“By travelling both physically (and ViRtually) around the Earth, we are witness to the most breathtaking landscapes, sights and inspiration. With 195 countries across the world and over 7000 languages in use today, this music was inspired by our multicultural diversity, our shared knowledge and experiences, and our ever evolving infinite combinations. May we unshackle our illusory boundaries and embrace our spiritual and global interconnection, together. “ MIRAI, Dec 2021.

Vocal sounds created via the Online Tone Generator. Location sounds recorded in Osaka, and Shiga, Japan. Additional sounds sourced from the Soundhunters project for Ethnogenesis (part.5)

The languages sampled and processed for this music include: Latin, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, Dutch, German, Russian, Ukrainian, Lithuanian, Slovenian, Hebrew, Yiddish, Kurdish, Armenian, Afrikaans, Swahili, Turkish, Arabic, Hindi, Hmong, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, Maori, Hawaiian, Navajo, Icelandic, Finnish, Swedish, Esperanto and English.

"For the distant peoples we shall bless / and the hushed murmurs of a world’s distress / but let our fears be still /and turn us to the future."
Words taken from the poem “Ethnogenesis “ by Henry Timrod, 1861
