SOUND RESIDENCY

Marsella, Nicaragua • Jan 7 - 20, 2024

BODY PERCUSSION AND SOUND HEALING

WE ARE QUITE LITERALLY MADE OF MUSIC.

Momentom Collective is proud to introduce Multi Instrumentalist Elijah Ray and ceremonialists & musicians Margaux and Matute, along with Erotic Jazz Cabaret founder and vocalist Jade Fusco and World Champion Beatboxer and Multi-instrumentalist Johnny Buffalo as Guest Teachers alongside our core Momentom Crew for the 2024 season of Sound Intensive. These professional artists will be guiding 20+ residents through a two-week intensive residency where we collectively tune ourselves into the ultimate instrument.”

In this intensive, residents will be guided in a carefully curated progressional and progressive workshop series to explore and better understand how to tune ourselves as channels of sound. This is an exceptional experience for musicians, DJs, vocalists, channellers, healers, artists or anyone who wants to experience their power as creators and who want to learn to use vibration as medicine

ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE

We don’t know where the world is going, but we know that especially now, the best investment we can make is on experiences where we are living our lives to the fullest.

Momentom Residencies are exactly that-  alternate realities for artists and creators of our generation who are curious on how to enter peak states of mind through the arts. A space where we meet ourselves through others. 

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 visions and remember their infinity. 

For us, 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. 

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 week intensive. 

We are lucky to have renowned artists facilitate their original workshops to give your personal and professional insider tips in how to alchemize your dreams into your daily expression.

We know that right now with the world in the state that it currently is, some times it can be challenging to justify investing in ourselves.  

We have thought about this a lot these past months, 

What does it mean to come to residency and why does it matter?

In short- because Art is essential.  You are essential. A world without you knowing the depth of your own expression, of you not singing that song or taking those chances, is actually not a world we wish to live in. 

 Oh and for the matrix money side of things- we got you.  Shoot us an email at [email protected] and we are down to see what we can do for payment plans to take the pressure off.

 We are so excited to create with you

FAQS

Yes. All Momentom residencies are certified. Residents must attend all classes to obtain a certificate.

After your application has been accepted, within the following week, you will need to pay a 50 percent deposit to book your place. Then we ask that you pay the remaining amount no more than 30 days before your residency. If you cancel before this time we honor 50% of your deposit as credit for a future residency. If you do not cancel before this time, you will forfeit your deposit and we will have to give the space to someone else.

We believe in the medicine of community so much that we want our experiences to be as accessible as possible. We can evaluate this on a case by case basis and we are open to working with you if you need support and we can come to a suitable agreement. After you apply, you can notify our sales team as to your specific inquiries around payment structure.

Sound healing is a holistic practice that involves the use of sound, such as music, singing bowls, gongs, or other instruments, to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and enhance well-being. Proponents of sound healing believe that specific frequencies and vibrations can have a positive impact on a person’s physical, emotional, and spiritual state. This practice is often used in conjunction with meditation and other relaxation techniques.

For us, the best thing we can invest is in the expansion of the human spirit and to live this incredible life to the fullest. The future is not around the corner, it is now.

Everyone is an artist and everyone can learn how to channel and how to tap into creative peak states. In collective settings, its easier to access these frequencies as we are all sharing the morphogenetic field.
