118 Elliot resumes Sunday Sounds series

BRATTLEBORO — 118 Elliot will re-launch its weekly series of 'Sunday Sounds' after an August hiatus.

Participants are invited to engage in quiet contemplation while listening to intentional, one-hour performances by guest “sound artists” on Sundays from 11 a.m. to noon at 118 Elliot Street in downtown Brattleboro; doors open at 10:30 a.m. and tea is served following the experience. The events are free. Donations are welcome.

Sunday Sounds means to create an inclusive place for the community to gather in a communion of contemplation that transcends religious, philosophical, and political differences in the presence of great music and art.

Participants often engage in quiet movement such as yoga or stretching and yoga mats and blankets are provided. The goal is to release people from the churning of their daily lives to share an experience of relaxation and self-reflection.

Sunday Sounds will feature a host in a monthly rotation who will either perform or curate those performances. First Sundays will present Jed Blume and his ethereal raga-based hand pan compositions. Second Sundays features Stephan Brandstatter's sonic massage. Third Sundays will have the modulated synthesiser sounds of Patrick Spurlock and on Fourth Sundays, John Loggia will mix found sounds with percussion.

Months with a fifth Sunday will feature a special guest host to be announced. For more information, visit or
