A special approach into excavating archaic phonetic levels in the structure of the ritual polyphony.

Archepolyphony, a branching of “Ecorporeality” is a vocal kinesthetic investigation into the unadulterated voice and movement, a “body voice” which honors communing than just communicating. Psycho-physical tasks, creative improvisation and ritual dance, somatic visualizations, and audio-sensory images unleash the quest for the authentic voice – our truth thermometer. Special emphasis is placed on nurturing the neutrality of the voice, which manifests as embodied consciousness as it brings into balance the entire human eco-system. Once unveiled the neutral voice is then compelled to give up its own truth, to sacrifice it into an arcane “presence of absence.” The method suggests that voice and body training is not a matter of acquiring a skill, but rather of unearthing the full range of pure identity. By examining the archaic phonetic levels in the structure of the ritual polyphony the lab focuses on inducing the perennial channel of “para-communication” through breath awareness. As we plug the voice into the true and transparent inner life of instinct, emotional impulse and sacred codes of vibration we learn to remove the habits of restriction and unlock subliminal perception and meaning. We further cultivate the inner environment of the voice, its buoyancy, potency, tonality and radiance – a domain that is vaster than anything conceivable in its outside world, an inner space where our true voices live and survive though often unheard and unrecognized even by us. The primordial memory of archetypal codes is unleashed into the many “voices” of our collective identity. As we embrace the voice as a site for overlapping identities, states, moods, memories, emotions, and a multitude of subtle shades of meaning and expression, we naturally defy all efforts for originality and settle into an organic way of movement and voice, which is our birthright. Then we “map the wilderness” of our unruly “body-voice” and lift the mundane frequency into a higher octave of expanded consciousness.
