Deep Listening: A Healing Sound Concert
$10 (Members: $8; Students: $5)
We invite you on an auditory enterprise, a musical meditation, a vibration adventure.
Experience a magnificent soundscape of crystal bowls and didgeridoo in the grand Carnegie Music Hall for a Healing Sound Concert with Vox Lumina and Octeel. This evening will delightfully combine the elements of sonic science, spiritual practice, and artistic expression. The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.
Participants sit in the Music Hall during this experience. Come ready to be relaxed and renewed!
What is a Healing Sound Concert?
It is said that the crystal bowls and didgeridoo generate both an ambient and visceral vibration experience: you feel the sound surround you while it fills up the entire Music Hall. The duo intentionally produce an “acoustic alchemy” of Pythagorean tunings and musical mathematics that generate unique sound forms and colorful, textured soundscapes. The sonic experience encourages an increased auditory awareness and “deep listening” and induces a relaxed and meditative state.
