The Big Quiet returns with something that’s never been done before… In collaboration with Kit and Ace and the Port Authority of NY, we’re taking over Santiago Calatrava’s new and stunning Oculus World Trade Center Transportation Hub. Reflecting the Oculus’s unique shape, we’re constructing 1000 seats in concentric circles for a massmeditation and sound experience, followed by a 360-degree string quartet, powerful vocalists, a surprise performance and live DJs. A simple technique will be shared for first time meditators and a portion of all ticket sales will support the H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 foundation.
This was pretty amazing. The MTA tried to shut it down but the Oculus people were into it so we did it flash-mob style with a few hundred meditators and armed soldiers in camoflaugeas well as anti-terrorism police wandering around. They were all very cool. Everyone loved it. Good times!
