Giza é ruh is a music-/soundethnological project
by kutin peter, lercher daniel & wilding barbara

they travelled through various spots of northern india for 3 months, doing field-recordings, always seeking for sound, music & musicians

the recordings include
- religious music / ceremonies by buddhist, muslim, hindu and sikh culture
- traditional music & instruments from tibet, ladakh & northern india
- soundscapes (the natural enviromnment, the massive collage of noises from india´s capital delhi, the silence that can be found in the himalayan mountain ranges, etc.).
these projects deal with different cultures/areas/social-systems and their concepts towards music, listening, the meaning of sound for their everyday lifes.
based on a fascination to take the time to listen to each other.

there will be various radio-broadcasts, live-presentations, a cd-release and sound installations
