Equinox Sound Journey with Sika
A potent way to enter your springtime in balance, influenced by the equal day and night of the equinox.
Journey on the waves of ancient sounds played live by Sika – morphed and mixed into powerful worlds within worlds
This Sound Journey begins with a short guided visualisation to set the scene.
Ancient instruments, didgeridoo, flute and drum with the natural sounds of wood, stone, shell and bone.
An epic adventure deep into a land that exists in magical realms. A Sound Journey that is more like an orchestrated soundtrack to your life’s movie.
Please bring something comfy to lie on, a blanket and cushion.
Sika is a Master Sound Artist based in New Zealand. He is dedicated to creating music and sound experiences that enhance our spiritual and human relationship with nature. Emerging into the UK festival scene 1993 Sika’s first events saw his audiences lying down with their eyes closed in what has now become globally accepted as a Sound Journey.
The didgeridoo forms an important foundation for his music, however he also uses drums, native flutes, voice, Maori instruments and more recently even orchestral elements. Pushing the limits of this musical genre, his live events and studio recordings serve to open our ears and really listen.
Giving voice to wood, skin, bone, stone and shell, his work reflects a lifetime of listening to the rhythms and sounds of nature. Life is a sound journey! Other sources of sound such as water, fire, trees, animals and wind are used with the intention to build soundscapes that enable us to journey within.
After years of gathering and making instruments, Sika has recorded eleven solo albums.
As a collection these projects tell the story of a man who has followed his yearning to create a life grown from the roots of the past, but sowing the seeds of the future.
