About the experience:

A soundbath is an immersive listening experience. Participants are invited to lay back as sound artist MJ Caselden engages the group in a wash of sound. The project is an exploration of energy flow and vibration, and resultant impact on mood and consciousness.

MJ uses a series of custom sound-generating sculptures, transducing energy from digital algorithms into magnetic fields, inducing vibration in wood and metal, and projecting the vibrations as sound across the listening space.
