About the event

Immerse yourself in sonic bliss, surrounded by 50+ Gongs and various other overtone rich instruments skillfully played by the fleeting Tamburo Ensemble, a pop-up gong band from Mike's Fun with Gongs Workshop!   Don't miss this Workshop Grand Finale which can be described as an adventure in listening, a deep and lasting vibrational rejuvenation for body and spirit, a profound aesthetic experience, a moving symphony for 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, blankets, and bolsters available in case you forget or don't have any.

About the Ensemble:

Here today, gone tomorrow, this creative ensemble is a pop-up Gong Band comprised of Mike Tamburo and the students from his 5-day Gong Exploration Workshop in Seattle, which concludes on March 19.

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.
