David Hickey might be the only musician who is happy if his audience is sleeping. “Crystal Journey” is a performance best experienced lying down, and although chairs are provided, people are encouraged to bring a yoga mat, blanket, or cushion for the evening of soothing, meditative and healing music.
David’s usual set-up includes six quartz crystal bowls, eight to 10 Paiste Planet gongs, two Persian santoors (hammered dulcimers), shruti box (bellows powered drone similar to a harmonium), and harmonica. Occasionally, he incorporates vocals to create harmonized chants. Nothing is amplified, pre-recorded or rehearsed.
The event is Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Arts Centre in Sechelt, 6:30-9pm, $20 at the door.
Proceeds from the evening will go to Sunday in the Park with Pride Society, dedicated to creating community for LGBTQ2 youth on the Sunshine Coast. Doors open at 6pm. Bring a yoga mat or blanket to lie on. Chairs will also be available.
