This years Fringe season is already at its half way mark and with so much going on you may find yourself in need of some meditation. What better way to leave that stress behind than by immersing yourself in the sounds and visuals of space?!

Orion Sound Bath is presented by Sacred Resonance founders Darren Curtis and Bradley Pitt. The experience is held in the cosy but remarkable planetarium at the University of South Australia Mawson Lakes campus. An intimate seating of just 45 has the audience reclining to look up at the eight metre domed ceiling, where a simulation of the night sky is projected by a rather impressive machine. The projector is analog, calibrated manually, and while it was installed in the 1970’s, the technology still surpasses that of modern (digital) projectors when it comes to star clarity.

A mini astronomy lesson pointing out the positions of Orion’s Belt, Orion Nebula and some well and lesser known stars is followed by an immersive sound and visual experience that will relax you into a deep meditation or even sleep.

Hear the raw sounds of Bellatrix, Saiph, Mintaka and celestial nebulae that have been recorded by NASA and expertly mixed into a dreamy sound bath by Darren and Bradley. Close your eyes or keep them fixed on the domed ceiling where the sound bath has been paired with stunning visuals of the galaxy and artistic renderings of sacred stone art from ancient cultures around the globe.

Sacred Resonance have absolutely succeeded in their endeavour to present a unique musical piece, based on natural resonate frequencies, that carries an entire audience to a peaceful state. Suitable for families, spiritual beings and anyone with interest in space. Take some time out of your busy weekend and escape to the stars this Sunday 3rd March. The Orion Sound Bath experience is scheduled at 2.30pm, 6.00pm and 8.00pm.
