SOUND + PSYCHEDELICS
Through the experiential lens of facilitators, artists and scientists working in this field, we will tune into the important role music and sound plays in these therapeutic and transformative settings.
From an early age, Dréa has been fascinated with the therapeutic aspects of sound and music. She has a background in audio engineering, psychoacoustic sound design, and music therapy - all of which she now weaves into her compositional style. After finishing her studies in music and engineering, she went on to study voice and traditional North Indian Classical music with mentors such as Silvia Nakkach, Shweta Jhaveri, and the late Ali Akbar Khan. These teachers helped her develop a relationship with music - one that was less focused on aesthetics and style, and more on crafting soundscapes that can gently influence both the nervous system and the deep emotional landscape of the listener.
