Immersed is a global event series around music, health and technology. Each episode they bring together artists, scientists, practitioners and technologists to explore how deep immersive music and sound can optimally impact us, individually and collectively.
Next up in the immersed mix series, where they ask artists to take us on an intimate journey to self through sound: Pheek!
Enjoy this beautiful selection titled, "The Healing Path"
Notes from the Creator:
"I recorded this one shot, live on a very difficult day. In 1998, I first started having panic attacks. The only thing that would help would be to sit and listen to ambient music. It would bring me to life. I think that after all that time of making music, the ultimate goal would be to make music to soothe me.
In 2016 when my father passed away, I recorded music everyday for 8 months. It kept me sane and I ended up making a 2h long ambient album that was a first catharsis. Today I feel will be listening to this with a positive memory. I find that I explored from subtle spaces to more intense moments."
