From the end of July we are going to be transmitting to the entire world. We`ve taken a big `gulp` and will be live streaming some of our Sound Immersions.
It has always been an issue as to whether recorded or electronically communicated sound has the same `power` as being in the true presence of the gongs. Up to now we have resisted making recordings of sessions but we are giving in to pressure to have some recordings available. A nice piece of research has found that listening to a sound meditation from a CD has the power to create an altered state of consciousness very close to that of live sound, although it will not be the same experience.
Once we decided to take this step, it was only a short hop to live streaming too. Coupled with setting intent, there is no reason that a positive outcome cannot be obtained in this way. In addition, there is a probability of quantum synchronicity connecting a network linked by intent.
OK, after all those big words, it means that anyone can log into our player on the `Live` page of chironuk.com at the appointed times. There is a button for donating an exchange in order to set up an energy flow from which we will all benefit. Make yourself comfortable, with headphones or ear-buds, and get ready to receive.
Raw recordings, with no editing, will be available on the Mixlr Showreel for a short while afterwards. Cleaned-up versions will be available as downloads to purchase in the near future.
Do be aware that the live streaming will be a fully inclusive soundscape, including shuffling, creaking, coughing, sneezing, snoring, outside traffic, sirens, car alarms and nearby cockerels!
