Magnetic Sound Baths is an immersive listening experience, where participants are invited to lay back amidst a wash of meditative sounds. A sound bath creates a temporary break from the sensory stimuli of an active life, allowing people space with their thoughts, and time to inspect their own internal mental narrative. The installation is comprised of several sound-generating sculptures, electroacoustic works of art that use magnetic fields to induce vibration and soundwaves in metal and wood.
MJ Caselden is a sound artist and creative technologist based out of New York City. His work often explores energy flow across mediums, and through people. Caselden's artwork has been shown around the country in spaces such as the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Times Square Arts, and the New Museum of Contemporary Art.
