Following on from their Harwich Festival 2018 appearance with ‘Saxology’, Cydnei B and local musician Catherine Shrubshall have been invited back this year as ‘her&her’ – bringing another aspect of their musicality through their relaxing sound spas. There are six dates scheduled into the festival programme to coincide with the Summer Solstice, which will be duly celebrated. One visit to the Sound Spa will work wonders, and multiple attendances will deepen the benefits even more!

‘her&her’ invite you to get comfortable and close your eyes whilst being guided on an improvised musical journey, to explore and encourage healing. The effect of the vibrations will assist your body and mind to rebalance and re-harmonise. Deep listening, mindfulness and meditation are also encouraged…along with an open heart and the imagination to be taken on a musically resonant and replenishing adventure. Cydnei and Catherine improvise soundscapes that range from beautiful to haunting, soothing, healing, harmonious, loud, quiet, meditative, eerie, and otherworldly. The textures and melodic lines are created with voices, clarinets, Himalayan singing bowls, wha-wha, drums, bells, khochi chimes, conch shells, sansulas, saxophones, pitch pipes, xylophone – plus anything else they can blow, hit or lay their hands on! Showering you with sound, the nourishment and self-care will leave you feeling nurtured, refreshed and ready to face the world again.
