Sound has been used as means of communication and expression since life has been on earth – many people believe that the blocks that make up the pyramids were moved by harnessing the power of sound – and science is continually discovering new ways to utilise and focus it. Ultrasound devises are used in medicine to ‘see’ through the body, surgery and industry use ultrasonics as cutting tools and can cleanly and effortlessly cut through the toughest of materials. Just as an opera soprano can shatter a glass with her voice, there are many thousands of well documented cases of miraculous healings coming about through the medium of sound.
For centuries he voice has been used for healing, most native cultures use it for not just day to day communication between people but for connecting with the greater circle of life.
One voice on it’s own consists of the root note plus various harmonics which are individual to that persons voice and change with the facial shapes that they are making which changes the resonant chamber of their mouth. Their emotional state also plays a part in their sound. Then adding another voice with the first creates harmony with the two notes and their harmonics, the more the voices the richer the sound when singing in harmony.
I use sound to amplify the aliveness, the vibration of myself and teach people how to tune in to deeper levels of love, aliveness and connection. Singing utilises the four main aspects of embodiment, awareness, sound, breath and movement and I continuously see that people singing together creates instant community and communion.
Both alone and in collaboration, I run conscious harmony singing events exploring sound, harmony and presence.
Alchemy of Intimacy and Voice
This is a fun experiential workshop exploring intimacy with the moment, with ourself and intimacy with our world. Weaving this with vocal sound and harmony – using sound as an expression of our inner landscapes and using harmony to expand our sense of self and out connection with life. Tuning into the ocean of presence, sound and song that is our life force.
