Using the themes of the exhibition as point of departure musician Morten Svenstrup will facilitate a deep listening session in the form of musical meditation and collective concert. Through music and attentive listening you will be able to experience the Anthropocene with your body and senses when musician Morten Svenstrup guides the participants in a workshop where the relationship between man and nature is examined through a very special musical experience. We will become aware that we, as humans, are animals, too, that we are listening beings. We will become aware of the great acceleration, which is a part of our time, in our bodies, and we will rediscover a more balanced tempo.
Deep listening draws on religious and spiritual traditions and is in itself a powerful praxis based on the participants senses – listening, memories and presence. Come and experience how we as people are intertwined with the world around us and be introduced to Deep Listening exercises, that is inspired by traditions such as Qigong, Sonic Meditation and dream-work.
Morten Svenstrup is a practicing musician and holds a certificate in Deep Listening from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York. He has released a number of compositions and has amongst other things composed music for and played the cello in the internationally acclaimed band Under Byen.
