I was interested in exploring the concepts of movement in a state of oneness as in the starling murmurations and how healing and sound could create those waves within the community. This event commenced with a sound bath with tibetan quarts crystal bowls, then an affirmation Station in which participants could record their own personalized guided meditations to the sounds of the solfeggio frequencies. It closed with an experimental performance where I incorporated sound gongs, vocal loops and field recordings in an electronic sound installation.
