    Join us at Olana for an afternoon sound experience to celebrate the Winter Solstice. Revel in the meditative views of Olana’s artist-designed landscape while enjoying 30-minute outdoor performances by b e i n g - s o u n d, a collaborative interdisciplinary project between sound artists Joro-Boro and Keena.Maya. In their performances, b e i n g - s o u n d incorporates a variety of sound sources to open listeners to the wonders and mysteries hidden in everyday life. During this interactive experience, visitors will be invited to sip tea and explore subtlety in their five senses while taking in Olana’s spectacular views.

Being as sound and silence, being as stillness and movement. To learn more, visit being-sound.com.
