Light, Sound, and Spirit

Friday, October 4, 2019 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

An Exploration of Light, Sound and Spirit: A presentation of 7 videos synthesizing music and projected imagery by Ken Goodrich of Hawaii Photo Retreat.

Walking into a sunlit forest, gazing upon a turquoise sea, hearing the strains of a haunting melody or the wind in the trees, we can be transported to other realms out of the bounds of time and place.

Utilizing music from many cultures and images ranging from luminescent landscapes to microscopic crystal formations, Goodrich's multimedia explorations are the celebration of the spirit that animates all beings.
