It was 5pm on a forzen Sunday evening in NYC at the Bowery Hotel. Outside a wet wintery mix of precipitation and wind made the city frigged and harsh. Inside Sonic Attunement (PjOE, Malia Kulp & Jessica Caplan) and Ally Bogard of The Path provided a warm and loving container to thaw out and dive deep into the self with a mixture of sacred sound and guided meditation. The sound journey meditation consisted of deep sub waves, binaural beats, tuning forks, singing bowls, vocals and analog synth cascades with the spoken word leading the group deep into the moment. At the end of the guided meditation the Sonic Attunement crew created an impromptu flow of improvised music that built up the energy just rite for Atish to take get the dance floor moving. Enjoy the recording below…
Coming to Iceland for the Secret Solstice Festival was quite the adventure. The scene was 24 hours of sunlight… Seven days and no nights. Time stood still and reality blended into infinite moments along the forever days.
We would have to say that The Secret Solstice Festival was quite the success all around. Not only was it another great show from REAL EYES, it was also the freshman year for the festival and might we say, job WELL done. The music world no doubt will see many more years to come for this awesome Icelandic treat.
The event production was flawless and the festival revelers from all corners of the globe were eager for the list of topnotch international talent. REAL EYES joined the festival roster along side of Massive Attack, Disclosure, Banks, Gluteus Maximus, Jamie Jones and Damian Lazarus with Rebelrave to name only a few of the 150 acts.
REAL EYES played the second largest of five sound stages to an excited and energetic audience. They brought the crowd on an hour and forty minute journey, through mostly new, unreleased improvised material and some favorite live remixed tracks. Re-IN-Joy…
A huge major thanks goes out to Fred, Krisjian & the whole Secret Solstice team, Jon, Haukur and Skapti from Hljodx (www. Hljodx.is) for an amazing sound system and support on stage, Elifer and Alex from Snark Films (www.snark.is) for the amazing cinemaphotography and of corse our team at Avant Muse.
REAL EYES brought this years Gratitude*NYC event, Cosmic Mirrors, to new levels with a live deep house journey that inspired house music fans to the last drop.
For this year’s PEX Summer Festival PjOE was invited to lead a special sound meditation for the last evening of the festivities. it was the perfect opportunity to share The Sonic Atunement Sound Journey Meditation experience. Oliver Halsman Rosenberg joined in with his array of singing bowls and other sonic tools into the fold with PjOE’s specialized tuning forks, bells and electronics (Ableton Live and analog synths). Together the pair held a powerful sound space for the participants to go deep into meditation. Post event we interviewed some of the participants about their experience, the feedback was powerful. Enjoy the live recording of the experience, feel free to download and share.
About The Performance
The set up was a blended weaving of analog and digital improvisation. Collectively the project implemented 14 singing bowls, 3 sets of tuning forks, bells, chimes, jaw harp, Access TI Polar keyboard, Ableton Live, Omnisphere, iPad touch screen controllers, Bossa Bass module, AKAI MPC40, Apollo UAD Quad Core, a MacBook Pro, PjOE & Oliver’s vocal stylings and some other odds and ends.
All of the tonal instruments (synthesizers, software plugins, etc.) are tuned to 432hz, which is thought to be more in tune with cosmic resonance.

Big thanks to the PEX folks for providing us an amazing space to explore…
BangOn! NYC presented New York with a real treat at a truly epic, never before used landmark location. REAL EYES made sure to match. Introducing the long forgotten Red Hook Grain Terminal. The facility was built in 1922, closed in 1965 and forgotten until BangOn! brought it new life and a completely different twist on use. Elements Festival boasted four stages, Earth, Water, Fire and Air. REAL EYES took the water stage on an acclaimed journey from day, past the sunset and into night. Enjoy the live recording of the duo’s debut live set, chock full of keyboards, live edits, original sounds and vocals…
