Immersive Sound Bath with Tom Montagliano
Date: Tuesday August 22nd
Investment: $10 early-bird registration/$15 walk-in
An Immersive Sound Bath is very similar in nature to many of the traditional sound baths that you may be familiar with. However, instead of playing instruments such as glass bowls or gongs around the space, the sounds are created within a circle of 8 independent speakers utilizing the infinite possibilities of electronic sounds.
With this unique setup, the movement and frequency of the sounds can be controlled at a very precise level using the custom software that we have created to move sound in a circular pattern. The cyclical nature of the swirling sounds invokes a blissful and peaceful trancelike state unlike any other.
Additionally, because the sounds selected are neutral (not from nature or traditional instruments) it enables listeners to become easily immersed in thought and to effortlessly project their own imagery onto the soundscape.
The session itself begins by inviting the group to create a cozy place for themselves on the floor with pads, blankets, pillows and perhaps an eye cover. A brief introduction, greeting and intention setting is followed by 50 minutes of ambient electronic music created with 8 speakers around the group. After the immersion comes to a gentle close, the session ends with a few minutes of silence as they slowly return to awareness.
