...is the first phase of a three part meditation project recorded during live community events. Each improvised track is named after the community that contributed their time, energy and practices while I was recording. Although these communities are located in different geographical locations, and participants will most likely never meet in person, they are united by the common threads of intentional self-exploration, mindfully vulnerable practice and their freely gifted participation.
Inspired deeply by such artists as Pauline Oliveros, Aphex Twin, Gregorian Choirs, Brian Eno, etc… This project reflects a commitment to the meditative qualities of repetition, drone, free vocalization, and improvisation. It is a sonic exploration of our journey through catharsis and the potentials of emotional release in practicing non attachment to strict structures.
The breathy quality of each recording and interplay that occurs by combining dynamics in exploratory ways references the allowances we make for contributing human elements during live performances. This method of recording highlights the beauty in imperfection and the limitless potential for creation in spite of the fact that a perfect expression of any live sonic performance is unattainable. And more broadly, that a perfect expression of daily life is also unattainable, yet our daily experience can still be beautiful.
Within the sonic mindfulness world, we release attachment to meaning, judgement values and perceptions attached to words. Instead, we interact with our role as receivers of sensory input and the power inherent in our capacity to transmute what seems meaningless, into cognitive, emotional and physical nourishment. By easing into the process of deep listening, deep breathing, and deep being, we encounter ourselves as wholly present and entirely free from the confines of language associated meanings. In that space, we are completely free to be; and so much more.
