Intuitive Musical Readings for Healthcare Patients
Category: Motivation / Inspiration
For the past 2 decades I have been experimenting with ways to musically express the internal mind-body-spirit state of a person. These 'intuitive musical readings' facilitate a state in which the patient can more readily access their innate healing energy through the calming of the mind and the entrainment of the heart through sympathetic resonance.
My improvisations contain many stylistic influences including classical, Celtic, Indian, European and Asian. Each unique piece of music incorporates a variety of techniques, progressions and patterns. Any given composition features multiple rhythmic structures and thematic developments. Though my intent is to create a cohesive musical experience, I respond to the energetic influence of the moment.
The musical reading often conjures images of people, place and time. One person may perceive an encounter with ancestral gypsy music, while another internally dances an Irish jig. The viola allows for a variety of sonic effects, all of which conspire to bring into musical form a performance which is energetically sympathetic with the person who is experiencing and interacting with the reading.
