Practice #32: Strangerfamiliar
!t!r!u!t!h! (absolute truth)
an emotional experience of transforming absolute truth into a tolerable emotional truth
Strangerfamiliar‘s meditation is a sea that you will get lost in, and find yourself. Harmonic waves of vocals are grounded in deep tones that slow breath and induce deep relaxation. Using a looper, minilogue and vocal processor, Strangerfamiliar uninhibits the listener and sets the stage for emotional body processing, joy, and transcendence.
So much the rather Celestial light
Shine inward and the mind through all her powers
Irradiate, there plant eyes, all mist from thence
Purge and disperse, that I may see and tell
Of things invisible to mortal sight.
(Milton, 1674, Paradise lost, p 101)
a truth quest to the source
where experiences translate to emotion
in a state of reverie
enter the unconcious
summon emotional truth
there is a common sense
a corroboration of reality
beacons of truth
a way towards the acceptance of reality
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.
We would like all guests to be able to participate, so please arrive on time. Seating is limited: first come, first served.
