This is the first in a series of meditation cassettes that pair up musicians with meditation facilitators. In 2016 we were approached by Liz and Dwight from Crash Symbols to help curate a series inspired by meditation cassettes of the early 80s. We jumped at the opportunity and suggested that the first installment be us with Jesse Fleming.
We started collaborating with Jesse at 356 Mission Gallery after learning he held a weekly meditation called Sunday Sit. We felt our music would benefit the mindfulness practice, so we contacted Jesse, went to a sit and offered to perform for the group. We did a small test run, which was warmly received, and so on an almost-monthly basis we performed for this group, sometimes alongside Jesse, sometimes by ourselves. In both cases, we recorded the sessions.
Heart & Insight Meditations is inspired by these gatherings and the music is the actual recording from the first two sits we performed at in 2015.
s a companion piece, we created a video for the first side of the meditation to serve as a visual centerpiece for your practice. In keeping with our FlemingXESB theme, we edited down a 90m video piece originally seen at Cycle, a 12 hour meditation installation at UCLA Broad Art Center, which was curated and organized by Jesse.
