Search of Experience

Instead we explore further and further and further without looking for an answer. We go on deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper, until we reach the point where there is no answer. At that point we tend to give up hope of an answer, or of anything whatsoever, for that matter.
This hopelessness is the essence of crazy wisdom.
~ Tibetan Tulku ~

One World Music.

One Giant Leap have created a unique music, TV and film project. What About Me? is the culmination of 4 years work visiting 50 global locations collecting wisdom and musical jewels. It’s an inspiring and alarming look at our collective insanity: how we are ego-driven, needy in relationships, insatiable in desire, addicted to status, wounded by childhood and unable to stop thinking, but how we still manage to be inspired and creative.

The backbone of the project is the music that One Giant Leap make. They start with pre-composed backing tracks in a laptop studio. The music grows as each layer is added, seamlessly mixing international stars like Alanis Morissette, KD Lang and Michael Franti, with Bedouin Musicians, Chinese rappers, Gabonese Pygmies, Tuvan throat singers, Egyptian folk musicians, Japanese taiko drummers. In addition, they manage to capture a unique take on the collective human condition, helped along by contributions from, among others, Noam Chomsky, Eckhart Tolle, Stephen Fry, Will Young, Maxi Jazz, Tim Robbins, Billy Connolly and Michael Stipe.
