Humming in Harmony workshop and Flashmob
I am Sergio Lopez Figueroa, the creator of Humming in Harmony, as a composer, pianist and social entrepreneur I am fascinated about sound. Following a series of life challenges a couple of years ago I returned back to music to find solace. Sharing my findings with others was part of the healing process. In 2016 I was selected as changemaker by the Southbank Centre at the Festival of Love and have ben working with individuals and organisations promoting a new practise of mindfulness based on the power of music and sound vibration of the human voice.
Humming in Harmony is a group practise that relies on the human connection at a primal level in a physical space. It is not a guided meditation but a self regulatory practise based on the principle of empathy and active listening.
Calling 9.30 for 10 am start this is a Humming in Harmony workshop Bring comfortable clothes and a yoga mat if you want to lay down in comfort. The tent is a fantastic circular space suitable for this practise, an oasis of silence and peace in the city. The principles of humming in harmony ill be explained and experienced.

As a composer I have written improvisational music for piano, orchestra and humming audience. I am promoting HUM (HUMAN UNIVERSAL MUSIC) a long term recording and performance project which uses 24 pieces of classical piano repertoire as improvisational material. The project aims to spread the value of empathy through music around the world to enable meaningful connections between individuals in our divided societies.
