The Music Between: "One Note" | A Meditative Exploration of a Single Note - Bring an Instrument!


Thu Feb 23 2023 at 07:00 pm to 10:00 pm


Good Shepherd Chapel | Melbourne, VI


Vinod Prasanna a bansuri player extraordinaire teams up with saxophonist Leo Dale to coordinate “One Note” - a participatory event where audience members are encouraged to bring an instrument to join in a meditative exploration of vibration of a single note. The essence of the event is for everyone to play one note for up to three hours on the same pitch (in different octaves) as a way to tune in to a deeper appreciation of music. 

Vinod has facilitated experiences like this lasting up to 6 hours the note keeps on changing over the time until it settles in the space within without and between. An exercise in intense active listening One Note is a deep experience utilising the phenomenon of sympathetic vibration. The participants in One Note event all tune into each other and tune each other up. As the note settles the harmony within one note is found.
