As part of our Spring Equinox Reset event, a program in collaboration with Artpace’s current Hudson Showroom exhibition, Mystic Toolkit, we invite the public to join us for a sound bath meditation. The sound bath will be led by Pamela Martinez aka Teletextile.
Participants of the Sound Bath can expect to be lulled into deep relaxation using the sounds of singing bowls, gong, harmonium, vocals, and other sound sources to provide a meditative and healing environment while seated in a chair or more traditionally lying down on the ground.
We encourage guests to bring a mat or blanket to lie down on, but chairs will be available for those who prefer to sit. Please note that the floor is concrete and body temperatures tend to drop during meditation.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required to attend.
About Pamela Martinez
Pamela Martinez is a reiki master, educator, multi-instrumentalist, and composer who creates music and immersive experiences under the moniker Teletextile. Her “Bjork-like” sound (The Boston Globe) moves from vocal layering and “electronic wizardry” (Metronome Magazine) to “dense, stormy guitar, piano and electronics” (Time Out New York). Martinez has toured extensively in the US, Europe, the UK, and Asia. As a genre-hopping performer and musician, Martinez has performed violin at Carnegie Hall with a Carnatic Indian music ensemble, sang in San Francisco’s historic Fillmore Theater and takes part in performance art happenings in New York City. Her recent directing and performing credits include Whisperlodge. The New York Times dubbed Whisperlodge “an unusual mix of theater and therapy” and has been featured in BuzzFeed, The Atlantic, Netflix, Vice and more with acclaim. Martinez creates new work with the Teletextile Ritual Arts Ensemble a group of rotating collaborators that weave together a tapestry of music, movement, reiki, and other healing rituals to create a mixture of performance and spiritual practice.
Martinez holds a bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Berklee College of Music in Boston and specializes in creating works of deep listening, sound baths and sonic expressions, and passes on the craft of music and wellbeing by teaching and leading workshops at Southtown Music Studio (SATX) located in Mercury Project Contemporary Art Space.
