The Silent Pilgrimage: A meditative journey through the physical space of the festival.
The temporary architecture of the Greenbelt site shapes our festival. Do we view the site merely functionally or through it can we encounter the Divine? The Silent Pilgrimage is a site-specific sound installation that takes the participant on a reflective journey around the festival site. Moments of reflection, celebration and blessing held within the common framework of the site around us all.
Away from the festival the physical environment that we inhabit shapes our being. Whether the city or hamlet, the countryside or the town the presence of God is within them all. The spiritual is physical; the physical is spiritual. Do we view the environment that we inhabit functionally or is it an icon into the Divine. The Silent Pilgrimage opens these questions exploring sideways encounters through the physical.
We have commissioned five groups to write the meditations:
Frunt, Molten Meditation, Beyond, Spirit Walk and Gloppy Music. The meditations,
of both words and music, will provide a unique soundscape for the site this
year, reflecting on both the
site location and also on a particular stage of the silent journey.
