The Body and the Power of Sound: Andrea Brook & Suzanne Sterling perform at the Athenaeum.
The Body and the Power of Sound, featuring Andrea Brook playing the Earth Harp, will be a free event from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Athenaeum in Indianapolis on November 9th, as part of the 2011 Spirit and Place Festival. The unique, large-scale instrument allows the audience to sit underneath the strings (strung from the stage to the balcony) and experience the distinctive longitudinal frequencies and vibrations.
In addition to Brook’s performance, Suzanne Sterling will demonstrate how individuals can use their own bodies as powerful instruments through vocalization. They will lead the audience in the experiences of using the power of sound, music and signing to heal and unite our bodies. The external (Earth Harp) and internal (vocalization) sonic vibrations and frequencies are purported to promote healing and a sense of wellness.
Bring a yoga mat to practice beneath the strings of the Harp—seated meditation, free-style practice or long savasana. There will also be a section of chairs available.
The event will be presented by Growing Places Indy Be Well Initiative, Wishard Health Services, the Athenaeum, Invoke Yoga and Pilates Studio, Cityoga School of Yoga and Health
