1. A slang term that refers to the beginning of a composition. When a conductor directs an ensemble to "start at the edge," it would mean that all musicians should start performing at the beginning of the composition. The slang term top (as in "start at the top") would also mean that all musicians should start performing at the beginning of the composition.
2. A slang term that refers to the brightness in the sound of an instrument. The sound of an instrument that "cuts" through an ensemble or has an excessivly brilliant sound would be said to have an edge. This is often a derogatory term and implies an unpleasant sound.
