The music of geography

There are some people who feel that music is their entire world-- others, like James Plakovic, choose to make the entire world into music.

All of the continents have been transformed into notes and the oceans are rests in this interesting take on geography, titled "World Beat Music."

The piece is written for 37 instruments, each reading its line across the map from West to East, which leads to some very busy-sounding sections.

You can read more about the World Beat Music, and listen to an interview with Plakovic (and the music being played!) here.

(The player should jump directly to the desired segment, but if not, the times are 36:20-41:25.)
