Acoustic Mandala Project: Sound Meditation Experience

February 24
9:30 - 11:00 PM

OM or Aum is the primal vibration from which all other vibrations emerge, including all light, sound, and physical matter.

In the field of acoustics, vibrations of vibrations are called overtones, and these resonances are based on simple natural ratios. For example, doubling a sound wave’s frequency creates a note one octave higher. This tuning system has fallen out of favor in western music since the 17th century’s advent of Equal Temperament, which uses scales that don’t conform to the natural overtones of nature.

Acoustic Mandala Project creates soundscapes based on these original primal vibrations. The sounds are inherently transformative and healing. In the context of a sound meditation, participants lie down on yoga mats and don eye-masks, while the facilitators utilize gongs, Tibetan bowls, bamboo flutes, overtone singing, and other instruments that create these transcendent sounds.

Originally founded by David Ellenbogen (Brooklyn Raga Massive) and Joshua Geisler (Cirque du Soleil), the Acoustic Mandala Project was the first soundbath experience presented by the venerable World Music Institute and has recently appeared on the new Putamayo release Acoustic Yoga.

Please bring your own mat (required) and a warm sweater or blanket.

OM Lab is made possible through the generosity of HARMAN. Additional support provided by contributors to the 2017 Exhibitions Fund.
