MindTravel brings together Murray Hidary's passions for contemporary classical music, visual art, theoretical physics and wisdom traditions. They are the four pillars of an integrated musical experience that seeks to explore an understanding of the universe at both the visible and hidden levels.
At its core, MindTravel creates the space and permission to feel and connect. It is an exploration of the notion that bringing the lessons of music into our daily lives can radically improve our clarity, our ability to reflect and relax, and that with music as our teacher – we can peel back layers of our Self yet unseen. That to understand the universe we must first understand our Selves, for they are one and the same.
Since its inception, MindTravel has become a soundtrack for emergence; for transformation and celebration, that has been praised by a wide array of influential thinkers and figures. At a MindTravel performance, you can expect a framing intention – typically a short talk from Murray – followed by a powerful musical experience, either in a theater setting accompanied by projected visuals that carry the lecture from the theoretical to the real, or in an outdoor setting using nature as the backdrop and inspiration for a “silent” live-to-headphone experience on the beach, in a park or on your rooftop.
