An immersive and evocative recreation of locations around the world through classical music, soundscapes, improvisation and perfumes.
From tropical sounds of Java, storms in southern Spain, the spice markets of Istanbul to Buenos Aires, pianist Belle Chen performs works of Ravel, Mompou, Poulenc, Scarlatti, Fazil Say, and Piazzolla amidst manipulated field recordings and improvisation in collaboration with perfumer Nadjib Achaibou and guest musicians.
