Healing Sound Journey with Vibraphonist Chris Dingman
Chris Dingman is a vibraphonist and composer exploring the intersections of music and healing, bringing listeners on a journey to a beautiful, transcendent place. He has done significant work with legendary artists Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter as well as next generation visionaries such as Jen Shyu, Ambrose Akinmusire, Garth Stevenson and many others.
In celebration of the release of the five-hour album Peace, vibraphonist and composer Chris Dingman performs a series of five healing sound journeys on August 18-22 for the Reimagine Festival.
Chris recorded Peace as he performed it for his father in the final weeks of his life, during his time in home hospice care. The music of Peace sets an atmosphere of calm and compassion, to help soothe, heal, and carry you through life’s challenges.
Following his father's passing, Chris has gone on to perform healing music for others, and to speak about his experiences, including at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, and the Gold Foundation Humanism Summit as part of the Planetree Conference on Person-Centered Care.
