Take a deep breath. After a series of journeys set in motion by the allure of distant music, it’s time to settle down in the garden of viewing stones, an early inspiration for contemplation prior to painting or writing that the Chinese called “Gongshi”. In the background, unobtrusively, music. In peace.
"Próximo Oriente" is a show broadcasted on Rádio Macau about what "Asia" or "oriental" convey in musical terms. It consists on weekly expeditions in search of representations of the Orient, an image constructed and fantasised through sound. We will be wandering across different soundscapes and exoticisms, under the spell of music from far away places.
