Ecstatic Dance. Rhythms in Motion. Earth Tribe Gathering. Original Electronic Music by Vic Hennegan

Saturday June 22nd, 7:00-9:00pm, $15 Sliding Scale 

Vic Hennegan has been writing, recording, producing and performing electronic music for several years. As a live performer he has performed at such shows as The Gathering Concert Series in Philadelphia, Cyberstock of Los Angeles, Ecstatic Dance, 5 Rhythms Dance, Soul Motion, Northern California Dance Collective and many other venues around the world. With computers, samplers, vocals and synthesizers, Hennegan’s instinctive hand creates techno- trance and ambient music in a wildly fun, uplifting spiritual experience that will take your soul on a journey to the center of ecstasy.

"A unique warmth emanates from Hennegan's music moving the listener to a state of euphoria. Through complex and insistent rhythms and vocals, Hennegan accomplishes a lush dynamic that relentlessly strives to entertain.” (Matt Howarth, Sonic Curiousity.com)

Hennegan’s music is complimented by the guest artists he works with such as Surface Ten’s synthesist extraordinaire, Dean De Benedictis; and Becca Fuchs, whose incredible vocal range spans from operatic to soulful and sexy. His music is streamed on radio shows such as Pandora, Spotify, Alien Air Music, Star's End, Echoes, Apple Music, Hearts of Space and much much more!

Hennegan’s compositions are featured on three different "Echoes" compilations: “Soundscape for Echoes” on the release “Refractions: The Echoes Living Room Concerts, Volume 12,” with internationally renowned electronic musicians Andreas Vollenweider and Michael Brook; and Echoes Location, The Echoes Living Room Concerts, Volume 17, featuring a live version of his most popular itunes download, "Patagonian Rain." And the 2014 release, Transmissions: Echoes Living Room Concerts V19, featuring the song "Desert Vortex." The host of "Echoes," John Diliberto, personally invited Vic Hennegan to participate in all of the Echoes compilations and has placed Hennegan's 2011 release "Field of Worlds and Mirrors," as one of the top 25 albums of the year.

Vic Hennegan is excited to be working with his top favorite synthesizer companies: U-he, Tal- Tugo Audio, Rob Papen, Synapse Audio, AudioRealism and Novation.

Hennegan’s music may be found on Pandora, Spotify, itunes, CDBaby, Rhapsody.com, Apple Music, Yahoo.com, Amazon.com, and MusicZiet.com.

Hennegan is a practicing Buddhist. This faith aims to manifest enlightenment in the lives of its practitioners. By tapping into an individual's creative potential, one can create a thriving and peaceful community. Through his faith and his music, Hennegan invokes the timeless tradition of music’s healing powers. He believes that, “We are the creators of our own universe. I seek to help people understand this very fact through my music.”

Art Installation:

Mieshiel will be exhibiting six very large intricate pencil drawings from a series called “In the Field” which are surrealistic works based on creating reality from the zero point field where all things become possible.

Mieshiel was born in New York City. He attended Friends Seminary & received his BFA in 1986 from California Institute of the Arts. Upon graduations, Mieshiel moved into a 19th century Masonic Temple in Los Angeles where he co-founded Temple Art Performance, a hub for avante-garde performance art, music & visual art. He later moved to New Mexico & spent the next 24 years in near seclusion, living off the grid. In this high desert sanctuary timelessness & utter quiet allowed him to experience an endless barage of mystical experiences where his art connection with Pablo Amaringo was revealed. In 1982 Mieshiel won competition & created a street mural at Irving Place in NYC. His work has been exhibited nationally & is included in the permanent collections of the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos.

Musical Talent:

Esmé Olivia is a performing & teaching artist grateful to have grown up in occupied Tiwa Pueblo lands known as Albuquerque, NM to a Mestiza Mexican-American mother & Dutch father. Her blood is a peace treaty she honors through prayers of dance, poetry & song. She is a company member with Dancing Earth Creations. Listen, look and learn more at EsmeOlivia.com.
