The Night Meditation


Concert ‘The Night Meditation’ will be part of the festival program of introvert art ‘Ad lucem.’ This unique tradition was established by the outstanding British cello musician Matthew Barley, who is known for his creativity, daring, openness to unbeaten ideas, and disregard of geographical, social, and style-related limits. In an eight hour meditation, the audience will follow improvisation, diving deep into orchestral timbres of acoustic and electrical cello, remaining seated, lying down on cushions, blankets or sleeping bags – falling asleep, waking up, and entering a dimension of perception eluding us in the everyday. Be with us!
