New Hope Sound (E)Scape

New Hope Sound

Stone Mason Projects will be presenting New Hope Sound(e)scape, a day-long festival of introspective workshops and innovative music performances, on June 3rd, 2017, at The Event Center by Cornerstone in New Hope, PA. The festivities begin with a sound healing workshop at 12 noon, lead by New York-based sound healing artist and the director of Sounding Circles, Joule L’Adara. L’Adara, an experimental vocalist and opera singer who has performed with The Metropolitan Opera and as a soloist at Carnegie Hall, has also built a career as a sound healing bodyworker, workshop facilitator, public speaker, and soon-to-be author. Her group facilitation work is deeply influenced by Pauline Oliveros’ “Deep Listening” and “Sonic Meditations” - emphasizing listening as essential to communication and harmony. Her workshops feature her original 3-step facilitation method designed to unleash self-expression, creativity, and personal power through the voice. Joule is on the distinguished teaching faculty of the New York Open Center, a premier sound-healing practitioner at Integral Yoga Institute NYC and Brooklyn’s award- winning Green Spa. The day continues at 2 pm with a New Music Yoga class, which will culminate in the premier of a new composition for voice and electronics by composer Jenny Beck. Beck is currently a PhD candidate in the composition department at Princeton University. She has participated in workshops and festivals such as Copland House CULTIVATE Institute, the Norfolk New Music Workshop, Atlantic Center for the Arts Residency with Martin Bresnick, June In Buffalo, the Wellesley Composers Conference, the Tanglewood Music Center, and the Weill Music Institute Professional Training Workshop at Carnegie Hall with Kaija Saariaho and Anssi Karttunen. As a yoga instructor, Beck is the founder of Open Depth Yoga, and has taught in studios all across Philadelphia. The event culminates with a performance at 7:30 pm by Guided Imagery Opera, an innovative New York-based company spearheaded by founder and artistic director Joule L’Adara. Guided Imagery Opera’s mission is to present cutting-edge music-theater works that integrate the process of Guided Imagery in Music (The Helen Bonney Method of GIM) with sound meditation techniques incorporating therapeutic instruments and performed live by professional opera singers, actors and musicians. Guided Imagery Opera’s performances take audience members on an introspective, meditative journey towards clarity and self-discovery, incorporating improvisational techniques and original music composed for the group. All events are presented by Stone Mason Projects, a boutique production company founded and directed by classical singer and composer Pamela Stein Lynde. Stone Mason Projects specializes in endeavors related to new music for voice, and has been producing chamber music concerts, recording projects, music videos, new music commissions, and festivals since it’s inaugural performance at the National Opera Center in New York in 2015. Stone Mason Projects works closely with composers of new vocal music, bringing to life a vast array of artistic visions. Critics have said of Stone Mason Projects performances, “...the singing was stellar, on par with anything I’ve heard recently at higher profile venues such as Zankel Hall or National Sawdust. These concerts deserve a wider audience.”
