27th August 2020 - King Street Studios Deep Listening Workshop 7.30 to 9.30 "Hi thank you for a wonderful entertaining and informative night ." "The first track was my favourite. Wow what a fantastic sound it was .. it gradually lifted you up transported you up and down then gently drifted away .. I saw colours of yellow green and red in this piece .. The second track transported you in to across the sea .. with the waves and the wind .. open to the elements it felt quite "wet" The last track I visualized as grey and gravel this was a horizontal piece.. nicely gentle although it finished to quickly." "The whole night was just very relaxing I was totally in there and oblivious to anything else .. totally drew me in ... The lighting show was just perfect to . That was my first experience of deep listening live and I hope to see it again. I did drift off a couple of times and had a few light bulb moment as it felt a very safe space but I soon came back to the sounds ."
