Chloë Goodchild in conversation with pianist, musician & coach, Daniel Barber, discussing compassion, improvisation, healing, performance, sound, music as metaphor, 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.
Daniel Barber led a wedding/dance band for over 10 years, performed with Asheville Playback Theatre (improv actor and musician), and has been a social worker, social scientist, video producer and political activist. He has led the Jubilee! Community World Beat Band in Asheville NC since 2001, playing a variety of jazz, blues, rock, Latin music to support and enrich the community's Sunday morning ritual celebrations.
Throughout his life, he has been stubbornly engaged in finding ways to make the world a better place.
In his work at I Am Sound, he helps people who are feeling stuck, out of tune and uncertain to inhabit their authentic creative selves on piano and elsewhere in their lives in the midst of whatever is going on around them.
He created a 6-phase process called TAP the Flow that integrates mindful awareness practices with his own music improvisation modality to help them connect with, own and express their natural genius in all areas of their lives.
This offers people a fun and rewarding pathway for embodying their deeper purpose and more fully inhabiting their own true place in the world.
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.
