Musical Dialogues of the Third Kind

MusicPlants_SimoneVitale_900x557

Music has the ability to open many gates of communication, and we know this very well.

It makes us dream; it evokes feelings and different kinds of states in us; it heals; it lets us express ourselves.

As a Musician and Sound Healer, I know this aspects of music very well. But what I have come to know through my experience with the Music of the Plants has more to do with myself and my ability to listen. When one engages in a musical dialogue with a plant, one enters a different level of awareness. Or should I say, “one should enter” for the dialogue to even take place.

I have improvised music countless times in my life, alone and with other musicians. I am far too used to the human response—to a call or to respond in a human way to a call. But when I sit close to a plant with one of my instruments, my experience in this regard are not really useful. With a plant, I need to allow myself to slow down, first of all in my mind, and sink deeper. So many aspects of a plant’s life happen on a different time scale.

When I am sitting there, I need to open a different space to allow myself to perceive the interaction. And when the signal comes, it often comes in a different way than I expected. If I am not fully present and attentive I will miss it. I will miss the opportunity to learn more about communication, more about life.

And when I do catch that moment, then I feel very grateful for everything I can learn in that glimpse of deeper connection.
