About the Event
The essence of the event is for everyone to play one note for up to three hours on the same pitch (in different octaves) as a way to tune up and tune in, to a deeper appreciation of music. As the note settles, the harmony within one note is found.
Vinod has facilitated experiences like this lasting up to 6 hours, the note keeps on changing over the time until it settles in the space within, without and between. An exercise in intense active listening, One Note is a deep experience utilising the phenomenon of sympathetic vibration.
Come along, bring an instrument and bask in the sound!
Date/Time: 7pm February 23, 2023 Location: Good Shepherd Chapel, 1 St Heliers St Abbotsford Convent Entry: General $15; Concession $10
