Listening Room is an ongoing project created by Jennifer Levenhagen;
hosted and attended by people who believe in the power of live, improvisational music to empower, inspire, heal, and reveal.
this was made for you.
come to relax, reconnect, rejuvenate, reflect…
Listening Room is a space created for
intentional presence, introspection, relaxation, and awareness;
for anyone who chooses to be present.
This is is not a concert, show, or presentation.
It’s a bit like a musical massage
You're invited to wear comfortable clothes, bring pillows or blankets, or a quietly creative project.
You may keep your eyes open or closed, pay attention or not, etc...
about listening room
No two Listening Rooms are exactly alike.
Each is adjusted according to the environment, hosts, and people present.
The live, original music is not written or memorized (it’s not exactly replicated anywhere at any time by anyone).
All guests are invited to give this time as a gift to themselves and to respect the boundaries, space, and needs of others.
This isn’t a concert - no clapping required.
People have experienced Listening Room to be…
an emotional release
inspiring of creativity
a mutual practice of deep listening
like group or guided meditation
Please Enjoy Listening
All tracks are improvisational - as is the music of any Listening Room with Jennifer Levenhagen.
In this case, "improvisational" means that there is no written music for these pieces, no plan for them before the fingers touch the keys, and that the recordings are the only place these unique original sounds exist...
when you attend . . .
remember that this evening is for you
give yourself this gift of presence
arrive with intention
please remain still and quiet during the music
be respectful of your own and others’ boundaries
do not feel obligated to clap
wear comfortable clothes
consider bringing a blanket
lie on the floor, close your eyes, pay attention, not…
meditate, sleep, work on a quiet, creative project…
