Laura LAIR / Toward Light / Out Now

“Sink into the sound

And move toward light”

You may have noticed my tracks often have silence at the beginning and/or end of them. This is intentional- the silences are just as much a part of the piece as the ‘noise’ πŸ™

Laura LAIR / Adam Perry / New Moon Offering

April 23, 2020 § Leave a comment

​I was deeply moved by this artwork ‘She reveals her power to save her loved ones’ when Adam sent it to me. I tuned in to the picture for a segment of a sound bath I recorded and Adam has put this to a time lapse of him creating his stunning piece which you can watch here:

Adam writes: “The scene is 16th century England at the peak of the witch trials, a young woman is being hidden by loved ones from authorities as many of those trials lead to their execution; but she chooses to reveal herself and her powers as she does not want those caring for her to be seen as an accessory to her ‘heresy’ under the medieval religious beliefs and laws of the time.”

I felt a profound sadness, overwhelm and just depth of emotion when I tuned into the artwork and I think perhaps you’ll be able to feel some of that emotion through my piece “In Light Divine” which accompanies the art in our New Moon video.

A New Moon offering from @adamperryart and me πŸŒ‘ I was deeply moved by this artwork when Adam sent it to me. As soon as I saw it, I cried.

Free Yoga Nidra Session April 26th

April 22, 2020 § Leave a comment

I will be running a Yoga Nidra session on Sunday April 26th at 3pm Irish time.

If you would like to be part of it, just email me at resoundingpower(AT)gmail(DOT)com from the address you’d like me to send the link to- the link will be to a Soundcloud audio stream (not video) that will be live from 3pm for as long as it takes to do the session and then will no longer be accessible.

What you will need–
  • A comfy place to lie that has a good wifi signal so you can stream the audio with ease (can be a couch or bed, on a carpeted floor or on a yoga mat on the floor- pick what works best for you and your body’s comfort)
  • A blanket- make sure you are warm
  • Bolster(s)/cushion(s) for under your head/neck/knees… whatever combination that ensures you are perfectly comfortable for the complete practice as the intention is to not move once you start the practice (the intention is this- no worries if you do!)
  • A candle (that we will light together as directed at the beginning of the session)

Make sure you’ll be warm, cosy and properly comfortable!

If you have not experienced Yoga Nidra before, it is a deeply restful practice. All will be clear and explained on the day and I’ll give a little description in the email I respond with to those that sign up to join.

The sign-up window closes at 2pm Irish time on Sunday and you will receive the streaming link just before the 3pm start.Β 

Le grΓ‘, Laura πŸ’š

Laura LAIR / Adam Perry / Collaboration Series / 4

April 8, 2020 § Leave a comment

The fourth piece in my series of Full Moon collaborations for 2020 with the wonderful artist and human Adam Perry.

​Musically, this month’s piece revealed itself to be a lullaby- ‘Lay Down Your Head’ has intense Divine Mother vibes!

The message I received is:
“Listen to your inner child. Care for her/him. Choose to become your own mother- to mother your inner child and to make choices on how best to nourish that child mind, body and spirit. Come from this space as you move forward.”

‘Lay Down Your Head’ accompanies Adam’s absolutely stunning piece “She summons and invokes her Higher Self under the night sky”

I will post the full-length version of my track to Bandcamp on Saturday πŸ™

Laura LAIR / Adam Perry / Collaboration Series / 3

March 9, 2020 § Leave a comment

The third piece in my series of Full Moon collaborations for 2020 with the wonderful artist and human Adam Perry.

For this month’s reading, Adam and I had decided we would put forth the request β€˜show me God/Universal energy’ and allow the sounds and images to come through. So it was quite a profound moment when I revealed my piece of music to be called β€˜The Oracle at Delphi’ and he shared his art reading which centred on her!

The high priestess of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, Greece was known as the Pythia. People came from far and wide to consult her on all important matters from when was best time to plant crops to when war should be undertaken. She was held in the highest esteem and was an extremely powerful woman, with the line of priestesses giving prophecies at Delphi for hundreds of years until the eventual rise of Christianity.

To me, this reading is encouraging us all to tune into our innate inner Knowing and to Trust it.

