My improvisation set with a healer, singing bawl artist Miyoko Satoh was full of stillness, healing and brightness. It was a real meditation indeed. We were in somewhere beyond somewhere.

Live music improvisation by JunYi Chow and Seungmin Cha
STILLNESS IN QUEENS is an experimental video and sound art performance exploring the beauty and quietude of everyday life in Queens. Audience members are invited to experience the borough in a new way, and an evening of stillness, by engaging in a multi-dimensional dialogue between video and sound. The performance provides an accessible space for deep contemplation on the complexities of Queens within the simplicity of stillness. This event is made possible in part by funding from Queens Council on the Arts.

Thank you Lucid culture for an amazing review of us!!! : https://lucidculture.wordpress.com/2017/09/16/stillness/
