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.

practice is a series of  group meditations using noise to induce different transcendental states of awareness and being. this meditative noise series was inspired by the theories underpinning sound healing and brain entrainment. research has shown that sound frequencies can impact physical phenomena to the point of transforming the molecular structure of matter.  from this spring board, sound healers were interested in how the natural vibrations of the body are affected by the frequencies of sound. it has been seen that certain frequencies encourage different experiential states, such as divinity, balance, and focus, among others. the solfeggio scale, a 6-tone scale that was used in Gregorian chants is tuned to frequencies that are known to alter states and induce a connected sense of spirituality. in addition,  research on brainwave entrainment theory has gathered substantial evidence showing that brainwaves, which correspond with our mental states as well as our vigilance to consciousness, are influenced by rhythms, pulsations and specific frequencies. thus through sound, we can alter our cognitive and emotional states and we can bend our sense of reality.

wanting to know for ourselves, practice is a serial investigation of the transcendental properties of different frequencies and rhythms. each session features a noise artist, who, informed by their own knowledge of sound and the principles of transformative frequencies, creates a meditative set intended to experiment with the possibility of altering the state of listeners. but we cannot do this alone. join us  and explore your own awareness of noise, space and being.

what to expect:
each session will be different, but will have noise, a guide, a sitting area and a hope that you will engage in listening in an open, meditative, exploratory way.

practice #2: specific frequency
sunday, august 7th, 8pm, free entry
820plaza
we would like all guests to be able to participate, so pls arrive on time.

certain frequencies have been known to have a powerful effect on listeners. in this session sound artist jeremy young will have two sets, 25 minutes each, exploring the frequencies 528hz and 741hz, using a tone generator, tape loops of amplified air and a reverb rainbow machine. this may not be easy listening, but it will certainly affect your mood in a positive way.

528hz, named “mi” in the solfeggio scale, is considered the “love” frequency, capable of miracles. it has been ascribed to divine supernatural powers and is attributed to inspiring wonder and marvel. in addition, it is used to return human dna to its original, perfect state. repaired dna is expected to increase energy, bring clarity and awareness, activate creativity and induce ecstatic states of peace and celebration.

741hz, “sol” in the solfeggio scale, is known to be a purifying frequency, cleansing cells from toxins, electromagnetic radiation build up, and infections (viral, bacterial and fungal). it leads listeners to a healthy, simple life. it is also known to encourage problem solving and self-expression.
