Surround yourself by a wall of Gongs, Bells, Cymbals, Sound Plates, and drums, Michael Bettine creates a whirlwind of percussion artistry in this one day only event.
Pre-registration $25. Day of $30.

Imagine yourself swimming in an ocean of sound, immersed in the vibrations of gongs, singing bowls, bells, and other resonating percussion. These instruments have the ability to induce a very relaxed and open state, where the body, mind, and spirit can recharge and refocus. Michael Bettine often uses up to 50 different gongs, bells, and singing bowls to creative a fully immersive experience.
About the Artist: Michael has played percussion for 50 years. He started working with gongs over 40 years ago and has worked extensively with gongs, singing bowls, and bells in meditation over the past 15 years. He has presented workshops on gongs at the prestigious Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) in both 2005 and 2012. He was also the Artist in Residence at the 2016 MONA FOMA festival in Hobart, Australia, where he presented gong sessions, solo concerts, and duo concerts with well known Australian musicians. .
