Far Off Sounds is a new kind of music series, a hybrid of ethnographic documentary, music video, and travelogue. The show guides viewers through distant lands and hidden pockets close to home, exploring the beautiful, strange and varied ways that people use, play, and connect with music around the world. We live in a constantly evolving world of ephemeral trends and rapidly shifting cultural norms, and it is often difficult to make sense of this plethora of sensations within a larger context. Far Off Sounds seeks to provide this context by being all-inclusive. The series serves as a platform to connect the dots between the drumbeat of an African village and the pounding rhythm of Detroit techno; between the amplified songs of Orca whales and the electric guitar solos of psychedelic rock. The show tells discreet, intimate stories, in the service of the larger, infinitely complex story of music on earth.
