Soundscapes from the Edges

Musicians, sound artists and composers from Beijing, Mumbai, Beirut to Sao Paulo, from Istanbul, Belgrade, Lagos to Johannesburg create music and soundscapes that reflect the effects of localisation and globalisation processes on various levels. We hear new representations beyond exotic East-West-Formulas, we hear the noise of World Politics, Propaganda and War in challenging settings. This podcasts offers a short glimpse into the multimedia performance «Soundscapes from the Edges» with artists who work towards new definitions of what is local and global music – main focus: The Middle East.
