'Out of Discord Comes the Most Beautiful Harmony' is the simultaneous creation of a cosmic mandala by a monumental-sized 'pendulagraph' and a healing sound-bath by quartz-crystal singing bowls. Together with artist and metaphysician Michael Carter and sound-bowl practitioner Kristin Palombo, the audience will contribute their vibrational presence in seeking to harmonize the impersonal, cosmic law of gravitation and the felt experience of pure sound vibration. 'Out of Discord Comes the Most Beautiful Harmony' proposes the possibility of unifying the grand opposites of our shared reality: finite and infinite; subjectivity and objectivity; form and emptiness; masculine and feminine; cosmic and terrestrial; law and chaos. In this unified field, our consciousness can travel into altered states of being, opening the doors to new conditions of mental and spiritual experience.
