Wellness Drone for 2018

A New Years Day sound-work by Dani Tull with guest vocals by Brian Randolph.

Utilizing 2 small vintage Farfisa Portorgans, artist Dani Tull will perform a binaural sound work within the illuminated chamber of the empty gallery.

Using the low-fi analog of non-digital instruments, Tull’s chord-organ performances are typically produced by sustaining and arranging notes that create a microtonal and harmonic ambient resonance. Special vocal contributions by artist Brian Randolph.

Start the new year right by dropping into a deep-listening sensory experience intended to restore and balance the inner and outer vibes.

Tea will be available, feel free to bring something soft to sit or lay down on.
