time but never heals.

This week, we'll try to fathom the hidden world of Esotericism. It's a fool's errand; really, because the point is certain things are kept by a narrow circle of the enlightened or initiated away from the rest of us. The most obvious are in the government or religious arena but the idea cascades down to much smaller things like school or office politics.

Ellington knew it and Irving Mills codified it but many of today's singer-songwriters from Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Nora Jones and notably Amos Lee's "Sweet Pea" have taken it to heart. From it's pre-war origins, swing music's rhythmic style based on a triplet subdivision of the beat was what moved hips out on the dance floor.

Next was the advent of personal digital recording allowing bands to record professional quality music on a shoestring and finally the Internet offered the ability for bands to market their own music.
