Catherine Catherine Hennix’ concepts of sound and light are inspired by the fundamental impact they exert on our sense of presence. By controlling the presence and absence of frequencies in a given space, the senses become tuned to specific resonances which open the mind to an alternative awareness of its own presence previously invisible to its introspection.

Since the late 1960s, Hennix has been developing a wave space based on spectral properties and precise intonation which integrate not only room acoustics but also the cognitive pathways of the listener. Many traditions of sacred music have contributed to both the theory and practice of mind altering sound and light productions. “Raag Surah Shruti” is an electronic-instrumental composition that seeks its roots in the intoxicating sounds of just intonation inspired by those mystical traditions of Islam which explore the realm of the invisible and first moment preceding the creation.

A MaerzMusik – Festival for Time Issues production
