Arab Radio & Television

west meets middle east

A fascinating challenge: to create the music for the launch of the Arab Radio & Television satellite channels.

Christian composed the music for a score of different channel strands: cookery, sports, films, current affairs, and the icon galloping horse idents that appeared right across the channels.

Using the Egyptian oud as the starting point, Christian's job was to create energy and action to match the fantastic galloping horse. The many other idents used a wide variety of instruments: flutes or neys, percussions, zithers and the familiar melodic violin hooks that characterise middle eastern popular music.
