we would like all guests to be able to participate, so pls arrive on time. seating is limited and first come, first served.
for this meditation performance, js truchy will use two of the aspects we can find in sound meditation: sound as an object of concentration, and sound as an object used to see how our minds interact and judge the events that it encounters via the senses and the filters that cloud them based on ripening karma from previous lives.
js truchy has performed in montreal since 1996. buddhist philosophy, literature and cinema bring him to reflect on how to elaborate, conceive and orchestrate his compositions as well as the effect they have on their audience. his work is inspired significantly by the idea of emptiness, in its implications with respect to duality and our perception of the world. he aims to create music that challenges the notion of concept in both the musical and philosophical language, in order to destabilise his audience and confront them with the daily concepts that manage, direct and define our lives. currently pursuing the ideological and formal work begun several years ago, js truchy creates music characterised by the use of electronic instruments and vocals both sung and processed. He is often accompanied by video projections. these highlight the fluidity of the music and the concepts which inspired him by playing on colors found in textures and objects, while influencing the reception of his pieces.
Pour cette performance, Jean-Sébastien explorera deux dimensions des méditations sonores : le son en tant qu’objet de notre concentration, et le son en tant qu’indicateur des interactions de nos pensées, de notre karma et de la perception des expériences qui se présentent à nous.
Jean-Sébastien Truchy performe à Montréal depuis 1996. La philosophie bouddhiste, la littérature et le cinéma inspirent la manière dont il conçoit, élabore et orchestre ses compositions. Son travail s’inspire notamment de la notion de vide et de sa dualité intrinsèque. Il vise à créer une musique qui explore et met des concepts au défi, autant dans sa forme musicale que linguistique. Il souhaite déstabiliser son public et le confronter aux idées préconçues qui structurent notre quotidien. JS Truchy construit ses pièces à partir de voix et d’instruments électroniques, dans la continuité du travail de création qu’il poursuit depuis plusieurs années.

practice is an investigation of the capability of sound to induce different transcendental states of awareness and being. through a series of noise sets, practice explores the experiential application of theories underpinning the transformational properties of sound, such as cymatics, music therapy, sound healing, brain entrainment, and binaural-beat perception.

each session features a noise artist, who, informed by their own knowledge of sound, creates a immersive set intended to bend consciousness. listeners are encouraged to embrace a receptive, meditative attitude during sets.

we don’t mind if you’re new or old to noise or meditation.
if you’re curious to be engaged, to open yourself to new experiences and to hear some noise, then join us.


we have yoga mats available to use and listeners are invited to bring their own sitting paraphernalia if they please.

never apart is a non-profit organization in montréal, québec, canada, determined to bring about social change and spiritual awareness through cultural programming with global reach and impact.
