Creative Vocal Sound Meditation

March 6, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Exploring and developing one’s voice is a great way to improve self confidence and relax. The Creative Vocal Sound Meditation is for people who love the sound of their own voice – or don’t! It provides a group context for participants to explore the expressive potential of their voice to whatever extent they’re comfortable, and unlock a joy and ease of being we’re so often taught to suppress.

Beginning with simple collective humming, free of any need to pitch our notes or sound beautiful, the workshop moves through different areas designed to gradually open us up internally, and appreciate the natural vibration of both body and air that vocalizing allows. With increasing freedom, participants are encouraged to explore voice and imagination more deeply, supported by others doing the same. Simple improvised games may be added depending on the energy of the group, to broaden and challenge our horizons.

Expect to leave a Creative Vocal Sound Meditation with a new appreciation for your voice and capacity to use it, along with a more grounded, inspired and flexible state of mind.

The next Creative Vocal Sound Meditation run by Kali Grey will be on Sunday January 6th at 11am JST.

Kali Grey is a musician, actor, composer and educator with a fascination for improvisation. Although she started playing the tenor saxophone, after attending music college she switched her attention to clarinet and now specialises in the rare contrabass clarinet. In 2007 she discovered improvised theatre, performing often with the Tokyo Comedy Store, and eventually became a teacher for their In The Moment workshop program. Kali is active in Tokyo creative scenes with various traditional and more experimental projects. These include her own Music for Humans workshop, which develops improvised music-making skills for beginner and experienced musicians alike, and The Song System YouTube channel, which combines acoustic and electronic music.
