Earth Orchestra – level 3
Is it possible to create a piece of music using a musician from every country on Earth?
For the first time in music history, 197 musicians, one from each country, have formed an orchestra, and they have recorded the song ’Together is Beautiful’. They hope to exemplify how people can transcend physical and cultural borders to come together.
The song was recorded in different locations and it was then mixed together. The project was three years in the making, and other musicians were also struck by the unifying element of the project.
The project was overseen by BAFTA-winning composer George Fenton. However, many of the musicians improvised around his melodies and themes, and they combined musical styles and used instruments indigenous to their countries.
Difficult words: exemplify (to show by an example), transcend (to go beyond the limits), strike (to surprise, to make someone feel strongly), indigenous (originating naturally in a particular place).
