improvisational sounds for liberation

Robin Lane

Mar 10, 2024 – Mar 16, 2024

Artist statement: Each day I will enter the window gallery at SPACE with my cello and a daily intention. I will hold a compassionate space, allowing the music and sounds of the intention and the moment to come through me and my cello in the form of sound.  I will record, layering the cello sounds, until the work tells me it is complete. I will then mix the work and upload it to my website for everyone to listen to. By the end of the week, there will be 7 or 8 separate pieces to listen to.

Everything is vibration. Form is sound. Vibration connects us all. It is my intention for this work to be of service to individuals and the collective in the physical, emotional, and spiritual realms. It is my intention to be of service to the liberation of all beings.  

I offer this work in solidarity with the people of Palestine. I encourage you to take time each day to witness the genocide happening in Palestine. I encourage you to write and call your representatives, to call for a ceasefire, and to stop all military aid to Israel.

Robin Lane will post the recordings here.
