For newborn babies all sounds are equally appealing. Only later do we learn what out-of-tune notes are, what harmony is, what is in time and what is not. Later on, how should you listen to music that is at odds with what you are used to? In other time signatures, with different harmonies, different structures? In this series of podcasts made especially for Gaudeamus musicians from different cultures give a highly personal introduction to the music they are in love with. They let you hear music, take you with them into their listening experience, talk and sing.
In March 2021 a new series of 6 Curious Ears podcasts kicked off starting guitar player and composer Aart Strootman. This time around, each podcast is accompanied by an interview with the podcast maker by Gaudeamus curator Jonás Bisquert about the backgrounds and the making of the podcasts.
