 Dear Friends in Sound & Silence –
Summer Heat and the Intense Flow are in full swing.  Sound Healing is happening everywhere.  The space around us is excited to be engaged in being engaged.  
And how awesome is it that sound is space !  … Hummmm …. now off to Open our Minds for tomorrow night’s sound ceremony !
With a little over a month left this time around, for me, in the Ottawa Area – I have as promised filled my schedule with as many offerings as I could carry.  I’m sure there’ll be a few more yet !
Of note is that I’ve rescheduled the sound healer’s training – to mid august – it’s already filling up – a great weekend of immersion into sacred sound.  As part of the training all in attendance shall join the guided visualization on the Sunday morning with myself and Doug Henderson – Opening to the Inner Senses
Also, Sills & Smith” are going into the studio next week to begin recording a 5th Album – that’s myself & Frank Smith – and yes that’s right ! Number Five !! – All four of the previous studio albums were financially produced without any outside support, and this time around we are asking YOU !  Please check out our indigogo campaign and raise some money to put towards the costs of producing this upcoming release.  It is going to be an incredible musical journey ! There’s many gifts and perks to be found in the campaign !  Including having a song written for you !  Album Due out in October 2015.
8-8-8 is coming up fast which coincides with my next concert evening at the Dunrobin Sonic Gym with Johannes Welsch.  Johannes recorded the last concert we performed in June and shall do so again on August 8th – and from the two evenings we shall produce an outstanding CD to have the Symphony of Sound (SOS) go with you wherever you go !  We will be taking pre-orders at the show.
The Chakra series continues through August – and there will be a concert with myself & Naomi Athena aka Raven & The Light Tree – Full Moon August 28th – at Pineridge Healing Centre !!

Please scroll down for a full listing of events !
PS – We are heading back to Peru mid September to get ready for our own next intensive retreat.  Before that, Naomi Athena & Carolina Dowell of Tree of Light Retreats are organizing an amazing women’s retreat in the jungle – please check it out and share with any women you feel may benefit from this kind of healing retreat community & sisterhood.

Dunrobin Sonic Gym – Friday, June 19, 2015 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM – Dunrobin, ON

Ticket Information – Buy your tickets Online – CA$25.00

symphony of sound june 19th 2015 jeremy sills johannes welschSound Mystic Jeremy Sills and Percussionist Johannes Welsch have mesmerized audiences at the Sonic Gym for half a decade with a concert program entitled SYMPHONY OF SOUND.

The SYMPHONY OF SOUND (SOS) consists of a number of fascinating soundscapes around the insight that crystal singing bowls and symphonic gongs are powerful sonic catalysts for each other. Experts have maintained that these soundscapes are setting a standard in musical expression through the use of idiophones!

While considered a music shaman and sound mystic by many open-minded people who subscribe to the idea of sound healing, multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Sills’ university education in composition becomes evident listening to the SOS. Sills and Welsch neither recite a composition nor do they improvise exclusively, they much rather perform a powerful, deep ritual carefully crafted over years of musical collaboration at the Sonic Gym. To this percussionist Johannes Welsch adds the results of a lifelong exploration of rhythm and sound, beginning at the age of seven. Symphonic gongs became the center of his attention a quarter century ago. Some critics consider his album Sound Creation, released 2012 on Deep Listening Label, a quintessential recording of Paiste gongs.

Above all this music is carried by a deep understanding and appreciation of the voice of the other, an intuitive familiarity with each others sonic vocabulary. These soundscapes thrive on the fact that the duo is the only human group in which the number of relationships is smaller than the number of individuals. Throughout the evening listeners can expect to be mesmerized by this artistic unison underlying the complex sonic tapestry Sills and Welsch seem to generate effortlessly in a performance best described by its title: SYMPHONY OF SOUND.

Sills & Smith enter “Where You’ll Find It” in CBC Music Searchlight contest 

(Ottawa, March 22, 2015) Sills & Smith band of Ottawa has entered the CBC Music Searchlight 2015 contest. The song that they’re showcasing is “Where You’ll Find It”,  a powerful classic/progressive rock track that explores the issue of mental illness.

The tune opens the band’s 4th, full-length studio album Etched. “Where You’ll Find It” has been entered in the Ottawa area under the CBC radio All In A Day program (91.5 FM), so you will be hearing it on CBC during the contest. To listen online and vote for the song, go to the Sills & Smith CBC Music page, give the track a spin below the Searchlight icon and select Vote for This Artist: http://music.cbc.ca/#!/artists/Sills-Smith Voting starts on March 30th.

“Where You’ll Find It” is featured on the Sills & Smith CBC Music page, along with the painterly YouTube music video created by David Duchow with his photography: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMOLQLZMuPo

Sills & Smith is an independent band, that has delivered its unique sound and style across four critically acclaimed albums. The group includes core members, singer-songwriters Frank Smith (words, music), Jeremy Sills (music). The Etched album and “Where You’ll Find It” were recorded and produced by Phillip Victor Bova, at Bova Sound in Ottawa.

