WHAT “MAKE MUSIC AROUND THE WORLD” IS? AND WHY?
Make Music Around The World is a project that was born in 2018 from an idea of Alberto and Giulia, respectively musician/producer and singer/dancer of the group Nowhen.
“The idea is to travel the world to discover new cultures and to use the journey as a source of inspiration to compose original music. New music that is bound not only to express ourselves, but to write songs that can give emotions to the listeners, that can shake, allow people to think and, why not, to bring a change.
Songs that can inspire! Exactly, this is one of the most essential tasks of an artist: to inspire.
Because, who is an artist like us, can’t just be an entertainment; our task is to bring beauty into the world through our art.
The journey was always fascinated us, the idea to be in contact with cultures, people, and nature totally different from ours, always let us feel a thrill inside, an irrepressible desire to leave.
The other reason for our journey was that we were totally exhausted about the life we lived, completely slaves of our habits and of some unconscious fears that blocked us in a lifestyle that we didn’t like so much.
So, now, we can quietly say that our wasn’t a departure but a real escape!”
WHY THE SOUTHEAST ASIA?
We chose South East Asia as the first step for different reasons: we never been there, it “resonated” with us, we dreamed it, and it was totally out of our comfort zone.
Since the beginning the idea was to not go from a hotel to another as tourists, but to live the more we can in contact with the local people; this allowed us to know the real culture of every population, and understand the different shades.
“The good aspect of being into the crowd is that we have to tuck our sleeves; we found ourselves luckily forced to come out from our comfort zone and to face our fears, the prejudices we had.
Then, at some point something magic happens, things start to flow, and the inspiration for a piece of new music and a new life comes.”
DO YOU TRAVEL WITH WHAT? AND WHERE DO YOU RECORD YOUR SONGS?
“Our baggage was reduced this year, as in everything there are some rules and also with luggage is like that to let new things enter you have to let go of the older ones. In general, we understood this is a rule that is okay for many aspects of life. So, now we travel with what is necessary.
To record and to compose music is become more enthusiastic because according to the place we are we have to adapt ourselves (in an enthusiastically and creatively way): from the house on the beach to the little room in the more busy street in all Malaysia. :)”
HOW DO YOU SUSTAIN THE PROJECT?
“For now, we have not any sponsor, and so we decided to start a Crowdfunding campaign, ‘Make Music Around The World‘, indeed, and the answer and support of people were fantastic.
So many people wrote to us, donated, and they offered their professional skills.
Here there is the link at the campaign where there are more details about the project and some useful information.” CLICK HERE!!!
