Senses of the Solstice


Join us at Olana for an afternoon sound experience to celebrate the Winter Solstice. Revel in the meditative views of Olana’s artist-designed landscape while enjoying 30-minute outdoor performances by b e i n g - s o u n d, a collaborative interdisciplinary project between sound artists Joro-Boro and Keena.Maya. In their performances, b e i n g - s o u n d incorporates a variety of sound sources to open listeners to the wonders and mysteries hidden in everyday life. During this interactive experience, visitors will be invited to sip tea and explore subtlety in their five senses while taking in Olana’s spectacular views. Usher in a new season through this free binaural headphone sound experience. This performance will take place outdoors about 1 mile from the parking lot. Please wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather.

Event is free, advanced registration is required.

b e i n g - s o u n d explores the intersection of place, presence, listening, and relating - to oneself, to others, and to the non-human world. b e i n g - s o u n d creates time-based experiential art, sound/video installations, interactive experiences, bass meditations, tea/ambient rituals, and DJ sets. Being as sound and silence, being as stillness and movement. To learn more, visit being-sound.com.
