Validity: melody (sound) - topics - tradition...
The IMC transmission follows the trend radio is deliberating itself upon the spoken word*
... with music examples, which show the typical sound picture (nada) of the Indian classical music, monthly presentation of original CD productions, festival reports (special transmission) and a live production (night of ragas), supplemented by informative text contributions, e.g.: about the music system Ghandarva Veda, the 4000 years old music history of India, instruments and biographies of Indian music masters (Pandit, Ustad).
Targets: The IMC transmission likes to be understood as a paedagogical offer with high educational values, contributed for an
intercultural dialogue between India and Europe.
Professor Dr. H. Regner (university professor and teacher at the Orff Institute of the University of Mozarteum in Salzburg (Austria), today author
about musical education) refers to the "importance of geting (at an early stage of life) in contact with music". IMC wants to quote in part Regners
philosophy, which is in accordance to the sense of so called "Oneness"
(= harmony/unity) of the Indian Classical Music.
Professor Dr. Hermann Regner: "... important for listening music and making music is the own nature of mankind, which begins to swing, the human
soul is being touched by music â€¦ Only some few people exist, wo are satisfied with this world. Many think, many work on to change themselves ... It is time that only
the >whole human being<, who harmonizes thinking, feeling and acting, has the chance to survive. The absence of human feeling
resonance makes our world cold and uninhabitable.
Music is not of a magic charm. But it is a medium, in which humans holistic can express themselves, in which
they practice to bring heart, hand and head in interaction." (see complete quotation)
IMC believes in the sense of Regner, that Indian Classical Music can carry out the contribution to life in a special measure by its originality, keeping
alive the characteristics (as so called 'healing music '). A blurring by music of the style Yoga/mediation sounds, world music, modern jazz or the Bollywood film
industries, will be avoided under the label of IMC.
