sound artist dominique alexander skillfully plays with memory and recall curating two sets using foley type sounds from personal, found and field recordings, mixed with melodic and rhythmic elements from a variety of sources. layering ambient and atmospheric airs, alexander fills an audio bath of dub echoes where micro samples bubble up to the surface and get pushed back down, reemerging again in changed configuration. toying with the comfort that repetition and familiarity bring about, alexander invites an atmosphere of awareness with focus on pattern recognition and recall. through sound, alexander fosters an environmental that nurtures meditative presence and the renewal of presence again and again.

practice is an investigation of the capability of sound to induce different transcendental states of awareness and being. through a series of noise sets, practice explores the experiential application of theories underpinning the transformational properties of sound, such as cymatics, music therapy, sound healing, brain entrainment, and binaural-beat perception.
each session features a noise artist, who, informed by their own knowledge of sound, creates a immersive set intended to bend consciousness. listeners are encouraged to embrace a receptive, meditative attitude during sets.
we don’t mind if you’re new or old to noise or meditation.
if you’re curious to be engaged, to open yourself to new experiences and to hear some noise, then join us.
we have yoga mats available to use and listeners are invited to bring their own sitting paraphernalia if they please. uniquely for this event will be the availability of chairs.
never apart is a non-profit organization in montréal, québec, canada, determined to bring about social change and spiritual awareness through cultural programming with global reach and impact.
