The Yoga of Sound

In Vak Song of Becoming, Ann Dyer employs mantra to cultivate performative, sonic, and embodied healing. With a handful of professional singers and a lion's share of amateurs, they plumb the depths of the ancient use of song to connect to one another and to humanity. Happy to finally be sharing this one and the simple power of our voices!

Pointing Twice

We enjoyed capturing a one time performance at YBCA in San Francisco of this unique music/dance collaborative performance by Polish composer Jaroslaw Kapuscinski with Korean guest choreographer Young-Doo Jung and Canadian instrument designer John Granzow, who custom-built a gramophone for the piece! The piece is inspired by Anton Webern’s 1934 masterwork Concerto for Nine Instruments and features San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and conductor Steven Schick.
