Welcome to the home of Zorg's Didjital Sound Journeys!
Not long ago I wondered what it would sound like to have a large number of didjeridoos all circling around in the stereo field with their sound waves alternately reinforcing and interfering with each other. So I recorded this piece which has twelve(!) didjeridoos, six of which move with different kinds of "Brauer motion" and the other six which move with "normal" panning in different phases.
I called it "In The High Spaces", partly because although there's a huge amount of low sounds, my focus while playing was actually on creating a sonic space for the much higher harmonics - in particular there's a major third harmonic that sits in the spaces created by the lower sounds. I experience that as the sound of the angels
Yes, it's time to start thinking about Burning Man 2018! Among other things, last year I did several sessions at Camp Mystic in collaboration with Lucia Light #3, and this year we may do that again, plus more!
So far, my schedule for the week is in flux, apart from definitely playing didj in support of Rinara Shar's Kundalini Yoga class in Camp Contact on Thursday morning 9am-11am (and several drumming events, but that's another story). I'm currently in the process of scheduling more events, including an hour-long didj journey at Opulent Temple!
If you know of a camp that would like to host some didj for Kundalini Yoga, sound journeys, snuggle parties, sonic chill for after dance/parties, etc etc HMU! I would also be especially interested in playing for a "Cosmic Chanting" event. For more on that, see http://www.cosmicenlightenment.org/TBD2.html
I have begun offering a new kind of Didjital Sound Journey in collaboration with teachers of Yoga and related practices. For further details see my Kuṇḍalinī Yoga page.
Sweet's Ballroom in Oakland is one of my favorite venues. It has been an honor to offer sound healing at the end of Ecstatic Dance there three times in recent months! The sound engineers there always make the didj sound cosmic!
It was a profound joy to take part in the " Enlightenment Via Music, Kirtan, Feelings & Energetic Awakening" sādhana retreat in Florida in April. So many wonderful people, so many great musicians, and such an inspiring community!
It has also been a great joy to offer Didjital Sound Journeys for pregnant moms. Babies in the womb are especially sensitive to deep bass sounds, and I LOVE it when the moms report that it feels as if their babies really like the sound of the didjeridoo, and the moms find it very relaxing too! It was also a great joy to visit a friend's house who has an infant boy, and to discover that he was able to fall asleep to the sound of the didjeridoo while he was in a chair that he had never been able to sleep in before. Happiness all round!
