Day 1: Sat 22 January

7pm GMT / 2pm EST – Feeling Sound: The Embodiment of Listening – with Lavender Suarez (Supported by SUBPAC)

Music’s power to evoke emotion has been discussed in-depth since its inception; but rarely do we discuss what it means to truly “feel” a sonic experience. In “Feeling Sound,” sound artist and healing practitioner Lavender Suarez will guide participants through demonstrations and discussions about sound’s power to literally move us. In their simplest form and meaning, all sounds are simply vibrations traversing through space. Every moment we are mediums for sound to transmit through, whether we’re experiencing live music at a concert, walking down the street, or simply sitting in our homes.
