Yes, it is meditative. No, it’s not a traditional sound meditation session. Yes, it is psychedelic, in the sense of bringing you closer to the purest functions of the brain and soul as a natural effect of getting in touch with your higher frequencies. Psychedelia is a Greek word (Ψυχεδέλεια) consisting of the words ‘soul’ (ψυχή : psyche) and ‘evident’, clear, apparent (φανερός, δήλος : delia), which literally means: the state where the soul becomes evident and apparent.

All audio is created with voices only and does not include pre-recorded material or samples. It is a LIVE composition. 

This event is a combination of a vocal performance and a meditative ritual, through melodies and frequencies. 

A hymn to the umbilical cord and its triumphant cutting.
For the purification of the soul, for the healing of the body, for the arousal of the spirit. To freedom.

‘manna’

‘Manna’ is a collaboration of ATBC with the visual artist, Georgios Cherouvim. This act is a bi-directional improv work, where melodic lines from the Byzantine musical womb and Countertenor vocals will meet with Shamanic voice drones, animal voices, numbers and rhythmic patterns; a liturgy about Oneness. The generated image evolves and shifts between ambiguous shapes and the human form, in an elegant interplay between synthesis, metamorphosis and bursts of randomness. 

‘manna’

The therapeutic frequencies.

A build-up of looping vocals. A hyperrealistic existential journey. Tuning in with the senses.

Online sound-bath, healing meditation music. Contact for private session.

A note from Labros Filippou (ATBC):

And They Built Churches  is the name of this project and what I’m offering here is an avant-garde sound-bath, as they call it in the language of meditation and sound therapy. Only, different.

It consists of Byzantine hymns, Shamanic voice drones, voices of animals and the nature, numbers and a wide range of frequencies – from very low to countertenor notes.

Roosters

This project was born in Los Angeles and it is mostly performing around NYC, where my base is and also in Greece, where I come from. ATBC offers avant-garde audio performances and meditative sound-baths. This period, I’m collaborating with the visual artist, Georgios Cherouvim, with whom I have created ‘manna’, recently presented at ADAF (GR), LIGHTBOX.IO (NYC) and is about to be hosted in more platforms and festivals around the world.

All audio is created with voices only and does not include pre-recorded material or samples. It is a LIVE composition.

Online sound-bath, healing meditation music meets avant-garde. Contact for private sessions.

Looping countertenor operatic vocals, animal voices, Byzantine hymns and Shamanic voice drones meet rhythmic psychedelia, electricity and electronic arts. 

An avant-garde sound-bath to Oneness.
