The Stillsound Concert Experience

The Stillsound Concert Series offers music experiences as communal and profound as group meditation. Each concert begins with a 30-minute silent meditation in which musicians and listeners sit together. This enables us to open ourselves to the sonic landscape, and the performance itself becomes an extension of our meditation practice.

Each event concludes with a short discussion, in which performers may speak about the mindfulness practices they bring to composition, improvisation, and performance. Afterwards, we will have time to linger, have tea, and be together.

The Stillsound Concert Series features a variety of traditional and contemporary musical genres. Please read about our upcoming concerts below (all dates 2016).
