SEVEN DAYS OF SILENCE, LISTENING, SINGING, AND COMPOSING

Artists, programmers, accountants, and musicians gather for seven days of silence, listening, writing music, singing each other’s inspirations in private performances, and preparing and sharing meals.

We believe that everyone has the capacity to hear new music and bring it into this world. Through working in groups, each of us gains support and experience listening to internal inspiration, and communicating that inspiration to others. Experienced musicians challenge their own internal critics, and gain tools to work through creative blocks. Beginning musicians gain support and basic tools to write and share their own music.

The Assistants Tony Geballe, Dev Ray, and Craig Shepard draw from experience participating in and organizing Guitar Craft and Guitar Circle Courses, and creating as part of groups in Wandelweiser,  and the theater group La Compagnia de’ Colombari. Produced in cooperation with Angel Ludewig and Gabriela Suarez.

Contributions
To cover costs, we ask participants to contribute $850 for a single with a private bath or $695 for a double with a private bath. $55 discount if paid in full by September 30.
