Rubin Museum: Sound Meditation w/ David Ellenbogen and Josh Peck

  • Rubin Museum

Acoustic Mandala Project returns to the Rubin Museum of Art with an immersive sound meditation experience. Traditional sound meditation instruments will be used in concert with a bespoke eight-channel spatial sound system, exploring acoustic and electro-acoustic layers and textures of sound and their properties in space.

OM or Aum is the primal vibration from which all other vibrations are believed to emerge, including all light, sound, and physical matter.In the field of acoustics, vibrations of vibrations are called overtones, and these resonances are based on simple natural ratios. For example, doubling a sound wave’s frequency creates a note one octave higher. This tuning system has fallen out of favor in western music since the 17th century’s advent of Equal Temperament, which uses scales that don’t conform to the natural overtones of nature.

Acoustic Mandala Project creates soundscapes based on these original primal vibrations, which can facilitate a transformative and healing experience. In the context of a sound meditation, participants lie down on yoga mats and don eye masks, while the facilitators utilize gongs, Tibetan bowls, bamboo flutes, overtone singing, and other instruments to create an immersive sound experience.

Keansburg, NJ: Gratitude Migration

  • hELLO Beach

You’re invited to enter a world where life becomes art and dreams become reality, set on an idyllic, undiscovered beach remarkably close to New York City. A seaside oasis where dreams turn into reality, with others who share the same vision of creativity, culture and connection. A gathering of open-minded spirits communing in music, dance, art, performance, technology, environmentalism, yoga, spirituality, family, and… connection. 

I will be setting up an Immersive Sound Bath for the weekend.

Immersive Sound Bath: Collab with Jenn Grossman

  • Daya Yoga

This experience will bring listeners on a journey inward through ambient soundscapes designed for 8-channels. As sound has been used for healing purposes since ancient times, this sound bath will use recorded sound and electronic music rather than traditional ancient instruments like gongs, singing bowls and tuning forks.

Seated amidst a circle of speakers, participants will be able to absorb sonic vibrations from multiple directions, allowing the mind to wander towards a states of reflection, meditation and creativity and the body to be fully immersed within a relaxed environment.
