The Continuing Relevance of Sound Work in a Post-Covid World
We’re living in revolutionary times as new paradigms emerge. As artists, this is a vital and inspiring time to develop and bring soundwork into re-forming cultures. Like all art, music and sound healing must adapt to an uncertain post-Covid world. Join Joshua Leeds in a discussion about sound medicine in these precarious times.
In This Session:
- How the practice of soundwork in a post-Covid world requires imaginative thinking, purposeful education, and new technologies for effective music & sound therapies
- Potent post-Covid soundwork techniques emerging from 15 current NIH research studies, as well as the understanding of frequency correspondences
- How Covid-19, economic collapse & social unrest relate with climate change & social justice – all indicative of a world out-of-balance
