ANTENNAE

IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE

Description

ANTENNAE invites you to enter the movie of your life.
Here, you are the audience and performer, the dreamer and the dream, antennae and signal.

Described as a creative playground, slow disco, or ecstatic dance party,
you will take part in the spontaneous creation of a live film.

Led by creator Jason Rodi,
ANTENNAE is an ensemble of 12 musicians improvising what we've come to call "spiritual music", a transcendent sound that lifts the spirit, for which we are mere conduits.
The video installation stages Plato's allegory of the cave, immersing you in a world where
WE ARE ALL
ANTENNAE.

ANTENNAE is available for events, creative retreats, or live shows,
and also unfolds under each full moon at NOMADlife.tv.


ANTENNAE IS A WORD
ANTENNAE IS A SYMBOL
ANTENNAE IS THE SKY
ANTENNAE IS THE SIGNAL

ANTENNAE WE ARE ALL
ALWAYS FOREVER NOW
REMEMBER THE FUTURE
REMEMBER OUR SONG

ANTENNAE: A Living Narrative

ANTENNAE is not just an event; it's a living narrative, a canvas for the creation of our own mythologies in the ever-unfolding present. It's a collective journey where we become both the audience and the performer, the dreamers and the dream itself.  Each event is recorded and filmed for posterity, and available for streaming on all NOMADlife.tv apps (ROKU, FireTV, AndroidTV, AppleTV, iOS, Android, and YouTube).
 

Spiritual Music : A Transcendent Ensemble Experience

Like 12 apostles, the core ANTENNAE ensemble is an open band of 12 musicians + guests.  With piano, cello, electric, acoustic and bass guitars, harmonica, vocals, congas, steal and electric drums, flutes, saxophones, and more, we record about 90 minutes of original music at NOMAD each week, never playing the same thing twice.  We keep our music within the realm of neo-psychedelic, atmospheric, and cinematic aesthetics, which we've come to simply refer to as "spiritual music."  We hence renounce ownership of these spontaneous creations, acting as antennas, mere conduits for the music flowing through us.


The Installation: A Ballet of Shadows and Light
ANTENNAE stages Plato's allegory of the cave through a transformative installation involving a back projection screen and a large mirror, immersing you in a mesmerizing dance of shadows and light. Participants become integral to this dance, casting their silhouettes against images of antennas shot all over the world by Rodi, a poetic expression of the message WE ARE ALL ANTENNAE, and a celebration of the interconnectedness of all things.

Strawberry Moon ANTENNAE
Friday June 21st 9pm

Strawberry Moon.JPG

The Strawberry Moon symbolizes the fruition of early summer and the harvesting of first fruits.

This full moon serves as a reminder of the abundance and bounty of nature,
coinciding with a time when many fruits reach their peak ripeness and are ready for gathering.

If you feel the call to join this evening of music, visuals and movement, to experience ANTENNAE firsthand,
JOIN THE MOVEMENT.


ANTENNAE participants wear sunglasses.
The lighting is designed accordingly,
protecting our eyes from the projections,
and setting the stage for a metamorphosis of perception.
As the experience deepens, your lenses become windows to the 4th Dimension,
an augmented reality as profound and altering as that reached
through psychedelics or the most heightened meditative trance.

If you feel called to be part of this unique movement,
simply express your interest to j@NOMADlife.tv.

ANTENNAE is about connecting to oneself, to each other, and to the cosmos.
It's about being an antenna, channelling and reflecting what inhabits and surrounds us.
