SOUND INTENSIVE 2

JAN 8 - 21, 2023 | MADERAS VILLAGE | NICARAGUA

MUSIC PRODUCTION AND ABLETON IMMERSIVE

WELCOME TO THE NICARAGUA RESIDENCY.

The alternate reality designed for creators and producers of our generation. A space designed to enter peak states of mind through sound. 

Just off the beaten path in the Pacific coast of Nicaragua, this artist residency is a conscious container & project incubator for creatives looking for a hero’s dose of inspiration and a boost in creative energy to accomplish their vision and remember your infinity. 

 

SOUND INTENSIVE 2
MUSIC PRODUCTION AND ABLETON IMMERSIVE

Momentom’s Music Production and Sound Healing Residency provides residents from around the world with the unique opportunity to write and record in a state-of-the-art music studio while being inspired by the Momentom lifestyle and community.

In this 2 week music intensive, residents will be guided into a Masterclass series on how to create originally produced music with David Satori (Beats Antique and Dirtwire), and another guest teacher to be announced soon.

Using Ableton techniques as well as live vocal and instrument samples, the decades of experience between both our guest facilitators will allow you to enter a space of devotion to your craft.  Last season the residents launched our first online digital residency NFT collections, and we included some of the tracks that were produced in house.

As a community we will produce original tracks at the end of our 2 weeks together, as well as come away with a better understanding of all the elements that go into song creation and performance DJ sets.

For Momentom, music is the bridge between form and the formless – through space and time – able to project listeners into new dimensions, into new heightened  states of consciousness . Sound allows for us to remember memories from beyond the “self” -and helps us tap into our inner alchemists helping us heal from the inside out. It is through healing ourselves that we can heal the world outside of us and through sound, we are in service.

We come together to harmonize through our bodies and minds and glimpse together in the timeless state of consciousness. Our bodies are the main musical instruments and vessels that commune with the invisible dimensions. By activating our bodies and voices, we dive deeper into the states of consciousness apt for flow states. We enter the liminal space to create new worlds through sound and transcend the trance of limitation. In this residency, we learn the technical skills to create sound but also the energetic signatures on how to alchemize expression into reality. 

We’ve invited some of our community’s top music producers, musicians, sound healers, movement artists to guide us through the iconic Momentom experience – this time for a 2 weeks intensives. Expect movement, sound journeys and the most transformational experience through community.
