Where & when:
Presentation: The Power Of Integral Music
Ken Wilber has said about Steve’s ground-breaking Integral Oratorio: “Steve Banks’s ‘Blue Pearl Oratorio’ is a wonderful, exciting musical composition created as a manifestation of his Integral understanding. It’s a superb, exhilarating, magical piece of music that takes one through any number of different experiential realities, a manifestation of Steve’s own wider and deeper awareness. Sit back and enjoy a rich trip through these effervescent realities in your own case, highly recommended.” Music is a powerful, psychoactive medium for expressing the Integral vision. Steve will explain some features of his Integral music: the difference between music that transforms and music that translates; the use of ‘key’ changes; holarchy; the spectrum of consciousness; silence; the physical and temporal performance ‘space’ (LR). Steve will be inviting support for the World Premiere of this oratorio, on 27.2.21. You can listen to a demo recording online, at www.stevebanks.info.
