Sonic Attunement with The Path @ Babel’s Dimanche

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…

 

 

REAL EYES Rocks Iceland for The Secret Solstice Festival

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.
