Cymbal Sound Bath Offering – 8/14/22 6:00 pm

Join the Friends of the Wendell Meetinghouse for an immersive sonic experience, offered by Matt Samolis, in the newly renovated building, Sunday Aug 14 at 6PM.  The sound that issues from his assemblage of bowed cymbals and tuned steel rods is at turns contemplative, awe inspiring and other-worldly. His method of practice effectively blends the harmonic and drone traditions, and is entirely acoustic. The result is a sound environment that is meditative and timeless, inviting the listener toward a stillness that is calming and rejuvenating. Matt has been generously donating his time and energy to the renovation of the Meetinghouse, and now he is offering his artistry as well. For more information and examples of Matt’s work, please visit https://mattsamolis.wordpress.com Matt is also the facilities manager for the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) in Barre. This event is offered free of charge. Donations are welcome and will be generously split with the Meetinghouse.
