MindTravel’s mission is to move people to greater purpose
in their lives through music
Experiential music company, MindTravel, presents its signature Live-to-Headphones ‘Silent’ Piano, SilentHike and Floating Meditation experiences throughout the year on gorgeous beaches, in beautiful parks and other stunning outdoor spaces such as the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, and in iconic spaces such as Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.
Whether it’s for 100 people or 1000 people, this magical experience takes audiences on a profound journey as composer and pianist Murray Hidary’s real-time compositions are beamed directly into the MindTravel headphones that the audience wears. It’s a perfect way to take in the majestic surroundings while also experiencing a musical revelation spontaneously improvised, infused with wisdom traditions, theoretical physics and the power of communal elevation.
At its core, MindTravel creates the space and permission to feel and connect. It is an exploration of the notion that bringing the lessons of music into our daily lives can radically improve our clarity, our ability to reflect and relax, and that with music as our teacher – we can peel back layers of our Self yet unseen.
What OUR community is saying
It's interesting to think that we—me and everyone listening to Hidary's meditations—are participating in some sort of collective healing in a time that's at once intensely painful and has the power to be a stepping stone to a more inclusive future.
Transcendence is exactly what happens for some people. Sarah Puil, a senior vice president at an experiential branding agency in San Francisco, went to a MindTravel event for the first time six weeks after having a child with her husband.
It felt like a moving meditation; an opportunity to slow down and fully engage with the senses. But unlike meditating solo, which forces you look within, this felt more like an invitation to gaze out at the collective.
The kinetic experience of walking — sometimes, at Hidary’s request, in slow motion — mingles with the soundtrack and the external surroundings. “There’s something about that physical movement which gets the whole system integrated,” he says.
The pandemic not only inspired Murray Hidary’s ‘Distanced Together,’ it gave him time to write it. The pianist and composer talks about his massive sonic installation at Mass MoCA and this weekend’s upcoming performances.
