A spacial show that combines many unique pure sounds is coming to the St. Andrews Church and Centre for Peace on April 20th when Sounds of the Solar System with David Hickey performs starting at 7:30 p.m.
With more than 10 years experience and 1,000 performances to date, Crystal Journey is currently in the middle of a cross Canada tour in the provinces of Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.
As for what you will see and hear if you attend the performance is a combination of all these unique and ancient instruments which provides the listener a chance to journey with the sounds to the outer reaches of our minds and universe.
The shows will take place in two 40 to 50 minute sets and David usually sets up 15-20 Quartz Crystal Bowls, 8-10 Paiste Planet Gongs, a Vibraphone and a Santoor.
None of the music or sounds are amplified, pre-recorded or rehearsed and each set is sonically pure and unique.
Crystal Journey has dedicated its intention for the music to help raise awareness to our environment and the growing need to become aware of severe earth changes. Crystal Journey also works with the cancer support group Well Spring Calgary and SEVA Canada, a Vancouver based charitable organization that fights blindness and restores sight in nine countries.
The intent of the performance is to create expansive and improvised music, to awaken consciousness and to provide a cosmic musical journey into the unknown. Tickets at the door will cost $20.
