About the Musician
Alex Falk is a certified sound therapy practitioner, musician, audio producer, emcee, and educator. Since 2013, Alex has been facilitating public sound baths and large-scale meditation events individually and with his long-time partner, sound therapy practitioner and meditation teacher Sara Auster. He is a continuing facilitator for the Big Quiet and has partnered with meditation and wellness programs like Medi Club, Ziva Meditation, and Sound Off NYC. He has offered sound baths at venues such as Lincoln Center, the Rubin Museum, and Central Park SummerStage.
In 2014 he left his job in the music industry and began introducing the healing and transformative power of sound to one of NYC’s critically underserved populations: public school students. He has since brought mindfulness and meditation programs into public elementary and high schools across the five boroughs. Alex is focused on making meditation and the healing power of sound accessible to everyone. As a teacher and facilitator, he guides students through sound meditations and mindfulness practices, giving them the tools to access and support states of deep relaxation.
