Sonic Mandala:

Contemplation of a Mandala returns us from the illusion of individual existence into a way of living in resonance with the wholeness of nature. In music we can call this practice Sonic Mandala. In it we generate ostinatos of circularity that play in a synchronized sound weaving of space and motion. Patterns become like design, thought, dialogue, and forms in nature. These over time create momentum; an invitation to join in the shared experience of the lifted moment. ar
