Meditation on Hildegard
Amanda Gookin, cello
David McCormick, medieval fiddle (viele)

This experiential performance integrates cello, medieval fiddle (viele), vibration, nature sounds, and the breath in a musically-guided meditation inspired by the mystical medieval writings and music of Hildegard von Bingen. Participants will be invited to listen deeply as they are led through a series of exploratory meditations to center the listeners energy as they focus their breath and reception to sound.

Each participant will receive a sample of oil inspired by Hildegards herbalism writings. Participants can breathe in the healing properties of herbs such as peppermint and rosemary while they settle into the warm vibrations of the cello and viele.

This session integrates Pauline Oliveros Deep Listening catalog in which active participants are encouraged to breathe and intone sound to, in Paulines words, calm the mind and bring awareness to the body and its energy circulation, and to promote the appropriate attitude for extending receptivity to the entire space/time continuum of sound.

This performance also marks the world premiere of seven meditations for viele by Ryan Keebaugh, composed for David McCormick in 2019.

All are welcome and participants are encouraged to dress comfortably and bring a pillow, blanket, or yoga mat. Listeners may also sit on a chair if necessary and are welcome to move or stretch during the experience.
