practice #21: two colour sets by piper curtis
saturday, january 13th, 4pm, free entry, all ages
we would like all guests to be able to participate, so pls arrive on time.
seating is limited and first come, first served.
in two distinct 20 minute meditative sets, talented sound artist piper curtis explores the relationships between colour, noise and environment. stemming from white noise, these sets introduce listeners to other colours within the spectrum. curtis evokes familiar environments seeped in colour (imagine the sound of a yellow sunlit day, a white snowy blizzard, a greenhouse) and listeners are transported into unfamiliar textures inspired by colourscapes. the first set focuses on the watery world of mids, turquoise and azure, washing over and seeping in. the second set draws from the windy highs, cerulean and magenta, the pink sky following a storm. transposing colour into sound, we allow for an imaginative reinterpretation of vibrational frequencies, a synesthetic understanding of the reception of one sense as another, pushing our known perceptions into creative new territory.

practice is an investigation of 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.
we have yoga mats available to use and listeners are invited to bring their own sitting paraphernalia if they please.
