VOICE-

............The Art of Singing Rests upon the Deeper Understanding of the Art of Listening............

The Singing Body is essentially a spiritual body

it understands directions of the physical body, to open space within the resonating body,

it understands to hold tone close to our centre

it focuses in tune with the personal intention behind the tone....and so.....we create music.

The human spirit sings.

The Singing Body is the Human Spirit celebrating itself and creation

Analog Sea - The Offline Ball

Villa Tobler Zurich 22. June from 20:30

All becomes clear in our relations to ourselves through our relation to our voice and its presence in the world. 

In giving tone we connect to space and become intimately in resonance with that which is around us.

In the singing body - the energies flow freely, not chaotic and unchecked but channeled.

The human is in deep relation with the inner and outer worlds
