Practice #41: YlangYlang
Deeply interested in music as an experiential medium, YlangYlang aims at creating a truly interactive moment in which people are free to engage as they wish.
Everyone’s inner mechanisms are intricate in unique ways, and music can be a gentle navigation device each can use to navigate through the depths of the psyche. Sound can caress strange dreams, bring back memories and affect, nourish creative thoughts and colors; it’s an intimate exchange of stimuli and feelings. She proposes for this practice an open-ended moment in suspension, a shared sonic landscape, a shimmering of sound and textures to dive into.
► ABOUT PRACTICE
Practice is a series of sound meditation sessions with a different ambient/noise music performance each time. This event series investigates 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.
