Here you are the documentation related to this evening:
-About the Jimmy Cliff song we heard at the beginning this is the call sent by Black Lives Matter UK
-Karina Scherbakova's body warm up was focusing on a connective tissue called fascia. If you want to know more about that topic you can get in touch with her (firstname.lastname@example.org).
-Below you can also find a link to download her guided recorded meditation called Somatic Fairy Tale. Are you in touch with your ears ?
-We then performed Pauline Oliveros' Sonic Meditation XIX that literally implies touching our ears.
-Maintaining our attention towards our inner sounds we then practised Oliveros' Deep Listening exercice called Heart Beat.
-Following the Heart Beat, we looked at the rhythm of listening via memory and imagination thanks to an adaptation of Oliveros' Bowl Gong. As we were gathering online and participants could not make sounds from a single original sound source, they held their hand to ask artist Cathy Heyden to activate the sound. On this variation, Cathy played simultaneously a sustained pitch on a bowl gong and an alto saxophone.
-Finally we listened to Charlotte Wendy Law recorded guided meditation called Listening interstices. You can download the recording with the link below. Before starting this piece find a confortable space where to lay down and a bowl of water. If possible use headphones but if not that is fine without.
