Vibrations Matter: Art & Science of Deep Listening

This event addresses vibrations from the point of view of visual and sound artists considering the scientific research into matter, brain waves, human and animal voice, environmental noise and outer space. Our starting point is quantum mechanics — based on music theory and that nanotechnology is showing us the waves that underlie all matter which many Eastern philosophies have known for centuries. We will view and listen to sound art projects that utilize vibrations, noise, and audible and inaudible realms and get in touch with our own soundscape that includes our body, mind, voice and environment vibrations. Breathing will be central to every session and we will engage in shared deep listening related to the topic of the week. Each session will include a talk with a particular topic followed by shared listening exercises with binaural / immersive sound. Participants are invited to share their weekly responses as video, recordings or writings. Deep Listening: Molecular and Cellular Vibrations Brain Waves and Space Human / Animal Voice / Mantra Noise Pollution Environment / Weather.
