Days of Action and Dialogue: SONIC MEDITATION

The Purchase community and public are invited to come together for an inclusive gathering to listen to stories, meditate, and self-reflect. This event will center around the late composer, Pauline Oliveros's, "Tuning Meditation”, a "sonic meditation and tuning of the mind and body" which encourages those gathered to listen deeply, meditate on sound, and utilize listening as activism.

Buy Tickets

The Scheherazade Project (TSP) takes its inspiration from the feminist icon Scheherazade, who uses well-known tales to suit her needs, saving her own life as well as the lives of thousands of women from a virgin-killing king in the classical Persian story One Thousand and One Nights. Reimagined through a contemporary western "lens", (TSP) conceives a disillusioned dictator wooed by media stories, slowly immersed into the realm of the screen where "reality" and "fiction" become indiscernible.  Indie-rock duo HOLLANDS and string quartet PUBLIQuartet integrate rock ‘n’ roll and classical music, merging electronic and acoustic genres via original song and improvisations that pay homage to Rimsky- Korsakov's symphonic poem Scheherazade. Set alongside live storytelling and multi-channel video projections by Iranian-American artist Amy Khoshbin, (TSP) was commissioned by a 2015 Mpower Grant awarded by the Sphinx Organization and Music Assistance Fund.

Curated and Co-presented by The New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival and National Sawdust as part of the New York Philharmonic's Biennial Celebration.
