we would like all guests to be able to participate, so please arrive on time. seating is limited and first come, first served.

deep listener and talented soundscape artist christian carrière has designed two conceptual sets pulling and pushing ideas to explore their influential capacity. join in sacred geometry and an immersive purring room.

the first set will explore the possibilities of audio fractals as compositional loops. fractals are pattens made up of smaller versions of the same pattern. there is discourse on the healing nature and meditative quality of fractals, as well as potential to mitigate effects of tinnitus. in this set, loops made from various sources (no-input console, field recordings) are structured in self-similar patterns, like audible versions of the fractal shapes we see in nature.

set two explores the deep resonance of cats’ purring, known to have the potential for tissue healing and cell regeneration. captured with modified stethoscopes and lavalier microphones, the set will move through tonal variations of purring from different cats.
