August, 16th 2008

“…it’s sunny Saturday in North Germany. – Yesterday I arrived at Hamburg Airport (Fuhlsbüttel) from Toronto where I have been 2 1/2 weeks for an Arangetram (Dance graduation) and before I am on the way back to home I take the chance and follow an Invitation of IMC OnAir settled in Hamburg.

There I met ElJay Arem again, the founder and owner of the promotion initiative IMC – India meets Classic on the media campus Finkenau where a radio show for Indian Classical Music is since more than two (2) years now with different formats (details about IMC OnAir @ IMC Radio.net (or @ MySpace)).

I got in contact with ElJay on 8th June 2008 beside the performances of my dance classes at the annual children music fest “Laut & Luise”.

IMC OnAir as an annual radio show for Indian Music Culture – broadcasted since March 2006 – is unique in the whole German language area. Beside Cable/Antenne the programme is worldwide available as Internet radio via it’s home channel TIDE (TideRadio 96.0 + Tide TV).

ElJay Arem is an Indian Music lover, a media producer and journalist who worked with many artists of the world of Indian Classical Music ! – Through his STUDIOTALK he gives Indian music maestros, music scientists, event organisations and other specialists the chance to present themselves in a dialogue directly to an international and European audience. And also by a detailed planning and research work of IMC OnAir he delivers a frame for specific themes and aspects to contribute an approach and deep going insight for Indian Classical Music especially for the Europeans.

Beside my studio visit I got the chance to have a 1st look at the new studio building (3 radio studios + 5 TV studios), set up on the media campus Finkenau, an unique place with the private University Hamburg Media School and different other institutions for media, film and journalism education…

IMC OnAir will produce from November 2008 on in these new facilities with fully digitalized radio studios.

This meeting on 16th August 2008 is based on the pre-talking in June for new media projects produced and broadcasted in 2009. Sounds exiting…”
