In our contemporary society, which is ever more globalized, the idealistic concept of multiculturalism, which says that “peace will come to the world if we respect other cultures,” seems to have come to a dead end. With this global circumstances in view, Ensembles Asia Orchestra tries to work out and continue to propose the performance of music as a means of building new forms of human relationships and forging agreements.

Ensembles Asia Orchestra is an attempt to work out new methods for creating a single unit while having people from diverse backgrounds respect one another, an ambitious project that proposes a new vision for international cultural exchange in the midst of globalization.

Unlike ordinary orchestras, which seek to improve their technique or give correct performances, Ensembles Asia Orchestra has put on programs with the general public, programs that anyone can participate in, irrespective of whether they have instruments or experience. In performing with people who have no experience with music or performing in a non-technical way with people who may have such experience, we have returned to the basic question of what music is and have carried out a variety of activities to investigate the nature of music.

In attempt to explore the idea, Ensembles Asia Orchestra in partnership with Teater Garasi, and supported by Laras – Studies of Music in Society, present a public discussion and performance entitled “MUSIC: AN ENCOUNTER”

Ensembles Asia Orchestra dan Teater Garasi bersama Laras – Studies of Music in Society mempersembahkan:

Dalam masyarakat kontemporer, yang semakin global, gagasan multikulturalisme yang menyatakan “kedamaian dunia akan tercapai jika kita saling menghormati budaya lain,” tampak menemukan jalan buntu. Melihat kecenderungan global ini, Ensembles Asia Orchestra mencoba memberlangsungkan musik sebagai cara membangun bentuk-bentuk baru dan kesepakatan baru dalam relasi antar manusia. Ensembles Asia Orchestra mencoba menggelar metode-metode baru dalam menciptakan unit tunggal dari dengan berbagai latar belakang budaya yang saling menghormati, sebuah kerja yang ambisius yang menawarkan visi baru pertukaran budaya di tengah era globalisasi.

Tidak seperti orkestra biasanya yang mencari peningkatan teknik atau pergelaran yang tepat, Ensembles Asia Orchestra menawarkan program kepada masyarakat umum, sebuah program dimana setiap orang dapat berpartisipasi, dengan tidak mempertimbangkan kepandaian atau pengalaman dalam bermain alat musik. Dalam memberlangsungkan proses bersama partisipan yang miskin pengalaman bermusik, atau mencoba memberlangsungkan proses dalam cara-cara non-teknis dengan mereka yang punya pengalaman, maka kita kembali pada pertanyaan dasar ‘apa itu musik’, dan menjalankan berbagai aktivitas dalam menelisik esensi musik.

Sebagai upaya menelusuri gagasan ini, Ensembles Asia Orchestra bekerjasama dengan Teater Garasi / Garasi Performance Institute, didukung Laras – Studies of Music in Society, menyelanggarakan serangkaian acara diskusi publik dan pementasan musik bertajuk “MUSIC: AN ENCOUNTER”
