Transcendent Waves: How Hearing Shapes Our Creative Lives
By Lavender Saurez
How can thoughtfully and intentionally listening to our world expand and inform our creative practices? What insights can we gain when we delve into the immersive world of sound, which permeates our every moment? In Transcendent Waves, sound healing practitioner, meditation teacher, and artist Lavender Suarez outlines how listening can unlock moments of creative spark, self awareness, and calm in a work that is equal parts how-to guide and contemplative artist's workbook. Suarez's illustrated meditations follow in the artistic tradition of Yoko Ono's Grapefruit and the creations of the Fluxus group, but also offer a modern take on listening in a world that gets louder every day. Covering everything from the noise of everyday life to musical compositions, Transcendent Waves compiles scientific evidence, anecdotes, and thoughtful prompts to spark a sense of wonderment and appreciation for the intricacies of sound and the new perspectives it can bring to our daily creative worlds.
