Soundwork: positive music and sound  

July 2020


Dear soundworkers and music lovers around the world. We are in an evolutionary time. Here in America, it may also be a revolutionary time.


Now are the seeds of renaissance, where artists and visionaries help guide cultures into newer, greater ways of being. We've entered the time of deep listening and asking, “What is called for and needed?”


As soundworkers, our music, rhythms, frequencies and heartspace are called for and needed.


Everywhere, people are in multi-layered epidemics and music has always served as a primary antidote for social cohesion.


This is a new time for shedding old identities, learning new skillsets, seeking silver linings, being alert and of service.


In 2020–during the age of coronavirus, climate change, systemic racism, income inequity, amoral politicians, and unbridled technologyseven billion sisters and brothers are looking and listening for a new wholeness.