The 13 tracks on Etched address social justice and the triumphs and tragedies of the human experience to a hard-driving, guitar-based sound —  rich in melody. The music is a genre bending and blending stew that touches on alternative folk, classic rock and progressive rock. “Where You’ll Find It” features the excellent studio band rocking out, with Phil Bova (electric bass), T. Bruce Wittet (drums), Don Wallace (electric guitar), Kevin Breit (electric guitar), Jeremy Sills (acoustic guitar). Jeremy and Frank share vocals on this melodic, layered track.

Check out “Where You’ll Find It” and vote for the song throughout the CBC Searchlight contest. For further information about the music of Sills & Smith — including full songs streaming, music videos, retailers for the albums — visit these websites:

PRESS

“Sills and Smith have made Etched an obvious labour of love, and this effort permeates the entire album.”  Tristin Norenberg-Goodmanson, Earshot – The National Campus Community Radio Report

“Smith pens the words and music, and Sills composes music for the contributing musicians (eight in total on Etched). The terrifically well-played compositions really accentuate the vocals, which are surprisingly good at times (e.g. “A Love For All Seasons”)…the songs are very catchy.”  Tristin Norenberg-Goodmanson, Earshot – The National Campus Community Radio Report

“Friday Find: Sills & Smith – For those who like: no nonsense rock music. I’ve featured Ottawa’s Sills & Smith several times in the past. However, I realized that I hadn’t done anything on their fourth album, 2014’s Etched. You should listen to it. It is good!”  Peter Kearns, Snob’s Music

Dear Friends in Sound,
I can hear a definite Zoooooooom to this Summer.  Must be in the gallop of this great horse we are co-creating with ! – and so yes indeed, this ride has come around to our final month of events here in the Ottawa Area before heading back down to Peru to continue our studies and training there.  And so in old-fashioned last-minute get-er-done fashion, we have organised a few concerts, meditations, dances, and a sound healer’s training intensive – all to take place in the next 3 1/2 weeks before we leave for the winter come mid-September !
Now while i go rest up for the days ahead, 😉 please browse this email or see my events page for something you or a friend might be interested in !

Dear Friends in Sound,

Care to Listen ?

Listen Carefully ?

Care is the word we use to invite and/or demonstrate that we are in this moment – conscious of our actions – and it implies that these actions are healthy within the limitations of the knowledge available to us in this given moment.  When it comes to listening, we are re-mind-ed that everything resonates, and that in order for us to tune into the music around, without, and within us – we need take care – just take it ! – and so listen carefully to the other person – or dive into that piece of music that someone cares for us to hear – and so stretch our ears across the entire surface of our body and become the Great Receiver & Transmitter of carefully chosen frequencies ! Om…

Dear Sonic Traveller,

What goes up must come down; frequency, pitch, the pendulum, a baseball – the waxing moon approaches fullness and creates the illusion that things are going up !  Up in tempo, faster rhythms, more of everything all at once, faster heart beat, quick shallow breath – as all of the waters within our precious body feel a pull towards the heavens and an excitement for the coming Leo Love Full Moon! – ARTISTIKA – a time to celebrate with our loved ones, our beloveds, the beloved, and surrender to the UP ! in anticipation of it’s complete release into the stillpoint within each moment – always available, though not always accessible – the eye of the storm…. seeking the bright star in the dark night … a complete lullaby for the soul :

     Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.Then the traveller in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.In the dark blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye,
‘Till the sun is in the sky.As your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the traveller in the dark.
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
How I wonder what you are.

Have a listen to their music here – http://hudost.bandcamp.com/ – Full Details of the concert below – A night surely to open your hearts !And all in divine timing …. our CD has arrived just in time for SAMHAIN … a day of proximity to the ethers within which we live each and every day … and a night to celebrate and invite that light to our conscious awareness … through sound … and silence … come celebrate !  If you were part of our 44 Main St. Samhain Celebration a few years back, you’ll recall how magical, creative and unique the energy was that night !Myself and my partner Naomi Athena have put together a powerful journey and soundscape created over the course of a year in between our travels down South to Peru. It was created with much love and intention as well as with about 40 different instruments. We are so excited to share it with you and hope you will enjoy it !We are throwing our CD release Concert November 1st. Less then Two weeks away. We really need help spreading the word and would be blessed and grateful for your support in any shape or form!  Full details below, or on website, and FB

@ ECCLESIAX SANCTUARY 2 Monk St. Ottawa, ON

The Concert will take place on Samhein which is one of the most celebrated times across the planet as a time when the veil between worlds thins. A time that is celebrated all over the world as a time of gathering, prayer, ceremony, ritual and celebration. It was in prechristian times the biggest and most significant holiday of the Celtic year. A time that symbolizes the end of harvest and the beginning of winter. A New Year.

It is a wonderful and very powerful time to gather with intention and welcome the presence of winter and its womb like nature. To honor life and death and its cycle and honour all those who walked before us and welcome the light of the other world into ours.

Come join us for an evening of intention to the soundscape of crystal and Tibetan bowls, gongs, Peruvian flutes and whistling vessels,vocal harmonics, throat singing and resonance. Bring your beautiful selves and voices to share.

We would be so honored if you would join us!

Living Sound,
Jeremy Sills & Naomi Athena
