ABOUT THE PEACE SONG TAPESTRIES
The Peace Song Tapestries is the concept of Musical Director musical director Dr Thomas Fitzgerald. It invites the Youth of the World to create and sing Peace Songs from every nation on earth – to form a music and soundscape Tapestry. Some of these songs will be traditional, folkloric songs and music, others will be brand new creations by individuals and groups.
Many of the songs will be created together, via the magic of the internet, by young people in different cultural groups and often in far away lands. In this way there is scope for them to teach their songs to each other, and to their parents.
It’s as easy as sending an emailed mp3 file! In addition, the elders of our communities also teach the old songs passing them on, the circles/cycles of life being manifested in music and sound.
The Peace Song Tapestries is creating a new kind of new genre of multi-platform media, formed from the music and ideas contributed by young music makers through the website and then combined to express various themes and aspects of peace. This allows for both interactive participation and general listening. In this way, the creative input from the community can be integrated and assist in creative processes as well as the adventure of discovery. This really opens up the possibility for a new role for media broadcast in the Australian and International communities, a role that exponentially increases the ways for people to be connected to their world.
More than a Global village this is a multi-sensory broadcast/internet fused “Global Neighbourhood”, as individuals discover new ways to share experiences and “talk to each other over the back fence”, the realities of interdependency are celebrated in almost magical dimensions. Through these resources and their exploration of music, they can connect in ways that embrace the heart and soul, deeply communicating powerful emotional experiences that can lead to profound understandings of themselves and other multi-cultural differences. It is the manifestation and sounding of this untapped power that this multi-platform project passionately offers, in the hope that many will join their voices into a single call for peace and understanding in these challenging times.
