About the event

Enter a timeless space of listening as Crown of Eternity’s Mike Tamburo and blosm studio's Roger Tjoelker weave sonic soundscapes, navigating through a musical conversation. Together they’ll explore their way through a wide array of 50+ overtone rich instruments including Gongs, Bells, Sound Sculptures, Hammered Dulcimer, and more. The possibilities include an adventure in listening; sonic bliss; a deep and lasting vibrational rejuvenation for body, mind, and spirit; a profound aesthetic experience; a journey through the senses, and a perceptual rollercoaster. Allow yourself to be still and listen.

The sound meditation is usually experienced lying down on your back or a similar comfortable position, however you can be seated if you prefer.  Wear comfortable clothing and bring whatever you need to be relaxed for the meditation - yoga mat, blanket, pillow, water, eye mask, bolster, etc.  The studio also has some mats and blankets available in case you forget or don't have any.

About the players:

Mike Tamburo is a world-renowned musician, composer, artist and educator. He is known and loved for his transformational live concerts performed on his personally curated set of gongs, bells and other metal instruments.  A lifelong multi-instrumentalist, Tamburo has focused his talents on metal percussion instruments, string instruments (hammered dulcimer, guitar, zither, shahi baaja), as well as electronic instruments (synths, looping).

Since 1994, Tamburo has shared more than 2,000 concerts and workshops. He has recorded over 70 albums, both solo and in collaboration with Crown of Eternity, Meisha, Arco Flute Foundation, Psychic Frost, Brother Ong and more, ranging from epic gong music to ecstatic and transcendental string music, as well as folk, drone, space rock, ambient, mantra music and sometimes unclassifiable sounds. This man loves music in all its forms!

He teaches gong music, both in person and online with School of Gong. He is also a part of the far-reaching ethnomusicology trio, Dig Deeper, with Mitch Nur and Thomas Orr Anderson. Their online classes have explored countless musical concepts with a focus on the cultural and personal uses of sound for healing, meditation, trance, ecstatic states, relaxation, self transformation, perception, psycho-acoustics, scientific discovery, time and community.

An early adoptee of meditation, Tamburo’s music offers space for journeying, self-exploration and deep introspection. During many of his early performances, he experienced altered states of consciousness and out of body experiences. To understand these experiences, he explored kundalini yoga, energy work, the therapeutic use of sound and how sound impacts consciousness, human perception and self healing. His love for long sustained drones, overtones and psychoacoustics continues to inspire him to explore music in further directions.

Tamburo is also an interdisciplinary sound artist, instrument builder, video artist, sound therapist, writer and meditation teacher.

Roger Tjoelker, founder of Transformative Sound and blosm studio is a professional gong player and a Transformational Breath® Group Leader. Formerly a corporate CFO, he first heard the gong played well at a Transformational Breath® Seminar and instantly knew that he had to learn to play and bring this amazing sound energy to others. He also continued training with Transformational Breath® and became a certified facilitator and group leader.  He offers people the opportunity to cultivate their well-being with Gong Sound Immersions and as well as Transformational Breath® classes at blosm studio in Seattle.
