Evening Concerts

LOS ANGELES, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Global Sound Conference announced today its second annual event bringing together the world's top sound researchers, technologists and musicians will take place May 9 - 12, 2008 at the Marina Del Rey Marriot in Los Angeles. Anchored by a visitor-friendly exhibition hall showcasing the latest in sound-based health technologies, the event features a comprehensive program of lectures and panel discussions that explore the many ways in which sound affects our lives -- medically, emotionally and spiritually -- and how we can use the power of sound to improve our world. Nightly concerts featuring musical superstars Sheila Chandra, Yungchen Lhamo, Rickie Byars Beckwith with the Agape International Choir and others will put a festive exclamation point on each day's events.

With the goal of presenting a 360 degree overview of the latest developments in the study of sound, this year's event examines aural trends in the areas of music therapy, motion picture sound design, rehabilitative audiology, acoustics, musical performance techniques and more. Participants include luminaries from across a broad range of disciplines including jazz legend Stanley Jordan, psychoacoustic expert and Through a Dog's Ear author Joshua Leeds, top Hollywood sound designer Alan Howarth (The Spiderwick Chronicles), The Mozart Effect author Don Campbell and researcher Marilyn Schlitz of the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

"Sound impacts us on such a primal, unconscious level that we often overlook or take for granted the role it plays in our health and mindset on a daily basis," said Alex Theory Ph.D., founder and director of the Global Sound Conference. "While sound has been used for decades as an established medical treatment in specific applications such as ultrasound, it's only been recently that Western science has begun to produce studies establishing how sound and music influence us in other ways, particularly on a neurological level. We're looking forward to a lively mix of cutting edge research and traditional wisdom in our discussions of how we can use sound as a tool to create practical and effective solutions to many common issues."

For early risers, the conference kicks off each morning at 7:30 AM with an hour of guided meditation led by world renowned yoga instructor Shiva Rea in the main exhibition hall. The exhibits open at 9 AM with highlights including voice biofeedback machines, which are used (among many applications) to help the deaf improve speech quality through visual representation of correct vocalizations; and vibroacoustic sound tables, which stimulate oxygen flow within our bone marrow and are used by NASA to keep bones from weakening during space travel. There will also be food, music and personal sound healing tools such as tuning forks and crystal bowls available for purchase.

Tickets to the Global Sound Conference are available on its Web site at http://www.discoversound.com and offer various levels of participation -- from an all access show pass to tickets for the individual concerts and workshops. Passes for individuals and families looking to spend a day viewing the exhibits on the show's main floor will be available pre-sale online and at the door for adults $20.00, and kids under 12 free.
