practice #3: abstracting the physcial
sunday, september 11th, 2016, 8pm, free entry
820plaza (6820 marconi)
we would like all guests to be able to participate, so please arrive on time.
building on material from his first session, sound artist mikael tobias explores the psychoacoustic properties of elemental sound to bring attention to their physicality. manipulating filtered noise, low frequency tones and rhythmic impulses, tobias creates an environment where visceral reactions to sonic space can catalyze alterations in mental state. through a corporeal engagement with noise, there is a continual investment in the present that detaches the mind from thoughts and allows for new experiences to emerge. the absence of traditional harmony creates the possibility to let go of musical expectations, encouraging a state of awareness and acceptance.

we have a few yoga mats available to use and listeners are invited to bring their own sitting paraphernalia if they please.
820plaza is a sparse industrial multi-purpose venue. the venue is wheelchair accessible, but the washrooms are not fully accessible. however there are accessible washrooms just across the path at alexandraplatz.
