bAUM Sessions

 

We are moved by and made of vibrations.

 

bAUM is an acoustic string and drum instrument for experiencing acoustic resonance throughout the body. An instrument for tuning the whole self, for releasing hidden tensions and opening intuition.

 

A bAUM session combines drum travel, voice toning and string resonance. As the experiencer lays comfortably on the sound bed, the strings and drum are sounded, emitting wave-like sensations throughout the body. This experience can induce a a dream-like state of deep relaxation.

 

Made in collaboration with Patrick Dallard in 2016, bAUM has previously been exhibited in Rymd Konstrum and Candyland Gallery, Stockholm. bAUM sessions developed during an artist residency at Långsjö Teatre as part of Julia Adzuki's MA in New Performance Practices at DOCH / Stockholm University of the Arts.
