SOUND MEDITATION – Concert for all to sing along with

Markus Stockhausen plays solo flugelhorn and piano and in doing so invites all to improvise with their singing voices. It is not songs that are sung but rather the creation of a shared harmonious resonance. Moments of silence encourage a meditative mood. Sound resonates in the silence and silence is experienced during sound. We feel our inner soul being in a stronger way and our creativity is awakened. And most of all, it is a joy to contribute to the greater singing experience. It is also a journey to our true Self with the help of music – probably the most beautiful and direct way. Markus Stockhausen will give some guidance.

Kommentar einer Teilnehmerin der Klangmeditation beim Sing!fest in Bielefeld, 1. Juli 2016:

Gestern habe ich am Sing!fest in Bielefeld teilgenommen und möchte mich noch einmal ausdrücklich für den Raum zum Singen bedanken, den Sie geschaffen haben, es war ein sehr intensives Erlebnis. Ihre Musik hat mich sehr berührt, besonders auch das spontane Duo mit Kolja Simon.
Mich fasziniert es (und ich bin dankbar dafür, es auch selbst praktizieren zu können), dass Singen und Klang so ein wunderbarer Weg zur Präsenz im Sein sind.”
