What is a sensory experience?

How is it that we can have these sensory experiences through therapeutic sound?

Exploring the answer to these questions, sound artist and curator Tessa Ann from The Sound Healing Spa will deliver her innovative performance-style sound experience merging healing sound instruments, electronic compositions, and captivating visuals to take you on an immersive auditory voyage at the Sonic Lab, a hub of the Sonic Arts Research Centre.

This truly immersive experience is made possible through collaborative effort on composition with research partner Dr Isaac Gibson.

This exploration includes references from Tessa’s previous ‘Magical Sounds’ discussion at the NI Science Festival 2023 with Dr. Trevor Agus on musical acoustics and human perception of therapeutic sound.

Additional information about this event: 

With the potential to perceive sound through other senses, as part of this unique performance event, you are invited to embrace the freedom to sit, recline, move or wander throughout the immersive sound space, allowing you to connect with and respond to the sounds intuitively.

Listening to sound may also inspire creativity and encourage introspection, so bring a journal to write if you like.

Our meticulously crafted soundscape has been expertly tailored for the Sonic Lab’s remarkable array of over 40 speakers, promising an unparalleled audio experience.

For those of you familiar with ‘sound baths’, think of this a fluid sound bath experience.

More about SP-Ace 

The name SP-Ace has been inspired by the feedback from Individuals who attend my sound events.   Often reporting a variety of sensory experiences and perceptions as they listen to sound. 

These experiences include visualisations of colour, images, heightened hearing experiences, feeling sensations of sound vibration on the surface of the body and within the body.

SP = Sensory Perception 

A = Aesthesia – the ability to feel or perceive sensations

SP-Ace – The creative and experiential sound space environment

We invite you to enjoy your journey through SP-Ace. 

Additional notes:

The power of sound can connect us to body and place plays a role in our well being and situates our listening.

This sound experience combines Tessa’s carefully curated soundscape with instrumental sound associated with healing such as gongs, bowls, voice and other instruments.

Close your eyes, as you are guided through an experience of active listening through sound.
