NEW! Perceiver of Sound League Sound Research Studio at Elsewhere

First Tuesdays at Elsewhere (details to be posted shortly)

The Perceiver of Sound League Sound Research Studio embraces the idea that anyone who is curious can do science, and that the phenomenon of sound is both profound and easy to investigate. Everyone who will attend possesses the greatest known instrument for sound production, the human body. And there are profound questions about the phenomenology of sound and music that can be directly investigated.

As Matt Marble, PhD says, sound phenomena are at the root of the 3 I’s, Intuition, Imagination and Inspiration. We seek the roots of creativity and to support each other in our creative work, and to inspire new approaches to not only music making but private practices like mantra, deep listening and self-therapeutic singing.



FORMAT

The program consists of:

1) A group meditation led by Son Pham to get everyone “tuned” to each other

2) two or three quite short presentations of sound research of less than ten minutes each, often on a predetermined theme
    a) sharing of research or results
    b) posing questions for research
    c) demonstrations
    d) personal experiences, anecdotes, or intuitions

3) ten or so minutes for mediated group discussion
3) a group listening experience
4) group sound practice (sometimes completely unrestricted, sometimes under constraints suggested by presenters.)

The Sound Research Studio would feature a special presenter every month (and attendees can sign up to present at a future session.)

Check out this Perceiver of Sound League monsterpiece:

The Perceiver of Sound League is a group of individuals
united for the spiritual practice of artistic production,
the study and practice of sound production and perception.

the mutual improvement of their members in the science of vocal music,
the development of the soul, character, spirit and body
through the practice of artistic, philosophical and scientific disciplines
and the production of spectacles and concerts that unify these disciplines.

The members of the Perceiver of Sound League individually and collectively aspire
to explore the nature of consciousness through the production and perception of sound.

Sound includes but is not limited to:

vocal music, instrumental music, language, poetry,
verbal communication, devotional chant, incantation and philosophical discourse.

We think it possible that the search for the Ultimate,
in which everyone participates,
is only hindered by dogma, authority and hierarchy.
Therefore the Perceiver of Sound League will espouse no dogma and claim no authority.
