ENVELOP : deep listening concert series ~ with Benjamin Mettey, Justin Jones, and Jesse Whitney
Envelop will be a music and sound art event series focusing on the creation of a deep listening environment, in the Oliverosian sense of the term. Each event will be an artist-driven sound bath encouraging you to get lost in meditative reflection.
The night will begin by connecting as a group, followed by a brief introduction of the featured artist.
Next you will be encouraged to lie down and get comfortable on yoga mats with blankets and eye pillows (these can be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own comfy stuff). Floor seating will also be available if you want to maintain an upright posture.
You will be invited into a deep listening practice as a way to experience the sound art.
We will end the night with a dynamic group discussion of what we all experienced, as well as open up into organic social connecting.
This series is for you if:
- you are interested in sound as a medium for shifting consciousness, enhancing embodied experience, vibrational healing, expression, and activism.
- you love weirdo/outsider/underground sound art and want a space to enjoy this aesthetic fully – with all your senses.
- you are longing to connect with the local community of people who share your interest in this artistic medium – in an intimate, relational, and supportive setting.
- you are simply curious and feeling the call!
NOTE: This is not your typical sound healing event. Singing bowls will not be used. Please explore the work of the featured artists to get a better sense of what we are going for (see links below)!
