In a time where modern lives are increasingly mediated by algorithmic isolation, many yearn for a deeper connection to both others and themselves through music. Against this backdrop, Denver’s 57-member avant-ceremonialists provide a dark take on proven decompression techniques each Sunday at 6 p.m. MST, beginning April 11th and running through May 16th.
This isn’t your typical guided meditation, however. The six-week sequence utilizes different brain-entrainment frequencies, stroboscopic visuals and structured breathwork to rest from the previous week and reset for the one ahead, all set to the cacophonic catharsis from the troupe’s Noise Division.
Each 30-minute livestream session provides a different “theme,” syncing varying alpha, beta and theta frequencies in binaural, monaural and isochronic arrangement with various open-eye and closed eye visualizations.
The result: An irreverent, accessible yet subversive, approach for those seeking a personal spiritual experience through sound and music, at any level of mediation experience, without the baggage or any general “ick”-factor of contemporary or antiquated dogma.
Sessions are preceded by some step-by-step instructions from itchy-O’s Hanguessa, the disembodied virtual avatar-host who serves as both scene-setter and spiritual simulacrum.
Practice begins promptly for the General Public at the top of the hour with “doors” opening 5 minutes prior; Patreon supporters at the $6+ level gain access to pre and post-session chat rooms that start 30 minutes prior and continue after. Itchy-O Patreon supporters also get access to other level-specific-mind-blowing perks.