May we all trust in our own vision and create the world we each want to be part of πŸ™

'The Oracle at Delphi' πŸŒ• Mine and @adamperryart's collaboration for the March Full Moon πŸ™ πŸŒ• Thank you Adam for this stunning artwork and truly powerful reading this month (check out his youtube channel to see Adam talk through all the images from his reading) πŸŒ• I will soon write a full post (on my resoundingpower.com) sharing some thoughts in relation to my perception of the energies we'll be experiencing and moving through over the next month(s) and the message this reading feels to impart πŸŒ• In the meantime I encourage us all to move under the light of the moon and to pay attention to our dreams- especially over the next three nights πŸŒ• Tonight, you may like to go out barefoot on a patch of grass under the light of the moon and MOVE. Whether you sing, sound or be silent, allow all you need to feel come up. Allow the dark to be seen by the light. Tune in to your body and move it as it would like to be moved- no disciplines or set 'moves', go with how you feel in the moment instead. Allow your inner visionary to reveal itself to you. We all have the answers within, all we need do is ask the question and LISTEN to what is revealed πŸŒ• Sending you love as you listen within. May you do it with ears and heart open, without judgment and in full FAITH that all you need 'be' is yourself πŸ™πŸ’š . . . #LauraLAIR #AdamPerry #FullMoon #FullMoonInVirgo ♍ at 5.47pm tonight in #Ireland #Move #Listen #Faith #Visions #Dreams #TuneIntoBody . #LAIR ✴ #Ritual #Mysticism #IrishMystic #DeepListening #Energy #Voice #SoundWithIntention #SoundHealing #SacredSound #Music #WildWoman #DivineFeminineMasculineRising #TheOracleAtDelphi πŸ–Œ #AdamPerryArt #Art #Pythia #Channelling #Reading

Laura LAIR / Adam Perry / Collaboration Series / 2

February 9, 2020 § Leave a comment

The second piece in the series of Full Moon collaborations for 2020 with the wonderful artist and human Adam Perry.

​We did things in reverse for this month’s collaboration- I tuned in and received the music (and the message below) first, and Adam channelled his art while listening to the track on repeat. The result is 3 incredible artworks from Adam soundtracked by my 1 minute piece in honour of February’s Full Moon.
The message for February is: β€œMourn. Forgive. Release.”
The voice of the Eternal Mother sings her song:
The yearning of another world
Life beyond Time
Breathe deep, move true
Rest in my heart
For I hold your Soul in mine.
Image 2, seen here, is named “The transformative process complete, the avatar is ready”. You can check out the other two videos “Souls gravitate around her white light heart” and “The Universal Spirit arrives” on both of our Instagrams: @lauralairmusic and @adamperryart

LAIR / The Department of Energy

February 1, 2020 § Leave a comment

I’m honoured to be part of this mix tape celebrating Imbolc, created by The Department of Energy

The first release from The Department of Energy is inspired by the tributaries and tribulations of Cork’s Lee Valley. This Landscape Mixtape contains potcheen anecdotes, airborne survey planes, archive material, drowned houses, hard ambience, alluvial oak woods, unidentified flying objects, a lost mp3, a broken wav, 1980’s radio, 2020 visions, fast eddies, sloe meanders, preliminary research, semi-state bodies, statements of intent, folklore, feathered friends and the knowledge of salmon.

In the 1950’s the ESB flooded parts of the Lee Valley, when they built two hydroelectric dams to power Cork city. Gerry O’Riordan’s memories of this event (interviewed by Dr Richard Scriven for his Cork Is The Lee podcast) form part of the mixtape, alongside layers of local field recordings made by the Department of Energy over the past 12 months and extracts from some 39 year old cassettes. Have you ever noticed how a fast flowing stream sounds like environmental tape hiss?

Recently resurfaced tracks by DOE members (Mercury.mp3 & Borderland.wav) sit next to newer arrangements by Local Gods, all counterpointed by two fathoms-deep meditations from LAIR“⁠

The Department of Energy was inspired by a GAA pitch, a white quartz standing stone, an electrical station and a stream. That was February last year and since then we’ve made recordings, taken photographs and just sat and listened, all over the Lee Valley.

That raw material has been shaped into a Landscape Mixtape for your listening pleasure. It will be publicly streaming this Saturday – Brigid’s day. We’ll have our first physical release on the first of May. And something to mark every Celtic festival thereafter.”

Laura LAIR / Adam Perry / Collaboration Series / 1

January 10, 2020 § Leave a comment

This is the first in a series of collaborations for 2020 with the wonderful artist and human Adam Perry.

Those who are familiar with my work, may know we have collaborated before. We found we, and our process of connecting to the realms beyond, resonate with each other and so have decided to do a series of one minute pieces throughout the year. Our first piece goes up in tandem with the moon going full at 7.21pm on the 10th here in Ireland and 6.21am on the 11th in his home of Melbourne Australia.

From Adam: “I did a world reading and was shown an Egyptian pyramid and then present day efforts to resurrect the light body of a soul into the body of a deceased human. In this image the warm goddess Isis, accompanied by many souls, is drawn to our successes at immortality in a top secret bunker.” From Laura: “I tuned in to the pictures of a reading Adam did and allowed the sounds to pour through. From my perspective, Isis came forth wanting to be heard.”
