Chloë Goodchild in conversation with violinist and Sound and Health Through Music workshop facilitator, Michael Braudy, discussing compassion, teaching, silence, music and much more.
The VOCE Dialogues offer a simple, accessible in-depth ground for poets, authors, musicians, visual artists, and visionary teachers to share and disseminate their insights about the transformative practice of contemplative, creative and compassionate communication.
Michael Braudy, a violinist in Western, North Indian and Celtic music, gives Sound and Health through Music workshops, which use the silence between musical experiences as the way to greater awareness of the body, emotions and mind. He is a versatile performer, and as an improviser he has collaborated with vocalists, storytellers and other creative artists. He studied Western violin with Raphael Bronstein and Dorothy Delay, and Indian music with Acharya Roop Verma, Pandit V.G. Jog and Pt. Krishna Bhatt. He has performed in the US, England and Scotland and India, including at the International Festival in Jaipur. He has recorded in India a series of Indian ragas for health CDs including Sumanas (Ragas for the Heart), Vriddhi and Awakening Peace.
Chloë Goodchild is an international singer, innovatory educator, author and founder of The Naked Voice (1990) and its UK Charitable Foundation (2004), dedicated to the realization of compassionate communication in all realms of human life. Deafness in childhood catalysed Chloë’s deep encounter with her inner self, and began a lifetime’s experiential research into the voice as a catalyst for personal evolution and global transformation.
