Sonic Spectrum and Poetic Silhouette at Chiayi, Taiwan

October 18, 2012 from 7pm to 9pm
The twentieth century constituted a watershed of new vocal and sonic arts, and brought voices from distant times and places closer than ever before. And yet, in the twenty-first century the voice still retains its secrets. Vocalist Mark van Tongeren returns to the simple question: how does the naked voice of a single human being sound, when we strip everything away from it? As it turns out, a voice never comes alone. With his current theme The Polyphony of the Body, van Tongeren exposes the…See More

ha Mark,

Goeie vlucht gehad? Mijn opleiders die ook regelmatig contact hebben in Taiwan zijn benieuwd of je als zij weer een keer daar zijn dan wel in de Volksrepubliek contact mogen zoeken met jou.

Breng straks je boek en cd naar de bieb. Inderdaad bijzondere cd,gaat dwars door het hoofd heen soms.

Ik vond het een erg leuk bezoek aan jou en je zus.

met vriendelijke groet,

Frits de Wolff

Thanks for the welcome. I am a believer in the healing power of Harmony. For the past 15 years I have experimented with engineering harmonic overtones in order to alter consciousness and effect healing. I invite you to sample these "Harmonics for Health" - I experience this music as a 'theo-active' adventure.

Enjoy these Free Downloads:
