Sound Body

Music, Meditation, Yoga, and Art

Calling all lovers of music (particularly lovers of improv), practitioners of yoga/meditation/mindfulness, and/or curious community members in need of a winter retreat.

Circulus Arts and 3S Artspace are coming together to create Sound Body, a site-specific mindfulness workshop in the Gallery @ 3S Artspace. This series of Sunday afternoon retreats will feature improvisational jazz music, led by Jonny Peiffer, and will include meditation and movement by local practitioners Karly Nihal, Erin Ehlers, and Shelly Grande. Musicians and composers include: Jonny Peiffer (percussion), Zach Lange (trumpet), Matt Langley (saxes, bass clarinet), Eric Klaxton (saxes, clarinets), Mike Effenberger (electronics), Nick Phaneuf (bass, guitar, electronics), Chris Klaxton (trumpet), Josh Gagnon (trombone, low brass), Scott Kiefner (bass), Rob Gerry (bass), Jason Emmond (bass), and Nihco Gallo (mallet percussion).

This collaboration was conceived when musician Jonny Peiffer heard his bandmate Zach Lange warm up his trumpet in the 3S Gallery - the generous resonance of the space came alive and created a unique combination of sounds that seemed to grow, not dissipate. Peiffer immediately began to imagine a concert of music specifically composed for and performed in the 3S Artspace gallery. When he approached Beth Falconer, Executive Director, she was thrilled to help develop and support this program, as 3S is committed to cross-cultivating arts experiences by bringing performance into the gallery, and visual art to the whole facility.

What can you expect? Musicians will compose music designed for the unique sound properties of 3S Artspace?s gallery, while teachers across yoga, meditation and reiki disciplines lead participants in movement and mindfulness practice. Audiences will be invited to participate however they feel comfortable, merely as viewer, or to fully take on the meditation and movement guidance that is being provided. Yoga mats are optional for the January event, casual, comfortable attire recommended.

Sound Body is limited to 40 participants. Cost $20/pp.

Sound Body is a chance for audiences and participants to retreat into a space where everyone is nurtured and cared for, and invited to share that experience with everyone in their community when they leave, to take that experience and build on it, in their own way, which coincidently is how the jazz tradition has always worked.
